Assistant Brand Manager Interview

Assistant Brand Manager
Toronto, ON

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – Who is the typical consumer for the particular brand you are interviewing for. They go into detail about their brands.   Answer Question

Supply Chain Summer Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Singapore (Singapore)

I applied online and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Unilever in March 2014.

Interview Details Online application (includes 7 competency questions)-->A 20-minute phone interview-->A half-day assessment center which contains one-to-one interview, group case study and individual case study. The case study was the hardest part. It included 3 sub-cases and lots of reading material and we were given 45 minutes to come up with solutions to the 3 cases. It was not department-specific. I applied for supply chain but received cases related to marketing as well.
