    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nestlé (Vevey (Switzerland)) in July 2010.

    Interview

    It was very stressful and difficult to even talk to the interviewer because he was using a blackberry during the interview and also calling somebody... I lost my motivation to join the firm immediately after I observed his behavior so I would not be able to tell you much but it was a full of disappointment.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nestlé (York, England (UK)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Online application form with 2 questions followed by online reasoning tests. Phone interview with external company - questions about motivation and a few "strengths based questions" e.g. how do you learn new information. 2 questions on marketing - name a brand that is NOT nestle, how did they do during the financial crisis. name 2 nestle products that you think have good/strong marketing and why. followed by assessment centre in York. 4 parts - written case study about marketing a new product based on some graphs and market data (50 mins). group exercise with 3 others about a situation when you had to let some clients down and keep some happy, you have to make the decision. a case study presentation where you are given an a4 sheet of data about a nestle product and you need to do a 15 minute presentation followed by questions about how to improve/market the brand. extreme time pressure in the preparation. finally a 2-on-1 strengths/competency/motivation interview to finish the day. I did well on the exercises but failed some areas in the interview so was called back for a final interview 2-on-1 again but also failed this one. vague/weak answers and not enough proof of motivation for marketing coming from a biology background.
