    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Nestlé (London, ON) in March-2014.

    Interview

    Applied online, was called in for an initial interview that was actually quite professional and enjoyable - probably cause HR was present in the room My second interview was a GONG show - being asked questions like "is your garage at home dirty or organized" or "when you go to the bar do you go alone and make friends or go with your friends and don't talk to anyone new" is straight out of the 1960's Then the second half of the actual interview was two of the three individuals telling me what they didn't like about my answers and then flat out told me they didn't like me or think what I had what it took to work there. The third person in the room was actually day dreaming and looking off into space for most of the 1.0 hour show.

    At Nestle you are responsible for : a) Parking (you don't get parking in the Nestle building unless you have over 10 years of service. New employees have to park in the Sheppard Center - across the street) b) If you stay in the East or West end of the city the 401 is busy so you end up taking 407 to get to work on time - the company will not reimburse c) Company will not provide cell phones unless you are in sales - however you are expected to respond to emails even if you are on the road - hence you need a cell phone at your expense Know the above when you negotiate

    Interview

    the interview process is pretty basic for a sales rep. They'll just put you in a bunch of different scenarios to see how you react. I think I had 3 different interviews with 3 different managers. They all asked different questions. All questions are really just to see what kind of character you have and if you're able to handle the pressure of being out there on your own.
