    Route Sales Representative Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nestlé Waters North America (Elmsford, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Communication with the HR department which set up the in office interview and the third process which was a day of shadowing a driver was pleasant, painless and straightforward.

    Don't bother going in for the "final" part of what they consider the "interview" process. If you made it this far it should definitely be considered as the "hiring" process. It's actually a weird "interview" in which you shadow a driver and view what exactly the job duties are, in a hands on experience, while asking him anything job related.

    The first thing the driver says is "hey I know they told you not to help me and not to carry any water, but please help me out and lend me a hand. Feel free to grab a few stuff but not too much". He tries to gain your confidence and make it seem like you will score points with him. Not true! I did exactly 70 stops with the driver and physically helped him with 67 of those 70 stops. He tells me the whole time, " Yea you will be a great fit, you seem like a smart guy and you look like you can handle this. I definitely won't tell them anything that would have them think otherwise". Yet I didn't get an offer, not for the "new" driver helper position and not for the level 1 at your service position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé Waters North America (El Monte, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very long process, first you are interviewed a few times over the phone. In the face to face interview you are told more what is expected more than anything else. Gave me the impression of high turn over. Then you are required to shadow someone from 2 different roles, which I do not understand!

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé Waters North America.

    Interview

    The first step is a phone interview and if that is successful the next steps which is 2 will be a schedule ride along for a day with a Route Sales Representative to see what a day is like being a RSR 3 and 4 will be to have a face to face interview with the Route Suprevisor and then the Zone Operations Manager. If you succeed you will do a background check and medical check and have a start date following a few weeks after that.

    Many interviews starting with a computerized phone interview. If you are selected a simple call back and interview that could be followed by a ride along to determine if you are still interested. Then a few more interviews with various managers so they can compare results.

    There is a starting wage pre-determined for an RSR position, so the wage was known from the beginning.
