Sales and Services Intern (Former Employee) – pakistan – 21 April 2018
Typical day included making and receiving customer calls, regarding water delivery orders, complaints and new account setup. conducting customer satisfaction surveys over the phone to evaluate customer satisfaction. the culture was friendly and the management was extremely helpful.
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – York – 27 February 2018
A typical day would usually be very busy which is how I prefer work to be, despatching orders to a tight deadline. Nestle logistics usually achieved 99.6 % service. I learned all different parts of a busy working warehouse. The management was usually very approachable. The workplace was a very rewarding place to work and in recent years a lot of people from outside the UK came to work with us making the workplace a lot more diverse and interesting. I never found anything about my job too hard as I consider myself to have a good work ethic and I felt I could adapt to any situation. The most enjoyable part of the job was the camaraderie of the workforce.
If you can handle infinite repetition day after day this job is for you. It doesn't really require thought, just labour. Typical days fluctuate between having virtually nothing to do because your job is automated, to sweating it out for 12 hours with only your breaks as respite. There is no middle ground.
3 on 3 off shifts can work for some, most staff are very friendly
Long hours, repetitive, no mental stimuli, often unassisted
Project Manager, Business Analyst, System Analyst (Former Employee) – York, North Yorkshire – 2 January 2018
I started working for Rowntree, who were then taken over by Nestlé. The company culture continued for most of my employment, but has now largely been swept away as most of the jobs in York have been dispensed with.
Factory Worker (Former Employee) – Dalston – 31 December 2017
As a former worker doing the job was manageable.But all the targets(production and health and safety)are too much.Also the skills expected(adaptability) on different jobs ain't easy and there's a lot of pressure and responsibility put on your head.Management have evolved the place too much for me and you have be realistic and perhaps try something else.
Quality Control (Former Employee) – Halifax, West Yorkshire – 24 November 2017
I worked there for five years.. I can say this was the best job I ever had. Even though I have a financial degree it still didn't attract me to leave the place as the management, staff and job was really good. No complaints :)
Project Management Coordinator (Current Employee) – York – 12 October 2017
In my role a typical day would be sense checking projects status in preparation for upcoming stage gates, running/analysing reports based on project time/cost and project "health" in terms of mandatory data and deliverables. I would be training and coaching project managers through the processes and systems surrounding portfolio and project management within Nestle. I may also be called upon to provide coaching/training on the structured problem solving tools used at Nestle. I have learned that no one wants to do a bad job but unless smart mistake proof solutions are provided to employees, things can still go wrong. I have been working over the last year to provide as much visibility to our portfolio as possible and to make working through the processes and reviewing things mistake proof. Over the last 5/6 years the management have been through a big culture shift from a more traditional management approach to now being more about coaching and asking open questions to employees for the best results. The hardest part of the job is getting things finished. As I work for a centre that is providing direction for 3 other sites (all in different countries) it sometimes takes time to get all the pieces of the jigsaw together. The most enjoyable part of the job is solving a problem and seeing the teams attitude towards certain processes change.
Flexible working hours, good pension, free coffee and fresh fruit, real care for the employees
scope changes, long lead times for decision making as there are so many stakeholders in Nestle
