    Application Details

    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. After a phone interview I was granted a day long interview, rapid succession meetings with several members of the dept. I believe they hired someone (not me) from that round of interviews

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview Details

    Talked to Nestle at my campus career fair, and applied online. Got an email a few days later that I was selected, and then I attended an information session. First round was an on campus interview. Second round was a two part interview; field shadow and sit down interview. The field shadow was 3 hours with a current sales rep, in which she said I was a perfect fit. The second part was a 1:1 interview. The third round would of been an interview at the headquarters in Glendale. Found out pretty quick that I was not selected.
