    Graduate Future Leaders Programmer Interview

    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Unilever (Leatherhead, England (UK)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    They are very accommodating throughout the process, paying up to £100 of your travel costs and putting up in a hotel before the assessment centre. The morning of the assessment centre, you and around 5 other candidates will be taken from the hotel to the Unilever headquarters in Leatherhead. Here your day will begin, as you are placed in a room and given an unbelievable amount of information to analyse, after which you will have to present the key points for around 20 minutes. My best advice for this task would be: time management.....sift through the waffle introductory information as fast as possible so that you can get to the crux of the matter and time to actually think about it. Next is the one-on-one interview.....basically the same stupid questions as the telephone interview that you are required to lie about: "please provide an example of a time when you have displayed super powers and single handedly improved relations between North and South Korea........ect" Finally you are put into a room with all the other candidates and asked to have a group discussion based on more wads of information regarding a business merger. This task should be fairly straight forward as you should basically be active in the discussion, but not overpowering. For me this stage was a complete mystery, as the guy who eventually got the job was completely unwilling to listen to anyone else's point of view.....

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Unilever (Leatherhead, England (UK)) in May 2010.

    Interview

    There was 4 stages in the application process. Application form, online tests, telephone interview and then the half day assessment centre (known as selection board at Unilever). The application form can be very long, there was 4 questions each 300 words and another one 500 words. These questions matter as they screen candidates out according to the competencies and skills. The telephone interview is a standard competency based one.
