    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Unilever (Jakarta (Indonesia)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The selection process takes several steps, here I would only discuss the process in Assessment Center. First there is Focused Group Discussion where candidates are asked to solve a business case and reach consensus. Then followed by a case presentation, one for the general case and one for the functional case. The two process would lead to shortlisted candidates and only the shortlisted will proceed further for interview with user.

    Interview Questions

    • General question on strength and weaknesses, followed by personal question such as background and motivation. There is also a question about the understanding of the applied position's daily job.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Unilever (Manila, Manila (Philippines)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Online application - online exams - phone interview - line manager interview - assessment day

    I applied online during august, but they waited until deadline before they called us. Deadline was on November 2015, I got called December of the same year. Results of the phone interview came out February 2016 and I never heard back after that.

    interview was okay, questions were easy: mostly competency-based questions and situational ones. Always always ALWAYS back your claims up with actual situations. They need not be academic or workplace-based, any will do.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Unilever (Moscow (Russia)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online in September 2015. It took about two weeks for them to answer. I should say that the whole application process is somehow confusing and there are no clear guidelines. The process was very long, the HR managers are not able to meet deadlines they announce in emails.

    The competition is extremely high and HR managers seem very indifferent to interviewees. Unilever does not make those interviews by themselves, they have an outsourcing company and this firm is pretty bad in what they are doing.

    Interview Questions

    • Competence-based questions, explain the time when you made the hardest decision in your life and why   Answer Question
