Associate Marketing Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Nestlé USA.
Interview Details – Hiring process is a bit long in comparison with other companies. They are more of a traditional company so they want to make sure every box is checked. The interview process was first rounds then the brought a group out for the second round interviews. The second round had three 1-hour interviews back to back. They didn't call to reject but rather sent a mass email
Interview Question – The questions are basic behavioral questions, "tell me about a time when...". As with any interview, be prepared to answer why you are interested in Nestle and why they would be a good fit for you. None of the questions were unexpected. View Answer
Finance & Accounting Interview Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Nestlé USA in February 2014.
Interview Details – There were three rounds of interviews with the questions being almost exclusively behavioral-based questions with one technical question (what's FCF for example, so a softball one). There was a small presentation on safety procedures (common sense and you're fine, you go through nothing dangerous) and they paid for the trip and meals. Overall everyone was as they call it "Nestle Nice," with the exception of one individual.
Interview Question – One uncomfortable and worrying incident that occurred was when one HR employee mentioned she liked Glendale, California, but had a long pause and stated she worried about the "demographic changes" to the city. She further mentioned that she was also concerned about the changing population of the state over the past couple of decades. As a minority, I'm sensitive towards microaggressions that may occur even when unintentional. Answer Question
