    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Springfield, MO).

    Bare bones and no bs. I was told it was physically taxing, but it would be rewarding. I was coached on how to deal with and stay compliant to DOT standards. I was also taught the art of incremental sales.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Dublin, OH).

    Interview

    I applied online through the Nestle website and received an email about a phone interview within 3 days. The phone interview was simple and took about 20 minutes. The two main questions asked were "Define Aseptic Technique" and "Arrange the following words based on importance: Quality, Safety, Deadline." I was told at the end of the phone call that I will be brought on site for an in-person interview. The interview was held about 5 days after (Friday) the phone interview. The questions asked were very team oriented, but easy to answer. Know your resume well because they asked about each work position listed on it. Afterwards, I was given a tour of the facility, lasting about 20 minutes. I was informed of my job offer the following Monday. All in all, the process was quick and professional.
