    Interview

    This company is bate and switch. Offers you a manager position, then tries to throw in in an entry-level position. I think once, I wasn't buying it they ended the interview. Never will I work for this company. All bad. Door to door salesman. That's what they want. Boo.

    Nestle Field Operations Leadership Program Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    This was for the NDIC program geared around their frozen pizza and Ice cream products. There was an initial interview over the phone with and HR woman who outlined the job and then asked you a couple easy questions to make sure you weren't a slug, and could pass on to the next round. That was another phone call with a different regional sales manager, this was more technical than the first one and was largely behavioral questions. When you make it past this one the next step is to do a shadowing day with a the nearest District Sales Leader, which consisted of about 2.5 hours of conversation geared around understanding the job and asking questions, the more questions you ask the better. Then we went to a local store so that I could see what he would do on a daily basis. Afterwards he took me out to lunch and asked me behavioral interview questions. The next day there was a phone call with someone from HR that was geared around what you got out of that experience. Pretty easy.

    Then they fly you out to LA to their head quarters and you go to a meet and greet with tons of Nestle higher ups, and you mingle, and try your best to narrow in on the people that are most applicable to your program. This is followed by a dinner, where they talk about how great Nestle is. The next day you interview with three different people for 30 minutes a piece, take a tour of the building and then you are done. Interestingly enough the questions that day were all very easy. I talked with other candidates and they all agreed with that. Nothing to difficult. Thought I crushed it, but I didnt get it after all that, so I guess it shows you what I know

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Glendale Heights, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The process was extremely cumbersome. I had 4 phone interviews and interviewed with 5 people in person. Nothing but positive feedback, but after 10 weeks and no concrete direction on my candidacy I had to move on. Too, bad. Seemed like a good fit.
