The typical day involved operating the steam boilers that produced culinary quality steam used in the production of Stouffer's Frozen Food products.

Sanitation Worker (Former Employee), Mount Sterling, KY – February 2, 2013
Pros: pay is good
Cons: no training
You clock in and go to your team lead and ask where will you be working, and they tell you your area. You get to your area and there's no one to train you and you are expected learn from watching other workers who have no training on the job area, so basically your on your own. When it's break time no one is informed you hear from other workers. And – more... when your shift is over you team lead is suppose to let you know, but instead you find out that your team lead has already left without releasing his shift workers. – less

Team Leader/Supervisor (Current Employee), Lehigh Valley – January 28, 2013
Pros: flexible scheduling
Cons: boring, disrespectful co-workers
When I first started working there I loved the job, but as time went on I felt stuck and there was no place for advancement. Employees don't have any respect for their peers. I learned that you can never rely on a co-worker to help you out and you should never depend on anyone.
I enjoyed my time at Nestle until i got married. When i was single I had as much hours as I wanted. I had a decent job with great pay. The benefits take alot out of your pay check. It all went down hill when i got married. They made me choose my family or work. I would be there from 1pm and get out at 6 am and get no recognition for it.
interacting on a day-to-day basis with colleagues from various departments, mainly production with quality related issues. there is team work with certain colleagues and assistance but the most difficult bit would be trying to convince people why certain things qulaity related needs to be done and when there is a new procedure or instruction. along – more... with that would be the constant fire-fighting that quality department has to endure. the work itself is quite interesting and enjoyable especially when its a contributor to the many projects being run at the plant. – less

Depressing, Some Very Poor Manufacturing Leaders, Always Getting Audited
Supervisor (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CA – December 28, 2012
Pros: fair compensation, hourly employees care about the supervisors
Cons: work life balance is bad, inconsistency in how employees are treated, manufacturing leadership is very inconsistent, company sometimes doesn't live up to its"values"
Readily able to point out the faults of employees but unable to hold the company acountable its own stated "values". Its all about production numbers no matter what lip service is given to other things. Completely random in terms of how employees are treated. Some are held to a very high standard while others are incompetent. There is no recourse for – more... the incompetence of certain manufacturing management except to execute poorly thought out plans. Flavor of the Month happens in many situations. Manufacturing is unable to hold people accountable and this leaves supervisors hanging on difficult issues when manufacturing leadership is too weak to act. – less
