    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Unilever (Jonesboro, AR) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Before Unilever will hire you you must first go through a hiring company called ManPower. Doing this means that you'll be able to get trained while being paid. The hiring process takes a while through Unilever's system. After ManPower clears you for work you then have to go to Unilever for a secondary interview with the quality supervisor and the quality manager. If everything goes well then you will be hired.

    Very straight forward, they give you an example of some claims and you give your suggestions how you would solve the issues. They don't tend to give alot of facial expressions throughout so you can't judge how they feel about you, but overall its a typical interview.
