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

    "

    *Give an example of a a most difficult team that you were involved with and what factors contributed to the difficulty.

    First interview phone: with HR person

    *give an example of where additional research and digging deeper would create better results.
    *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 first part, I pretty much gave the same answers as per my first interview.

    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.

    Supply Chain Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Nestlé in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Nestle contacted me through email to schedule an in person interview with a HR person and a supply chain person. The interview itself was very brief, for it was under 30 minutes. They seemed to be in a rush and had prepared questions ahead of time to screen people quickly. It was a first round interview, and I was not offered a second round interview. They asked some behavioral questions and some technical questions regarding supply chain. I don't think they were actually looking for knowledge about supply chain, but just rather how you think since they were interviewing people from many majors including business, economics, operations research, and industrial engineering.

    Interview Questions
    • If you had a 90 items of a specific product, but your client asks for 100, what would you do? Would you run the production line again, knowing that it would be very expensive since the production line only makes batches of 90 at a time?   Answer Question

    Anonymous Employee in Glendale, CA
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.
