    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview

    All three of my interviews were very different due to whom I was speaking with. The first interview was with HR who was very friendly and tried to get a general feel for my personality. The second interview was with an OMT who had finished the program who asked more technical questions about how I got along with others and why I was interested in the program. She was very stoic and gave little verbal feedback about how the interview was going so I found this part the hardest. The third interview is with someone who would be your supervisor. I enjoyed speaking with him as he had a better understanding of how the company works as a whole.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview

    On-campus interview with two graduates from the school I went to that work their. Sat down and got straight down to business with about 3-4 interview questions. Then they proceeded to give me a chance to ask questions. Very nice and polite, but didn't land another interview. They want to see some previous sales experience and try to relate things you have done to sales.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about 3 questions: explain a time you worked on a team and what was accomplished, what experience are you most proud of on your resume and why, what interested me such much about Nestle.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé USA in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen, day in the field shadowing someone who is already in the position, Face to Face with 2 regional managers. Phone screen last around 30 minutes getting to know about previous experiences and if you can communicate effectively. Day in the field is going with someone who is already in the position. You don't have to help but it's good to show initiative and ask questions to the person you are with as they will be reporting back to the person who will be interviewing you. That lasted about 3-4 hours if you want to stay that long. The face to face interview lasted about 45 minutes. Received an offer about a week after the face to face interview. Overall a good interview experience. It does take some a while to get through the whole process as they want to make sure you are a good fit for them and they are are a good fit for you.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were your typical interview questions. The interviewers really want to know about past experiences that would relate to the position that you are applying for and what you can do for them and the company.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Nestlé USA (Madison, WI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Spoke with a recruiter at a career fair held on college campus. I was contacted a few days later for a first round interview. I was told that there would be three rounds, with the final round being in California. Attended an information session prior to the interview where they pushed for great sales people. First round interview was with a senior account executive and another person who had just completed the sales development program. It was pretty casual, questions about resume and prior experience.

    Interview Questions

    • What is one thing that you want us to remember about you when making our selection? Otherwise, just a few behavioral questions. It was very laid back and more of a conversation.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview

    I was contacted for a phone interview/screening almost 3 months after applying. Initial interviewer knew more about the role than I expected as it is difficult for HR to always know details of a particular position. I had a second phone interview and then only one in-person interview.

    Interview Questions

    • I always hate the question what is your salary, and this interviewer surprised me by asking this very early on and not at the end of the interview as is more typical.   Answer Question
