Premier Nutrition Corporation (PNC) distributes nutritional food products to a health-conscious consumer base under the brand names of Premier Protein, PowerBar, Supreme Protein, and Joint Juice. With its “People First” culture, PNC treats employees with positivity and empathy, and embraces new and innovative ideas that spark passion, personal growth, and a healthy dose of fun around the office—for example, bringing dogs to work, company-wide volunteer days, philanthropy and sustainability programs, in-office massages; and we believe in respecting your own personal good energy needs by encouraging walking meetings and workouts with corporate sponsored gym membership to City Sports gym.

What’s it like to work here? Picture the scrappy culture of a start-up, the resources and systems of a respected consumer brand under the Post Holdings umbrella, and the innovativeness of a tech company and you’ve got a sense of what it feels like to work here. You’ll walk into the office each Monday morning and find a hundred+ of your colleagues sitting on sofas, bean bags, overstuffed pillows, the floor, or chairs—if that’s your jam—talking through the week ahead and learning about each other.

Big and small wins are recognized regularly, and all employees strive to empower and inspire each other daily—leading to a close-knit, highly engaged team atmosphere. Furthermore, senior leaders encourage and facilitate employees to get outside their comfort zones and learn practice areas beyond their current job description. The result is an accelerated personal growth trajectory with the opportunity to work alongside and learn from other teams. PNC is seeking an individual who will enjoy this team-oriented business environment and will be a leader in this high-growth company.

Premier Nutrition utilizes a third-party network for manufacturing, warehousing and distribution. Post Holdings is comprised of the Active Nutrition portfolio, which includes PNC, Dymatize,­­­ and Active Nutrition International (protein bars, shakes and powder products), Post Consumer Brands (cereals), Michael Foods (eggs, potato, cheese, and pasta), Weetabix, and private label business groups, and is rapidly expanding via acquisition, including the recent acquisition of Bob Evans Farms, a leader in frozen breakfast meats and vegetables.
