    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Nestlé Waters North America.

    Interview

    process was very long time wise. Applied in December and didnt finish until April and I didnt even make it to the final rounds of interviews. The recruiter was very nice though. She was helpful until she stopped answering my emails.I had my initial phone screen and she told me I would be hearing back in a couple days about the next steps in the process. After two weeks went by I emailed her to get a timeline and I never got a response. Over a month later I got one of those standardized rejection letters. It was strange that she stopped answering. My interview questions were pretty standard things you may ask a student.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Nestlé Waters North America (Lewisville, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Panel Interview - Hiring Manager, Director HR. Series of questions from each individual. Very professional interview. Hiring Manager came back after his session and provided opportunity for me to ask detailed questions about the job and organization. This is a great company - I just wasn't the right fit for the job position they were trying to fill at that time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Nestlé Waters North America (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    3 rounds of interviews. I was brought through the entire process and made it to final round. They gave the position to an internal hire. Apparently Nestle is known to hire from within and not big into external hires. The team seemed decent though.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward. Met in a room at a hotel with a bunch of other companies there. Interview lasted 45 minutes. A Facility manager and HR person. They were really friendly and took notes on everything I said. Asked a bunch of canned questions, but that is the way a large company tends to interview, I've noticed.

    Good interview process mostly asking how you handle difficult situations, and resolving them. Why do you want to work for Nestle. How do respond to difficult customers, and co workers.did I ever see any of my co workers stealing at my past jobs. What were my past responsibilities. They mostly want to know about all your bad experiences. If you don't you better think of some.

    Production Technician/Machine Operator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé Waters North America (Stanwood, MI) in December 2014.

    Interview

    1st week applied online phone interview 3 days later call back next day for testing at MI Works scheduled Testing done a week later 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

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
