    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Danone in January 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring process was rather simple. First, HR interview, then an interview with who became my boss. The whole process took about a month. I got hired as an outsourced employee and I was supposed to be on trial for one year. After that, I got "promoted" into an internal employee.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really. Just specific but very basic questions about market research and motivation to work in market research   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no much negotiation. Danone is not known for being able to negotiate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Danone (Beirut (Lebanon)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through the company website and was sent an online aptitude test once the application deadline had passed. Around ten days later I received a call from them inviting me for an interview. They set the date and said if I passed I'd be invited to an assessment day in Dubai. I was interviewed by two people, one from the HR department, and one from learning and development. The interview went well I think and they said I would hear back in two weeks, but I was never contacted. I sent an email to the address they told me to write to at the interview but never even received a response.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Danone.

    Interview

    First of all I had an interview with HR. They only want to know your availability of your profile without going into details. Then I had behavioral interview with my manager. The interview is not tough but it is important to think why Marketing and why Danone. It is also important to ask a few questions so you show interest in the job offer and the company.

    Sales and Marketing Graduate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Danone (Ealing, England (UK)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The turn around from my initial application to the assessment centre (AC) was quite quick. This was because they had room for one more graduate on the current year's intake, I was therefore shortlisted (even though I had applied for next year's intake) because I had already graduated. Up until the AC the application process was quite short. After submitting my application I just had to complete numerical and verbal reasoning tests, I was then immediately through to the AC. About a week before the event I had a conference call with the other candidates outlining what the AC was going to consist of, as well as research preparation I was expected to carry out. The AC consisted of two group activities, further numerical and verbal reasoning tests, as well as a competency based interview. I did not make it through to the second half of the day, so only participated in the testing and one group activity. I was quite disappointed not to get through, which I was told was due to my performance in the one group activity. Their graduate scheme seemed very good, lots of perks/freebies, great work-life balance and a good salary. I had a feedback call about a week later outlining why I had not been offered the role.
