    Contract Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Englewood Cliffs, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Unilever (Englewood Cliffs, NJ).

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter and received a call for an interview not too long after applying. The interview consisted of very basic questions as the job was temporary and I was coming right out of college. It took about a month and a half to hear back from them.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview

    I was reached out to over email soon after applying for the position. Scheduled interview with the recruiter on Skype and was ghosted. Followed up twice and heard nothing, not even a rejection or update about the process. Very disappointing and unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Unilever (Englewood Cliffs, NJ) in October 2008.

    Interview

    First contact was a brief phone screen with HR. Once that was completed I was brought in for a full day "Interview super day." It is about 4 personal interviews and then there is a group exercise where you are evaluated when you work in a team with other interviewees to determine your leadership skills and ability to function in a team.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Unilever (Englewood Cliffs, NJ) in December 2010.

    Interview

    It was pretty standard. You went through a general phone interview first and then you got to choose to be on-site for a full day interview with diffrent people. There was a group activity that you have to do in a 4-5 people group and have a final presentation at the end.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Unilever in October 2014.

    Interview

    Internal hire so had a quick 30 min interview with the Brand Manager. They like to hear about what moves you, what your purpose is. I had already worked in the category so was very familiar with what they were looking for. This was probably not a typical interview as they also needed someone urgently.
