Territory Manager Interview

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Nestlé Purina (Saint Louis, MO).

Interview

I had a phone interview which was very casual and enjoyable. They called me the same day to ask for a 2nd interview. The 2nd interview was 3 hours. Each hour with a different manager. Two of the interviews were video interviews and one was on the phone. Everyone I spoke with was very down to earth and easy to talk to. They did ask a lot of situational questions, so I recommend being prepared with many different scenarios.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé Purina (Benicia, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was thorough and efficient. A recruiter reached out to me initially on LinkedIn for a phone conversation. I was then scheduled for a phone interview with another HR member, and another phone interview followed as well. I was then passed on for a final 3 person interview on a FaceTime like app. It was 3 separate interviews one after another with one hour time slots. They ask situational questions and you shouldn't give the same answer twice. All in all, it was the best interview process I've ever been apart of, and the the pleasant experience I had with the HR department is a big reason I accepted this offer, and I had 3 other offers. I think I spoke with 5 different people from their HR department and they were all on the same page which signaled to me they had their act together.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nestlé Purina (Dallas, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email by a recruiter to set up a phone interview after applying online. The first part of the interview consisted mostly of reviewing my resume, applicable skills and company knowledge. The second part involved 3 behavioral questions. These are difficult to prepare for, but they were all closely related to the ones you will find posted on Glassdoor.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nestlé Purina (Saint Louis, MO) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The phone interview was tough... All behavioral based. It was a long process for me between the phone interview and the actual in-person interview. The HR department is great, I cannot say enough nice things. The travel was arranged and everything was set up very well for the in-person interview. Imagine my dissapointment when none of the territories I applied for were open, I felt lied too and basically had my time wasted. The interview itself was completely unorganized, the interviewers were nice but one of them was less than professional, aka not very organized and just left a bad taste in my mouth about the company in general. Three separate interviews, each had 4 behavioral based questions. Several questions overlapped, we were told to give different examples for each question and for each interviewer if possible.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé Purina in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online. Received an email a few weeks later to set up a phone interview. About two weeks after the phone interview I was contacted to fly out to HQ for three one hour long interviews. A little over a week later I received a call and was offered the job.

    They each ask similar behaviorial based questions (look up STAR method). Make sure you plan ahead and have lots of stories and examples of previous experience ready.

    Everyone was very friendly throughout the entire process. Just be confident and prepared and know why you want the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of behavioral questions. Tell me about a time when you had to suggest an unpopular idea that would benefit the company. Tell me about a time when you were innovative. Tell me a time when you had to make a decision in a short amount of time when you didn't have all the information you needed.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Nestlé Purina (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and a couple weeks later I received an email asking for availability for a phone interview. About a week or so later I had the phone interview. HR rep was professional told me a little about the position, asked me to walk me through my resume and then asked me 2 behavioral questions with follow up questions. The territory I originally applied to was unavailable, but that came up about 5 minutes into the interview. I was fine with that, though, because they had a territory I was willing to relocate to, and they do pay for relocation.

    A few weeks later, I heard back from the HR rep saying I was selected for an in-person interview. She once again told me about the territory possibilities, and told me to research behavioral interviews. She set up the in-person interview for a month later.

    I flew out to HQ in St. Louis where I had 3 interviews, all with 4 behavioral based interview questions. If you have relevant experience, giving a different example/story for each should be fairly easy. Just smile, be confident, and show that you'll be a great fit for the company and that you really want to work for them.

    The pros are that the interviews are not difficult, they pay for your traveling expenses for the in person interview, the interviewers were all nice, professional, and made the interview process a stress-free one.

    The cons are that the territory you applied to may not be available and the entire interview process can take a couple months. For me, this wasn't an issue, but I can see how it can be for others.

    Overall, I'd say it was a great interview experience.
