    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Toronto, ON
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Unilever in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    Unilever in a large company so the interview process is slow. Once you apply online an outsourced HR company (not part of Unilever) call you for a phone interview. If you pass that the next step is meeting one on one with your hiring manager.

    The questions are typical brand managment questions: make sure you reasearched the brand you are interviewing for, P&L, typical consumer for the brand etc.

    Global Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Singapore (Singapore)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Unilever in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    There were 3 steps to the process - one phone interview with the HR, one interview with the hiring manager, and one interview with the director. In addition to that, you may be asked to do up a proposal for them if you lack in a certain skill.

    The HR will email you first to arrange a phone interview. Please be in a quiet location for that.

    Please do not be late for any physical interviews. It is a good idea to be prepared with any presentations that showcase your relevant skills, whether in a portfolio or displayed digitally. Having contacts inside Unilever helps a lot as well as they can give you more advice.

    Everything is done professionally in a relaxed environment, with the HR being very prompt in follow-ups.

    Graduate Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview Details

    Telephone Interview after applying online, online tests were easy enough if practised, long application online as there were four questions to answer and they also wanted the entire CV written out in their own way. Interview was extremely structured, the interviewer seemed to want STAR answers and really specific things rather than a conversation. The leadership requirements they talk about have one question each which they tell you which one they are aiming at before the question.
