    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Unilever.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Sustainable Sourcing Assistant Manager Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Unilever in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication - Recruiter messages on LinkedIn for the position. I mailed in my CV for an initial discussion and understanding of the role
    Initial call with recruiter - Roles and responsibilities, current compensation, expected compensation, reporting structure discussed. I was told that the profile has been put up for consideration, and next call with the Director is to be scheduled in two weeks.

    There was no acknowledgement of the email after the initial call, nor was there any response for a follow up email two weeks later. After another follow up, I got an email saying they have other candidates, and my application is no longer under consideration.

    My view is that they already had a candidate in mind, and they just sought out other resumes. Not a transparent selection process.

    Interview Questions
    • It was only an initial call with the recruiter. They did not even schedule the next call as promised.   Answer Question
