    I worked at Colgate-Palmolive


    A very successfull company that is a leader in the industry. Friendly poeple that are good at what they do.


    Talking about toothpaste non stop can be quite boring. They are not very aggressive in advertising so it is hard to compete with others.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Colgate-Palmolive.

    Interview Details

    Useless logical test, not related with technical stuff, but much more business oriented maybe, really dont understand the purpose, it cannot be for psycological attitude, because 2 persons that passed the test after 6 months they were fired because they were kind of retarded (real sense of the word). After i had 2 interview technical with 3 different managers, and it was pretty clear they had no clue of what i was talking. They've asked to me is it was fine for me to do suppor in enlgish (it's not my main language) and I said yes till i dont talk with indian or southafrican because i just cannot understand their english. They said that they could understand my point of view, they've hired me, and now the biggest part of my contacts are with south africans and indian, well this is Colgate :D
