Nestlé USA – Why Work For Us?


Nestlé is…

...the world's leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness company. Our mission of "Good Food, Good Life" is to provide consumers with the best tasting, most nutritious choices in a wide range of food and beverage categories and eating occasions, from morning to night.

For well over a century, our commitment to producing foods that uniquely fulfill people's needs has been the secret ingredient in everything we make. It's the right amount of heartiness in our STOUFFER'S® entrees, and it's what makes our NESTLÉ® Hot Cocoa Mix so satisfying on a cold winter day.

    I worked at Nestlé USA (More than a year)


    Great well known company with quality and name brand products. Willing to help employees with issues regarding job


    Long hours of work and if you are salary employee do not get any overtime pay or comp time. Was told in the beginning that i would be allowed to get some comp time for working late or on weekends, and often times needed to travel but supervisor did not count that as work time. Also after long day at a store working, still had to come home (or to a hotel) and work on the computer.

    Advice to Management

    Need to listen more to employees about the hours and time spent away from family. If all we are doing is working to work then what is the purpose if we cant spend any quality time with family
