    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé Waters North America in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    phone interview 3 days later
    call back next day for testing at MI Works scheduled

    Call 5 days later for a face to face/group interview at Plant with about 14 others that applied
    Explanation of group and face to face interviews. Group interview first. all applicants work together to come to an agreeable solution all while being watched by about 15 plant managers, productions managers, HR workers, maintenance management, and any other executive that works in this plant.
    Introductions around the room starting with peers first.
    Work book and timed session to see if you can complete all tasks asap. Resolve problem fast and equivalent, same for question 2-4 in packet. Put in your two sense. If you do not talk, they will not know what you feel is correct and assume you have no opinion on these things.
    Once this is done, you will break off into one on one interviews. Any where form one face to face....up to 4 face to face interviews. It doesn't matter if you get 4 face to face, or one face to face. These woman and men that are qualified to search for the exact personalities that will fit best into their work environment, and become that all around good employee that is working in the right direction to working in the most honest work environment, and making sure that these potential employees are here to work and be part of this production line so they can be proud of our products that we are producing, and our employees reflect our products whether you are on duty or off he clock. you still represent this company, and you need to be responsible enough to never jeopardize any one else's jobs at this plant because of your behaviors or un ability to adjust to change in a department. just be a team player, and you will not always be right. If that is a problem, you may want to reconsider taking a position here. :) its all about compromise....these are your work family now if you are hired in. There has to be trust, and support team while you are here. :) Good luck to you all.

    I applied online – interviewed at Nestlé Waters North America in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had you sit in and listen on calls with a representative for an hour. Staff was very friendly STAR Interview method for questions. Was interviewed by two people some of the questions were the same which was odd because I wanted to use the first good examples but felt I needed to give another story for the second interviewer.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Nestlé Waters North America in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very pleasant interview process. The hiring manager was very personable making it a comfortable experience. What impressed me the most was that she called me, not emailed, to inform me that they chose to move forward with another candidate with more direct experience. Highly professional and very friendly.

    I was also impressed with the benefits package that came along with the position - great bonus, 401K match, as well as advancement opportunities. I hope that one day I will have a chance to interview with them again.

    Supervisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Nestlé Waters North America.

    Interview Details

    . Standard Phone interview, no surprises there. A few words to describe the interview process: confusing; unnatural; rehearsed; contrived. On site interview with presentation. The presentation can be a little nerve racking. Know your subject! Word of advice, you may have to "dumb it down." Some of what I thought was standard terminology in manufacturing confused a couple of them.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Nestlé Waters North America in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview went normal, it was from California HR. Did a route ride to get a feel for the job. Came backfrom route ride , couldn't do a interview because needed two managers for a interview. One manager left while I was coming in from route ride, so I had to come back later in week. Came in for second interview with two managers a week later. The interview was normal, but went south when I said I was used to working hard. The manager that skipped out when I came back from route ride then informed me that there is no way I could possible work as hard as they do. I am 43 so I am sure as as route driver that I have worked hard before. But the old guy corrected me with the fact that I never worked as hard as rt drivers from Nestlé waters. Interview was over I knew I didnt get the job. Very weird

    Retail Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé Waters North America in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an HR rep who received my online application. She pre-screened me and set up my interview. My interview was with 5 different people, two in one room and three in the other. The were of various levels in the company ranging from other sales reps to the division manager. They asked questions they had chosen from a pre-set list of questions I assume was standard to the company. "Describe a creative display you have built." "When you work long hours and get tired what sort of mistakes do you make?" I was asked back for a second "interview" which was an unpaid ride along with the sales reps who had been in my interview to find out if I was a good "fit" for the job. It was only me and 2 other people chosen to do the ride along and I thought I did really well. The HR rep that initially contacted me was there every step of the way before and after each step letting me know how good I was doing and setting up the next step of the process. Once I finished the second interview I waited for about a week with no response then called and emailed the HR rep with no response. After a few days I went ahead and left a message with the manager who was going to make the hiring decision and asked for an answer either way. I never heard back from anyone again. Other people on here had reported similar experiences with this unprofessionalism so I was ready for it but it was still really rude. They could have at least sent a generic "moving on with other candidates" email.

    Interview Questions
    • "What was your most successful sales pitch/achievement?" This was difficult since they knew I was coming from a non-sales background but the questions were very generic and pre-chosen.   Answer Question
