    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.

    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

    Interview process was pretty standard my process was fairly quick. I first started with a phone interview which lasted about 30min and i was then moved on to the second interview which was a face to face with a branch manager and my 3rd interview was a route ride which lasted a whole shift then ended with a interview with the manager at the branch I was applying to. All the questions were repetitive and very easy to answer it helps to have tour cdl prior to starting, I have my class A which helped me in my case. The whole interview process was done within 1 week the faster it moves along the better chance to you have.
