    Human Resources Grad Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Unilever (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Applied through the website and was directed to complete 12 short games. The games give you a score that automatically determines whether you have been successful or not. You should receive a response around a minute after finishing the games. I guess they are trying to determine whether you are a good match for the company, depending on your work style, speed, attention to detail, etc.

    There is a big chance for the games to be considered unfair by many since no one really understands what they are looking for exactly. After each game, you receive feedback that is always positive in some way, which could be misleading.

    Having a large pool of candidates, I won't be surprised if Unilever tries to select top 5-10% with the games, although running the risk to lose applicants due to false negatives.

    Overall, a pleasant and quick experience that might leave you puzzled about their processes. However, they are mainly looking for potential/talent and no one even sees your CV or hears about your experience until stage 4 of the process. If you have experience and want to be taken seriously for that - apply somewhere else.

    The overall process is definitely difficult!

    UFLP Human Resources Grad Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Unilever (London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Filled out a standard application form with personal details and uploaded CV. Soon after I was emailed a link to play 12 online games, you have a week to complete the games. You cannot prepare for the games. The games were fun but didn't really make any sense/wasn't clear what they were testing. I don't understand why testing how fast I can hit the spacebar is a measure of how capable I am for the grad scheme. The games took about half an hour in total and I was given personalized feedback on my performance. I perceived the feedback to be very positive (they base it on personality traits) i.e I was attention focused, quick thinker etc. About 10 min later got an email from unilever saying I did not get the required score to progress to the video interview. No mention of what was a good score/what they were looking for. It was all very ambiguous. Very disappointed that my ability was assessed via some stupid games rather than my CV.

    Interview Questions

    • picking cards, pressing the space bar as fast as you can, dividing money fairly etc   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Unilever (Bengaluru (India)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Well structured and to the point. No unnecessary questions on what are your weakness or where do you see yourself in 5 years. The interviewers focused on my area of interest and described the job role in minute details.

    Spring Week Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Unilever in March 2017.

    Interview

    Fairly brief. Initial application form, followed by numerical and psychometric testing. I was then invited for phone interview. The interview is outsourced so no connection with the interviewee, they sounded very uninterested which was very off-putting.
    They asked lots about their values (i.e. bias for action, adding value). Many of the questions I didn't quite understand and must have given very wrong answers for. Make sure you read the information they give you regarding the phone interview very thoroughly!
