Benefits & Perks
Comprehensive Health Benefits Package
You'll receive a variety of medical, dental and vision package options to choose from based on your lifestyle and health needs. These packages include options for family members and domestic partners. Life insurance, disability and employee assistance are offered at no cost to the associate. Also offered are a variety of cost-saving preventative opportunities through Nestlé's HealthWorks program — our onsite associate health and wellness program.
Employee Assistance Program
You're offered free, confidential access to professional counselors trained to help with a variety of personal or family issues.
Onsite Weight Management Programs
Your health matters to us. We offer various programs, depending on your location, to help you exceed your lifestyle goals.
Parental Support Policy
Recognized as one of the most progressive policies for our industry, we are proud to offer up to 18 weeks of paid leave for a designated primary caregiver. Primary caregivers can elect up to a potential total of 26 weeks. If you're not the primary caregiver, you are offered up to four weeks of paid leave following the birth, adoption, or foster care placement of a child.
Child Adoption Assistance Program
Adopting a child is such a special time in your life, and we're proud to help you cover some of the costs. Please note: there are some variances in program details for specific employee groups.
Infant Formula Program
If you have an infant up to 12 months old, you'll receive 32 store coupons for any type of Nestlé Infant Formula — compliments of being part of the Nestlé family.
Pet Adoption Assistance Program
Every pet deserves a loving home. If you plan to give a dog or cat a new home, whether from a breeder or from a rescue organization, we give you $200 to help offset the cost of bringing a pet into your life. Visit Petfinder to begin the process of growing your family.
Bonus Plan Eligibility
All full-time associates are eligible for a short-term incentive program based on the company's annual performance.
401K Matching Program
You put money in — and we match it. You'll save on a before-tax basis through convenient payroll deductions. Even at the entry level, it's never too early to start thinking about retirement.
Rewarding good work is necessary – and we like to give you more than a pat on the back. Depending on what motivates you, you can take home gifts or receive experiences you may not otherwise have. The best part about it? You get to choose.
Being part of a corporation as large as ours allows you to reap some big rewards, like discounts when purchasing a vehicle, renting a vehicle, buying a new cell phone (or phone plan), starting up a health program or purchasing consumer products.
Training & Development
Regardless of your role or where you perform your everyday job for Purina, our Associate Development Center at our corporate Headquarters in St. Louis is a place we've designed specifically to train and develop you throughout your career. We bring associates and partners in from around the world to learn in this facility – and you're no exception. Aside from in-class learning, there are thousands of online courses and resources to continue honing your skills.
Thinking about going back to school to help grow your career? We offer reimbursement to help cover tuition costs, books and additional fees.
Paid Time Off
We all need some quality "me" time. And occasionally we (or our family members) get sick. You'll accrue earned paid time off each month to take the necessary time you need. Additionally, you'll enjoy several paid holidays and two "floating" days of your choice throughout the year.
