Great front line employees to lead
unit manager (Current Employee) –  Lanham, MDNovember 3, 2015
Management is not loyal to their employees. Extremely long hours. A typical work day is around 12 hours for all employees. The expectation is that you work 12 hours a day with no overtime. Front line employees are great and make the 12 hours of work manageable. Be prepared to not see your family.
Pros
The front line employees are great
Cons
Long work hours at every position

Driver RSR
Route Sales Representative/Driver Class B (Former Employee) –  Orange, CAOctober 20, 2015
If you want to work your whole life delivering water, hurting yourself every six months because they push you so hard on completing 60+ stops a day then this is the right job or you! Knew about 20+ guys who been working with this company doing the same job for over 30 years and no hope of moving up in position.
Pros
pay
Cons
they overwork you and don't care if you are killing yourself or not

Company don't care about your health
Retail Sales Driver (Former Employee) –  Long IslandOctober 7, 2015
Good pay if you work 8 hours. This company expect you to work more than 8 hours with no OT Paid. Very stressful, Managers dont care if you havent finish your job they still want you to complete it with out paying the extra hours. Is very diffiult to finish 70 stops a day. If you get hurt while working they dont care they still want you to work. Bad company no life.
Pros
No Lunch

No Break

A very great company to work for.
Mail Clerk/ Facilities Associate (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTOctober 1, 2015
A typical day at work would consist of hard work and enjoyable company. I learned how things work in a corporate type of environment. The management was very helpful and reasonable. The co-workers were very helpful and hardworking. The hardest part of the job was the labor work. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fun-filled activities that went on at work from time to time.
Pros
Free beverages
Cons

Great Company
Key Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Stamford CTSeptember 22, 2015
NWNA is a great company to work for with great pay, great work/life balance, and great products. There are typical areas that cause stress, but that is impossible to avoid in any company. Overall, I highly recommend considering NWNA.
Pros
Products, Pay, Worklife Balance
Cons
Sometimes Management does not listen to lower level associates

Transport driver
Transport Driver (Former Employee) –  Livermore, CASeptember 16, 2015
Looking back on my 7 years there and I feel it was a complete wast of time. Forklifts are make for inside use and they use them outside in all weather conditions driving thru potholes and your back absorbs all the impact. The company pledges safety, safety,safety but when you are doing the job it is all about getting the job done and management turns its back to what is really happening. I could go more about management but all I will say QUITTING THIS JOB WAS THE BEST THING I EVER DID.
Pros
free water
Cons
Working nights un unsafe condtions, bad equipment as trailors axels are cracking and may cause acidents

Long hours, but good pay
Quality Resource (Current Employee) –  Stanwood, MISeptember 1, 2015
Pay is up to market standards, but expect to not have a great work/life balance. Hourly workers do 12 hour days, 4-5 days per week. Full-time employees are doing a minimum 50 hour work week, with most weeks being around 55 hours (no overtime). Also, don't expect pay raises if you're hourly - they keep people at the same rate across the board so the people who have worked there 15 years make the same amount as those who started 3 months ago if they're doing the same job.

Most of the people are nice, but the culture has some flaws in it as well. There is a lot of people putting each other down in a joking manner, primarily due to the personalities at the top of management.

Overall, very different than the majority of Nestle workplaces. Nestle in most areas of the business do not have this kind of culture and is generally a wonderful company to work for.
Pros
good people, good pay
Cons
poor work/life balance, poor job security, sub-par culture

always busy
Water Technician (Former Employee) –  Red Boiling Springs, TNAugust 21, 2015
enjoyed learning something new everyday being able to jump in and help any operator in the plant to run or fix machinery to help them make production so they could get incentive pay. Took a whole line of new employees trained them all and we were the first group to make incentive on that line and we did it in less than two weeks because as a lead I never left the line was running up and down it all night had all members of the line working as a team to get the job done trained the all to run every piece of equipment on the line not just their part of the line such great teamwork
Pros
great employees
Cons

ZONE OPERATIONS MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Lanham, MDAugust 17, 2015
I held many rolls thus far at Nestle, and enjoyed each one. I am very hands on and have a passion for seeing my team succeed. The most frustrating part of my job is watching employees opt not to do the right thing at all times. That makes my role the most difficult. Overall, it is a great company to work for, but I am ready to explore other opportunities.
