Assistant Brand Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Unilever.

Interview

Applied online, passed online games, had video interview and received feedback but no insights as to whether or not I had moved on. Still not sure if I moved on even after reaching out to recruiters. Whole process seemed very impersonal and robotic. Not a fan.

    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Unilever (Englewood, NJ) in November 2012.

    Interview

    1:1 Interview (On-Campus), if you do well...

    Invitation to Superday in Englewood Cliffs. The night before Superday, the company takes you to dinner. It's pretty relaxed...getting to know the people/company. Important to talk to the employees and learn about the company (employees are eager to share their experience).

    The next day there are two 1:1 interviews. I enjoyed both of my interviews, but I've heard different opinions (depends on the interviewer obviously). Just be yourself and, and you'll do great! I would say that they definitely want to challenge you, but that's the fun part!

    Lunch.

    After the interviews, there is a case scenario. You have about 90 minutes (if I remember correctly) to prepare and present with a team. You're given a product category and a few demographics...then you have to come up with what you want to take to market given the constraints. I was really nervous for this portion, but it's honestly not that bad at all. There are 3-4 Unilever employees that are watching how you work with the team and how you can involve your other group members.

    Side note: some people have the case before lunch and the interviews following lunch.

    Overall, the interview process is great. They link you up with a "mentor" who is a current employee. I LOVED my mentor because he really motivated me and boosted my moral before my interview! I haven't started as of yet, but HR has been an absolute dream to work with. I am really excited to start this summer!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was happy with the contract/package. I didn't negotiate, but it seemed like a pretty firm offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Unilever (Lisbon (Portugal)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Basically, It was a unformal interview. The interviwer was the Axe brand manager and he was a very cool guy. It wasn't a tipical interview with the tipical question. Indeed, it was a nice conversation about myself and my expectation. Although, I was subject to question about the product that I would be working on, real problems that they were having at that time. He also "played" with my, asking me some numerical reasoning questions, which I was not expected and thus, it didn't go very well

    Interview

    Very simple interview process. Applied through a recruiter and got an interview call the next day. Got the job in 2 days. Basic STAR type questions with the Marketing Director and VP. No negotiation on the salary but it was a fair salary anyway.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Unilever (Dubai (United Arab Emirates)).

    Interview

    It was quite easy as they primarily check your enthusiasm and your people skills. There is no such analytical or mathematical tests. Your prior work experience matters.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    You cannot really negotiate as each position level has a salary bracket that needs to start from 80% for a new joiner, unless you are a special talent and I was not in that case.
