5 Tips to a Successful Vendor Appointment

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, in the off-price industry for retailers such as Ross, maintaining positive relationships with your vendors is the most important part of forming a concrete foundation for your business. Without these relationships, the vendor will never have you in mind when they suddenly have a cancelled shipment of higher-end merchandise […]

My Great American Road Trip, and First Day Jitters
My Great American Road Trip, and First Day Jitters

Five days and some 2,250 miles later, I’ve arrived in Los Angeles to begin the first of my nine weeks with Ross Stores, Inc. My drive was anything but boring: my brother and I left Columbus in search of some of America’s greatest landmarks, like the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, MO and Grand Canyon […]

I lived through my first California earthquake!
I lived through my first California earthquake!

Well, the time has come-I’m all packed up, my last day of my internship is tomorrow, and I just checked the weather for the first time this summer (Ohio is much more unpredictable than California).  AND Mother Nature was kind and didn’t want me to leave without experiencing an earthquake, so on my 2nd to last day- […]

NESTLE: Good Food, Good Life.
NESTLE: Good Food, Good Life.

  Taste Testing- My title couldn’t be more accurate.  Nestle is 150% providing me with a summer full of “Good Food and Good Life”.  About three weeks after I started working at Nestle this summer I finally went downstairs to the basement to participate in the daily taste testing of our potential new products. Since then, […]

Four day weeks: Very much so appreciated when you’re working full time!  We had a 4 day week last week because of the 4th of July and this week we have another one (sort of) because Nestle is holding an “Offsite Logistics Event” this Friday at Universal Studios.  I don’t know that much about the […]

Week Three.                 This week I have really dove down and achieved some good progress on my projects.  I’ve learned how to successfully sort several thousands of rows of data in excel, and then analyze and interpret the data in order to deliver a final presentation that will show all of my findings next Tuesday […]

True Life: Lexi Merritt went to Vegas.

Vegas.  Yes, as crazy as this sounds- It’s true.  My nice, laid back, relaxing weekend I was planning on having turned into a trip to Vegas with another Nestle Intern, Kelly Sipple!  We met one of my really good friends from Virginia in Vegas for a night!  Everyone who really knows me knows that this is […]

Week 1- Wow! Since I’ve arrived in LA on Sunday night, June 12th I have… Rented an amazing SUV (brand new Ford Escape) paid for by Nestle for the next three months…I’d say that’s a nice little beach car :) Moved into an amazing apartment complex on the same mountain as the Hollywood sign.  Every […]

I […]

Week 4: Monday July 27-Sunday August 2 From film sets to cultural attractions, Los Angeles offers a plethora of places to explore. Every week I walk by “New York City” before I enter the worlds of the Norse Mythology within which Thor resides. This week, I even discovered different cultures with the help of famous […]

Dimitar @ Nestle [Part 3]
Dimitar @ Nestle [Part 3]

One thing that I’ve noticed at Nestle, which has been very different from my previous work experiences, is the importance of employee-to-employee as well as employee-to-manager relationships outside of work. It seems like every week management or employees organize casual after-work events where large groups of people socialize and develop relationships. The first week we […]
