Fast pace multitask environment with great incentive programs
Logistics Manager (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 February 2019
A fast paced environment that demands great multitask skills. Have been given opportunities to grow and advance in many of my past roles at Nestle Purina. The management team works to support each department to meet or exceed our KPIs. We work as a team. The culture is a team environment from our hourly staff to our executive leadership team. The hardest part of my job is finding work life balance. Nestle works on a lean strategy where we identify non value add responsibilities and eliminate them and consolidate responsibilities to reduce resources. This has pros and cons which can lead to justifying head count increase. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with our Leadership Pillar which works on our skills as a good leader through coaching, results focused and team building. I've spent most of my working career at Nestle Purina and I'm impressed at how much we have grown over the years.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS DIVISION OF Nestle Canada. They are outsourcing all the departments to third party stakeholders, as they cannot keep up with the rising costs of products. And they are laying off alot of people so STAY AWAY FROM THIS DIVISION OF NESTLE CANADA.
No Job security, and everything else about safety.
Working at Nestle Toll House was really great. I appreciate all of the people I met and relationships that I formed through my experience there. The only downsize was the minimum wage pay, and the lack of opportunities for upward mobility. The environment and culture, however, was wonderful.

At first i was excited to come to work, the shifts are steady for new comers and their was the opportunity to progress in the company. However, once minimum wage increased, the pay was decreased and no longer substantially better than the average retail job, which is much easier on the body I might add. There is no job security, twice a year you are laid off and wait for a letter to return to work. I have to constantly remind the schedulers of my availability and they still mess it up each week. And schedules are only given out a week in advance, the final copy going up Friday afternoon for the following week. When you are hired you are hired as a seasonal employee and gain no senority through years of experience. On the chance you're randomly selected to be a full time employee you have the chance to earn more money and reap the benefits, however until then you are nothing. They are now hiring full timers off the street with no experience in production or factory work before giving loyal seasonal the chance to apply. Furthermore they are "slow" and schedule full time employees who have worked for the company less than a month over seasonals who have proven their worth to the company and have skills to make them true assets. After speaking to a union rep I was told that as a seasonal I am stuck in this situation and will continue to lose weeks of work to new employees because they were given a better opportunity than I or many other dedicated seasonal production employees were. Most of the co-workers are lovely though. I recommend the night shift.
Nestle store discounts, nice coworkers, MOST lead hands are friendly
No job security, twisted seniority system, bad management, bad HR staff

Good Food. Good Life.
Nestle provides employees with many different opportunities to learn and grow within the company. Just like any other big corporations, they have daily, weekly & monthly regular operational reviews to maximize efficiency and productivity.

Nestlé used to be a great place to work, products are great. Over time the work environment has changed for the worse. Poor management, and does not put employees first. Promotes work /life balance, but they don't follow through.
