    Associate Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Solon, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Solon, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Nestlé USA.

    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. The interview process was first rounds then the brought a group out for the second round interviews. The second round had three 1-hour interviews back to back. They didn't call to reject but rather sent a mass email

    Interview Questions
    • The questions are basic behavioral questions, "tell me about a time when...". As with any interview, be prepared to answer why you are interested in Nestle and why they would be a good fit for you. None of the questions were unexpected.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    I applied online in the fall and had my pre-screen interview over Skype in January with someone from Human Resources. During that interview, my interview decided I should go to the next round, so we scheduled the next round at the end of that meeting. I then had a behavioral phone interview one of their financial analysts.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly extensive: the first round of interviews for me consisted of phone interviews with the HR manager and other managers of the company. After I made it past the initial rounds I was flown down to headquarters in Glendale to interview with 17 other candidates. The first day in Glendale was an informal mixer and dinner with Nestle employees and intern candidates. The next day of I went through 3 back-to-back interviews with a mix of HR and Supply Chain managers. I heard back from Nestle around 2 days after the interview process.

    Finance & Accounting Interview Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Solon, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Solon, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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. She further mentioned that she was also concerned about the changing population of the state over the past couple of decades. As a minority, I'm sensitive towards microaggressions that may occur even when unintentional.   Answer Question
