Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé USA in March 2013.

Product Development Value Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
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
