    I worked at Nestlé Waters North America as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely good working conditions, very nice place, the food is like a good restaurant with a big menu, all beverages are free during all day. If you perform accordingly they allow working for home some days a week and the check in and out is very relaxed

    Cons

    Good compensation, I as a contractor made $90/hour and i was hired through another company that charges Nestle almost twice that amount

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

    Pros

    Great pay,and great benifits.And weekends off.

    Cons

    Really long hours.You're forced to sell extra products and if you don't you'll get fired.Way more stress than the job is worth.They give random safety observations (t hey follow you around all day and spy on you and watch how you work).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the drivers do their job and stop stressing them out.They'll do a lot better if you did.And listen to them when they try and tell you how to help make their routes easier and more efficient.

    They say they are there to support you. Not sure what direction the company is going

    I worked at Nestlé Waters North America

    Pros

    Good salary, good benefits. Employees help one another. A bit of a "family" atmosphere if you will, with an emphasis put on safety.

    Cons

    The main problem (for me anyway) was the 6PM to 6AM shift. I gave it a real effort (after all, this was a great opportunity) but I was absolutely stupid by 3 o'clock in the morning. As I was in Logistics and driving a forklift in a very fast paced atmosphere, it made for some very unsafe conditions (for me as well as my fellow employees).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management seemed to be on the ball. however, if you would like a more diverse and capable workforce ,( while not pushing individuals to their absolute limits) consider different scheduling scenarios.

    Pros

    Benefits are comparable. Semi-casual dress code.

    Cons

    Inefficient management, favoritism, company doesn't appreciate employee's hard work. The beverage side is the stepchild of the whole Nestle empire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees at every level with respect and appreciation.

    Pros

    Periodically they give out free water

    Cons

    They hire you as a temp - throw you on the 6pm to 6am shift, give you minimal or no information on company rules,regulations, what is expected of you,etc. Then they just wait for you to quit or they fire you for not following rules they never told you about!! They hire during much of the year from 10-14 people a week because so many leave the place!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become human instead of whatever you presently are.
