We’re a “safety first” culture driven by a zero defect and zero waste mentality set out to enrich the lives of pets everywhere. Over 100 years in existence, we’ve grown our passionate Purina Family as we’ve grown the breadth of our business. As a Forklift Operator, you’ll join our factory in Davenport, Iowa which is home to our largest manufacturing facility since 1927. Originally producing cereal, the factory became a pet food-only manufacturer in the late ‘90’s and as the largest pet food manufacturing facility in the U.S., it carefully produces, packages and ships several varieties of our Dog Chow®, Puppy Chow®, Alpo®, Beneful®, Nestlé Purina ONE®, Cat Chow®, Kitten Chow®, Friskies® and Kit N Kaboodle® brands.

As a Forklift Operator, you will perform a variety of tasks within our warehouse including loading trucks, unloading trucks, case picking product, and staging finished product as it is released from our packing area. Successful candidates must maintain a great attendance record and must be able to work overtime and off shifts.

Primary Responsibilities:

Operate forklifts with various attachments (pull-pack, slip sheet, etc.) in a bustling warehouse

Safely load/unload trailers ensuring weight distribution, load integrity, and all shipping instructions are followed

Move finished product from the production line and store it in the correct location in the warehouse

Case pick product following all guidelines using an RF scanner, hand wrap and label products, and stage in the appropriate location

Ensure a clean and safe production environment including sanitation and cleaning

Regularly lift items up to 55 pounds

All other duties as assigned



High school diploma or GED required


1 years of forklift experience in a production, manufacturing, military or related environment

To our veterans and separated service members—you’re at the forefront of our minds as we recruit top talent to join Nestlé 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 Nestlé Purina home.
