Brand Manager Interview

Brand Manager
Bucharest (Romania)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Nestlé.

Interview Details – They were late at interview and the lady who ran the discussion started by pointing out how not fit I was for the job. It was weird as she focused all her energy (shared with working on the laptop - another bad manner) in a wrong direction. Very funny! :)

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Sydney (Australia)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Nestlé in January 2013.

Interview Details – Four rounds for a contract role was a bit more than I expected. First a screen with HR over the phone, then a "by the form" interview with the marketing manager with behavioural questions as well as functional experience proof. Then a meeting with the MM and the Head of Marketing where I had to present a case study on a grocery category unrelated to the role I was applying for. Lastly a "meet and greet" with a person in a role parallel to the position.

Interview Question – A very detailed question about one of the products included in the case study.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Role and conditions were not presented as negotiable.

International Auditor Interview

International Auditor

I applied through other source and interviewed at Nestlé.

Interview Details – Online application
Video interview via Sonru software
Assessment center

The online application has sections about education, work experience and other activities. They'll ask you about your salary expectations so if you rellocate to Switzerland please bear in mind that living expenses are very high.

There is a also section where you select the languages that you speak but be aware that at one point in the video interview( where you'll see some questions and have to reply in 2 mins) they will ask you to speak in all of those languages.

Interview Questions

  • Introduce yourself using all the languages you've mentioned in the application   Answer Question
  • Why do you want to work for us?
    What do you think an auditor does?
    What qualities should he have?
    There were also some technical but easy questions like : "Which one of these is a liability? Explain your reasoning", but I no longer remember them.

Intern Interview

Intern

Interviewed at Nestlé

Interview Details – First had to fill out the application form with details and a couple of questions. I waited a few months then told I had got through to an online numerical test which I wasn't really expecting but it was a little easier than ones I had done previously, although a very strict time limit. The there was a telephone interview, which they said would be strengths-based like the ones used by Ernst & Young. The interviewer phoned right on the dot of the agreed time, and was friendly however I thought lots of the "strengths" questions resembled traditional competency questions more than the example strength questions I had read. At the end she asked questions about the company, I think she asked two.

They said they would tell me results by the end of the week however never got back to me, even after I emailed.

Interview Question – In the current economic climate, what does a company such as Nestle have to do in order to expand?   Answer Question
