    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Nestlé USA (Fort Wayne, IN) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online 8/2014 and interviewed with an HR recruiter approximately 1.5 months later then with the hiring manager 2 days later. I was contacted about 2 weeks later for an in-person interview, but I had already accepted another position. I really enjoyed both of my interviews - the company seems very people-oriented which is refreshing.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé USA (New York, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    I negotiated but they stayed firm on the offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Nestlé USA (Glendale, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    * Online Application - End of April 2014. * Contacted by Nestle recruiter on May 9th, 2014 for initial phone interview, which was setup a few days later on May 12th, 2014. In addition, a candidate profile needs to be filled out before the phone interview. * Received a call and e-mail confirmation on June 19th, 2014 from Nestle Recruiting for face interview on June 25th, 2014. * Interview was split into 3 back-to-back 1 hour Interviews. Each interview is conducted by a team of 2 who will ask you technical, analytical, as well as behavioural questions tag-team style. 1st interview: 2 Directors (Hiring Manager reports to these), 2nd interview - 1 Manager (Hiring Manager), and 3rd interview - 1 Manager and the Head of the Business Unit. Questions were kept fair and each group utilized their 1 hour time slot in its fullest, which did not allow time for me to ask more detailed questions about the company.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Nestlé USA (Washington, DC) in June 2014.

    Interview

    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   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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
