    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive.

    Interview

    Very easy as they follow STAR method. They asked more behavioral questions. Interviewers are always smiling and making you comfortable. They are really looking to see if you have leadership skills and ability to bring new ideas to the team.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive (Piscataway, NJ (US)) in May 2020.

    Interview

    The interviews were very laid back and very chill. Be yourself, and you will do well in the interview. Make sure you are passionate about the company and that your goals align with their culture.
    It was a two-step process
    The first interview was with a recruiter
    The last interview was with a company manager

    Senior Scientist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive.

    Interview

    Applied online. About 3 weeks later an HR emailed me to set up a phone interview. Two weeks after that she contacted me back to set up a video interview with the hiring manager. Then a couple of weeks later was told they filled the position. One great thing about the process was the HR would respond and let me know about the next step and let me know if I am selected.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive.

    Interview

    I got through to the final stages: Phone Interview, Video Interview, Onsite Interview.

    Only negative aspect was that I applied in Nov and the entire process concluded end of Jan. HR was very slow and ghosted me month of December essentially. The interviewers were very nice though but the application length was a huge turn off for me.

    Brand Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive (New York, NY (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Disrespectful & Dehumanizing. I made it to the final round which consisted of a dinner and in person super day. I attended the dinner but got sick the night before the super day so I worked to reschedule with them and eagerly expressed my interest. They gave me a one hour 'virtual interview' in which I was speaking to a black screen and told me if I made it to the next step I'd get an in person interview with a manager. One week later I was sent an automated rejection email. If a company about healthcare cannot understand someone's illness then who will? It was made very obvious the makeup interview was just out of courtesy and they were purposely being unresponsive so they could hear back from other candidates and not waste their time bringing me in the office. You would think after I went to the dinner they would have the decency to email me personally about a rejection. Truly disappointed and disgusted at how people have the audacity to make full time interviewees feel so worthless, even after seeing the candidates in person.

    IT Summer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Colgate-Palmolive in December 2019.

    Interview

    IT was really hard for an intern position. They should be lenient when interviewing for a summer intern position they don't know everything and can't expect them to know since they are still in school.
