    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Got an interview through campus recruiting. Process involved an interview at my school, then a second round interview in Chicago. I turned down the second round interview as they were not flexible about dates for flying out to Chicago and I had exams that I could not miss during the dates they gave me.

    Multiple interviews, some with teams of interviewers. Total of 4 interviews for me. Most were scheduled for the same day, with a short break in between.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    the interview process is pretty basic for a sales rep. They'll just put you in a bunch of different scenarios to see how you react. I think I had 3 different interviews with 3 different managers. They all asked different questions. All questions are really just to see what kind of character you have and if you're able to handle the pressure of being out there on your own.

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nestlé (Atlanta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted online application, which included salary requirements. Was contacted two days later for phone screening. Basic questions about previous experience. Recruiter said no salary information is available. I was concerned, as I did not want to drive an hour to an interview without having an idea of salary range. She stated "there is probably room for negotiation". Upon meeting hiring manager, I was advised position pays $12.25 and hour. Interview lasted 3 minutes..............

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nestlé (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was not bad. A lot of questions pertaining to the work you would be doing and your previous background. Diversity of interviewers was good. Compensation for the interview being out of town would have been better.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé (Solon, OH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First was a email to state they are interested. Next i received a call asking general recruiter questions. I received another email asking about interview times. The interview i thought went great. Have yet to receive a call two weeks later. I am hopeful that since it is a big company things move slowly. I will be calling them to close off this process within the next week if I do not hear back.

    Sales Utility Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cleveland, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nestlé (Cleveland, OH) in May 2015.

    Interview

    During the interview process it was two men there, one explaining the job and asking if you could describe the position and the other gentleman was basically asking situational questions...some of which were the same from the phone interview. It was a brief overall process and they asked me if I had any questions for them. Afterwards I received a call 2 days later saying I was the candidate they chose. Laid back atmosphere but make sure you research the company and the position your trying to apply for.
