    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview

    I received a call from a recruiter who read from a list of questions. She then scheduled me for an in person interview. Upon arrival, I had no name to ask for, no office directions. Once I was in front of the hiring manager he asked me if I knew the job only paid 12.40/hr? I was told we would discuss pay in person.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Nestlé USA (Farmington, NM) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and within 2 days I heard a response. An interview was set up several days later, and I had a 30 minute conversation about my skills and background with an HR woman. Unfortunately, I was told that I had to relocate to their district (which is only 7 miles away from my residence). I declined, and the interview was over.

    Average Interview

    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.

    I applied online – interviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview

    3 rounds all the same day. HR, Director, and VP. All about an hour long. Nothing specific as a call out for somebody else going in. pretty standard. Some of them had dead eyes, weren't really interested in the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Nestlé USA (Glendale, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very laid back, casual interview where the recruiters want to get to know you. They take the program incredibly seriously, so the first round was with two members of the sales department on campus, with the second interview being with a current NSDP member and a Vice President on campus. Afterwards, I was selected for a final round interview in Glendale, California. I had 3- 45 minutes interviews out there, as well as having a banquet and dinner with the employees at Nestle. Just be excited and honest in your answers.
