I worked at Nestlé full-time (More than 5 years)
Pay is competitive if you work shifts
If you work shifts you'll feel like your never at work
Plenty of opportunities for progression
The opportunities can create an atmosphere as people look for a way to progress that's not always 'ethical'
Long hours can be hard for people short of physical fitness on shifts.
Pay is uncompetitive if you don't work shifts
Advice to Management
More people managers required who know to engage people fully.
Communication needs to improve.
Too much pressure on front line managers, BUT some of the front line managers don't have the correct capabilities either.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé.
Standard forms to start with- took quite a lot of time. Then there was an invitation to competency based questions and then numerical, which didn't take very long at all. I waited over a week to hear back after the results.
