Also prepare for behavior questions that relates to times you were successful and times when you made a mistake/had a challenge and how you overcame it.

    Interview Questions
    • I had little work experience and most of that experience was professional and the company trained their employees well, so I didn't really have any personal problems with that company that I had to deal with.   Answer Question

    Digital Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview was by phone and consisted of basic background questions and some behavior-based questions where you were asked to apply a situation from your career to your answer. The in-person interview was grueling at three hours and it was challenging trying to think of different answers for similarly worded questions. I thought it was a bit much for the position I was applying for, but it seems relevant for director and up positions.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were behavior-based and required you to answer with an example from experience.   Answer Question

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare.

    Interview Details

    The interview to hiring process took months from start to finish, however, after the HR phone-screen, there was only one true interview and a meeting/lunch. The process to get the offer letter took longer than it should due to an out of office HR person, but I was still expected to move my family across the country by the initial start date. The move package was generous, but did not include assistance selling our rental property. Be careful of a possible healthcare coverage gap. I didn't realize that they delayed health insurance for 30 days which was expensive. Once I started, my role and the team I manage did not match what was outlined in the job description.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected thing about the interview style is that they don't ask much related to the role. They are all behavioral questions, so study how to successfully complete those types of interviews. You have to pass with a certain score in order to move forward at each step.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They didn't budge much on the offer made during negotiations, just on vacation. I had to take a step-down across the board to take the position, but there were other personal perks that out-weighed those negatives.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    They try very hard to help you feel comfortable during the interview process and it works. I got to have a lot of informal interactions with the people that I would be interviewing with before the interview and it helped me feel a lot more relaxed. They are also very great about getting back to you quickly. With every interview that I had, they had a response for me within two days.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    After responding to a job board posting, I received an email asking to set up a phone interview with some of their designers. The phone interview was fairly easy and we chatted about my portfolio and design experience. I was then invited to an on-site interview at their St. Louis office. There, I met with the whole team to go over my portfolio and resume, went lunch, then went on a tour of the Purina campus. They all asked me many questions regarding design and how I work. On the flip side, every single one of them had a difficult time explaining what they did at Purina. The people were warm and extremely friendly, however, I ultimately think they were looking for someone with more experience.
