I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Unilever.
Interview Details – I felt very welcome at the headquarters by all the interviewers. The process was very casual, mostly behavioral questions. Lots of questions about my leadership style. No case or difficult technical questions. Before the onsite interview, I had a phone interview with HR, then a Skype interview with the Director of the category.
Interview Question – One interviewer questioned me about the category, competitors, etc. in the industry I used to work in. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Unilever in December 2012.
Interview Details – Submitted online application to a third party website, and a few days later, received 1st round phone interview. It was a very short, 15-20 min, chat about fit questions and relevant experience. Fortunately, was referred to the HR and arranged a "super-day" interview. It was probably the most intensive interview process I had ever been through. 90 mins case prep and 15 min *2 presentations to senior directors, followed by 30 min 1-on-1 pure behavior interview with one Sr. director, and lastly a 30+30 min group case interview. It was a whole day event in their Connecticut research site.
Interview Question – Group case interview observed by senior directors. Candidates took turns to express individual observations, and then it was opened up to group discussion with a goal to reach a consensus (no right or wrong). View Answer

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Unilever in November 2012.
Interview Details – 1:1 Interview (On-Campus), if you do well...
Invitation to Superday in Englewood Cliffs. The night before Superday, the company takes you to dinner. It's pretty relaxed...getting to know the people/company. Important to talk to the employees and learn about the company (employees are eager to share their experience).
The next day there are two 1:1 interviews. I enjoyed both of my interviews, but I've heard different opinions (depends on the interviewer obviously). Just be yourself and, and you'll do great! I would say that they definitely want to challenge you, but that's the fun part!
After the interviews, there is a case scenario. You have about 90 minutes (if I remember correctly) to prepare and present with a team. You're given a product category and a few demographics...then you have to come up with what you want to take to market given the constraints. I was really nervous for this portion, but it's honestly not that bad at all. There are 3-4 Unilever employees that are watching how you work with the team and how you can involve your other group members.
Side note: some people have the case before lunch and the interviews following lunch.
Overall, the interview process is great. They link you up with a "mentor" who is a current employee. I LOVED my mentor because he really motivated me and boosted my moral before my interview! I haven't started as of yet, but HR has been an absolute dream to work with. I am really excited to start this summer!
