Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Unilever.

Interview

I applied online and was asked to complete a virtual assessment which consisted of 12 "games" which was basically an in-depth personality assessment.
Then, I was invited to participate in a hirevue video interview. This was all situational, but make sure to tie it back to the company's values, etc. Then there was a case study at the end where I had to do some basic calculations.
I was then invited to the finance discovery day. Here, there were 2 group activities/case studies, lunch, then 2 30 minute interviews. This was all behavioral, and mainly situational with hypothetical situations that Unilever may face.

    it was just one hour-long interview with the line manager. She explained possible projects that I would be assigned to, and asked for my preferences.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Unilever in December 2014.

    Interview

    Application and online testing was pretty straight forward.
    However, the phone interview was soley competancy based. The interviewer did not want to know about any research or industry knowledge I had, just grilled me on my cv. Had prepped answers about individual competancies but often the questions were linking 2 or more together so had to think on my feet.

    Found the interview to be extremely rigid and uncomfortable.

    Was given an oportunity to ask questions but everytime was just refered to the company website (whether it was about industry specific's or the internship itself).

    Throughout the whole process I found the graduate recruitment point of contáct to be extremely helpful and efficent. They reply to emails and make there decisions very quickly.

    Interview Questions
