Interview Details – The interview process was fairly straight forward. The communication was sufficient. One thing is that for this particular position I would need to travel 60-75%. The job description on their website did not mention any of this. Everything else about the job description has been accurate (after working here for 2.5 months).
Interview Question – Everything was fairly straight forward with STAR questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I should have negotiated, but felt pressured to make a decision. I had about 2 days to make a decision since my contact was going to be out of the office for a week. This did not allow any time to negotiate.

After passing this you will be invited to have an in person interview at the corporate office in St. Louis, MO. You will most likely be interviewed by 3 different people on the team on a one on one style sit down.
Beware of travel office; if it wasn't for the utmost due diligence I wouldn't have even made it to St. Louis because there is so many people working on one thing.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in June 2013.
Interview Details –
I applied for the job and about a month later received an e-mail to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was very structured and began with me walking the HR representative through my resume. I was then asked some questions about how I heard about the job and why I wanted to work for Nestle Purina. The phone interview ended with 4 behavioral based questions. The HR representative said I would hear if I were to move onto the in person interview in about 2 weeks.
Two weeks went by so I contacted the HR rep I had interviewed with who confirmed I would know in a few days. I few days later, I received an email to schedule an in-person interview.
The next week, I went in for a 4 hour long interview. The first hour was lunch with a manager and my potential boss. I was then led to a conference room where I was interviewed for 3 hours (1 hour each with 2 different people in each interview). The questions were all behavior based except for any questions regarding my resume. There were 4 behavior-based questions per interview but they each had about 4 sub-questions.
Although some of the questions were challenging and stressful at times, the people I met were extremely nice. It was obviously apparent that they loved their jobs and were passionate about what they did. I really enjoyed the experience.
Interview Question – I prepared a lot for this interview so none of the questions were unexpected. Some of the behavioral questions were challenging because they were similar but you had to come up with different situations. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – This was my first permanent job so I was just happy to get the job. I gave them a minimum salary and they were able to come very close to that.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in August 2013.
Interview Details – I was contacted on LinkedIn by a talent sourcer to apply for this position because I had a background in banking and retail and she thought I would be a great fit. I applied immediately and was contacted by a recruiter 4 days later to set up a phone screen (behavioral questions). I had the phone screen the next week which was scheduled for 1 hour, but only ended up being about 30 mins. I was 1st asked to go through each position on my resume and explained what I did and why I left. Then I was asked only 2 behavioral questions. When it was my time to ask questions I asked about 10-15 minute worth of questions (so about half of the interview). The entire time I felt as if the interviewer was rushing, cutting me off and not interested. One of the questions I asked was 'Do you have any concerns about me or about my qualifications that may prevent you from selecting me for the job?' The interviewer said no and that if it was only up to her she would choose me. I sent a thank you email a couple of hours later. After 7 days of hearing nothing I called and left the interviewer a message about a process update and expressing my continued interest in the position. The next day I received an email saying I was not chosen to continue in the process.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in January 2013.
Interview Details – The hiring and interview process is a behaviorally-based system and it proves to being in the best and brightest talent to organizations like Nestle Purina. My advice is to take a deep breath, answer the question slowly and honestly and make sure your answer thouroughly explains the WHAT, WHEN, WHERE and WHY.
Interview Question – I don't necessarily think any of the questions were difficult or unexpected. I think the most difficult part is articulating those emotional and impactful moments in previous academic or professional experiences that you need to professionally regurgitate to the interviewer(s).

Negotiation Details – It was simple since I was honest both honest and realistic with myself and the employer.
