No work life balance
Sanitation Manager (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CADecember 6, 2017
Long work days no work life balance limited support from HR. All HR issues had to be solved by Supervisors only when needed HR was available. All associates worked to many hours to meet demand limited resources from corporate to alleviate this issue, basically get it done regardless. Older plant is in need of face lift again corporate lacks interest in investing money only until issues arise.
Pros
Salary & benifits
Cons
No work life balance

The culture isn't consistent - so much depends on who you work for.
Team Lead/Intergrated Marketing Services (Former Employee) –  Franklin, TNNovember 25, 2017
Mars talks about their 5 principles, which are great. They rarely follow them and are constantly making excuses on why they aren't following them. If they stood by their core values, it would be a much different place. It is also important to note that each department runs so differently. You could have a totally different experience based on who/where you report.
Pros
Good compensation.
Cons
Horrible work culture.

The people
Senior Manager of Customer Marketing (Former Employee) –  Franklin, TNNovember 17, 2017
They want to be a great place to work, but there are people working there that are difficult to work with. The family (owners) are awesome, but mid level leadership can get in the way.
Pros
Take your dog to work
Cons
difficult people

MASTER DATA ANALYST (Former Employee) –  TennesseeNovember 9, 2017
It was a good job, very competitive. Lacked training in systems that a person may not have been exposed to prior. It required a lot of independent learning.

Shift Manager (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHNovember 8, 2017
Tough place to be at. Rotating shifts grind you down. PM takes care of his own. Mistakes are rarely forgiven. Once you are classified, extremely difficult to change perception.

High performance culture, great benifits
Shift Lead (Former Employee) –  Washington CourthouseNovember 3, 2017
Mar's Petcare Washington Courthouse is an awesome place to work! The work is challenging and the hours can be long but that is the price of being the number one team in the Mar's global network.

Mar's is an extremely quality and safety conscious organization with a high focus on sustainability and doing the right thing for the community. On the large scale, an example of this commitment is investing in a wind farm to offset 100% of power usage and on a local scale, volunteering to update the local Humane Society including paying employees for the day spent doing the work. There are countless examples of commitment at every level of the organization.

If you are willing to work hard and want more than just a job, this could be a great place for you!
Pros
Great benifits, supportive work environment
Cons
Shift work, sometimes very long hours

Good business. Must be quick to adapt to change.
Strategic Sourcing Manager, Proteins (Former Employee) –  Franklin, TNOctober 29, 2017
It is a fast growing business from many acquisitions. It is in a steep learning curve as it tries to manage these new businesses and bring it all under one roof. The associates are great to work with and compensation was very competitive.

palletizer
Pallet Sorter (Former Employee) –  Tracy, CAOctober 18, 2017
I would load various weighted bags of dog & cat food onto pallets to their spectated packaging requirement to be shipped. Then using the forklift move the pelleted bags of dog or cat food to the palletizer to be shrink wrap. After that was completed I would move the to the other side of the where house to be held until they were ready to be shipped.

SMX Temp (Current Employee) –  Fort Smith, AROctober 5, 2017
When the lines are running really well we stay very busy. It seems to be a good place to work if you are full time, but being a temp it is not that great pay wise.
Pros
Free coffee and sometimes food
Cons
short breaks, it is temp work right now.

Shift Warehouse Manager (Former Employee) –  Mattoon, IL 61938September 27, 2017
This was a good place to work. The hours are a little tough but, having days off during the week are good. It's a 12hr swing shift. A very clean factory. Several benefits with discounts on pet food. If you work in the office, you can bring your dog to work with you.

Mars Petcare
District Manager (Former Employee) –  Franklin, TNAugust 18, 2017
Mars was a good place to work.

Set clear expectations and offered a great deal of training.

Product quality was unmatched in the industry.

Marketing department was fuzzy and disjointed; I believe if there was a dedicated team for the brand it would have been very helpful.

A very poor decision if you decide to work here.
Mill Operator (Former Employee) –  Clinton, OKAugust 15, 2017
Mars Petcare is probably one of the worst Milling operations I have seen. I've got 13 years experience in feed Milling and these guys book knows more than I do. From day one I was told that the turnover rate was very very low but the first week I was there there were six people terminated. If you have any grievances with the supervisors they will find a reason to terminate you.
Pros
Pay Is okay.
Cons
Supervisors know more regardless of your experience, mandatory overtime, they will come 15 minutes before your shift in and tell you you have to work overtime, no breaks.

It gets hot in the summer
