    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Unilever in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on their website back in February for several positions. Several days later I received some emails rejecting some of the positions I applied. Then in mid April I received an email from HR asking for a phone screen. I scheduled for the next Monday. The interview was mostly behavioral. She asked me why I applied and went through my resume, mainly my projects. The interview was quite short.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview

    Typical on campus interview. We went over my resume and was asked about leadership... "tell me about a time", etc. A lot of behavioral questions. Very few questions about the company and the actual position. One question was technical, asking about what I did to understand marketing and how I would contribute, but other than that it was all about leadership and examples of taking initiative.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Unilever (Fayetteville, AR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Met with them at the career fair, filled out a profile on their iPads, as well as handed in an application. Got a call for an interview 3 days later. Was very laid back, the group interviewers were very professional and not so aggressive or intimidating. Was a great experience. Definitely nothing to be worried about if you have researched the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    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.
