    I met Unilever representatives on campus at my university career fair.

I applied to the position through their website and my campus recruiting job website. I was given a 1st round interview and I was told only 2 people were being selected to go to the final super day interview. The interview was an average behavioral based interview that lasted about 30 minutes. I heard back the same week via e-mail that I would not be invited to the super day interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.
