    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Oakland, CA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed with Nestle about a month ago. Had an excellent experience from the first contact through the last. I felt that they respected me as a candidate, which is different from other companies I've interviewed with recently. I did get the impression that they preferred a local candidate.

    Seemed like an excellent culture, very NorCal. Nestle is a company that I would gladly interview with again.

    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Glendale, CA).

    Interview

    Good process. Great people. No surprises. Made to feel welcome. Fairly fast - just a few weeks. Met with 5 people. Various levels of management. Taken to lunch as well. Important for them to see the real person (in a relaxed setting) versus just during a formal interview. Important to have good questions for them that shows you have researched the company or specific business opportunity. Make sure you follow up with a thank you note or email. The people/ relationship skills are highly valued. One of the best interview processes I have ever gone though.

    Interview Questions

    • Common question of what is your most important development area.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Fair negotiation. Very satisfied.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Solon, OH).

    Interview

    Hiring process is a bit long in comparison with other companies. They are more of a traditional company so they want to make sure every box is checked. The interview process was first rounds then the brought a group out for the second round interviews. The second round had three 1-hour interviews back to back. They didn't call to reject but rather sent a mass email

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are basic behavioral questions, "tell me about a time when...". As with any interview, be prepared to answer why you are interested in Nestle and why they would be a good fit for you. None of the questions were unexpected.   1 Answer

    Client Services Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Dublin, OH) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I first came upon this position through Volt Resources (temp agency). This was a two step interview. The first interview was through the temp agency and the second was with a supervisor at the Nestle facility. There was about a week break between the two interviews. After a typical interview (tell us about yourself, your background, etc), I was lead on a tour of the area in which I may be working. Nothing on the tour was in depth, just an outside look of each of the rooms. After the tour, we went back to the original office. The interviewer asked if I had any questions. He then asked my work availability. I received a call the next day with the job offer.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no out of the ordinary questions. Just the typical customer service type questions: Tell us a time in which you dealt with an upset customer, how would you tell a customer something you know they don't want to hear, etc.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was absolutely no negotiation. It was a "take it or leave it" situation.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Anderson, IN) in June 2010.

    Interview

    You recieve a email if they like your application to go take a test at a 3rd party site. It is on the computer and it covers evrything from basic math to industrial knowledge to psychological/behavioral questions. If you pass this test you will be called for a interview. The interview is a 3 part process, usually 2 individual and 1 group. If you make a good impression in the interview process, you are put into the hiring pool and will be called as they have openings. I believe you only stay in the pool for 1 year.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask a lot of behavioral questions, ie. Give a example of a boss/employee you had a problem with? What was the outcome? What did you learn/gain? Just remember to turn everything into a positive experience.   Answer Question
