    Supply Chain Interview

    Interview

    The whole process was all about competency questions. Phone interview was with someone from the HR department and it felt very artificial. I didn't enjoy it at all. The interviewer was typing my answer up as I was speaking which was very annoying and created long gaps in-between questions. They did not seem to have the knowledge of the position I applied for.

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

    Interview

    First to complete online application. This was followed by an hour telephone conversation. Questions were all competency based putting the candidate in different situations though out. The usual sort of questions, no curve balls. got the opportunity to ask questions at the end but the lady on the end of the phone wasn't able to answer it, and didn't know much to be honest because she was just in recruitment. I failed, but if i was to do this again, i would try and have got more key words in my speech to keep her hungry for more.

    Interview

    The interview was quite straight forward, however, I did not like that all the questions were preprepared and they were not tailoring the questions towards you and your skills. The interview was it 3 sections with 3 questions each. The first section was on my CV, the second on situational questions and the third on why Unilever and why this position.
