    I worked at Nestlé full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really nice people, strong brands, strong ethics and values; they really do want to do what's right for the employee and the customer; average pay and benefits; good ability for promotions and global opportunities, short & long term; half day Fridays in the summer, company store

    Cons

    Slow to actually effect change; many of the newly appointed senior leaders are not people-people and it is having a detrimental effect on the culture; people are overworked and under appreciated

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro managing; show that you truly care about your people; bring back fun in the workplace; agree on a plan and work the plan

    Packaging Operator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Anderson, IN
    Anonymous Employee in Anderson, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Nestlé.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for several positions. They emailed back after a month or so to schedule taking a test for the packaging operator position. I went a week later to take a test at a local college computer lab with 20 or so others. The test took around 3 hours, it was all on a computer and covered lots of situational questions, math questions, tool and measurement questions, etc. A week later I received yet another email asking if I would like to be interviewed for the job, which I again schedule for the next week. They interviewed 5 people at a time in a group setting, at a different college this time, we all sat at a table, had a worksheet to answer situational questions and discuss it amongst the group. After we were finished with this which probably took around 30 min., we each individually were interviewed by a supervisor and then an HR person. I felt the interview went very well, they had let me know they would email me the next week to let me know if I got the job. However, they did not email me back for an entire month and I did not get the position.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were very difficult, it was a very laid back interview despite it being a very long process.   Answer Question
