    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive.

    Interview

    A very short phone interview with a recruiter. Scheduled via email through a school job board. Basic questions no star stories or behavioral questions. No case. Three or four questions after the walk me through your resume. Very loud typing. Didn't know many answers to specific Brand Management questions.

    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Had a HR telephone call which went for about 45 minutes. It was very conversational and I really enjoyed it. Opened with the classic 'Tell me about yourself' and then went into various aspects of the role. I asked questions about a few people I knew who worked there (and that she knew) and what opportunities are available.

    Interview Questions

    • Interviewed focused a bit more on 'big data' analytics than I originally expected. It's a core focus on my MBA and my summer internship before hand so was able to work through this.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive (New York, NY) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Heard about the interview from a headhunter and submitted my resume for consideration. I had a phone interview with an HR rep. It was a standard behavioral interview (i.e. Tell me a time when type of questions.) I was invited to HQ in NYC soon after. There were 8 candidates for 3 openings on various teams. Every candidate interviewed with 3 Marketers and 1 HR rep. My overall experience was great. All of the interviewers were very nice and the questions were straightforward. The best advice I can give to a potential interviewee is to remember to answer the interview questions in the standard STAR format.

    Marketing Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive (Brussels (Belgium)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through my school'd job board and I received an email shortly after that telling me that the Category Manager would be calling me for an interview over the phone (I was in Paris at the time, and the position was to work in Belgium). The phone interview lasted a little bit over an hour, was very friendly and asked all the regular "marketing questions". It was even easier that most marketing interviews. After that I got an invitation to have a face-to-face interview in Belgium. There I had to do a case study, presented to the team and had a short interview.
