Cons: no advancement, leadership, long hours and unsafe work environment
The workday consisted of 12-14 hour days with a 30 minute lunchbreak. The hardest part of the job was getting individuals to care about the product and the consumers it was delivered to instead of cutting corners.
forklift driver (Former Employee), DeKalb, IL – November 26, 2012
Pros: it was a great place to work
Cons: the hours were kind of wierd
Nestle was interesting from day to day, I learned that whatever you do you are not safe from being let go. My co-workers were all very easy to get along with and if I had any questions or problems they were willing to help me out. The hardest part of the job was learning the computer system and the most enjoyablepart was that they did feed us from time – more... to time – less
Nestle is a good company to work for. Assoicates have the opportunity to post to jobs in other departments where they are available.
Logistics Team Leader (Former Employee), Danville, VA – November 26, 2012
Pros: opportunities, good working environment
Cons: not understanding fully requirements of the department.
Responsible for warehouse within the facility as well as outside warehouse. Managed at least 35 associate for three shifts of operation. Responisble for tractor-trailer as well as driver. Responsible for all materials(raw, packaging,bulk cream and eggs,), and shipping finished products. Inventory Control and Audits for both departments. Daily working – more... with the paroll system(Kronos). Working closely with Scheduling and Production Departments as well as Safety and Sanitation. Co-workers were informative and learn at lot about the relationship between their departments and the department that I was responsible for. In managing three shifts and an outside warehouse sometimes I felt that I did not spend as much one on one with the associates which made the job a little difficult. Training was very important as well as having enough equipment. The most enjoyment part was when the associates celebrated achievements. Whether it was completing a forklift training, finally learning how to inventory their area correctly, leaning FIFO, SAP, or a personal achievement. Enjoyed Associate evaluations. My success came from their success stories. I enjoyed working, sharing, teaching and just overall communication with associates at this facility. – less

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Ft. Wayne,IN – October 14, 2012
Pros: very good benefits and pay
Cons: too much harrassement and tons of paperwork.
I don't know about the other plants for Nestle, but the Fort Wayne plant is terrible. I loved what I did, but most of the time I was harrassed just trying to do my job. The management was too busy trying to save their own jobs, and never took responsibility for anything they did. It was suppossed to be about teamwork and nobody in my dept. was a team. – more... Their wqas no training and no room for advancement. If you didn't drink the kool-aid, they targeted you until you were gone. They expected you to hold a higher standard than themselves. – less
