    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Unilever.

    Interview Details

    It was an on campus recruitment which started with an online application submission, followed by group discussion, a team activity and 2 rounds of interviews. There was shortlisting after the application submission and the group/team rounds.

    Done quite professionally. They tend to like young grads vs people wiht more experience and prefer women.

    The interview rounds allow you to make your point with the interviewer focused more on listening.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Unilever.

    Interview Details

    As I was a referral, the process was rather easy and quick. After they received my CV, I received a phone call from HR to make an appointment for a telephone interview. During this telephone interview I was asked some basic interview questions: why do you want to work for Unilever? Why did you choose marketing? Why not anything else?. After successfully rounding up the that interview, I was invited for a face-to-face interview. Very chilled and relaxed experience with some basic and out-of-the-box questions.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview Details

    After completing online shl tests I had a telephone interview. It seemed that the interviewer did not care much about my answers, but more about asking all the questions written on his/her list. My replies were followed by "mmm, okay" all the time. Can't call it a proper interview or a nice talk.
