Nestle is the largest food and drink company in the world, headquartered in Switzerland. Nestle prides itself on nurturing innovation across the 2000 brands that make up its portfolio, and this starts with the Nestle Academy, where all apprentices and graduates begin their Nestle career.

Strengths-based video interview
Candidates who are successful in the online tests will then be invited to the first interview section of the Nestle Academy application process. This interview will not be in person but done via computer and webcam, so it is important you have somewhere quiet and uninterrupted to carry out the interview.
The interview is automated, and you will be asked questions either visually on screen or by watching a recording. Then you will have a timed section to record your answer to the camera. You will only have one chance to record your response for each question.
This is your chance to build a better picture of your skills and strengths, as well as your passion for working at Nestle. It’s an opportunity to expand on the answers that you gave during your online application.
Research Nestle’s values, mission and vision, and remember that in interviews like this you will want to demonstrate your own competencies. It can be helpful to use the STAR technique and for each question set out the Situation, Task, Action and Result, which allow you to frame each answer.
The final stage in the Nestle Academy recruitment process is to attend an assessment centre to carry out a series of exercises designed to showcase your skills.
Depending on timing, situation and location this may be held virtually via your webcam or at one of the Nestle sites. It will depend on the role for which you have applied as to whether it is a full or half day.
You should be prepared to be asked to take part in one or all of the following:
Group exercises are tricky to get right, since you’ll need to work collaboratively as part of a team to achieve a solution to a brief. At the same time you want to stand out as a leader who can persuade the team to either agree with your solution, or to stand by your own views if you do not agree with the rest of the group.
Following on from your application form and video interview you should also be expected to answer strength-based and motivational questions, where you’ll want to demonstrate your enthusiasm and passion for working at Nestle, along with your skills and strengths. Again you’ll want to prepare fully in advance for this, using the STAR system outlined above.
The presentation element is usually briefed in advance to allow you to prepare, and will include technical knowledge as well as an assessment of your presentation skills, structure and style.
You will want to practise this in advance, so you are comfortable with the material you have prepared and have considered in advance questions you may be asked afterwards.

Interface and chart presentation
The interface was very simple and easy to navigate. It was very user friendly. I did not like how the chart required me to tap before I see the values. It makes referencing it while making your calculation very difficult.

The questions are all based on word problem and numerical strength, percentage and average, division and addition and subtraction.

Efficient use of time
I must learn to answer the questions I can and skip or select the most likely answer for the ones I have no idea about to save time

I didn't expect all quantitive tasks, I thought that it was going to be some verbal ones too. My bad.

The questions are brain straining
I like the fact that the questions are from different parts of the world, but I dislike the opinion of the sensor statistics on the options, they're too specific.

Table information not clear
Some values were difficult to work with. Could not tell whether they were percentages or whole numbers.

It is most important to know how to manage the time when working under pressure.
I personally think that the questions presented are quite challenging because of the time limit but at the same time, it makes my brain think more accurately.

A bit confusing without a formula
There is no given formulation. And 1 minute per number is difficult to find out the answer without a formula.

First time doing this test. Overall I'm satisfied but some information given in the questions is not clear (e.g., the value, is it in percentage or thousands?)

Category of student
I was quite surprised as I'm a student from medical background and questions asked here are totally out of reach for a pharma student. It would be better if you frame questions according to the stream of the students.
