Jobs for Veterans at Nestlé Purina
It's not where you stand. It's what you stand for. We hire veterans because it's more than an act of patriotism. Whether just coming home to the loved ones who missed you, or deploying for another mission, you've always met us wearing the same stoic smile. It's that same kind of 'Smile Tall' at Purina that has inspired us for over 100 years.
Helping you take advantage of available tools and find meaningful career opportunities.
Quotes from Our Associates
After leaving active duty in 1996, I worked for several companies over the next 5 years before landing at Purina where I've been now for 14+ years. While I learned a lot with each company, something was missing for me, which was the trust and support of the work community...the camaraderie, if you will...that is part of normal military life. I was looking for a work home that would value my contributions to the team and provide opportunities for my own professional growth and development. Given that I've been at Purina quite some time now, I think it is safe to say that I've found a place that meets those needs.

I found that my experience in the Navy provided me with the leadership and crisis management skills that helped me be more advanced than my peers when I entered into the corporate world. It was the unique opportunity for me as a nurse that initially drew me to Purina. But after joining, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of respect the company and associates had for veterans. They created a very positive environment for a veteran that I hadn't yet experienced in previous roles.

Military Title: Hospital Corpsman/HM3
I was looking for a company that would both exploit my current skill set, as well as have a strong moral compass and values that were similar to my own and that of the Marines that inspired me to stay for a full career. Purina's Five Talls almost match the Marine Corps values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment perfectly and also align with my family's love of animals, so it was a perfect fit for me. At Purina, there has been an endless amount of support and help offered in order to see that everyone is successful and part of the team. Very similar to the family atmosphere that is seen in the military and I feel fortunate to be a part of this new family.
