    I have been working at Nestlé full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management does try to communicate with all employees consistently.

    Cons

    Management in constant meetings, no promotions for factor employees to a corporate level, always hire management from other sites or outside. Spend all my time covering my rump due to constant back-pedaling by management.

    Advice to Management

    Start fresh.

    Pros

    Super fun environment to work at. I love going to work everyday and be able to talk and interact with customers as well as bake cookies.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are issues with being understaffed and there are not enough people to run the kiosk, especially when there is a long line and you have to help customers as well as bake.

    Advice to Management

    Put more than one person on a shift at a time so that there are enough people to actually run the kiosk smoothly.
