Customer Master Data Specialist (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 14 August 2018
I worked at Purina briefly and had a great experience. They value work life balance. The management is very open and understanding and they keep all employees in the loop about how the company is progressing.
The employees in my department were welcoming and helpful as were the surrounding departments.
It was a place where I was mostly officially trained.

Purchase Planning Coordinator (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 21 June 2017
Working at Nestle Purina was a wonderful experience. Employees and colleagues were good, helpful and supportive, that also includes top management and HR. Pets were allowed at work place (not that I had one). In summer, Friday's were half day which I did not see in many other companies. You could buy employee discounted products once in a week.
My time at Nestle Purina was great and I would recommend anybody to work at this company.

Head of Continuous Improvement (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 12 January 2016
8 to 4 pm type work day generally speaking. it is a business casual environment. for the most part the work environment is positive. Management team positive and goal oriented. biggest challenge was convincing management that lean six sigma was the next cultural change effort needed to allow for competitive advantage. Most enjoyable was the people who work there. Everybody was friendly...
Safety oriented, clean workplace. Bonus based on goals set at the beginning of the year. Continuous improvement is our mindset. We all work as a team.
Production Data Control & Backup Prod. Supervisor (Current Employee) – Caledonia, ON – 10 December 2015
Everyone works as a team, helping each other working efficiently and safely. It is unfortunate that the facility will become a distribution center on January 29, 2016, but that is part of change. We have daily morning meetings to review the challenges of the day before then have an end of shift meeting with key operators to discuss efficiency's of the day and the improvements needed. I can't say enough about the interaction of hourly and salary personnel working together to fulfill a common goal to correct any bottlenecks in the production chain. I think the hardest part of the position is engaging people who are not computer literate to understand SAP and really, they do very well and want to learn. Good morning to everyone you meet is not something that is said in passing, it comes from the heart and taking the time to listen to that one person that might have a personal problem, from home or at work means something to them and I listen and give support where I can.
Celebration of achievemtents or milestones is promoted almost monthly - such as a production record, 5 yrs. of no lost time to mention a couple.
