Nestlé is the leading Nutrition, Health and, Wellness Company in the world. It has factories in 85 countries and sales in 189 countries around the globe with over 330,000 employees. Nestlé is considered a rewarding work place with lots of opportunities to advance your career and therefore many people apply for positions with the firm. As an applicant, you will have to go through the Nestlé recruitment process, which includes an online application, a situational strengths test, online aptitude testing, a telephone interview, an assessment centre and a final interview. With such a tough competition for spots, using every resource available to help you prepare for the Nestlé recruitment process puts you at a great advantage.
The Nestlé Graduate Scheme is a great opportunity for newly qualified graduates with career path opportunities that range from marketing to engineering and finance, as well as numerous other fields. Your overall objective as a new graduate applying for a position with the firm is to fully understand the core workings of the multi-national Nutrition and Wellness Company that is Nestlé. As this is a fabulous opportunity for any new graduate, the competition for such a prestigious position is high. The highly structured recruitment process is rigorous and features the following steps.
The Nestlé Application Form is the first stage and it is your opportunity to make the best first impression. The firm gets thousands of applications every year so yours really needs to stand out in order to get noticed. Make sure you include your relevant experience and highlight any skills you have that match the requirements for the position and that you include a cover letter that is Nestlé specific.
The Nestlé Situational Strengths Test, also known as Situational Judgement Test (SJT), is the first test that you will be presented with should your application be successful.
The purpose of the SJT is to test your reactions and approaches to real life scenarios; often they will be real scenarios that you may be faced with during your work at Nestlé. You can improve your score on this kind of test by familiarizing yourself with the types of questions and possible scenarios. Our full Nestlé pack offers SJT practice tests and guides to help you prepare for the real thing.
After successfully passing the situational judgement test, you will then be asked to complete the Nestlé online numerical reasoning test. If you have applied for an engineering position, you will also need to complete a logical reasoning test.
These tests are supplied by Saville Consulting company. By practicing these tests with JobTestPrep’s Nestlé pack, you can become better prepared for this stage of the recruitment process. Practicing these tests is not only recommended but necessary as you are required to use different skills than you have had to in the past in order to succeed. In fact, once you fully understand the logic behind these tests, your ability to outperform other candidates will be there for all to see. If you successfully complete these online tests, you will move on to the next stage of the application process, the phone interview.
After successfully passing the online tests, the next stage is the Nestlé Telephone Interview. In this interview, you will be asked questions that test and identify your strengths and weaknesses in more detail. You should also expect some more technical questions that test your knowledge about the company and the role you have applied for. Nestlé wants to know if you have got the passion for the role so make sure you have done your research on the company.
By successfully getting through all the above stages, Nestlé will invite you to take part in their Assessment Centre. The Nestlé Assessment Centre is a full day of activities in which you can really show the assessors that you have what it takes to join their team. You will have to take part in a number of different exercises:
The final part of the application process is an interview with a member of the Senior Leadership Team from the department that you applied to. This interview will only happen if you were successful during the Nestlé Assessment Centre. This is the final step before a job offer can be made to successful candidates.
