Understaffed and overworked
Forklift Operator (Former Employee), AberfoyleApril 10, 2014
Pros: not much
Cons: hours, management
12 hour shifts, no coverage for breaks, almost dangerous pace and don't get hurt or the company will get rid of you a quick as possible and try and deny your injury.

Nothing you give is enough
Quality Assurance (Former Employee), Hope, BCNovember 2, 2013
Pros: free coffee
Cons: management
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.

Production Resource (Former Employee), Guelph, ONJune 12, 2012
Fast paced environment
You will learn many things as a supervisor here which you may not learn in other environements.
Managment wants to see change and results, but also needs to change the atmosphere within a high maintenace environment.
Hardest part of the job would be being on nights, but it also is the time where you will learn the most.

Didn't get a fair shake.
Palletizer (Former Employee), Dallas,TxJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: learning to operate different equipment.
Cons: work schedule.
A typical work day was okay but sometimes stressful.
I learned how to operate different types of machines and equipment.
Management didn't have a open door policy like they say they do.
The hardest part of the job was not knowing the work schedule until the end of the week.
The most enjoyable part is being able to provide for my family.

Laid back company
Production Operator (Current Employee), Dallas, TXJanuary 1, 2015
Great company, very laid back, you are essentially your own boss while working as an operator. Benefits are great, 12 hour shifts but you get used to it. Walk a lot and stay busy!

Good place to work and learn new skills
Seasonal Raw Material Handler (Former Employee), Breinigsville, PADecember 22, 2014
Pros: occasional free lunches. holiday gatherings and picnics for employees and their families.
Cons: lots of seasonal positions but not enough permanant positions
A typical work day is usaully a busy one. Ive learned new skills in the plastic manufacturing field. Management was very much on top of production goals and if it was not met it would have to be discussed in order to prevent not meeting goals again. The hardest part was when we had a high production goals but not enough manpower to meet them. The enjoyable part was working with great co-workers.

Great Drivers and blue collar employees
Route Relief Specialist (Former Employee), Lanham, MDDecember 18, 2014
Pros: lunches sometimes
Cons: new managers not knowing the water buisness
Nestle was a great company to work for and it had great benefits. The drivers were very fun to be around and we worked well as a team. I learned a lot from Nestle Waters such as sales, route management, warehouse management and operation management. The hardest part of the job was lifting over 350 bottles/cases of water each and everyday. The most enjoyable part of the job was being by yourself on most days making deliveries. Nestle brought in a new management team from a very large package delivery company and they tried to run a salary position (Deer Park) like a union and hourly job which wasn't working when I left. A typical workday was when everyone came to work I would run a team of 13 drivers and then ride with drivers that would have trouble completing routes or low performers to help them. Most days we had to jump in a truck and deliver because we were always short staffed.

Watch your back and always have a fallback plan
Peon (Former Employee), TexasNovember 27, 2014
Pros: free water, coworkers were great, healthcare
Cons: management doesn't care about anyone, including the success of the company
Good place to work temporarily, just don't count on making it a career. As soon as you start feeling like all is going well and nothing could go wrong...RUN! Never rest on the satisfaction that you've done a great job, gave it all you had and cared about trying to make this company great. Because guess what? They don't need you. You are completely disposable. Do yourself a favor and find a job somewhere else.

They Should Install an ACTUAL Revolving Door
QA Technician/Micorbiologist (Current Employee), Denver, CONovember 16, 2014
Pros: ease of being hired
Cons: the atmosphere, work/life balance, hours, required overtime, constant understaffing, inept management, lack of organization
The shift I was told I would be working and that I agreed to work was to inclued a MAXIMUM of two 12 hour shift a work week. The second week I was there, I began my rotating schedule of three consecutive 12 hour shifts one week and four consecutive 12 hour shifts the second week.

I was not given proper training because my boss quit my third week there, one of the other techs was completely inept and pushed out of the department, and the only other tech had to take time off for family issues. Understaffing is obviously a huge issue as well.

The environment is also a very negative and non-nuturing one. People quit in droves on a monthly basis, and production operators are regularly scheduled for 70 hour work weeks. I was also told on my first day that no one is forced to work overttime, yet here I am scheduled for an average of 44 hours a week and the production operators are worked to the bone, without volunteering to do so. On a week that I had to go into the doctor because I was sick 2 out of the first 4 weeks I worked, I was scheduled to work 54 hours. Work-life balance is a laughable concept at this company.

Management is again, laughable. The quality department alone was in complete disarray, organization was clearly a foreign concept and keeping people that STILL could not understand the responsibilities of their position after 5 months is just negligent. It seems like this statement can be applied across the board.
