    Part-time merchandiser responsible for stocking ice cream shelves.

    Former Employee - Merchandiser
    Former Employee - Merchandiser

    I worked at Nestlé part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very independent job your manager will tell you stores to every week and you drive to the store in your own car and stock the ice cream shelves without having to speak to really anyone. You pretty much get to set your own hours as long as all the stores are stocked with ice cream.

    Cons

    Job is sometimes more difficult than it needs to be because the food stores put the Nestle product all the way in the back of the freezer, so a lot of extra work that hurts your production.

    Former Employee - Assistant Brand Manager (Intern)
    Former Employee - Assistant Brand Manager (Intern)

    I worked at Nestlé as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a brand marketing intern you experience a lot of great activities and get to do a variety of things outside the office.

    Cons

    The environment is obviously very competitive especially among brand managers. One manager was even on pregnancy leave and well past her due date but came to a meeting anyway because she felt threatened by a younger manager. That level of competitiveness is unnecessary and unproductive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more of a team environment so people work towards the same goal and not against each other. At the end of the day you will likely make more money if everyone wants to work for the good of the company and not to win a personal rivalry.
