Reasons for Declining
Happy with present employer
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.
- What area of human resources I would prefer to go into out of three that were listed. Although I had made a note of these three areas from the website, the interviewer wanted reasons and I wasnt too sure what each area consisted of . Answer Question
I applied online – interviewed at Unilever.
had logical and numerical tests, tests were pretty hard,, then had a 1-hour telephone interview. was asked general questions about why Unilever, why fmcg, what issues are affecting Unilever, what actions did you take to find out about Unilever and about Finance department, creative ideas, what skills do you think you have to become a good manager?
- Describe a time when you went out of your way to satisfy customers 1 Answer
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Unilever.
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.
- Who are Unilever's competitors? What gives them the competitive advantage/edge? Why? Answer Question
I applied through college or university – interviewed at Unilever.
Applied online through campus career centre was contacted for an on-campus interview the next day to happen later that week. Two interviewers. Entirely behavioural - questions like Why Unilever, tell me about a time you dealt with a difficult team member, what is your greatest strength. Left a lot of time to answer my questions. They do not tell you if you're not selected, must contact to confirm.
- Market sizing question Answer Question
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Unilever.
Initial Phone interview with a Finance Manger. I was asked the standard 'tell me about yourself' questions + why Unilever. Then went into a mini case regarding pros/cons of merging 2 divisions at Unilever.
Second Interview ended up being over the phone for me as well, though that's not typical. This interview was with another Finance Manager + CFO. Standard 'tell me about yourself' questions, + why Unilever. They were more trying to assess fit and likeability. No case in the 2nd interview.
