Team Leader, Maintenance

Job Description
For more than 100 years, Purina has been revolutionizing pet food production, and its ability to enrich the lives of pets everywhere. By 1956, mastering new production techniques, we literally reshaped pet care, introducing Dog Chow as the first extruded dry food. We're still at it today, with Tidy Cats, the lightweight cat litter champion of the world and the leader in our category. Such leadership requires constant innovation and renovation, which is so often rooted in our world-class food production standards.

As a Maintenance Team Leader, you'll lead and develop maintenance team members while overseeing all maintenance projects, preventative maintenance and repair work. Working within our factories will give you a strong sense of our safety-first and continuous improvement culture. From you, this position requires strong leadership skills and knowledge of maintenance concepts. You must mentor staff, contribute to continuous process improvement and ensure proper sanitation and safety guidelines are being met.

In this role, you'll be stationed within our factory in Crete, Nebraska (about 25 miles from Lincoln), which is one of the largest wet pet food manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and proudly in operation for over 50 years. We mass produce of over three million cans of wet pet food per day, which include our Alpo, Purina ONE, Pro Plan, Friskies and Purina Veterinary Diets brands. Our factory is home to a new cutting-edge line that will challenge your automation and robotics curiosity. This role will primarily be scheduled for day shift but you will be required to work one to two overnight weekend shifts per month and be on call.

We're a global organization known widely as a 'Best Place to Work'. Our culture continuously dares us to Stand Taller and ask "what's next?" Are you up to the dare?
