Second interview, in-person:

Third interview, via phone: this was split into two 40 min segments, one involving an HR person, which was similar to my first phone interview (same questions even), and a second interview involving a Technical Programmer Developer Engineer.

for the second part, the technical questions:

revolved around specific applications I have used in the past

software/SDLC standards I am familiar with

questions about development tools, RDBMs involving extracting data based on primary keys, how they relate to structuring a request for data in tables.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé (Solon, OH) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Apply online and I received a call from the recruiter in a couple days. Went over the basics of the position as well as background information for myself. Once the baseline qualifications were met and both parties were satisfied a in-person interview was schedule in under two weeks. The in-person interview was done by two people the manager and an office lead. Both people were very friendly and easy going, I was really nervous and they made me feel at ease. Most questions were behavioral in nature and not quizzing you on what you know. The whole process was pretty comfortable and straightforward.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé (Glendale, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Interview 1: Phone interview. HR recruiter called, and essentially reviewed every section on the job description to see if there were any parts that were unclear. The recruiter then went over how the interview process worked, and what i could expect the next interviewers to ask. The interview lasted about 30 minutes.

    Interview 2: Phone interview. This was the "technical" interview with two associates who would potentially be my team mates. The questions focused on my project experience and technical troubleshooting examples. The interview lasted about 30 minutes.

    Interview 3+ many more: Off-site interview. This was a series of 1:1, 2:1, and a panel interview with a presentation the interviewee gives. Questions spanned the usual spectrum. The interviews lasted just over 5 hours.

    Interview Questions

    • Give an example where you used your technical ability to troubleshoot an issue.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Standard phone interview process followed by a couple rounds of interviews regarding fit and industry knowledge. Lots of focus on global awareness of the Nestlé brand and of its competitors. Nothing too difficult and no trick questions that made proceedings too uncomfortable and awkward. Felt very much like they were trying to gauge why I wanted to work with the company and how good a fit I would be.
