    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Unilever in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on their website back in February for several positions. Several days later I received some emails rejecting some of the positions I applied. Then in mid April I received an email from HR asking for a phone screen. I scheduled for the next Monday. The interview was mostly behavioral. She asked me why I applied and went through my resume, mainly my projects. The interview was quite short.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview

    Typical on campus interview. We went over my resume and was asked about leadership... "tell me about a time", etc. A lot of behavioral questions. Very few questions about the company and the actual position. One question was technical, asking about what I did to understand marketing and how I would contribute, but other than that it was all about leadership and examples of taking initiative.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview

    Standard good interview with the hiring manager, experiences, skills, etc. The problem was when HR called me a week after and told me to call them back, they did not pick up the phone. So I was waiting for hours with false hope only for them to tell me I didn't get it. Then they called a week later to tell me again I didn't get it... an email would be just fine, please.

    Interview

    After having completed an online application full of documents and details, I have been contacted the day after by a HR employee asking to set a phone interview for the day after. Almost one hour of phone interview to assess some personal skills and to ask me situational questions and "which was a situation where you have proved that..." They told me that I could write them for any kind of questions also after the interview, and that the results would be available in 3 weeks

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
