Assistant Brand Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in August 2013.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a talent sourcer via email regarding a phone interview for the ABM position. Quick turnaround time as I was contacted the same week I applied and interviewed later that week. I was instructed to allow 50 - 60 minutes for the interview.
The phone interview was very scripted. The talent sourcer informed me she was going to review my resume in detail with me and then ask a few follow up behavior questions in the STAR format. She further instructed and emphasized that all decisions are made by the hiring manager and it's up to him if i'm contacted or not for a second interview.
Interview Question – The most unexpected question I received was around my education. She asked what college did I attend and what year did I graduate, which felt more like an attempt to figure out my socioeconomic status and/or age. Very odd. Answer Question
Assistant Brand Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in February 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online and an HR manager called me to schedule a phone interview. She was very specific in telling me that she would be asking me behavioral questions and that I needed to answer them in the STAR format.
The phone interview was very structured. She started off by telling me how the interview was going to work: I was going to walk her through my resume, she was going to ask a few details about myself and then we would go into the behavioral portion of the interview.
The interview process involves the HR person taking a bunch of notes on your responses to questions, sending it to the hiring manager and the hiring manager decides, based on the written notes, if they want to talk to you or not.
I emailed the HR later a couple weeks later when I didn't hear from her about the job - I was not invited for a second round interview.
Interview Question – What is your most recent business challenge where you had incomplete information? Answer Question
Assistant Brand Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in May 2012.
Interview Details – I had 1 telephonic interview followed by an onsite interview which included 3 x 1.5 hour long interviews with Directors/Sr. Brand manager at St. Louis. It was good overall. The people were very nice and the culture of the company was friendly and collaborative. It was the usual behavioral interview with lot of followups for each question they'd ask. No case questions. They wanted to see if your past experiences/skills is going to make your the right fit for the company/role.
Interview Question – The followups for each behavioral was tough. Also she asked me to introduce myself in the reverse chronological manner. That was the first for me. View Answers (2)
