Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare (Saint Louis, MO) in February 2015.

Interview

I applied online, they emailed me 2 weeks after for a phone interview. I replied and booked a day, one recruiter were supposed to call me but never called. I sent an email to the woman who contacted me, she never replied. So I called 3 days after to re-scheduled a phone interview. They finally called me 1 week later and it was very short (only 10 min). The woman was not friendly, she was in a hurry. I could hear other recruiters to call people behind so they were pretty busy. She asked me about my education, my experiences, if I needed to be sponsored, and only 1 based behavior questions. She told me they will contact me in maximum 1 week and now it is more than one week and they still did not tell me if I am hired or not. I guess not. This was the worst experience I ever had so far and they are not professional at all. Do not say anything if you cannot respect your promise!

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

    Interview

    Hour long phone interview, flew me out to HQ, then you sit in a room and get 3 1 on 1 interviews. If you make the cut they say you will get a call, if you don't you get the standard thankyou, but no thankyou email. At least they pay for the process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in February 2014.

    Interview

    Overall it was a waste of time and very disappointing interview process. I had put in a application for a specific area the position was being advertised for. I received an email quickly asking me to set up a phone interview and to send times that worked for me. I sent my times over and was scheduled for a phone interview about a week later. When it came down to the phone interview we talked for about 5 minutes until it came up that the position in my area was already filled and the only positions open are on the other side of the country. Feel like this was a huge was of my time since I spent a lot of time preparing and researching for the interview not to mention it was a huge let down. I am all for offering the option to apply for the other positions but be up front about abut it. The position is still on their company website as well.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare (Raleigh, NC) in November 2013.

    Interview

    After I applied I received an email of interest. Then had a phone interview which was short and we went over my resume and had me explain everything on my resume. After that she asked me two questions and asked a ton of questions about them. The interviewer was very short and non conversational. I am pretty sure they are told to not be friendly and be very direct and get the questions answered and not to waste any time.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Nestlé Purina PetCare in June 2013.

    Interview

    You have to apply online first, then you will be extended a phone interview. The phone interview is off a list of behavioral questions and a little difficult. If you make it through the phone interview, you will interview in person with leadership. In some cases there is a lag between the phone interview and the in person interview, but they are very helpful and accommodating in both situations.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions are behavioral, like "tell me a time when you did xyz."   1 Answer
