Supply Chain Co-Op Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Englewood Cliffs, NJ
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood Cliffs, NJ
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Unilever in September 2012.

Interview Details

Unilever came to my university's career fair in Spring of 2012. I talked to a representative about the opportunities that existed in supply chain. After a few minutes, she asked for my availability for a next day interview, and it was immediately scheduled. I showed up to the on-campus interview the next day, and was placed in front of 2 interviewers for an hour long interview process. They started with behavioral questions and one situational question. At the end, they asked for a preference in location, which depends on your job specifications. The next day, I received a phone call with a verball offer, and then a few days later, an email with more details.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Unilever in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Got the interview via an oncampus career fair. Only 1 round of interviews, was the day after I talked to them at their booth, and was on-campus. It is behavioral based, so brainstorm key situations you have been in. Googling the STAR methodology and questions to prep will help you for the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Unfortunately, I don't remember the questions as the interview was several years ago, but they were pretty standard.

      A question you can almost always expect to have that is challenging is "Tell me about a situation in which you had to deal with a difficult teammate."

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Unilever in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very quick & easy way to get a position, either in the SCMP or co-op program, is to talk to recruiters at Career Fairs. Often times they do interviews for these positions the very next day. Interviews are usually with one or 2 people, and are fairly standard interviews.

    They extended an offer and I had a couple weeks to decide if I wanted to accept or not.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Unilever in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The phone interview was very simple.. Behavior based and the interviewer asked questions about Unilever such as how familiar are you with Unilever... It was more or less them explaining to me what Unilever is all about.. After that was done, he asked a couple of behavior questions such as, what would you do if you were the leader of an incompetent team.

    • What are some of the reasons why our product is not on the shelf at a store?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation allowed.. Keep your options open.. don't accept offers right away. When you're a co-op unilever pays about 16-18 per hour depending on your seniority level. Even though they do pay per hour, think of it as a a salary position. More than likely, you will work more than 40 hours a week and you will not get paid for more than 37.5 hours a week.

    Overall it's a great learning experience.
