Start time changes daily, management forces drivers into illegal and hazardous situations without support and told to do it and shut up or your fired. Trucks break down, no paid sick time, they force you to work injured, they spy on you and take pictures and video while they follow you in personal vehicles. cameras facing the drivers that never turn off. Uniforms are hot ugly and uncomfortable. 60+ stops a day as far as San Diego and Los Angeles. Delivering 400 bottles by hand and told to hurry up as fast as you can regardless of safety. Pay is 18 benefits are expensive. Management is changed daily and the new managers ride along with you with a checklist and no clue what drivers go through. Cons: Yes they are cons. Look else where"

Ice Cream Maker (Former Employee) says"They make it very difficult to get the job and when you get hired they treat you like a number. You don’t know what you’re going to be doing when you get there because the job title “ice cream maker” is used for everyone. I thought I would be learning how to make ice cream with real ingredients and Ect. Not making containers and running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Mandatory overtime was horrible!!!"
Filler/Packer (Former Employee) says"Upper management is the biggest problem at nestle and the some of the employees think their better than others. A lot of back stabbing and lying on other employees. Over paid lazy people. I was personally told I work to hard by other employees."
Team Leader (Current Employee) says"I hate this place we have to work Saturdays and we have to clean two or more jobs and someone is going to get hurt and you try talking to them and they brush everything off"
Other (Former Employee) says"This is a company full of backstabbing, deceitful, sneaky, selfish, greedy people who only care about upper management and the employees with the highest salaries. Their main concern is putting as much money in their own pockets as they possibly can, they don’t care whose life they ruin in the process. Very high turnover rate. Don’t expect a pay raise. They will cut your hours unexpectedly."
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) says"This company is a joke. Favoritism is rampant at that place. You must have to do everything in your power to make them like you. If you don’t, they’ll treat less than trash. Upper management looks at warehouse people like they were nothing. Management lacks professionalism. Decisions are made on the fly. They even have meetings before every shift to let workers know the daily decision changes. A lot of people have quit lately since the regional HR stepped in. Even the general manager, who worked there for 30+ years, retired with a short notice. If you have no other choice but work there, you must do everything to be friends with Management and the work flow coordinator in turn. Cons: Read"
EPSU Tech/Ingredient Handler (Former Employee) says"manage don't care about employs they just care about making their boss happy.

Set Up Crew Member (Former Employee) says"i would normally help production lines. typically moving 2000 pound pallets with just a hand pallet jack. i would be forced to do the most vigorous of work because im a bigger younger guy (which i understand) but we were not suppose to do the same things every day because it would be bad for your health."
Driver (Former Employee) says"Nestle bought Dreyers and it's been going to downhill every since. They closed plants and terminals. They have totally destroyed (dsd). (Direct Store Delivery) have the opportunity to interact with customers and get complains solved quickly. Cons: Poor Management"
Production floor (Current Employee) says"No one will tell you this is a great place to work. Pay is not even at cost of living for this area. The union here is a joke, might as well not even have one. Safety is placed second to running. Management puts themselves on pedestals since they are better then everyone else. This factory is going downhill fast, don't expect it to be a long term job to retire from. The pension is broke, will run out in a few years, save yourself the effort and look somewhere else. Cons: Breaks, pay not at cost of living, you are just a number."
