    I worked at Nestlé USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    good benefits, 3 to 4 weeks vacation a year, manage your own route for the most part

    Cons

    no life outside of work, too tired after the long hours and physical work to do anything else, worked weekends and most holidays, pay decreased every year even though the route grew in size, not enough time in the day to meet expectations of management, reroutes and compensation changes every year and not for the better, trucks are always breaking down

    I worked at Nestlé USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The facility is pretty new, employees get free water to drink always a cooler stocked, and friendly people for the most part.

    Cons

    Long hours seem to be the norm, since communication is somewhat inconsistent. Layoffs during the winter months if no one is buying the product.

    I worked at Nestlé USA

    Pros

    They pay well, with a very good benefit package. Lower than average employee contributions for a very good medical plan, and very good tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Very long hours and physically demanding job. Poor communication from the management team. Workforce reductions in 3 out of the last 4 years. Equipment is poorly maintained and outdated.

    I have been working at Nestlé USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits. Employee store. No need to worry about layoff at warehouse level. Productivity bonus system.

    Cons

    Long hours, lost of mandatory overtime including work on scheduled day(s) off. Little to no communication from upper management. Short notice on hours needed to work. Work-life balance is horrible. The company says they are a family company but they expect themselves to come first at all times. Boys club. Not what you do but who your friends with will get you ahead. Dayshift personnel run the place. Upper management won't listen to anybody on off shifts. Bring in work that's isn't NUSA (nestle waters) that causes an extreme amount of overtime causing employees to fall behind on their normal NUSA work. When there are shift "parties" upper management usually has zero contact with anybody. Will serve food and leave soon after. Company needs to change up the "old guard" system. Company not truthful to new hires. Bring them onboard by telling them we work minivans overtime and no extra days. No advancement.
