    I have been working at Nestlé Waters North America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the people's cool, discount program

    Cons

    Managers deem you as the lowest one on the totem pole, if your not salary you don't matter, "forklift operator are a dime a dozen" Job saying that it requires overtime but your overtime gets cut out towards the end of the year like around Christmas.

    Advice to Management

    Have more opportunities for everybody but drivers aren't the backbone of the company get over yourself

    I worked at Nestlé Waters North America full-time

    Pros

    Stamford CT(NINA headquarters) is a great city to work in and live.

    Cons

    Nestlé Waters North America is a terrible place to work. People are overworked and it's like the epicenter for politics. If the higher ups don't know you then you're a nobody. ReadyRefresh (direct delivery business) is a joke. If they don't like you for any reason they will find any reason to get rid of you.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, great cafeteria

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't care about employees or customers - only costs. They are getting rid of all the tenured, American people and replacing them with Europeans who don't care about the business.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone that cares (like Kim Jeffrey)

    Pros

    Having "Nestlé" on a resume
    Kitchen staff top notch professionals that respect and treat everyone as they like to be treated!
    Cleaning staff are top notch as well! other than that the rest is a crap shoot.

    Cons

    If you want to be treated like a 40 year old man child this jobs for you!
    if you want to be micro managed this is the job for you!
    HR has ZERO respect! Because they are HR they think they can and get in buisness that they shouldnt. HR is suppose to be impartial and evaluate the situation not take sides before all parties come to the table! Im truly discusted to have left a Wall Street job for this Dump!

    Advice to Management

    My only advice is to grow up and quit treating people like children! This has been the worst experience of my professional career! Its bad when I couldn't even trust HR! ITS A GOOD OLE BOY NETWORK! I Reported to Nestle Purina HR and they are totally useless along side managers in Copell TX

    Pros

    The pay is great and competitive

    Cons

    too many new people-huge turnaround of EE's- poor management- lots of favoritism- Poor training - bad safety record - company has gone from one of the top producing to the last

    Advice to Management

    Talk to people not down and show empathy. Monitor training -listen to senior EE's as they are the ones who have seen the success nestle had

    Pros

    They pay you pretty good for the title. Beware this is a way to get people to stay despite the work environment.

    Cons

    Management is unresponsive to your pleas for help or guidance. They do not train employees. There are many jobs out there; this one is not worth it.

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

    Pros

    Hourly pay is good but it still can't keep people from quitting in droves. Give you water to drink while working. Take 5-10 cases of water home monthly.

    Cons

    Work you 60-70 hours a week in summer. Very hot working conditions in the summer and freezing in the winter.very high turn over. Poor benefits. Supervisors flow through the place like crazy due to high pressure to hit targets. Machinery always broken down.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so cheap. Hire more people and maintenance mechanics as well. Provide better health insurance for your employees. Maybe think of putting air conditioning and heat in the buildings after all your making billions off free water.

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

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits are among the best in Denver.

    Cons

    No team work - management is very poor and changes every 18 months to 2 years - turn over is extremely high which leads to more down time - no real training - care more about meetings and paperwork than getting the plant to run - not enough people here to get the plant turned around.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire more skilled people for a short amount of time to get this place turned around and then weed out from there. Need some stability and that starts up front. Need to take better care of your employees and invest in them.
