Retail Sales Representative Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé USA.

    Interview

    Was a fairly quick process to begin. Had a phone interview and was asked to do a face to face just 2 days after. The 2 on 1 was very good and both interviewers were great. After 2 weeks they wanted me to do a ride along with an existing rep. After that, I spoke with one of my interviewers and she said they would contact me within a week with a final decision. Three weeks later after multiple phone calls, I finally got a decision.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Farmington, NM) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and within 2 days I heard a response. An interview was set up several days later, and I had a 30 minute conversation about my skills and background with an HR woman. Unfortunately, I was told that I had to relocate to their district (which is only 7 miles away from my residence). I declined, and the interview was over.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé USA in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen, day in the field shadowing someone who is already in the position, Face to Face with 2 regional managers. Phone screen last around 30 minutes getting to know about previous experiences and if you can communicate effectively. Day in the field is going with someone who is already in the position. You don't have to help but it's good to show initiative and ask questions to the person you are with as they will be reporting back to the person who will be interviewing you. That lasted about 3-4 hours if you want to stay that long. The face to face interview lasted about 45 minutes. Received an offer about a week after the face to face interview. Overall a good interview experience. It does take some a while to get through the whole process as they want to make sure you are a good fit for them and they are are a good fit for you.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé USA (Miami, FL) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Very smooth interview, first a phone call with human resources which was very basic interview questions, then an interview with direct manager in person. This was a formal interview and had general interview questions. The part i found the toughest were the business math questions. They seem to be difficult to answer on the spot. Then finally a phone interview with the director for your position and that was fairly simple, just to get to know you better and honestly I felt like they were just seeing if you fit with the company.
