I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé USA.
Interview Details – Good process. Great people. No surprises. Made to feel welcome. Fairly fast - just a few weeks. Met with 5 people. Various levels of management. Taken to lunch as well. Important for them to see the real person (in a relaxed setting) versus just during a formal interview. Important to have good questions for them that shows you have researched the company or specific business opportunity. Make sure you follow up with a thank you note or email. The people/ relationship skills are highly valued. One of the best interview processes I have ever gone though.

Interview Details – Hiring process is a bit long in comparison with other companies. They are more of a traditional company so they want to make sure every box is checked.

They didn't call to reject but rather sent a mass email

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Nestlé USA in February 2014.
Interview Details – There were three rounds of interviews with the questions being almost exclusively behavioral-based questions with one technical question (what's FCF for example, so a softball one). There was a small presentation on safety procedures (common sense and you're fine, you go through nothing dangerous) and they paid for the trip and meals. Overall everyone was as they call it "Nestle Nice," with the exception of one individual.
Interview Question – One uncomfortable and worrying incident that occurred was when one HR employee mentioned she liked Glendale, California, but had a long pause and stated she worried about the "demographic changes" to the city.

As a minority, I'm sensitive towards microaggressions that may occur even when unintentional. Answer Question
