    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview Details

    A couple phone interviews with manager and HR people, as well as a final in person interview
    Most managers are nice and they want to get information on your experiences and business issues you've solved or been exposed - pretty normal process, nothing too hard or stressful
    HR isn't very good, they don't always answer all your questions and can some times misguide you

    Interview Questions
    • Explain a business issue and how you solved in detailed - show samples of your work   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not much negotiation, salary has little to no wiggle room - but vacation is more negotiable. Some relocation is also negotiable

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Unilever in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    One entire day of multiple panel interviews.
    I should have been informed of their dress code. I was over dressed and needed to wear extra protective equipment.
    Two of us (candidates) were processed together on the same day. We attended an opening meeting, lunch and closing meeting together. The panel interviews were held separately.
    I never heard anything back from anyone!

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Unilever in February 2013.

    On Campus Interview. Got the interview opportunity in the school career fair and had an on set interview the next day. It went on pretty well and I had a good chat with both interviewers. Got the offer later in the same day. It was a 6 month internship. So the process is much simpler than a formal employee.
