    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

    Not much negotiation, salary has little to no wiggle room - but vacation is more negotiable. Some relocation is also negotiable

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Unilever in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The entire process took approximately 4 weeks. I was initially contacted by an HR rep for a phone screen. I was then asked to come in person for an interview with the hiring team leader. The interview took approximately 1 hour, and the manager of the group was present as well. I thought the interview went very well; I answered all the questions and it seemed as though we were on the same page. I was very disappointed to learn after two weeks of waiting that I was not offered the position. HR did not follow up with me; I left the HR contact a voicemail and followed up three days later with an email to which I finally received a response.
