"Think Again..."

Former Employee - Commercial Sales Representative in Chicago, IL
Former Employee - Commercial Sales Representative in Chicago, IL

I worked at Nestlé Waters North America full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Complete corporate experience including training and follow-up training, which is lacking in many companies today.

Cons

Archaic bi-yearly review process. Imagine this...., a peer review whereby your boss, your bosses boss, and other dept. heads, if avail.(?) come to view a quick presentation by yourself demonstrating your actions or lack thereof over the course of the last several months. In theory, a good way to keep everyone on their toes and "real". The reality, however, is something which goes beyond dignified and into the realm of a by-gone era with a military leaning hierarchy complete w/ poignant comments. Which in some circles, could be considered questionable conduct, morally and ethically. Witnessed people crying and being verbally assaulted in comparison to children's antics. Funny, never saw one HR representative attached to a compete review day.(?) Interesting???....Needless to say, one is "reviewed" either positively or negatively, and "others", not including your peers, are allowed to comment as well. However, please note, one is not allowed to review "others", nor comment on their performance. There is a smaller review at the end of the year which is a one on one with your Mgr., however, it's more or less based upon the two earlier reviews and a side note on a possible raise. Not a job for the faint of heart or a person wanting to be treated as such.

Advice to Management

Do what you say can be done.
