    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a response within 2 days to set up a phone interview. Interview consisted of only 2 questions and didn't really provide the opportunity to stand out. I would say the person doing the interview was very nice but a bit lost as it was her first week on the job.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Professional and quick in responding to resume submissions. Standard interview process going over resume and situational questions and how you handled it, but covered the basics. I was able to ask questions about the position, location, hours etc. Interviewer talked very fast and it all sounded very scripted. She was definitely going through the motions, asking the question, noting answers but not a lot of personal involvement in the process. Over all the experience was good.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing unexpected or difficult if you plan ahead for the "have you ever...and how did you handle it" questions.(Go to their website for tips on interviewing.)   Answer Question

    Technical Services Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied online. Had a telephone interview (screen) a little less than 2 weeks later. The recruiter had me walk through my resume. She asked me several behavioral based questions which were easy. Lasted about 30 minutes.

    Was called in for a face-to-face interview about 3 weeks later. As I waited in the lobby, it soon became apparent that the other 2 external candidates were sitting with me. The recruiter walked us all to another building together. We were then put in 3 glass rooms right next to each other. Talk about awkward. I was interviewed by 5 people over the course of 3 hours. The first hour was spent with the hiring manager. The second two hour-long interviews were with pairs of associates in the department. They asked behavioral based questions that were similar to those of the recruiter. The only difficult part was that they asked very similar questions over and over so you had to think of different examples/schenarios.

    The hiring manager called me 6 days later to offer me the job.

    Interview Details

    Lengthy online application process takes a fair amount of time to complete. The online application was followed by a phone screen. The phone screen is all behavioral based questions and left little time to ask questions back regarding the position.
