What's the recruiting process like?
We highly value your time, so we move as quickly as we can throughout the process. You must apply online to a posted position in order to be considered for any of our roles at Nestlé Purina. Once we receive your application, we will communicate with you by email and/or phone to inform you quickly as to any next steps. We require a phone interview, as well as one round of face-to-face or virtual interviews with the team in which you would work with on the job.

I recently applied to a posted position. How can I check the status of my application?
You'll receive an automated confirmation by email that your information was received. If you do not receive this communication from us, first check your spam folder. If nothing lands in your spam, there is a chance your online application was somehow not completed. In this case, please sign back in using the credentials you created. Upon successful application submission, you can log back in at any time using those same credentials to see the status of your application through our recruiting process. As you know, system glitches can happen, but we aim to ensure you receive appropriate communications in a timely manner from our Talent Sourcing Team. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your application submission, you can contact our NesCareers Support Team at: 1-877-204-8650 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If I'm not willing to relocate from where I currently live, are there opportunities to work virtually?
There may be opportunities for virtual work depending on the position. However, we aim to bring our talent onsite when and where possible as we strongly value our company culture, collaboration, and the relationships we build on the job.

Can employees really bring their dogs to work every day?
Yes! Well, sort of. At our headquarters location where nearly 3,000 associates work – yes. In our factories and some of our satellite sales office locations, unfortunately, pets can't accompany us to work. In order to bring your pet to work in the approved locations, you must "apply" through our Pets-in-the-Workplace program to ensure your pet is potty-trained, well mannered, and vaccinated. On any given day, there are up to 100 dogs on campus that stay with their owners in a "gated" cubicle or in an enclosed office. Our on-site dog park, "The Bark Yard", is an hot spot throughout the day for associates to take their pets out for fresh air, exercise, and socialization. Why we believe pets are important in our workplace.
