Production Operator (Current Employee) – Hope, BC – 24 January 2017
Pay is pretty good when you add the benefits you receive when promoted to full time. Everyone starts as a contract worker. Communication and maintaining staffing levels are the biggest challenges that face this company every year.
Began TPM journey in 2016, 5S and 5 whys are big part of the company now. Problem solving and finding root causes are highly encouraged.

They really take care of their employees, feel appreciated, (little bonuses & benefits to take advantage of). Involved in the community, as in, they really give back. Decent pay schedule and benefit package. Would go back in a minute.
MACHINE OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 12 August 2016
12 hour shifts and only a break every 5 hours how to change over machines lack of organization some were very nice and helpful but many were tight lip and would not share tips and tricks working the 12 hours working with people who were helpful
12 hr shifts at full throttle, operating oversized forklifts very dangerous.
Licensed Twin Load forklift operator (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 5 July 2016
The workplace safety was more than most places but the grueling 12 hr shifts were totally unsafe and there were no places for rest when burn out set in. People were ok to work with but wages were 16.00 hr and at todays cost of living it was like living on 10/hr. Not a great career move in my opinion.
Line Operator (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 2 March 2016
Nestle is a great company to work for. They takes safety very serious. The atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed. Team leaders are very helpful and are always willing to leaned a hand when it is needed.
Productive , Always new things to learn , lots of people to help along the way
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 2 February 2016
I was doing machine operating and this job was good, long 12 hour shifts, but that you got a few days off after working 3 days straight, the people I worked with were good and treated me well, which i believe is very important in a workplace.
Long hours, frequent shift switching, three-day weekends
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Aberfoyle, ON – 2 September 2015
Fairly good company to work for. Not much management/employee interaction. Sometimes difficult to adjust to changing shifts. However, three-day weekends were nice and we were left to work autonomously and had infrequent, yet respectful interactions with management.

Quality Assurance (Former Employee) – Hope, BC – 2 November 2013
Good benefits, fast paced environment. Poor management, blames employees for issues that should be addressed at a higher level. Favoritism abounds at this location. If you are looking for a decent wage without the security of full time, and don't mind giving them every free hour of your life, but being expected and guilt tripped into giving more, then this is the place for you.
Some of the people are great, and that makes it easier to work your 12 hour shifts. No day is ever the same, but politics and blame games abound.
I worked as a temp for Nestle until I had an accident which caused me to be unable to walk, If the accident had not have happened i would still be working there, however now that I have had time off I feel the need to gain experience in different job environments. While i worked there I honed my skills as a forklift driver at the end of a production line, and within a busy warehouse. It is because of this i was able to learned to deal with adverse situations quickly and efficiently.
great co-workers, and great learning experience
long 12 hour shifts, and continental shift, and the switch between night and day shift.
