    Supply Chain Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview Details

    The interview was conducted by two employees. It was more like a conversation rather than an interview. Very straightforward questions. The interview questions were more focused on leadership and what I can bring to the organization. I was not even a supply chain major but still received an offer. Amazing turn around. Got an offer a few days after interviewing.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Unilever.

    Interview Details

    2 rounds of Interview:
    1st - with a recruiter; she will ask about your background; give information on Unilever and hiring process.
    2nd - with hiring manager and another person in the team

    Overall, the questions asked by the recruiter were harder than the hiring manager.
    The hiring manager was very laid back and made you feel very comfortable.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    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 Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.
