    Marketing Interview

    Interview

    The interview was about 30 minutes long and was mainly behavioral. I was also asked to critique a few advertisements. The interviewer was very nice, but it seemed like they really wanted succinct and direct answers since the interview was so short. I did not receive an offer from them.

    I initially qualified for this interview because of being a finalist in their national UniGAME competition. I was contacted by 1 recruiter and interviewed by 2 brand managers from different brands. Since I'm in California, this was over Skype. They were very friendly, nice, and asked challenging (but good) questions!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Unilever (Ithaca, NY (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the Future Leaders Program through campus recruiting. I went to a 4-round campus interview, where they asked mostly standard questions (walk me through your resume, tell me about a time you had to work in a group, etc.) followed by specific questions asking about the company (What's your favorite Unilever brand? What have you heard in the news about sustainability, etc.) and my interest in Consumer Packaged Goods. A lot of the questions were based on how I could work in groups and lead project-based teams, which made sense considering the focus on promoting interns to their rotational program.

    I received an offer the next day.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Unilever.

    Interview

    Standard good interview with the hiring manager, experiences, skills, etc. The problem was when HR called me a week after and told me to call them back, they did not pick up the phone. So I was waiting for hours with false hope only for them to tell me I didn't get it. Then they called a week later to tell me again I didn't get it... an email would be just fine, please.
