    Clinical Scientist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Unilever (Trumbull, CT) in October 2013.

    Interview

    It began with HR, then the Senior team members then the director. Efficient and responded (vis 3rd party recruiter) in a reasonable amount of time. There is really nothing more to say. It was fair and they responded, which was novel, but then again I got hired. I do not know if I would have heard from them if the response was negative.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    not really with salary, but increased the vacation time.

    Interview

    On Campus Interview. Got the interview opportunity in the school career fair and had an on set interview the next day. It went on pretty well and I had a good chat with both interviewers. Got the offer later in the same day. It was a 6 month internship. So the process is much simpler than a formal employee.

    Regional Distribution Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Unilever (Trumbull, CT) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I first had a brief phone interview that lasted about 5 minutes. Next, I had two consecutive interviews with 1 person for each one. I was an internal candidate. Each interview was about 30 minutes. In the end I was not offered the position because the person they went with had way more experience than me. For me it was kind of a waste of time since that was their number one candidate to begin with
