    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.

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Allentown, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Allentown, PA
    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.

    Employee Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Several steps in the process, starting with an on line application, a formal phone screen, then several in person interviews. If all goes well, there is a work-with experience, then a final meeting with an upper level leader. Assuming you pass a formal background check and drug screen, you are hired.
