    IT Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Unilever (Englewood Cliffs, NJ) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Basically you will have 2 interviews. One with the HR rep and the other with the IT director. There wasn't any technical questions asked by either one. They were very friendly and made the interview seem like it was going to be great which it was. The HR rep asked three behavioral questions and then scheduled me for an interview with the IT director a day later and then the It director made things easier as well because he asked more behavioral questions and situation questions as well as about my credentials. This company is all about competency not about what you already know. They will tell you again and again that knowing technical stuff with help you with the job but they won't require you. All of the interviewing was done over Skype. Now I am stil finding out whether or not I will get the job.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Unilever (Englewood Cliffs, NJ) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview scheduling was decent, although I was not given clear directions to the location where I was supposed to meet with the hiring manager. It was a very large campus, so I ended up having to call the recruiter just before my interview to ask for specific directions.

    Unilever Future Leaders Programmer -- Supply Chain Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Englewood Cliffs, NJ

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Unilever (Englewood Cliffs, NJ).

    Interview

    Unilever got my name through Enactus, a social entrepreneurship organization that I am a part of and Unilever is a big sponsor for. They asked for an initial Skype interview and a week later I found out that I advanced to the next (final) round. That was Super Day, a competitive interviewing day at headquarters, in Englewood Cliffs, NJ. They flew me out there and the first day was a dinner and casual conversation with Unilever directors and leaders in the program currently. The next day was a group activity and 3 back to back interviews, with the last one being a case study question. The two earlier interviews were behavioral based. It was a high caliber group of people they brought in, about 25 of us, but they had no quota of spots to fill -- they could extend as many offers as they wanted.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question for me was the case study. I was not a supply chain or engineering major (the rest of the group was), and so I wasn't used to thinking like that. The case was essentially a situation where your company wasn't able to meet demand and you weren't given enough information. You had to just ask probing questions to your interviewer to figure out what had happened and then suggest what you would do to improve processes.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Unilever (Englewood Cliffs, NJ) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Received phone call from recruiter. Went to Unilever and met with 2 department managers and later with department head. Normal "what would you do" questions. Very positive experience. Everyone was friendly and smiling. Job pays very low ($12 hr) but the perks look good and there looks like room for advancement after 1 year. There is a background check and drug test. Atmosphere was laid back but busy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Unilever (Englewood Cliffs, NJ) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through their website and a recruiter contacted me the very next day. She asked me to submit a detailed resume and she said we would move from there. Two days after I sent it she got back to me and scheduled a phone interview. The interview lasted about 30 mins, and it was very relaxed. Asked me to walk her through my work experience, confirmed a few details about my academic background and asked a few general questions like "why Unilever", "strengths and weaknesses" or "expected salary". All in all very friendly and trying to make it pleasant.

    Interview Questions

    • None of them was really hard. As long as you get ready to face an interview, I think it's difficult that you get any bad surprise at this stage. Probably the next steps are harder.   Answer Question
