    Anonymous Employee in Manila, Manila (Philippines)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Unilever in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer is given a standardized set of question by the Human Resource Managers for the first stage of interviews. The interview questions are listed for the interviewer and they will ask you almost all the question in the list. They require you to give specific examples for you achievements. They also expect you to say something about yourself that is not stated in your resume. Its one of the most challenging interview process that I have undergone.

    Anonymous Employee in Rotterdam (Netherlands)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Unilever in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Round 1: CV selection, motivation questions online, online assessment tests
    Round 2: 1-hour competence interview
    Round 3: Assessment day (consisting of cases, group discussion and presentation)

    Interview questions were related to Unilever's standards of leadership. Be prepared to have multiple examples for each of these competences (use STAR). You are scored on each of the standards of leadership.

    The assessment day is very intense. You are asked to prepare a 20-minute presentation in advance. On the day you will have 2 cases, for which you have an hour to prepare a presentation based on provided information (reports, e-mails, data etc.) and subsequently hold a 10 minute presentation assessed by a senior manager, followed by 10 minutes of questions. Also part of this day are a group discussion (you have about 30 minutes to prepare for this) and the presentation you have prepared in advance (followed by 10 minutes of questions). You are assessed by 3 senior managers. After your first case they will provide you with feedback, use this in your second case (which will be harder than the first). After the 4 assignments you will receive a call the very same evening with the outcome.

    Interview Questions
    • E.g. recall a situation in which you had to ask for help, recall a situation in which you had to convince others of your point, recall a situation in which you had to motivate others...etc.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Unilever in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got called by a HR after 1 week of application submission. She scheduled 2 face to face interviews and 2 phone interviews with the managers/director. I had a good experience interviewing with the managers. They were all very friendly and easy to talk to. And the HR was very organized and efficient in the way of scheduling the all interviews and responsive to all my emails. However, at the end, they told me they decided to pursue an internal candidate.

    Interview Details

    The interview was about 30 minutes long and was mainly behavioral. I was also asked to critique a few advertisements. The interviewer was very nice, but it seemed like they really wanted succinct and direct answers since the interview was so short. I did not receive an offer from them.
