    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive in February 2016.

    Interview

    On campus interview, followed by a strange video format interview with HR. The video software was very dated (audio was on the phone and video on the computer), and required a set up interview with a Greenjob agent the day prior. Overall, the interview process was pretty streamlined, though. Really straight forward STAR technique interview questions. As it is a sales role, make sure to have some situations lined up that involve client-facing interactions and negotiation skills.
