Nestlé USA – Why Work For Us?


Nestlé is…

...the world's leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness company. Our mission of "Good Food, Good Life" is to provide consumers with the best tasting, most nutritious choices in a wide range of food and beverage categories and eating occasions, from morning to night.

For well over a century, our commitment to producing foods that uniquely fulfill people's needs has been the secret ingredient in everything we make. It's the right amount of heartiness in our STOUFFER'S® entrees, and it's what makes our NESTLÉ® Hot Cocoa Mix so satisfying on a cold winter day.

    I have been working at Nestlé USA full-time


    Great company culture, increasing focus on process improvement, fairly flexible, a lot of opportunity for internal growth, high pay compared to other companies.


    As with any large company, sometimes there is a lot of red tape to go through to get things done and some people are set in old, inefficient ways. Company is in the process of moving to DC, so a lot things are up in the air.

    Average Interview


    Fairly simple interview process. Phone screen followed by an in-person interview where you do about 4-6, 30 min interviews each with different people on the team. Interviews were very laid back. They just asked about my background and then asked a couple behavioral questions. You should be good if you just practice common behavioral interview questions.
