    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Unilever (Ann Arbor, MI) in September 2010.

    Interview

    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."

    Negotiation

    Negotiated to have more time to decide. The initlal decision period was 1-2 weeks, during which I still had more interviews lined up and wasn't comfortable making a decision.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Unilever (Englewood, NJ) in February 2012.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Unilever in December 2012.

    Interview

    I was invited to a conference hosted by Unilever for a student organization which I was a part of. I handed my resume and a business card during a network event there. About two weeks later a recruiter called to schedule an interview. I went through a 45 minute phone interview with a director and an analyst later that week. Was then called in to the local office for a 60 minute interview with the plant manager and the logistics manager as the position involved a local plant rotation. I was given an offer about two weeks later.

    Interview Questions

    • Was given a business case which involved arranging for cost effective transportation options for essential finished goods from one part of the supply chain to another.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate because the benefits (housing stipend) and base was within my expectations.
