    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed 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.

    A couple phone interviews with manager and HR people, as well as a final in person interview
    Most managers are nice and they want to get information on your experiences and business issues you've solved or been exposed - pretty normal process, nothing too hard or stressful
    HR isn't very good, they don't always answer all your questions and can some times misguide you

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Shelton, CT (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Unilever in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The entire process took approximately 4 weeks. I was initially contacted by an HR rep for a phone screen. I was then asked to come in person for an interview with the hiring team leader. The interview took approximately 1 hour, and the manager of the group was present as well. I thought the interview went very well; I answered all the questions and it seemed as though we were on the same page. I was very disappointed to learn after two weeks of waiting that I was not offered the position. HR did not follow up with me; I left the HR contact a voicemail and followed up three days later with an email to which I finally received a response.

    Graduate Role Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview Details

    Telephone Interview after applying online, online tests were easy enough if practised, long application online as there were four questions to answer and they also wanted the entire CV written out in their own way. Interview was extremely structured, the interviewer seemed to want STAR answers and really specific things rather than a conversation. The leadership requirements they talk about have one question each which they tell you which one they are aiming at before the question.
