    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Unilever in March 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview lady was sooooo friendly, even if you are nervous by the end you won't be as its so relaxed, Prepare as much as you can as the questions are simple, also try and insert all the things you learn with your examples as there wont be a question allowing you to just state all the things you know so you need to work it in. Be yourself and use the STAR format and you will be fine. Good luck!!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Unilever (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It is a process that takes a long time (about 2 months), but which has very few steps. First there is the CV and Cover Letter submission, after that there is a digital interview, that lasts for about 30 minutes and has about 5 to 7 questions and the final step is an interview with your future Manager, which includes a case study.

    Telephone interview lasting approximately 30 minutes.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Unilever (Wallasey, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Had a telephone interview which was to lead to a face to face. This was my first interview in 24 years and I was abut nervous at first, but I found the interviewer to be very calming and I found it a really positive experience. I received really good feedback and would have progressed, however I couldn't guarantee release when required and they weren't prepared to take the risk.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Unilever (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Pymetrics games to determine whether I was suitable for the company. 12 games to test personality traits, cognitive traits and emotional responses. The games aren't hard at all but they just kind of tell you what kind of person you are. A bit like when the hat chooses a house for you at Hogwarts based on who you are. If your traits fit with the company then they choose you for a video interview. I didn't get through.
