    Commercial Graduate Development Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Parsippany, NJ
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at RB in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email to set up a Skype interview. After making it through the initial interview, I was invited to RB's U.S. headquarters in Parsippany, NJ. The company covered all travelling expenses including a car service to and from the airport.

    The assessment is a day-long process at the HQ that involves a series of interviews, case-studies, and tests. The next step is a job offer, which I didn't receive. From what I gathered, the assessment days are very competitive, at least for the commercial program, with only several applicants offered employment.

    Overall it was a great experience. The culture there is very appealing, and mostly everyone involved in the recruiting process was friendly and helpful. If you are interested in any of their programs, I would suggest you apply.

    Interview Questions
    • RB focuses on behavioral questions instead of typical interview questions. This can be quite difficult because you'll have to come up with real-life examples of group work/leadership etc.   Answer Question

For this round, there were several group case interviews, one one-on-one interview, and some case write ups.

    Commercial Graduate Development Program (Sales) Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Parsippany, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Parsippany, NJ
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at RB in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    First met them at the career fair, then applied online through my school's career portal (and had to take a math test). Was invited to have a first round, face to face interview on campus.
    Got second round (which is also last round) and was flown down to their North American headquarters in NJ.
    The day before: cocktail from 6-8PM, get to meet the other graduates and employees at RB.
    The day of:
    1. Breakfast
    2. You are put in a group with 3 other graduates and are given a case. It is a supermarket trying to increase its sales. You and your members are each in charge of a category in the store (e.g. cosmetics, snacks...) and must agree on how to allocate the budget. RB is testing your negotiation skills and how you solve problems.
    3. Break
    4. You take another math test (to prove that it was indeed you who took it the first time)
    5. You are given a case you must solve alone. More of a situation and must find various alternatives to increase the sales of a product/save costs. I wasn't sure if they expected me to focus on the actual numbers and compute the gross margin %, or give theoretical solutions...
    6. You have a one on one interview. Very similar to the first one I had at school.
    7. Lunch.
    8. You are back with the same 3 group members you were with in the morning, and are responsible to solve a case and present it to the RB employees who are in the room.
    9. End of day. You will know if you got the job the following day.

    Field Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Parsippany, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Parsippany, NJ
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at RB in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initial 1:1 interview with a recruiter at a large recruiting event. He asked me what I was looking for and also told me about the company and job. I was contacted a few days later by another recruiter by phone and given instructions on how to apply to the position online, take an aptitude test and a chance to ask any other questions. A few days later they contacted me to set up travel arrangements to interview at headquarters in NJ; they paid for the flight, car service and a hotel. There was a reception the night I got there and they went over the agenda for the interview the following day. The actual interview day was a full schedule, 2 group case studies with other candidates, 1 individual case study, and 1 interview. An offer was made within 3 business days.

    Interview Questions
    • For the interview there are typical behavioral interview questions, some don't make much sense. For the case studies there are right and wrong answers, be mindful of keeping the profit margin.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The pay structure, while very competitive for entry level sales, is salary and bonus. I was looking for salary and commission.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Parsippany, NJ
    Application Details

    The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at RB in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was accepted to an On Campus interview with Reckitt Benckiser. The interview was 30 minutes long, and consisted mostly of behavioral questions. There were also a few basic Finance questions (like what is more important to a company, Net Income or Cash Flow?). After that, they told me they would get back to me in about two weeks. I didn't hear from them at the two week point, so I sent them an email a few days later restating my interest and asking when I might hear about a follow up. They called me two days later offering me the position and discussing details with me. I told them I needed time to decide, but they pressured me to decide within a week.
