    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Unilever (Telephone, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Online application form with a few competency based questions -
    What attracted you to apply for the Unilever Placement Programme?*
    - What attracted you to your chosen business area within Unilever?
    - What actions have you taken to find out about Unilever and your chosen business area?
    - What appeals to you most about working for Unilever? (core values/principles, employment sector, suited to long term career ambitions etc).
    - Please indicate why you think Unilever should employ you.

    pretty straight forward, got through to a telephone interview which was shorter than the 30 mins predicted.
    Not much about Unilever, competency based - they give you 5 main competencies, give examples of each of these
    - also why the role

    QC Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Century, KS
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Unilever (New Century, KS) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted through a contractor who set up the interview. Arrived on time but ended up having to wait for them to let me in. The setting was casual and the interviewers only asked a hand-full of questions. I was basically given the job with very little push from them as long as I passed the background check.

    Talent Acquisition Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Unilever in November 2015.

    Interview

    Very dissapoitning experience. I had a phone screen with a very nice lady which went well. Then they asked me to come in for an in person interview. The interview was scheduled and confirmed and then about 30 minutes before they called to cancel it. They asked to swith it to a phone interview. However, I was already at the interview location so I had to race back home to make the time they scheduled the phone interview. Then the lady who called me at the scheduled time was incredibly rude blaming her coworkers, saying an in person interview was never supposed to be scheduled. She was not apologetic and had a very poor attitude. Overall, it was a very discouraging experience for a job seeker. Questions she was asking were not even related to anything the job entailed- I am not sure if she was aware of the position she was calling me about.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview

    I had an on campus interview with 2 people. They asked a lot about what you know about Unilever and why you want to work in consumer products. Started pretty general and then got more technical as it went on. Very friendly interviewers though and it was not at all stressful. I got a call the next day with an offer. The HR staff was also very friendly and helped clarify questions about the offer letter and so forth.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Unilever in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through Enactus website about a month later received an email to do a phone interview. The recruiter was very last minute with interview slots. During the call the recruiters had technical difficulties and seemed very disinterested, no real engagement. They were very short on responses and if that is any indication of there work culture than I would not recommend.
