Poor place to work long term
Pull pack operator (Former Employee) –  Mechanicsburg, PADecember 31, 2018
If you are young and vital that is what they look for. Do not get hurt or old. The pay is great. If you are not part of the boys club or want to treat people well as any type of boss this is not the place for you. There was so much back stabbing and only if you are under a legal minority are you protected but not if your part of the lgbt community . There is no far way to work there and not be broken in the end they will throw you away .
Pros
money
Cons
sell your soul

Mixing center management is horrible!
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Allentown, PADecember 20, 2018
I thought coming from a logistics background in a smaller distribution company was bad, was I ever wrong. I can not believe distribution at a global company like Nestle could be this bad. Policy and procedures at the mixing center is archaic at most. We are so inefficient and slow compared to other distribution centers and the process which Nestle works has not changed for the pass 20 years. It is obvious things have not changed bc the senior people who have worked there for the past 30 years have said so. The manufacturing plant could be a entirely different beast and could be good but as for the distribution center, this is horrible. The only reason why people don't quit is bc you are well compensated for all the aggravation which, I believe management knows this and uses it.
Pros
Well compensated
Cons
Very quiet, no music, no atmosphere to motivate, no cell phone policy

snitches and crybabies and power trip team leaders

Poor upper management, dirty dusty environment.
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Springfield, MONovember 2, 2018
Plant manager is disengaged in the day to day business and does not want to be bothered with it. Very hypocritical of his employees and talks terrible about all of them. Will always talk of improvements but will never make it happen. What I have learned about working there is people will turn on you and turn you in to HR constantly. The work place environment is horrible, very dirty and dusty. The fellow associates are hard to get along with and only look out for themselves. If they don't like you don't plan on being there long!!
They will make your life miserable and very hard on you.
Pros
none
Cons
present work force, dirty nasty environment

Great place to work
Engineering Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Mechanicsburg, PANovember 2, 2018
Nestle offered great benefits and pay. Training was always made available. The company picnics were always great fun as we always had a dunk tank for the managers. Pet food was available to employees at a greatly reduced rate and people could always bring their pets to work if needed.

Good place to work
Pet Care Specialist (Current Employee) –  Saint Joseph, MOOctober 23, 2018
Nestle Purina is a great place to work. The management is great. A typical day includes cleaning, feeding, and husbandry for cats and dogs. There is not a lot of supervision, so if you are not self motivated, you won't last.
Pros
discounts on all nestle purina products
Cons
hours are 4 tens either Sun-Thurs or Wed-Sat

Nice place to work
Order Revenue Management Associate (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOOctober 7, 2018
The work is not hard. It can be stressful at times due to the amount that can come in at once, but that is maybe 3-4 days a month. The training and development team are wonderful and make sure that you know how to do your job.

OPERATOR (Current Employee) –  Flagstaff, AZOctober 4, 2018
Great place to work, great benefits, 12 hour shifts just make it hard to have a work life balance. A lot of overtime available. Most employees are pretty personable and easy to get along with.
