    Pros

    Salary and vacation time are decent.

    Cons

    Too many issues that do not get resolved. Poor training. Expectations are not the same for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Better training. Same expectations for all unless those who can not perform all functions are paid at a lower grade.

    Pros

    Work life balance, no nights or weekends, good benefits.

    Cons

    A lot, for this position. Not sure how else to say it, the job just does not make sense . There is zero job gratification and no sense of accomplishment with this position RSR. very very difficult to get promoted they will not pay for job relocation costs nor will they pay for transfers very small increases in pay that don't meet cost-of-living increases the bonus program is just that . You have no idea what you're going to bonus until you get paid if you do get bonus. many things you find out last minute , the job description I applied for was not the job I actually worked. please read all the reviews for this position before you except the pay rate is very average at best no commission. Mostly a driving job.

    Advice to Management

    You seriously need to reevaluate your retail sales representatives that go to grocery stores. Stop changing the job description every day.

    I worked at Nestlé Waters North America full-time

    Pros

    Get your CDL for free, they hire with a permit. Great start to a driving career, they are well known and after doing your time here you can choose your next employer that will pay more for less work.

    Cons

    Management condescension, wage theft. Salary should not equal slavery, they sell you a job that doesn't exist, you WILL work more than 9 hours a day and WILL have more than 60 stops, called a salesman but never a chance for commission, sounds like a delivery driver to me, and to the DOL as well. Forced to upsell with zero commision aka motivation except fear for your job and the ever elusive matrices, don't worry, you'll never meet them and even if you do it will take 10 years to hit the top of the scale, which is starting wage in other places. But the experience is invaluable, worth its weight in gold, keep that in mind while doing your time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the shilling in check, every other job site contradicts the "reviews" here, it's painfully obvious that there is shilling going on. Indeed it is.
    Keep a closer eye on how some coach and mentor, yelling and demeaning people isn't a motivator and may explain a lot of problems that exist.

    Pros

    This company believes in promoting from within and rewards hard work. They offer excellent benefits. Depending on the position they are very flexible to meet employees needs and special circumstances.

    Cons

    Some of their KPI's are unrealistic for all employees to meet depending on where they need to service & what size customer base they have.

    Love that nestle waters is striving to focus on improving processes and employee satisfaction at work. Within the past year the company has rolled out effective training materials and strengthened communication across all levels to align everyone with organizational goals etc. huge focus on continuous improvement and becoming an inclusive environment is great in my book. Benefits and pay are very fair.

    Cons

    You might have to relocate for new opportunities and that might not be an option for some

    Advice to Management

    Please consider offering more mentorship and professional development opportunities in all areas/divisions
