Assistant Brand Manager Interview

Assistant Brand Manager
Glendale, CA

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Nestlé USA in February 2009.

Interview Details – I knew someone in HR, which is how I got considered. The position received 900 online applications - no one is reading them. After a phone interview I was granted a day long interview, rapid succession meetings with several members of the dept. I believe they hired someone (not me) from that round of interviews

Interview Question – These are the standard Bschool interview questions. i am generally stumped by questions like - how many milt drinkers do you think there are in the US.   Answer Question
