Approves of CEO

I have been working at Nestlé Waters North America full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Strong brands and great growth outlook with focus on health and wellness, strong values-based culture that promotes authentic leadership and transparency, new CEO is bringing a renewed focus on innovation and a high-performance culture.

Cons

NWNA is a lean organization that has a strong track record for success, but gets alot done with a little. Training and development opportunities are largely experiential, with limited formal training and education opportunities.

Advice to Management

Need to place a greater focus and investment in training and development. Employees are empowered to pursue learning opportunities, but leaders need to understand that more robust training programs and tools are needed to achieve long term growth.

    I worked at Nestlé Waters North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, No weekends, No Micromanagement

    Cons

    Base salary is really $24,000 ($1,000 MORE THAN THE POVERTY LIMIT!) Recruiter and HR and Hiring Managers will include your car allowance $500.00 per week in your base salary. If you exclude the car allowance and Don't hit the quota (47 sales during peak) you only receive 80% of base salary = $24,000 (excluding car allowance) Extremely difficult to consistently hit quota 47 new accounts every month. You do not have a list of active customers so you visit 10-15 accounts every day that already have service. This is a great Entry Level Position if your just starting off but if you are a seasoned sales professional don't think twice RUN FOR THE HILLS!

    Advice to Management

    Turnover and Revolving Door will continue until you start paying the sales reps commission for everything they sell! To much emphasis on growing the branch and generating revenue for the branch instead of the employee. The commission structure is a complete joke and needs to be reconstructed to benefit the employee. Goals are totally inflated and unattainable!!!
