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

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé Waters North America in January 2012.
Interview Details – My first response in the interview process was an email from HR. They told me they liked my resume and would like to give me a phone interview. I was asked numerous interview questions. Normal things. EXP. "Name a time you have seen an employee breaking the rules in the work place. How did you handle the situation?" "What are some qualities you believe are necessary to have good customer service skills?" After I passed the phone interview, I was contacted within a week to inform me they were interested in scheduling me for a route ride. The route ride was my first taste of being a route driver. I was at the branch at 6 AM. They tell you to not lift anything, just ride along and observe. Don't listen to this rule. They want you to bust your ass and help the driver. Get out at every stop and carry bottles inside. Talk to customers and show good customer service skills. This will get you to the next step. A few days after the ride along I got call for a 1 on 1 interview with the Unit Leader. This was pretty much the same as the phone interview but with more questions. A few hours later I was offered a job over the phone through HR, pending I passed a pre-employment drug screen, background check, and was able to obtain a class B cdl learners permit before my first day. (You have a much better chance if you already have your cdl, but it's not required.) After accomplishing all of the above, I began my job with NWNA about 2 weeks later.
