    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Oakland, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    I was interviewed during a phone screen. Then I had to fill out an on-line application. Then I spent the greater part of a day interviewing, one on one with 4 different people. I interviewed with the HR manager, the direct supervisor, someone in another department and a person who had the same position I was interview for. 85 % of the questions were asking me to give examples or situational scenarios.

    Human Resources Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oakland, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Oakland, CA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    very disorganized. I had to wait more than 15 minutes and then when I finally got to my interviewer I was made to wait while she took a phone call. I met with three people and two of them were disinterested and rude. It was not a good representation of a well established company with an otherwise great reputation.

    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Oakland, CA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed with Nestle about a month ago. Had an excellent experience from the first contact through the last. I felt that they respected me as a candidate, which is different from other companies I've interviewed with recently. I did get the impression that they preferred a local candidate.

    Seemed like an excellent culture, very NorCal. Nestle is a company that I would gladly interview with again.

    Interview Questions

    • I hadn't thought about this question beforehand "Tell me about a time when you found an error in a team member's work. How did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Finance Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Oakland, CA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed with Hiring Manager 1 - 1:1
    2 supervisors together 2:1
    2 employees 2:1
    Second Manager - 1:1

    The interview was typical interview questions you find on the internet. I noticed the people I interviewed with, except the Hiring Manager were inexperienced at interviewing and seemed just as nervous as I was. Then I realized later there is no organization and they pick random people to do interviews which is not good because you get some terrible employees that probably should have been fired years ago now.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your weakness? Give me an example of teamwork? Influence skills?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was a lateral position so didn't negotiate
