The process took 2 months - interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive in October 2009.

Interview Details – I met with recruiters on campus first. After passing through that round I went in for a round of in-person interviews with a couple managers and members of the division I would join. Everyone I spoke with was very professional and cordial. Questions were primarily behavioral in nature.

Interview Question – Explain a time when you applied your understanding of HR policies to deliver results for your team?   Answer Question
