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 – more... 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. – less

A company that trains you professionally.
Purchasing Officer (Current Employee), Riyadh, S01October 30, 2013
Pros: fix overtime pays and incentives
Cons: incapability of some hired employees that does not suit in their positions.
Upon entering inside the factory compound, I always smile and say to myself, I am one of the factors why all the machines are in good condition and the production runs smoothly. Making Purchase Orders and communication to suppliers are the main task I perform from day to day. I learn how to be more professional and pro active in work. The management – more... specially my immediate superior always give compliments and encouraging words to keep up and continue looking forward. Urgent requirements are the difficult tasks in purchasing, this requires immediate attention and should be processed instantly to avoid production downtime. But the most enjoyable part is that when you accomplished that work and you have done the job.
Hard-work, humility and honesty are the three attitudes I always carry and serve as my weapons to attain my dreams. – less

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.

Great employees that are overworked by uppper management that is clueless
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee), Ventura, CAApril 12, 2014
Pros: great people to work with, most unit leaders are really good, lots of good customers.
Cons: overworked, upper management is so out of touch as to what the job takes to do, doesn't give enough power to unit leaders to run things.
It is a great job theoretically. The culture since Nestle took over from it being just Arrowhead has killed the employee morale and the reputation. For so long other water delivery companies couldn't compare to working for Arrowhead. Since Nestle the culture has been crushed and the disconnect from upper management is a joke. There were and continue – more... to be some really great people in the company and unfortunately the people that are put in higher positions like John Counts are a joke. You have someone that doesn't understand one aspect of what the delivery side of the business takes physically or mentally. The company had turned into a bunch of people in offices looking at computers and print outs to determine how to run routes instead of getting out there and seeing what drivers go through and how changes effect things. Most changes put drivers in more unsafe work practices by taking away some of the power they had to manage their route. They should empower the unit leaders to build the business more since they have much better ideas and capabilities. – less

joke!
applicant (Former Employee), Pennsauken NjMarch 23, 2014
This company was a complete waste of my time, I did 2 phone interviews and aced them both, was sent on a "ride along" which was actually 12 hrs of "free labor" and aced that! Only to be told I had another interview after all of that, I went on that interview with two idiots asking a bunch of stupid questions only to receive a rejection email! Total – more... waste of time. – less

Overworked and Underpaid **NO OVERTIME**
Route Sales Representative (Current Employee), Dallas, TxMarch 12, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: 12hrs plus a day, high turnover rate, heavy work loads. no room for advancement and the harder you work the more work you get
Nestle has a extremely high turnover rate. Depending on the route you get most driver's work 12 plus hrs a day with unattainable sales goals.

Nestle will try to sell you the idea there is money to be made in quarterly bonuses. Be prepared to consistently receive counseling on selling cups, cases, and sweet leaf tea receiving NO compensation for it. – more... You will be criticized on a daily basis by your Unit Leader. Goals not being met will start a write up process or "Performance Improvement Plan" on top of working 12hr days.

If you like working long hours and constantly being micro managed this job is not for you. Nestle gets away from paying overtime by labeling you as "Route Sales" when you are actually a delivery driver.

On the positive side the benefits are good and it's a good job for 2 to 3 years. – less

Long hours, easy work, horrible communication
Blow Mold Operator (Current Employee), Breinigsville, PAFebruary 28, 2014
Pros: compensation, breaks, co-workers, holidays, job itself
Cons: management, accountability, advancement, hours
Great company when I started 2 years ago. Quickly going down hill all around. Employees running machines they're not even trained efficiently on, huge lack of communication and under-qualified resources. Quality of product slowly diminishing. Accountability at this plant is non-existent anymore.Compensation is great. Long waiting periods before learning – more... new positions now. Employees aren't treated fairly. Good, proactive workers are held at a higher standard compared to equal employees. Work life is difficult working 12 hour 3rd shift. I had a lot of passion working here but it's hard to stay in that mind set with so much wrong in the plant. – less

Great job and enjoyable to work with team members.
Team Lead (Current Employee), Dallas, TXFebruary 22, 2014
A typical day at work would be, to trouble shoot problems on machinery throughout the day. I have a great relationship with my co-workers and it makes the day go by easier and fun. The hardest part of the job would be working during the hot summer days, there is no air conditioning in my area. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to earn – more... a bonus if you hit your percentage at the end of the day. – less
