    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé USA in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I met Nestle at the career fair on campus where I was immediately offered an on-campus interview the following day. The interview was mostly behavioral based questions. At the end of the interview i filled out my location preference for where I wanted to be placed. I later was offered second round interviews which was a phone interview. They asked a lot of the same questions that I was asked during the first round interviews which I was not sure if they wanted the same answers or different than the ones I used before.

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

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took almost three months from application to start date. I applied online and had an interview three weeks later. I was offered the job almost a month later and then started a month after that. They are VERY slow with this process. The interview was pretty easy.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was intimidating. Maybe some of the "describe a time.." those are always hard to think of.   Answer Question

    Human Resources Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview Details

    It was a very comprehensive interview process. I met with several people and really got to know the culture. They answered my questions about the job and responsibilities adequately. The recruiter did a great job in selling the opportunity, and why Nestle was a top employer.

    Interview Questions
    • Too many people on the interview list. How many of them will really have a say in making the decision? The manager the position reports to really didn't sell the job. It's a competitive job market out there so employers should also tell applicants why their company is better.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated but they stayed firm on the offer

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Nestlé USA in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Worked via recruiter but final interview was a behavioral interview. In that, they asked you to describe how you would handle situations. It was kind of difficult but if you put yourself in the mindset the person you would like to be, the answers came fairly easy

    Interview Questions
    • many of the behavior questions required examples, so that was a struggle   View Answer

    I negotiated hard for max salary and got the highest one the recruiter had seen for that position but that mainly was related to an overall salary decrease from my current job

    NSDP/Retail Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview Details

    The process from start to finish was about 2 months, with two interviews on the university campus followed by a "day in the field" with a current member of the NSDP program/Retail Representative. As far as the interviews go, everyone is quite friendly and isn't trying to trick you with any crazy brain teasers or puzzles like in consulting or tech.

    To Outline the process:

    1.) Information Session on the company after submitting resume and scheduling interview: at this stage they'll tell you all of the benefits of Nestle and how great it is (most of these people will interview the next day).

    2.) First Round Interview: This will be an interview with someone who is still in the NSDP program (first 5 years) and then a Director or someone at that level.

    3.) Second Round: This interview will be with a VP of Sales or some other high level person, you'll have more of a chat and any questions will largely be behavioral based.

    4.) Interview in LA/Glendale California, they'll fly you out and you'll have a networking event followed by a dinner. The following day you will have a half day of interviews. You'll continuously be meeting with VPs and other high level people at this point and this is all part of the interview process.

    Recommendations: Geographical flexibility is paramount for this position and being able to move once every year/2 years. If you aren't geographically flexible you probably will not get the position, within the first 4 years alone you will likely move 3 times. If they ask you whether there is any place you wouldn't want to work, just say that location doesn't matter as that puts them off.
