    Pros

    Good culture, people are nice, hours are stable but depends on your department. Good dental benefits.

    Cons

    Pay isn't as well as it used to be, increase is very small even for a promotion. Great performance is not really rewarded.

    You need to review your compensation programs in order to retain the best emplyees

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Colgate-Palmolive.

    Interview

    Took a few weeks all in. First round was a phone interview with HR. Very behavioral - walk me through your resume. Why Colgate? What position (more than 1 in the dept I applied to)? Tell me a time you analyzed a large data set. Then their "superday" in NY where all the interviewers asked the same questions drawn from a standard interview booklet. Make sure for each behavioral "Tell me a time" question, you have multiple stories ready to go. All my interviewers were nice and professional.
