Glad I left!

Production Operator (Former Employee)
Cabazon, CA

I worked at Nestlé Waters North America full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIt was decent pay for the area, benefits available to full time employees, and some good workers came through every now and then. The building was newer, so the facilities were clean.

ConsHigh turnover rate, disrespectful management, and forced overtime where drivers are working 12 hour shifts up to 6 days a week. Operators and drivers basically are numbers to this company and are consistently talked down to. It is hard to move up unless you are willing to kiss behinds or can fool management by acting like you're working only when they're around so they think you're on top of things. The more you step up and do things for them, the more they want from you and it is not appreciated. Training is non-existent. "Casual" employees, aka temp workers, are treated like half a person. It is very much a boys club at this location. High competition for nothing in return. Lots of lip service from management with no follow through. There is a reason why such a giant global company such as Nestle is never on any best places to work list, everything this company does is to look good on paper. It's all about the bottom line. Corporate to the fullest. Don't be fooled.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrain middle management some please. Respect your employees. Start trends in the workplace, don't just follow. Innovate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
