    Operations Rotational Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Luis Obispo, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Nestlé (San Luis Obispo, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred by upper HR that I met through a company tour. Interviewer was on time with the schedule we agreed on. There were some complications with graduation date (as I am a near graduating student) before the interview began. The vibe that I got was very corporate, it seemed like the interviewer wanted to quickly get the questions completed within a given time frame. That made me feel somewhat like "just another resume," which is true given no other background information. I didn't feel like the interviewer even had an interest in getting to know more about what I did or have me explain more when I asked. The interviewer told me to apply online through their website, but I chose not to from the feeling that I got from the interview.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé.

    Interview

    The process was easy, just need to be a safe driver, clean record is best to get hired quicker. Started off with a phone interview then an in person interview. Bosses are very nice and understanding if you have school/family matters to attend to.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Phone interview, then in-person interview with three managers.
    The one on one was with each manager.
    They all asked basically the same questions.
    Very standard, average interview process in summary.
    Not very inspiring, it took a long time as well and a lot of waiting.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé (Plymouth, MI) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interviewer was and arrogant man who thought he was superior to every one. 2 hours don't waste your time. The arrogance came before we even meet when he had and assistant call and set it up. What a joke.

    Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé.

    Interview

    This process seems a bit backwards. You complete a phone screen, the recruiter then sends you a follow up email saying how great it was to speak with you and provides some more in depth information about benefits, etc. (which to clarify, I did not specifically request), and then a day later you get rejected. What is the point of sending candidates the extra Benefits info if you aren't going to move them forward? Left me scratching my head and a bit upset because I thought it was a good indicator I'd be moving forward. It's almost like "Look at all these great things that you can't have!". A bit strange, haha.

    I also feel like I did not at all have the chance to talk about why I'd be qualified for the role, or to discuss further my experiences and accolades. I left the process feeling like they didn't know anything about me and just rejected me on a whim for a position that is almost a carbon copy of what I do now (so I know it can't have been experience related). None of it made sense, but, what can you do! There must have been a reason they didn't think I was a fit, which is good for me too because I'd hate to get into a role that wouldn't work out in the long run, but the process was just a bit weird. Something maybe to look into! :-)
