    Sustainable Sourcing Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Singapore (Singapore)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Unilever in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication - Recruiter messages on LinkedIn for the position. I mailed in my CV for an initial discussion and understanding of the role
    Initial call with recruiter - Roles and responsibilities, current compensation, expected compensation, reporting structure discussed. I was told that the profile has been put up for consideration, and next call with the Director is to be scheduled in two weeks.

    There was no acknowledgement of the email after the initial call, nor was there any response for a follow up email two weeks later. After another follow up, I got an email saying they have other candidates, and my application is no longer under consideration.

    My view is that they already had a candidate in mind, and they just sought out other resumes. Not a transparent selection process.

    Interview Questions
    • It was only an initial call with the recruiter. They did not even schedule the next call as promised.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview Details

    After application was contacted within two weeks and invited for an interview at HQ. Was a very friendly, competency-based interview to assess how you react in certain situations (e.g. when have you had a situation where you've been overwhelmed with work and what did you do, or have you ever experienced a difficult situation with a colleague and how did you handle this).

    Two weeks after the interview I was invited to the assessment centre. It was a full day of interviews, group exercises and business challenges. It was a long and difficult day, but was interesting none the less.

    The whole application process was very efficient and friendly, and really showed they care about those people applying for positions.
