    I applied online. I interviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview

    It was extensive and I had to interview with several people.
    It took several months but eventually they got back to me. It's a great job with many perks (company car, flex hours, travel) and they do a good job telling you the benefits.

    Manager Market Intelligence Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Solon, OH
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Solon, OH) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Here's my summary of the process: "Check the box", uncoordinated and, at times, condescending. There are some capable, nice employees caught up in Nestle's dysfunctional hiring process.

    It occurred to me that the recruiting process was broken when I received their survey about how I felt about the recruiting process...after only my second screening interview with recruiters. When I questioned this, they said, "Oh, that was a mistake. You're supposed to get our survey much later in the process." I never saw the survey again.

    I suspect this is the reason why...

    My recruiter (not the hiring manager), who was based in California, was an impediment, at best, and a negative influence, at worst, throughout my interview process. I progressed quickly to an offer, but the recruiter's pressure tactics and insults really raised my doubts about Nestle's culture and working conditions.

    Four 30 minute interviews with future colleagues (who were nice) didn't provide sufficient time for me to ask questions. I did explain that I had just a few important questions but the offer letter came...and then expired...before Nestle even tried to answer my questions.

    Really unfortunate.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you faced ambiguity.   Answer Question
    • How did you handle a situation where your boss made a decision you didn't agree with?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about the process you led to make XYZ happen.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I felt that Nestle's deliberately ignoring my questions raised a red flag. Other negatives during the interview process raised doubts about how people are treated at Nestle.

    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.
