Human Resources Assistant Interview

Human Resources Assistant

Interview Details – My initial application was accepted which consisted of a number of competency based questions as well as the normal information you have to input. The person conducting the telephone interview was very friendly and put me at ease and asked questions involving why do I want to work at Unilever and for Human resouces as well as a number of more competency based questions linked around their qualities as a company. I got the decline around a week and a half after the interview.

Finance Manager Interview

Finance Manager

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Unilever.

Interview Details – Application is very lengthy, I think they do this to prevent copious amounts of applicants and therefore limited it to those who really want the job.

Online tests were difficult - surprised I got through to be honest. Practice the ones from the SHL website. They are the most relevant ones.

Interview was fine - very friendly lady. They ask a great deal of competency based questions, but are every specific, so in one question they might ask you to demonstrate 3 different competencies in one activity. I suggest having a list of 8 activities where you can demonstrate competencies so that you always have something to say and are not repeating material.

Interview Question – Who are Unilever's competitors? What gives them the competitive advantage/edge? Why?   Answer Question
