    Pros

    It is a large company.

    Cons

    More worried about cost and cutting to bare minimum of employees which creates more workload for those left. Too many bs processes that are meaningless.

    I worked at Nestlé full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for a job that only requires High Diploma or equivalent. Almost all of the staff that is currently in charge i.e. managers, line leaders, line managers, human resources, new hire trainers, they all started out working on the lines making food products, so there is huge room for career growth at Nestlé.
          After working full-time with Nestlé you will get benefits health care plan, 401k package options, etc. The people are very nice and helpful, well, as helpful as they can be.
          The lunch room is huge and has excellent food options and automated tellers so you can always (24hrs. a day) get a meal or beverage of nearly anything you can imagine. Sometimes there are accidents on the food lines (i.e. incorrect ingredient or something) but the food is still very good they just can not market the food with an incorrect ingredient so they will allow employees to eat them for free for lunch.
          The company is very environmentally aware and friendly, they try to preserve water and take care of product waste as environmentally friendly as they can.
          Job Security is solid. Nestlé has been around literally for over 150 years they are an extremely solid job if you can make the job work for you.

    Cons

    The schedule is not a set schedule at first. You will have to get slotted or placed onto a schedule after several weeks of working the different food product lines and even then the schedule can change times on a daily basis. The changing schedule makes it very difficult to be attending school or doing much else with your time off during the regular work days. Perhaps you can do online courses but only after you get used to daily grind.
          The work is extremely physically demanding! The work may not seem very demanding from a description of what you need to do but be well assured it is very, very physically demanding work! Before even attempting to do this job I would recommend that you are commonly stretching and working out on a daily basis and are in good physical shape, even then it may not be enough.
          The type of labor you perform is a combination of many things but mainly standing for very long periods of time without being able to lean on anything and also at the same time performing monotonous repetitive actions for approximately ten hours straight every day from the time your shift starts, again which can be different each day.
          When you first start unless you are in very good shape you will be extremely sore for the first few weeks, even months for some people. This is very accurate information do not assume you have done hard work before and you can just handle this job with no problems, it will be very hard to get used to this type of labor and will probably still take weeks even for someone who is extremely physically fit.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a good idea to warn new hires that the work is very physically demanding and perhaps even tell them to get a bottle or two their favorite over the counter pain killers to prepare for the first few weeks. Even tell new hires that they will seriously be physically kicking their own butts for the first month or two and to be prepared for that kind of experience.
