Hi,

I have a telephone interview with Unilever for a role in Unilever Information Office and I was wondering if anyone could provide any advice as to what sort of questions they ask?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Manjit

Do u spit or swallow!! Just kidding. They should have told you what they are going to ask you. I have had two telephone interviews and both asked me to walk through my CV to date. Why I was a suitable candidate and what I knew about the company and role I was applying for. Does this help?

The telephone interviews were for different companies neither of which were Unilever. Both were for Grad roles

Hi,

Did the unilever phone interview a few months ago:

1. Why did you apply to this role/unilever?

2. What do you like about unilever?

3. What would you expect to be doing on a day to day basis?

4. A teamwork example (went wrong/fixed, you had a leadership role, ect)

5. What competencies do you bring to this position/job?

6. Tell me about your uni experience/degree/choice, etc

7. Your work experience/internships: what did you learn by working at XYZ

8. Any questions? (have a couple intelligent ones ready)

This is a basic run down of the questions I was asked. It's probably an HR person doing the call so expect a similar set of questions.

I think this stage is more of a screening than an integral part of the interview process. What I mean is that its 80% how you say it and 20% what you say. So don't interrupt the caller, don't go off on tangents, be enthusiastic, friendly but professional, confident, clear and prepared on the role, company and review your application looking for areas that they will want to elaborate on.

Good luck!

Did you pass the phone screening please? Did they tell you the next step such as the selection in the end of the call? Thanks.

Next step after telephone interview is normally a face to face interview.

Ad that interview it is very important to show...

Your attention to detail

That you are up to date with latest thinking

That you appreciate delivering to timelines

Hi Manjit,

I've done a fair few interviews to date and what experience has shown me is that sometimes, more so recently in fact, its the questions you ask rather than the answers you give.

Id ensure you adopt an even pace and answer what's been asked when they question you, but when it comes to "any questions" this is the key, you will demonstrate so many qualities by picking 2-3 intelligent questions as mentioned.

Trust me :)
