Its Swiss company into CPG. Post covid lost of changes. They are outsourcing their IT jobs to offshore and to vendors driven model.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Its a good company but lots of changes that does not make sense when IT labor market is short. Always as this question, am I here for short term or a long term? Short term make sense since you have gained experience you can work somewhere for more money. Benefits are average.

Very nice people to work with who are supportive and have many different jobs you can do! I worked as a sanitizer and it was a very laid-back job with many opportunities for rest and break time.

Pros

free icecream and higher pay than minimum wage

Cons

Good work-life balance, bad compensation, bad culture

Huge turnover for a reason. The company will really mess around with you with shift schedules and barely pays enough to scrape by, then they wonder why people keep leaving.Also if you are anything but a straight white middle-aged man you might have a tough time fitting in.But, the work-life balance is pretty good compared to other places.

Toxic Work Environment

The pay is good if you can get hired on full time. That being said making a higher Class wage consistently will be nearly impossible for years until you’re assigned in a position. They will put you in any job they need without any regard to physical limitations and can do this as they please as it’s in the companies contract. They blatantly ignore safety concerns and medical advice. You will be forced in 6 days a week every week and are expected to put this company before your own needs. If you value your sanity then I suggest working anywhere else but if you can stand being treated like human garbage all the time and don’t mind supervisors forgetting your name then this is the place for you.

Good pay, bad schedules

Nestle is a good place to work for pay. Benefits if full time. The bad thing is the scheduling. You could work days one week, then midnights or afternoons the next. You only find out Thursday or Friday your shifts for the next weekI love the supervisors. Dont love the union rules

Not bad

Good place to work. Hard to advance. Good people. Unionized. Fair breaks and for about half the year overtime is available. Didn't shut down once during the pandemic.

It's a nice place.

They hire a lot of new employees (usually seasonal) to make up for what the older ones don't work. They put me to work for 1 month as a night shift without telling me.

Pros

Free ice-cream

Cons

Poor growth opportunities

this review is for toronto branch

don't expect much if u get hired for a seasonal job. you will be working the knight shift which they don't tell you, you will be on call and if machine is down, they call you not to come. after 3 years if u are still there and get hired but you are not a machine operator, you will be a floater with basic benefits even you apply to be a machine operator but you don't get it as by seniority. so there are 3 groups of employees: machine operator, floater and seasonal. i met some women there with average intelligence

Great place to work at

If you want to work on your own, and not to worry about drama with employees this is a great job for you. Job is very relaxing. It’s not physical what so ever

Pros

Lots of OT

Cons

May only have Sunday’s off for a long time when new

Do not go

They are hypocritical and favor employee if you are a favorite the make up reasons to dismiss. Then they're going to continue to send empty pay slips for months on end with out a roe

Stressful

Very stressful as managers always on the floor looking for something wrong with you to get you in the bad books so you can do as they say or else you can find the door

Pretty decent workplace if you don't mind not having a straight shift

Most of the jobs you might do are pretty boring or tedious, like much factory work. But you will rotate stations usually every 20 or 30 minutes depending on what line or job you're doing. All shifts are 8 hours, with day shifts having a half hour unpaid lunch(8 and half total), where as afternoon and nights have a 20 minute paid lunch(8 hours total). all shifts have at least 2 twenty minute breaks as well.I haven't had any issues with my co-workers or my supervisors/lead hands. The HR people have all been friendly and pretty quick to deal with any issues in my experience as well.

Pros

Lots of overtime opportunities, anything after your shift is supposed to end is time and a half. Sundays are double time, training is very thorough, ice cream is usually available for free in the break room for employees

Cons

You don't know your schedule for the next week till Thursday at the earliest, and they only post schedules for the next week in advance, so it's hard to plan activities further out, you won't likely be able to work straight shifts except nights till you gain seniority, seasonal workers still have to pay union dues, but don't get as many benefits compared to full timers

Sorry to see company is closing

Closing June 2022 it is a wonderful place to work wish it would stay open longer. A lot of us have been there between 20 to 25 years it’s a great family that we belong to. We have become a great team of friends.

A pretty good place to work, overall.

Overall, my time at Nestlé was fine. There are plenty of different areas to work, and they offer free ice cream in the break room. If you work hard, make an attempt to get along with others, it’s just fine.

Pros

Free ice cream, 24-7 operating means lots of work available, The work is not difficult, it is a safe workplace, demand for the product only went up while I was there.

Cons

Dull, repetitive, work, I’ve seen older employees suffer repetitive movement injuries from a lot of bending and twisting, Not a con, just a “be aware” if you’re an older person looking for work.

Excellent company to work. Great people. Excellent opportunities to advance and move to new challenges.

Flexible work environment, supportive colleagues and management. Many opportunities to grow your skills and development across the organization. Environment is fast paced but can be slow to role out projects due to the many BU’s and complexity. Global teams role out solutions and sometimes work in silos. Teams are very embracing and overall it’s enjoying to work at such a big company.
