Production Operator

Job Description

Nestled in southeast Missouri, Bloomfield is a small town with a rich history - and we've been proud to call Bloomfield home to one of our litter factories since 1995. This factory was the first to produce Lightweight litter, which has revolutionized the category within the pet care industry - a product that weighs half the amount of conventional litter.

Unique to this factory is an overhead bridge that allows full pallets of finished products to be conveyed to the distribution warehouse just north of the factory. This innovation, in conjunction with various others, played a meaningful role in Nestl Purina earning the Malcolm Baldrige Award in manufacturing. In 2020, our Bloomfield factory is undergoing a 110,000-square-foot expansion in processing and packaging.

This is a $115 million investment, allowing Nestl Purina to meet the growing demand from cat owners. With short commutes to St. Louis, Kansas City and the Lake of the Ozarks-you can enjoy day-trips to popular attractions nearby or take pride in the great schools, local businesses and tight-knit community Bloomfield has to offer.

As a Production Operator, what will you contribute to our team? You'll operate litter lines and all associated equipment in a safe and efficient manner while maintaining all aspects of the line by continuously monitoring and making adjustments to equipment as needed.

You will ensure that the line is continuously supplied with raw materials from the warehouse. This position requires the ability to successfully perform all functions of the task training guidelines. You'll also review and actively participate in risk assessments as well as successfully achieving position qualifications through evaluations.

Primary responsibilities:

  • Operate production lines in packaging, clumping and/or processing

  • Supply line and associated equipment with all raw materials- jugs, pails, caps, cases, bags, pallets, etc. from the warehouse

  • Fill jugs, boxes, bags, pails, and palletize

  • Ensure that products meet applicable quality standards. This includes inspection for quality during operation and performing all required sampling and testing

  • Assure the continuous and smooth operation of the lines for required quality and quantity

  • Make all necessary adjustments to equipment, including changeovers as necessary

  • Maintain housekeeping standards

Basic Qualifications:

Education:

High school Diploma or GED

Experience:

6 months of manufacturing experience, military experience, experience in a fast-paced work environment or related course work

To our veterans and separated service members-you're at the forefront of our minds as we recruit top talent to join Nestl Purina. The skills you've gained while serving our country, such as adaptability, agility, and leadership, are much like the skills that will make you successful in this role. We hope you'll consider sharing in our mission-you'll join a cohort of others who have chosen to call Nestl Purina home.
