Competitive Pay and Great Training Ground

Really good place to learn the retail environment and commercial perspective. I found that the senior characters in the company shared knowledge freely.

Highly Productive and Quality Oriented.

Strick Shift Planning Production according to schedule focusing on Quality and setting up teams to ensure job culture and management is aligned to produce on time and in full. I have learned to manage high output with limited resources. The hardest part was demand versus quality.

Pros

Nothing free except training and empowerment to do great job.

Cons

Overtime management.

Very productive place of work

Good leaders provide all what is necessary for their teams to succeed. They start at the front and point to the vision and provide direction. Then they move to the middle to make sure everyone has the wherewithal they need for the journey and it’s challenges. Then, lastly they move to the back and make sure that no one gets left behind. This is the essence of leadership. #leadership #success #leaders #leadershipdevelopment#teamwork #coaching

Pros

healthy food

Cons

Normal hours

The work environment is perfect for ,it's all about team work and we're helping each other grow everyday.

One thing I really like about Nestlé is the fact that they are serious about safety of their workers ,that puts me at ease every time I go to work knowing that nothing will happen to me. I have learned a lot since joining the Nestlé team and I'm still willing to learn more.
