Job description

P&G is the largest consumer packaged goods company in the world. We have operations in over 75 countries, with 65 trusted brands that improve lives for 5 billion consumers worldwide. This brings many advantages, including the opportunity for our employees to enjoy a diverse and rewarding lifelong career filled with new and exciting challenges. Our 24/7 Auburn, Maine manufacturing site is seeking Forklift Drivers to join the Logistics Department supporting critical business needs.

At Auburn we manufacture most of P&G's tampon production for distribution within the overall Feminine Care business unit. Here we model our approach to work after several core values: culture of safety - nothing we do is worth getting hurt - utmost emphasis on quality, as well as placing confidence and trust in our people and systems.

Forklift Drivers are vital to the success of our business at P&G. The Logistics Department maintains production across the site by safely moving critical materials within the facility, replenishing automation systems, and ensuring materials and product meet P&G’s quality expectations.

P&G'ers are curious, not afraid to challenge the status quo, and ultimately a team player.

We also provide you with the opportunity to expand into electrical, quality assurance, safety and hygiene, and other areas of functional expertise.  Although you will begin your career and progress within Logistics department, future business needs will determine whether you remain in Logistics or have the opportunity to transfer to another operating department within the site, where you will gain additional training and skills.
