QA Analyst/Ingredient Specialist (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 7 March 2019
Working at Nestle Purina is always a challenge each day. Always new learnings in QA as an Ingredient Specialist/QA Analysts. Management is always fair to all employees. Workplace is fun, full of stress at times when dealing with product with issues like QA Holds in some cases. Hardest part of the job is when we are required to work on weekends at times or cover for somebody who will call and sick or on vacation, so you need to work 12hours. Most enjoyable part is working with co-employees in the factory.
At times we get FREE meals especially if we hit our goals. Holiday FREE lunches as well.
You need to work 12hours as needed or weekend work schedule.
Toxic environment , poor management and lack of preventive maintenance of equipment common. Unhelpful human resources department and poor trainng
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 11 December 2018
Bad management and high turnover rates among supervisors and staff along with very unhelpful human resources department and large numbers of salaried workers are in meetings all day and get all the perks . Poor bonuses and injured workers are giving paperwork duties on the job instead of being allowed to heal from injuries at home on compensation. Favoritism among managers and employees is a common issue. Plant closures and ongoing layoffs occurring regularly for hourly workers and not salaried.
Great pay and Benefits, Fabulous people to work with

Working at Nestle Purina Petcare was a wonderful experience not only with the daily Work and routine Preventive Maintenance we have but also working with Fabulous people who are kind and respectful. Working at Nestle Purina Petcare was enjoyable and professionally sound you learn a lot in our day to day work. Practicing safety is their one of their strengths they take seriously the safety on the plant. Safety training monthly is mandatory and other safety training on like forklift and lifts are done at certain amount of years. Bonuses are given quarterly who gives out review and projects on Safety. Greatest job I ever had and would like to come to work everyday because of this. work and life is balanced and overtime is available to those who wants extra time on the weekends.
