    Recruiter was very on top of scheduling initial interview. HR took longer to respond as it got closer to the notification date. Overall, HR department was very helpful and kind throughout the entire process.

    Attended information session at university I attend and then applied on my college career site with my resume and cover letter. I also applied on the Unilever website.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Unilever in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online in late October. In mid November, I was emailed about setting up an interview. Because the position is for the Cincinnati location and I live in Cleveland, the interview was via Google Hangouts. I was interviewed by a member of the Customer Development team as well as a member of the Marketing team. Questions were standard, interviewers were friendly and the process went smoothly!

    Intern Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were like "tell me about the case, when you had to..."   Answer Question
