Product Development Value Analyst Interview

Product Development Value Analyst
Greenville, SC

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Nestlé USA.

Interview Details – The interview was set up very professionally, with the airline, car rental, & hotel stay. The directions to the facility were accurate and everything really went smoothly from that perspective. The company was using a recruiter who ws the best recruiter I have ever had, before or after. Had an interview w/ HR, the hiring mgr., and a group interview with the team I'd be working with.

Interview Question – I can't recall anything that was out of order or out of line with the questions. However, I was taken on a quick tour during the interview process and they didn't seem to realize that they should've given me some special shoe coverings because the floor was slippery and I had worn dress boots. Thus I became concerned about whether the people working there, including my prospective manager, understood GMPs and safety policies, or enforced them.   View Answer

Supply Chain and Procurement Interview

Supply Chain and Procurement

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Nestlé USA.

Interview Details – I went through the first 30 minute interview and was pleasantly surprised by the questions they asked me, most of which were about my experiences instead of the traditional "Why should I hire you?" or "Why are you interested in this position? types of questions. The interviewers were friendly and they gave some helpful insight into the company

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.
