Approximately 2 weeks after my initial interview they asked if I would be interested in going to Chicago for a second interview. I accepted and they paid for all of my travel arrangements. At the second interview I had 3 back to back interviews (all were behavioral). The following Monday they called and extended me an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nestlé (Columbus, OH) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Started with an HR phone interview. Then spoke to the other product development scientists, ended with a skype interview. All in all it was pretty straight forward and the questions they asked were expected and of moderate difficulty . The skype interview was a little nerve racking because I had never done one before, but it went very smoothly.

    Supply Chain Internship Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nestlé (San Francisco, CA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    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.
