Consumer Services Analyst Interview

Consumer Services Analyst

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Nestlé USA in April 2009.

Interview Details – All day interview--you'll meet with 5-7 key players. Expect heavy behavioral interview questions, unless you get someone cool. They are often looking for a good fit culturally just as much as experience and education. You better have your MBA at Nestle! They value MBA over skills and experience.

Interview Question – Have you ever had a conflict with someone and how do you deal with it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Didn't negotiate, but resources these day say you can always negotiate. I'd recommend getting the highest salary you can because it'll inch along in the years to come. Raises were typically only 2-3% per year

Operations Management Trainee Interview

Operations Management Trainee

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nestlé USA.

Interview Details – Uploaded my resume to my schools career portal. I received a call 1 week later. I first did a 15 minute phone interview. It was mainly for them to gauge how I am as an individual and my personality. They asked about my resume and extra curricular activities. I waited 1 week to hear from them to schedule a 2nd 30 minute interview with an Operations Management Trainee. The interviews was direct and straight to the point. They want you to use the CAR method when answering questions. I did not make it to the final round, but I would have had to fly out to California for a face to face interview.

Interview Question – What was the hardest class that you have ever had to take and why?
What was the hardest project you have had in a class and why?
