Careers At Post

Deep Roots, Continuing to Grow

The Post Cereal tradition dates back to 1895 when C. W. Post made his first batch of Postum in a little white barn in Battle Creek, Michigan. Since then, Post has grown into a brand leader — one of the top 3 in the cereal industry — that nourishes people’s lives with delicious cereals. We continue to grow with national favorites like Honey Bunches of Oats, Fruity and Cocoa Pebbles, and Grape-Nuts, and we are always looking for new products, employees and innovations to keep our business thriving.

We believe in building a fun, competitive and supportive team, operating with integrity, and creating a work environment that’s reflective of all the goodness in the wholesome products we make.

Battle Creek is a resurgent city, steeped in history as the birthplace of ready-to-eat cereal. Around the world, Battle Creek enjoys one of the highest levels of recognition for a city of its size. C.W. Post chose Battle Creek to start his company, one based on good nutrition from unlocking the wholesome goodness of grains. The first product manufactured by Post was Postum, a grain-based hot nutritional drink that gave rise to quality cereal brands loved by generations of families across North America. Many other cereal-based companies were established in the Battle Creek area, and some, including Post, thrived for generations.

Today, Battle Creek boasts a diverse manufacturing foundation, military base, strong educational and medical institutions and great communities. A vibrant central business district supports arts and entertainment venues, and a completely revitalized downtown captures the character of our strong industrial past and future.

Just minutes from Kalamazoo, with Western Michigan University, and a short drive to Detroit, with access to world travel and major league sports teams, Battle Creek rises between the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo rivers and along Interstate 94. Michigan is known for its outdoor activities and Battle Creek embraces that culture with bike paths, water sports, hot air ballooning and winter sports.

A city combining all the hustle and bustle one might want, with the strong sense of community and connectedness people need, Battle Creek is a natural choice for young professionals or established families with bright futures.
