    Interview

    Fairly simple interview process. Phone screen followed by an in-person interview where you do about 4-6, 30 min interviews each with different people on the team. Interviews were very laid back. They just asked about my background and then asked a couple behavioral questions. You should be good if you just practice common behavioral interview questions.

    • Behavioral Interview questions. Questions such as "tell me about a time when..."   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview

    I had a phone call with a recruiter and then interviewed in person a few weeks later. I talked to about 5 different people for a total of 5 hours. They all pretty much asked the same behavioral questions to me. It is all behavioral, not really any talking besides asking and answering questions. It was hard to come up with many different examples of the same question .

    Legislative Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Arlington, VA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had two phone screeners, one with an HR member and one with the hiring manager, which were several weeks apart. I was then asked to come in for a series of in-person interviews, where I met with four different people from the team. They used a combination of behavioral-based interview questions as well as more informal, conversational questions. Everyone I met with was very positive, and told me that I had a very strong series of interviews. I enjoyed meeting with them, and they told me that they would be following up with me early the next week regarding the position.

    I sent two check-in emails and received no response until nearly four weeks after the in-person interview, when they told me they were offering the position to an internal hire instead.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Solon, OH) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I did an initial phone screen with the recruiter, a phone interview with a finance manager, and then a final 2 day interview in the Solon, OH location (new HQ in VA have not been fully set up yet). All expenses for this were paid for by Nestle. They brought in around 50 students, and I heard that they offered it to around 20. They also flew in finance managers and trainees from across the country to mix and mingle with as well as conduct interviews. It was an amazing experience and helped you to learn about what the program is really like. Almost all questions during this round is behavioral. You had 3 back to back behavioral interviews with 2 interviewers in each. Only question that wasn't behavioral was why I wanted to work with Nestle. They will ask follow-up questions to your answers so you need to be really prepared to explain yourself and be honest.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview

    Very easy phone screen, more like a check in the box. I was almost immediately contacted to setup travel arrangements for the onsite interview which was a very responsive and efficient process.

    The interviews lasted three hours total, back to back. Met with the head of safety, what would be my coworkers in the supervisory role I applied to, the manager I would work for and the GM. Everyone was very professional and polite.

    All interviewers utilized standard questions on a form Nestle requires them to use. Lots of note taking.
