    They give you a scenario with a problem that reflects the actual job you are applying to do. Therefore they are trying to determine whether you would be competent in that role.
    oh i see! Did you think the scenarios were hard?

    Not overly hard but I did struggle and get flustered on the last one. A combination of it being tricky and the fact I didn't want to miss my train to the pub XD

    Not really, other than research the company. Good luck.

    How do you know you've failed? They haven't sent out any rejection emails yet since the video interviews?

    yeah, but you can definitely tell! I think I was quite nervous and didn't really know how to adapt my answers at all! Plus found my business scenario very difficult

    It's a recorded interview, not with a real person. You can record your answers to video questions at any time within 7 days of getting the email

    Thank you! How long did it take for you to find out the results to your online games test? I'm worried that I've completed mine but haven't had any emails since, I thought it would automatically tell us whether we matched and were through or not!

    Its hypothetical-based... You are completing task X and encounter problem Y, what do you do? Who does this impact and to what extent? Why do you do this? Etc. If you know your business area well and have the sense to see the bigger picture I imagine youd do fine!

    I've been waiting 3 weeks to hear from my interview now when beforehand I was receiving responses within a day or two. Weird. Seems like nobody has heard anything in quite a while. I know Unilever are having some issues but I didn't expect it would involve the recruitment team haha.

    Hi, for the video interview, do they ask questions like why you want to work for Unilever?, why you chose the specific programme etc or is it the 3 competency based questions and the business case?
