    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Nestlé (Chicago, IL) in October 2013.

    Interview

    - 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 Questions

    • 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

    Reasons 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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • Behavioral, and simple case interview nothing surprising   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Nestlé (Saint Louis, MO) in September 2013.

    Interview

    This was by far the best and most efficient interview I have ever attended. Because I was an out of state candidate my first 3 interviews were via a web-interview. I interviewed with my current manager, a co-worker, and a director in a similar department. The total time for all 3 interviews and an offer was 1 week. Once I had verbally accepted the offer, my spouse and I were flown to St. Louis to meet the team and to ensure a good fit with the company. The one thing I appreciated about their interview process was that they truly came after me....there was no going back and forth with recruiters and the whole process was very quick.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical questions when I was not familiar with all of their current systems   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate on Salary. I felt it was a very fair offer. I did request a sign on bonus to make up for the fact that I would be walking away from a year end bonus with my current company.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé (Northbrook, IL) in May 2013.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    Negotiation

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