Finance & Accounting Intern Interview

Finance & Accounting Intern

Interviewed at Nestlé USA

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.

Procurement Intern Interview

Procurement Intern

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed 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.

Supply Chain Trainee Interview

Supply Chain Trainee
Glendale, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé USA in October 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online in September and the process took about three weeks. First I had a brief phone screen and a one-on-one phone interview. A week later I got the email that I was invited to the superday in their California headquarters.

Once I was there, we had a networking reception the night before and three interviews the next day. All were pretty standard behavioral questions with one or two basic supply chain questions, and all the interviewers were very friendly with the exception of an HR guy who seemed very disinterested (I assume he's the reason I didn't get the offer). Was kind of frustrating when they sent out offers to people I met and I had to wait another week and a half, but i wasn't surprised when the rejection came.

Interview Question – Nothing really-- pretty typical behavioral questions.   Answer Question
