    Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview

    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

    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.

    Associate Finance Management Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview

    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.
