    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in July 2015.

    Interview

    It was a phone screening that lasted a little over 45 minutes long. The interview consisted of the HR person asking me about my resume, 2 journal entry questions, and a few behavioral questions. Then I think I asked 3-4 questions of my own at the end. She also gave me the opportunity to tell her about anything on my resume that I wanted to talk about.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare (Saint Louis, MO) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The phone interview was tough... All behavioral based. It was a long process for me between the phone interview and the actual in-person interview. The HR department is great, I cannot say enough nice things. The travel was arranged and everything was set up very well for the in-person interview. Imagine my dissapointment when none of the territories I applied for were open, I felt lied too and basically had my time wasted. The interview itself was completely unorganized, the interviewers were nice but one of them was less than professional, aka not very organized and just left a bad taste in my mouth about the company in general. Three separate interviews, each had 4 behavioral based questions. Several questions overlapped, we were told to give different examples for each question and for each interviewer if possible.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in June 2015.

    Interview

    A LOT of rapid fire behavior based interview questions...They really wanted to discuss salary in the first round of interviews and were very straightforward letting me know the ballpark figure I had given them to complete the online application was far and beyond what they had in mind. Did not like the tone of that conversation nor discussing salary in the first round of interviews to that degree. Also sounds like the position is more of a jr- mid level position as the salary was in the low 50s. They dont have any kind of in-house production studio and by the end of the conversation I felt I was over qualified for the position so I wasn't upset at all when they didnt make me an offer.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and the very next day received an email requesting a phone screening. I was given a range of dates a month in advance to schedule my phone interview. 3 weeks went by and I never heard back from the recruiter confirming when the interview would be. Luckily I emailed again and found out my interview was scheduled for the very next afternoon. The recruiter asked me to go over every job listed on my resume and an in depth job description, asked why I wanted to work at Purina and then followed up with two behavioral questions. My main frustration with the interview was that they basically asked me the same question twice in slightly different ways. So in my case when you don't really have a great example for the question to begin with, it's really difficult to come up with a second example. I was disappointed that they didn't ask a wider range of questions to really understand my experience and what I had to offer.
