Interview Question – Pretty standard. Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Unilever NV in November 2011.
Interview Details – I had a five month term as a team leader with temporary agency. Then had interview over the phone with a recruiter. Once the phone interview was a Go, I had a call the next week letting me know the date and time of my face to face interview. The interview was short and I left with a positive idea. I later was contacted for time and dates of my physical and urinalysis. Then I was given an offer, once I accepted they mailed me paperwork with contracts and benifits.
