Nestlé Waters North America – Why Work With Us?


As the nation’s largest bottled water company, Nestlé Waters North America is behind many of the leading domestic and imported brands sold throughout the United States and Canada. Alongside a varied range of bottled water and tea products, our success relies on our talented team of people. Each and every day, their individual elements combine to help us achieve incredible things together – with the kind of strength, energy and integrity that you’re unlikely to find anywhere else.

The Company Behind the Brands


Our company history starts in 1976, when we introduced Perrier® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water in North America. That brand launched a generation of bottled water drinkers, and as bottled water became the beverage of choice for active, health-minded individuals, we sought to bring together quality regional bottlers to meet that demand. 

Today, our bottled water and tea portfolio is more than 11 brands strong, and we continue to lead the industry with the highest standards in quality for purified water – ensuring healthy hydration for generations to come.

Nestlé Waters Values U.S. Veterans


Flexibility for Military Requirements

We know that training obligations and calls to active service are an important priority. You’ll have the support and benefit programs you need to continue fulfilling your military responsibilities, from annual reserve training to answering a call to active duty.



Picture Your Future

If you’re currently in college or recently graduated and ready to explore what your future holds, Nestlé Waters can offer you possibilities in many career areas, including Sales, Marketing, Engineering, Customer Service and Delivery. Whatever direction you choose to pursue, you'll have the chance to transform your education into an experience that's truly special.

A Healthy Career From the Start

Some graduates are driven by the head. Others by the heart. At Nestlé Waters, you’ll have the chance to grow in both these areas – to develop professionally and personally, intellectually and emotionally.

Whether you join us on our Sales, Marketing, Engineering, Customer Service or Delivery division, you’ll get to the heart of one of our key business areas. You’ll begin to understand the core workings of the world’s healthy hydration company. 

You’ll discover that our entry-level positions have some common characteristics. Individual responsibility and autonomy are facts of life here. So while you’ll benefit from best-in-class training, you’ll need the drive to make the most of our formal development and on-the-job training.

Excelling here means sharing our passion for enhancing lives; it means taking ownership of your future and remaining open to the unique learning opportunities that will come your way. We encourage our people to view their career as a journey. There are ongoing opportunities here to step up, broaden your exposure or deepen your skills. 



Nestlé Waters Route Sales Delivery Drivers are more than just drivers. For many of our consumers, they are the face of the brand. Beyond delivering each consumer’s pre-ordered items, our drivers form relationships with our consumers and provide suggestions for other popular products. For this reason, we consider our Route Sales team an extension of our customer service.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stamford, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé Waters North America (Stamford, CT).

    Interview

    Multiple interviews with stakeholders that were very pointed. Every situation I was asked had a specific business purpose - it wasn't asking just to see how you reacted. HR was super helpful - being available for any questions and organizing all 6 interviews with a breeze. It was a great experience.
