    Negative Experience

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Danville, VA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Math and logic testing, Hair drug test, phone interview, panel interview using STAR format, pre-orientation (4 hours unpaid), 3 day orientation. The interview process was too intense for a general laborer position. I felt like I was applying for management.

    Nestle Field Operations Leadership Program Interview

    Positive Experience
    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

    A good experience overall. They took good care of us from the minute we landed to our ride back to the airport. Everyone was friendly. Culture definitely resonated that of a very large corporation.

    Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Las Cruces, NM) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was also being used as a coaching opportunity for relatively new engineers (1 - 2 years with Nestle). They had a rote script and after a few questions it became obvious that they were attempting to rank behaviors and experience on specific scales. The first few questions were rephrased until an answer that demonstrated ability/non-ability in what ever metric they had remaining to assess on their sheet.

    Nestle requires managers to ask many Behavioral questions. Also, They typically ask questions specific to the programs or work you would be doing. For example, "What excel formula would you use for....", or "What recommendation would you make if your analysis work looked like......".

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Columbia, SC).

    Interview

    Way too easy. Asked a bunch of normal interview questions. If you ask me for a manager position they should have asked some harder questions. I felt like the questions were too babyish.
