Management Trainee Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive (New York, NY) in March 2008.

Interview

tough interviewing for marketing position. lots of impromptu brand analysis questions and approach assessment questions. also usual crop of "tell me about a time" stuff. so come prepared with knowledge of brand elements, situational questions, attitude assessment questions and of course be prepared for the unknown. e.g. the first question they posed is why would i like to stay in new york (i didnt even want to but had to answer something asap).

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive (Mumbai (India)) in January 2016.

    It was a 2 round process. Group discussion followed by personal interview. The questions asked were base on what you write in cv. Go thorough company website. I was asked mathematical questions too as I mentioned Maths Olympiad in my cv. So this is the extent of depthness which is followed in interview.
