I wonder how the reno team took the news. That depot was a hot mess. They didn't like the little birds on the nestle symbol and demanded it be changed. They let some dude go on stage and talk about how his truck fish tailed in the bad weather they... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Nestle
Incompetent and lazy reps. DDs who pad hours. Uninvolved DSLs
I understand most of us need a paycheck and will need a job very soon after we are laid off. If you are getting another DSD role, I believe you’ll need an exit strategy in the near future. DSD is dying, online shopping and delivery is growing. Even... — read more
So tired of living under this cloud. At the moment looks like I’ll be 64 when my 60-day notice is official. I was in perfect health and could run a route better than most people half my age. Been doing it over 40+ years. Nestle and DG have s—ed... — read more
So as I have come to understand over the past few years cuts during the summer are to be expected, but as of late I have found that ALL of my orders have either been sliced in half, mispriced, or fee cases here and there weren't even shipped to my... — read more
I was told by my friend in hr that 60 day notice will be given 8/16/2019 for the early outs. Good luck tomorrow nestle family
Does anyone know if you are allowed to collect unemployment while receiving severance?
With the new pay structure starting on July 15, I was told originally that our first paycheck following that pay period (Aug 2nd) would be reflected on the next check (the 16th) and that the necessary adjustments would be made to round you up if you... — read more
Half of August, September, October, some of November...Lord give me strength to hang on. Anticipating the horizon of life's next chapter feels like looking through the wrong end of binoculars: feels further away than it is, but closer to the end... — read more
My dsl called me today to meet him in the office. It was for my 60 day notice. I had to sign some paper work. I guess the count down begins.
Meeting in Fort Wayne tomorrow mandatory for everyone. They are bringing 2 people from Indy to cover production put always so it won’t be a quick meeting. National HR manager coming along side National Supply Chain Manager this time. So we expected... — read more
I wish everyone good luck in their future endeavors. Excluding those people retiring, I am sure most of us will be working along side each other or competing in the market. At to those retiring, God Bless & enjoy, you've worked hard enough. I know... — read more
I've had a few interviews with other companies over the past month or so. It seems the average pay here in the Alabama/Louisiana area is $9,000-$10,000 less than what Nestle has been paying. That's a major drop for me. I'll be staying to the end to... — read more
It’s unfortunate to be on this side of the fence, but I suppose companies are moving away from the DSD model. Going to another company in a DSD role doesn’t make a lot of sense to me right now. Nevertheless, Nestle has been good to me. Helped get 2... — read more
By Monday we will be down 2 drivers. Both employees did what's best for there familys which I would be doing the same thing once I'm offered another job. I don't get all the comments about people saying why would people leave. The bonus is only about... — read more
How can this take affect in mid August if it seems like everything is running slow in New England/Mass area
No wonder they are laying off ALL. Now they put all that money in those boxes. Who's the clown who designed those? Yeah sure the stock clerks are going to keep in boxes...NOT
Has anyone received there 60 days? And if so what state are you in?
This place is a soul siphon, and I'll be happy to start a new chapter and leave this one behind. I often wonder if I would be better off just finding other work to track a steady flow of income with, rather than wait around like a jaded cop for his... — read more
Just wondering if anyone signed up for the emergency team. I chose the opt out but I believe it's going to start with longest tenure first. I personally don't see a reason to help out a company that decided to announce we are all done without a game... — read more
My district has the right amount of help still. We are doing well. I just want to hear how everyone is doing. Our team is great and we all still get alone. Yes the big lay-off s—s but we still have a very positive team.
Right now it's a us vs them mentality. Everyone at my depot is not getting along. Alot of finger pointing and blaming going on. There has been at least 1 call in a day and we are short handed due to people being on leave for there kids being born. We... — read more
We haven't heard anything yet in mass /new england has anyone in this area??
That's pizza and ice cream at once. The ship is almost sunk!!
The early opt outs, who qualify, will get 60 day notice next week.(30%). The vast majority of people who bid for reroute will get 60 days 2 weeks later (50%). The rapid response and routes that couldn’t be deleted, 2 weeks after.(19%)
We were told today that Nov. 3rd is the target date for most employees to be done. Gets us paid through the holidays and a fresh start to the new year I suppose. Frankly, I think this is lousy timing. Thanksgiving and Christmas will be ruined for... — read more
Sure hope I will get a raise soon lol.
Was just informed that in our area we are going to lose all our independent accounts on August 15th. Also we will start seeing products being cut from warehouse to speed up the process. This week we already have been seeing a decrease in pizza items... — read more
I thought starting today was supposed to be the 100 percent commission payout because this is the paycheck starting from 7/15.
Just want to see how store look after we drop accounts.
Our asl has pretty much been straight foward with us since the beginning. He knows that we have to make the best decision for our families moving foward. He currently is on vaction and has encouraged us to use all our pto and sick hours. He also has... — read more
Giant eagle is August 15th Olean Wholesale September 22nd (Nestle will be distributed by Perry's and Huff for olean). I have letters from both.
60 day notices should start rolling out in the next couple of weeks. Our next Bi-Weekly Communication will provide the last of important communication. This is truly be a relaxing Holiday Season.
Did anyone option for the rapid response team throughout the country?
To the sales person who has to say who they are every time they long on the conference call like we don't know your voice. Good luck in the real world buddy where kissing butt doesn't always work. Being politically correct is what he calls it. It's... — read more
Seriously pass out all old shirts to the homeless....
We will be relocating to the Raleigh area post transition to be closer to family. Could anyone comment on the job market in the triangle area?
Has anyone in Florida heard anything about Walmart? Looks like we'll pretty much be done with Publix and Winn Dixie by mid to late September. Haven't heard a peep about Walmart.
