    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Columbia, SC) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I went to a job fair and was scheduled for a next day interview on campus. While they were extremely pleasant and positive during the career fair, I found the person I interviewed with to be off putting. He asked mostly behavioral questions, some being extremely specific. The interview lasted 30 minutes. They interviewed about 20 other candidates that day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Minneapolis, MN) in August 2015.

    Interview

    A month after applying I received an email asking me to interview. I had a phone interview with HR. This interview went well, the HR person told me so and immediately told me when the next manager would be available. A week later I had an in person interview with a manager which also went well. There would have been at least one more interview, but an internal candidate was hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nestlé USA in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process went great. I interviewed with three different individuals. Then I received a call and an offer letter with a start date. When it was time to start, the company started acting very shady. They told me they were still waiting for background check stuff. Then, they told me they wouldn't be hiring me, but would not give me a reason. I'm working with the union to file am EEO complaint on behalf of me being a woman. I know they are trying to keep women off the floor there and it's just ridiculous.
