Great Benefits, Poor Training, Unhelpful HR, Micromanaging Managers
I accepted this position due to the “bells and whistles” remote work 4/5 days, paid parental leave, stocked cafeteria, benefits, holidays off, PTO. All seemed worth leaving the demanding job that I was currently in to move to Nestle despite the pay being no higher.
It starts fine, minus the first week of training that they had virtual the first day, second day they also sent out a virtual meeting link but in an attachment that couldn’t be seen on cellphone email apps it said that the second day was in person. Everyone who used their cellphone to read their email was at home sitting on a teams meeting that never began, new hires in this situation began contacting HR, who then emailed a correction and instructed everyone to get to the office ASAP.
There are 4 weeks of training- this sounded great, many jobs just drop you into the fire unprepared! Unfortunately, the training was mainly 4 drawn out weeks of learning how SAP operates and not much more related to any other job functions. Trainers often made us play “name that tune” or Pictionary to pass time because they can’t let us leave early. When they finally assign you to customers they do a knowledge transfer - which is about 2 days of on the job training with the person who’s accounts you are taking over- this is the useful training that should have been 2 of the 4 weeks.
Once we had fully taken over our accounts it became clear that the 4 weeks of training did not teach anyone the job functions and important process
While I have really liked my time at Nestle, I can't help but feel the company refuses to hire the proper personnel and only simply cares about production numbers and making money. Coronavirus has caused massive shortage of employee's, and instead of cutting back production a little bit, Nestle actually ramped it up. I have never been as stressed anywhere as I am here. Someone in the plant got Coronavirus and multiple people quarantined? They actually told third shift to come in anyway, then over the weekend they'll clean. No biggie right? Who cares if another person gets it right? Guess what employee's? We're throwing tons of overtime at you because Grandma is staying home and backing cookies right now! That is actually what they told us, and it is extremely offensive.
Without the proper personnel we need, forced overtime is a massive issue here. Being short people causes mandations, and mandations happen sometimes every single day in certain departments. They will not hire people to fill those positions. Sometimes they hire people to fill them, just to have the most important department take them. I can't help but feel I won't get a much better job for the pay, but the extremely poor work life balance at this place will drive many away, and it already has. New people are often a revolving door, because of the seniority rule and poor work life balance. You're new to the place? You will be mandated almost every single day just simply because you are new. I have been here
No one cares about work life balance, even though it is suppose to be one of their own pillars. Management is horrible. If you get injured they will try at every chance to get rid of you even if it is their fault you were injured. Hours are horrendous, they only clean when upper management visits. I would say it has been the worst place I have worked for. If it wasn't for some "Good people" and livable income I would have left on my own a long time ago.
The process of advancing in position is horrible. I was supposed to get a promotion but was held back for almost an ENTIRE YEAR. I finally got my training, and was a Lead operator but didn't get paid because my training regiment was backwards, and I was placed in a position that ultimately led me to be overused with the same pay as those under me.
I Suffered a lower back injury (Bulging disk) at work lifting a barrel full of wet Ice cream along with a Co-worker. They tried to get me to write down on paper that it was my fault and that it wasn't a case of me getting injured at the job, but rather, the outside of it. Clearly trying to get rid of me for getting the injury at all, I went and got a lawyer and filed a Workers Compensation Case. At every turn they would deny my access to getting treatment, deny getting my shots and physical therapy... It was horrible. I was forced to go to court for every bit of treatment. Clearly they don't care about your health either. I had an HR (Supposedly) Contact in which I shared all of
Pay and Benifits are the only positive aspect of working for Nestle, Mount Sterling, KY
The pay rates and the benefit package are the only positives for working at Nestle, Mount Sterling, KY.
The 12 hour shifts do not allow for a work life balance. If you work second shift your first day off is spent trying to get back on a sleep schedule with the rest of your family, and you don't always have the same days off as the rest of your family.
The work varies and is not strenuous, but the environment for most of the facility is cold and with 12 hour shift it and seem downright frigid.
Management shows favoritism to a select few and does not have a good understanding of the how their equipment is ran and is unable to show guidance to their operators and then blames them when their machines are not running "fast enough".
The training department does not do training they are only glorified secretaries that file the training sign off sheets. Due to the high turnover rate the you have people who have very little experience training new hires, or you have Adecco employees who may have been working in the facility for a while training permanent new hires who are starting out making more money than then doing the training.
Over all the moral and job satisfaction are low as is evidenced by the high turnover rate. Every Friday a new group of new hires or Adecco employees are brought in and by the next week very few remain.
To put the icing on the cake, as of the second quarter of this year the on site cafeteria has closed requiring you to pack your own l

Average Employer with below average and inconsistent pay, poor leadership and no direction
Over 20 years I have seen Nestle go from a wonderful place to work to what it is today. It lacks a common vision despite preaching their OMP. Managers are isolated from the supervisory staff. The days are filled with unproductive meetings. People are afraid to speak up if it is not in line with the Nestle way.
Wages for professional employees are inconsistent. Communication from the "leadership team" is almost none. My co worker who has been in the job less time than I makes 15K more because they earned higher wages at their last job and kiss the a** of the manager. Social events, plays the politics, lunch, so on but does not do much work. Very discriminatory pay practices if you are not in the union. Review time is not good, quick to point out flaws to avoid a pay raise ( whoo whoo 2% this year ) and never point out or reward the good. Manager has no idea what I do or even what the plant produces. Churn and burn managers or get kids in their training program who don't have a clue just puppets for managers.
Nestle should focus on making candy and setting pay brackets and steps to be fair to people !
I only stay because my family needs the good insurance. Putting Nestle on your resume hurts you when looking for a job. You are asked why you want to leave such a respected organization. Obviously they have never worked for Nestle.

Contropoor organization, lack of leadership, wages
I have worked at only ONE Nestle factory which is all I have for experience in Nestle. So remember this may vary else-ware. Most people quit this job because of all the forced overtime. Of course that is during the busy season where as during the slow season there are times when people collect unemployment from lack of hours. Not everyone is great to work with but there are a wide variety of jobs from factory to office to supervisor work. The thing here is you have to be open to improvement. A lot of the stress comes from the days where we had a lot of downtime or waste and it feels like they never let up because they don't, there is always room for making the line run better. The factory claims to be people focused and in terms of safety they do care ALOT (possibly because the more injuries, the more they pay). Some meetings are "well how can we make it better for people here" and others are, "well we can always find someone else". It got to a point temp agencies were having issues staffing our factory because of no one wanting to work here. But the benefits are good although a bit pricey thanks to the new healthcare act, they provide adequate paid time off which increases with the longer you work here along with Sick pay and Family Medical Leave. They used to provide a pension but no longer for new people. They pay starting at $15 per hour (as of 2017) and go up from there. There are salaried and hourly positions. I personally don't mind working here as they pay well and of

ControToo much overtime, stressful (depending on job), long hours, not really people focused for genuine reasons
To be brief:
There are more than a few concerns, that are being forged at Nestle USA, Freedom location. For frivolous and even contrived reasons; people are walking on pins and needles, in constant fear, of losing their jobs. It would appear to be an effort to refuse sharing its actual culture until, the door closes. Openness and feedback is muzzled, fundamental warehouse practices are foreign, training is abysmal, improvement is relative, differing levels of management, contradicting each other. Top Management directly identifying employees as "children". Supervisors and Managers repeatedly using fowl language, proposing to be professional. (not excluding review time) Frequently observing one persons actions, held to a different standard, when applied to someone else.
People are closed-mouthed and robotic. A new employees friendly greeting, is often met with a frown and no response. You will learn, asking for vital information, leads to being labeled. No shortage of two-face behavior, for the sake of evading the spotlight. When people run out of ammunition, they grab a piece of paper and begin to create. Otherwise, normal conversation translates to a full-on conspiracy and reality ceases to exist. Hurling accusations, they will never lack.
Management's suggested use of cameras, paraphrasing; to keep people in line (Ref. second week of orientation), is evidently

CPG giant with quality products that lacks the innovation needed to keep up with its short and long term goals.
Working and average of 60-70 hours a week, my day was typically 50% in meetings, 10% on the phone, 20% email, and 15% administration, and 5% creative time. The company places a huge emphasis on the importance of strong brands and innovation, but is severely challenged in both these areas due to its weakening brands, current employee incentive structures, career path opportunities, and siloed resources across all levels of the organization (Marketing, Sales, Supply chain, etc.).
There currently is a big effort underway to change the "culture" of the company, which is resulting fewer leaders, and more "territory protectors" that are protecting the "working years" needed for very lucrative retirement packages. It is a very demanding work environment, with more team players than selfish employees. Morale is medium low, trending down as sales and profit targets have consistently been missed in the past few years.
The hardest part of the job was seeing the lack of business urgency and accountability (good and bad) on the biggest issues I believe plague the company, more specifically in the areas of business strategy, innovation (i.e. thought leadership, consumer understanding), career planning, and incentive structures.
The people were the most enjoyable part of the job. As mentioned above, there are many great, hard working and talented people that work for the company. The company needs to promote those who can unlock the maximum potential of one of its greatest

I loved the work that I did because it was challenging. The Warehouse Manager was hired from outside. He was only interested in the employees that partied with him outside of work. I was not one of them. I worked for the company for a very long time but was very disrespected by management. I was a hard worker and I had a strong attention to detail which was frowned upon by fellow employees. Especially by one fellow employee who "charmed" the manager. I could see I was on my way out and felt I had no where to turn.
A typical day at work was very negative attitudes from unhappy associates. They didn't understand that they were paid very well and had great benefits and great work hours.If they felt threatened by someone who worked and was interested in making progress they would tear them down to the new manager and he only cared about their opinions. The manager also shared personal information about other employees with his "buddies".
The hardest part of the job was dealing with management and negative fellow employees who were insecure individuals. They wouldn't last a day at another company.
Nestle was and is a very good company and I learned so much in the years I worked there about work ethic and feeling good about hard work and how it makes you feel. Unfortunately over the years it declined and poor management is ruining the business. I was very proud to say I worked for Nestle. I had to cry uncle after so many years and I miss working.

ProGreat benefits and good pay.
ControManagement that doesn't care about all employees.
Pay is decent, insurance is good, 401k is good and they match well... job is truly an easy job..
The shifts totally suck, 2-3-4 AM start times completely suck, working weekends sucks, and while you do get off early in the day, you're so tired that you either have to try to nap after work to have a family life or you go to bed super early which I couldn't stand to do.
Salesmen and merchandisers are a bunch of whiny prima donnas that think you're supposed to start at 2am so they can start at a more normal 5-6 am and live a partially normal life.. Basically everyone pretty much only cares about themselves and what benefits them so you as a driver have to put our foot down early and remind them that you don't work for them and establish your own start time.
Other than that, I put in about a year and a half, eventually quit because of the driving distance from my house. Ohhhh and equipment is total garbage. Units break down daily and they don't plan to replace units for the next 18 months. The equipment is by far the worst part about the job. When you start breaking down on the daily you'll know what I'm talking about.
Management was truly decent at my location. They were the best group I've worked with in my entire adult life. I cannot begin to express how decent my boss was to me and even his boss and the other office staff. That was one of the hardest parts about deciding to leave.
Overall if you live close it's an okay deal if you can adjust your
