Having worked at this company during various stages of my career it is indeed the leaders and managers that makes all the difference currently there is a vacuum of highly skilled and competent managers there are so many young managers that don’t have relevant experience to navigate difficult situations lack of respect reflect and high levels of entitlement

Strong culture of respect and work ethic. Lots of opportunities to learn and improve yourself. Nestlé is a company that values its employees, stakeholders and consumers. Most enjoyable part of my job was having an opportunity positively impact the lives of consumers everyday (whether big or small).
Pros
Bonuses (13th Cheque and Performance Bonus). Employees are generally happy and well taken care of.
Cons
Its very easy to over-work yourself (fast-paced environment).

It was 5 days to month end and we were tracking behing on chocolate sales. I learned to take ownership by influence the customer to generate a big order for us to close the gap. As a result I received compliments from both management and my co- workers. The harderst part of the job is when we cannot keep up with the demand due to capacity constraints. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I get recorgnized for the job well done.
Pros
Monthly vouchers
Cons
Long hours

Busy day filled with unexpected reactions from people being audited yet very educational. Learnt to work under pressure and the job has taught me to be accountable and results focused. The managent is eager to teach and assist with developing ones career. The team spirit is what motivated me through the difficult stressful times. The hardest part is the long hours throughout the year thus it was very difficult to study further. The away audits and knowing that you are adding value to the business kept me going. Over all, a great environment to learn.
Pros
Away audits and away from base allowance
Cons
Long hours

Everyone would greet you when you walk in and ask how you are doing which makes you feel more welcome.When working, people would compliment you on your good work.I learned how to work on a tight schedule and always give it your best.I was under good management,they show a good amount of respect and are not unfair.My co-workers were friendly and we got along very quickly.The hardest part was learning a new line of work that took a bit of time to understand but i do learn fast which was an advantage.The most enjoyable part was that everyone was treated equally.

Work from 06:30 to 15:00. Dealing with sales reps from third party companies for the purchasing of packaging materials for ice cream.
Work in conjunction with Strategic Buyers and Production staff to maintain standards and availability of materials so as not to hinder production.

I learnt that dedication, attention to detail, a pleasant disposition and professionalism is key to getting the job done timeously and effectively.

Management is always there to assist, guide and give cultivated advice when necessary.

My co-workers and I work as a team, holding a meeting every morning to anticipate and counter any issues that may arise. We have acquired knowledge of each others work in order to assist one another when or if it is necessary.

The hardest part of the job is monitoring service delivery on import products.

the most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction of maintaining service delivery, and having a smooth factory run on the product without delays.
Pros
Flexi hours and overall work place satisfaction
Cons
Travelling distance to the factory site and 24hr availability for confirmation of deliveries.

I will usually plan my day starting by tasking down everything that I needed to attended to, as I complete the task I tick it, this helped me to complete my daily tasks. I loved Nestle Management, they have believed in me and I was given roles to do or handle on my own with no supervision, I was an EE Forum member and a Wellness Champion, there was a time I did not have a manager to report to and I ran the CHEP Account on my own, I was given a certificate for a job well done. I have learned a lot especially to work with different kinds of people, understand them personally and in a work environment and by so doing, I have built myself a family with these people. The hardest part was when I was faced with a difficult customer who does not want to return pallets but I found a way to make them aware that it is costing Nestle as they are sitting with these pallets, I usually send them a spreadsheet with all the cost and notify them that these will be billed under their account, the munite they realise how much are the pallets costing them, they will quickly make arrangements for us to collect the pallets. I was satisfied and relieved when I knock off knowing that I did my job proudly and solved all the problems for the day, if I did not have challenges, my day would be slow and I'll end up being bored. I also enjoyed being a Wellness Champ, this made me the person who I am and I knew every employee, all the events held I as part of the organisers.
Pros
Being an EE Member and Wellness Champion
Cons
Hated Strikes

As a student, I had the great opportunity of completing my Practical Training 410 course with this company. I learnt a lot and realized that Industrial Engineering is applicable in all the aspects of a business.
