I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Unilever in March 2009.
Interview Details – I applied for the job on the company's website. after three weeks, I was called by a recruiter and he informed me that the hiring manager was interested in interviewing me for the position within a weeks time. I asked for the the name of the Hiring Manager and his phone #. With that information in hands, I set out to do a thorough research on the Hiring Manager, the Company, the Position and the functions of the daily task of A similar post in other companies.Google, Yahoojobs.com are great help. Once at the interview, I had a heartfelt smile and strong hand shake with the HM. He broke the ice by talking about the game the nite before. I jumped in with a lot of passion and we tlaked for about trash about individual teams. He was a cool guy! I liked him right there. Once on the main issues of the interview. The same passion I showed him about the game , was displayed about the job and I spoke about all the llttle details that I could. After the interview, He asked whether I would like to see around the office and I accepted. The office was clean and bright. I was introduced to the person leaving the job for a promotion. we Talked a little bit about the job and said to him that when I come in, I will keep the name on cubicle for six months and he laugh and commented," I like you already" .
Well, I got the job the next day.
As you can see, I did my home work, I showed passion, and was a likeable poerson. I learned later from my manger, that the guy put in a word for me via an email. Please do all your home work, Like you are taking your GMAT!!

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate my salary. I was initially offer $5k above my salary at the time. However, I researched and knew that they were willing to offer a $10k for the job based on experienced. I drew the Interviewer attention to my work with other members of the sales team and I certainly knew how the Sales force operated. And that he would not have to take a long time to get me acquianted to the inner working of the job. More Importantly, I knew how to use the mian software that the Sales force used daily. I got the $10k I requested after a few minutes of discussions with his Manager.
HTe advice is simple: get to know a whole lot about the job by researching every aspect including the softwares, the people and the daily functions.
