Operations Management Program Interview

Operations Management Program
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Nestlé in October 2013.

Interview Details – - Applied Online
- Phone interview ~ 2 weeks after applying
- Phone interview ~ 2 weeks after first phone interview
- Final round in Chicago ~ 1 week after final phone interview.

In Chicago, there were ~200 people there interviewing for various internship and full-time positions. Nestle booked every conference room in the entire hotel and had about 30 reps who interviewed people in individual rooms. Each person underwent 3 interviews. Two were with engineers, and one was with HR. Each interview was 30 minutes long, and were more behavioral in nature rather than technical (I don't recall any challenging technical questions).

Interview Question – All behavioral questions. I always hate answering the question of how you dealt with a difficult team member, but I got that one.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Because my background is in engineering, and I realized that Nestle outsources all of their actual engineering work, so all engineers at Nestle are "project engineers" who essentially make the calls to other engineering firms and have them fix the problems, rather than fixing/designing things themselves. I wish the interview process had actually involved an on-site tour, because when I did one after receiving the job, it opened my eyes and made it clear to me that I did not want the job.

Marketing Associate

Interviewed at Nestlé

Interview Details – Straightforward and streamlined. Recruiter screening via phone, recruiter 1st round via phone, marketing manager via phone and then 6 different people in the office. The office visit was very long and each person had an hour with me. Some of them didn't pay attention. 1 of the interviewers was a recruiter.

Food Technologist Interview

Food Technologist
Northbrook, IL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé in May 2013.

Interview Details – pretty straightforward. They wanted to know about my previous experience (one of my jobs matched their description) and stressed on being able to communicate and work independently. It came out to be true about being independent (literally!) as the manager was either sick or off to factories and vendors all

Interview Question – fun interview, over quick   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was with the contractor and I didn't negotiate much because I was looking to get my foot in the door

Supply Chain Analyst Interview

Supply Chain Analyst

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Nestlé in October 2013.

Interview Details – applied through campus recruiting and got a first round interview.

Interview was 45 minutes long, half behavioral half case interview. Make sure to read about the company, current valuation and how big the company is. Interview was very nice and helpful during the case interview. the case wasn't really hard, just think out loud.

Interviewed three weeks ago and still didn't hear a reply, so I probably didn't get through to the second round.

Interview Question – Behavioral, and simple case interview nothing surprising   Answer Question
