Posts Tagged ‘Supply Chain’
Greetings from Marysville!

I have now spent nearly 6 weeks interning at the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company’s (collectively known as “Scotts”) corporate headquarters located here in Marysville, Ohio. Its’ location is about a 30 minute drive from Ohio State, but I was fortunate to be able to rent an apartment only 10 minutes away from Scotts. I still have over 4 months left, as […]

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 […]

After the Dust Clears

It has been almost three weeks since my boss resigned, and the dust is finally starting to settle. With no immediate plans to hire a new category manager, it looks like the new status quo is starting to solidify. Although reporting to two different people, one of which is on another continent, can be difficult […]

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’d Like 2 Pounds of the Hard Salami
I'd Like 2 Pounds of the Hard Salami

For most people, an internship is a 10-week ride through an exciting and intense program that unfortunately must come to an end. I have been lucky enough to be interning for over a year with the same company. My name is Wil Davis, and I am a second-year in Finance, International Business, Aviation, and Economics, […]

First week: Check!
First week: Check!

I have had a good week. A great week, in fact. The week went fast after two days of training and many handshakes. The preparation for the first week was an important key. I prepared accordingly, typical questions that passed my mind were: What will I wear? What questions will I ask? Who am I […]

Hi from a newby =)

Admit it, your heart races, your blood boils or both when you hear an offer for an internship in a well-known company instead of a full time job. That was my case. Hello, my name is Eva Gabriela Zamudio, born and raised in Peru and I am really thrilled to have the opportunity to blog […]

This is a picture of from my vacation to Portugal last year.  Perhaps you have seen me around Fisher!   This past week was pretty interesting. I’m starting to get a better understanding for how everything in Group Traffic and Distribution pieces together. I still feel like when I come to work every morning at […]

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 […]

Hola everybody! My name is Catalina Lizarralde and I am a international student from Ecuador that has been living in the US for 19 months. I must start by saying that if something in my grammar sounds a little wrong, it probably is… but please bear with me… just imagine I am talking with an […]
