    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. 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

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé in March 2013.

    The process was very strait forward and well laid out. I was for a phone interview within a week of sending my application; my personal interview was scheduled in a professional and timely manner as well. The interviewer also provided a personal follow up call whether I did or didn't receive the job.

    Interview Questions
    • No hard questions. The hardest part was asking one! The Hiring Manager told you LITERALLY everything about the company/job. It was hard to find a question to ask him!   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Nestlé in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Pre-interview screening questions answered via email (rephrased):

    "
    *Describe the type of complex IT systems you have implemented.
    *Give example of advanced level work you have done in [software application for generating reports].
    *What type of software or systems have you generated to help the business operate better?
    *Give an example of a a most difficult team that you were involved with and what factors contributed to the difficulty.
    *What type of on-the-spot excel reports have you generated and edited to meet requirements?"

    First interview phone: with HR person

    *give an example of where you had to prioritize your workload and how you went about doing so, and your reasoning behind it.
    *give an example of a situation where you had to act independently against the advice of a *superior and what your reasoning behind that was.

    Second interview, in-person:

    met with two experienced manager-directors, they basically went over my resume and asked to provide examples for each bullet point; they asked about extra-curricular activities; they explained about Nestle's team-oriented framework/work-ethic. They also asked

    Third interview, via phone: this was split into two 40 min segments, one involving an HR person, which was similar to my first phone interview (same questions even), and a second interview involving a Technical Programmer Developer Engineer.

    for the second part, the technical questions:

    revolved around specific applications I have used in the past

    software/SDLC standards I am familiar with

    questions about development tools, RDBMs involving extracting data based on primary keys, how they relate to structuring a request for data in tables.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview 1: Phone interview. HR recruiter called, and essentially reviewed every section on the job description to see if there were any parts that were unclear. The recruiter then went over how the interview process worked, and what i could expect the next interviewers to ask. The interview lasted about 30 minutes.

    Interview 2: Phone interview. This was the "technical" interview with two associates who would potentially be my team mates. The questions focused on my project experience and technical troubleshooting examples. The interview lasted about 30 minutes.

    Interview 3+ many more: Off-site interview. This was a series of 1:1, 2:1, and a panel interview with a presentation the interviewee gives. Questions spanned the usual spectrum. The interviews lasted just over 5 hours.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Oakland, CA

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Nestlé in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter contacted me, and then presented me to the company. I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. The next phase was a series of interviews - and there were people who were not geographically nearby, so they were via phone. I went to the offices and spend about 4 hours interviewing 1:1 with 4 different people. A fifth person took me out to lunch, and while it was still and interview, it was casual. All that said, that was in Dreyer's world -- Nestle now handles all of the hiring and I have no idea how that works.
