Mondelez Telephone InterviewIf Mondelez likes your application or if you have performed well on the aptitude tests, they will contact you to set up a telephone interview. This stage is used mostly to review your CV and gives you an opportunity to add or elaborate on anything you included. Make sure that you have a calm, quiet area when speaking to the Mondelez interviewer and a copy of your CV in front of you.

Mondelez Assessment CentreThe Mondelez assessment centre is the final stage of the recruitment process which means it’s your last chance to impress the recruiters. Even though you have been successful thus far, remember that preparation is still vital. Before the assessment centre, do your research on Mondelez, the FMCG industry and Mondelez’s brands. Think about the position you are applying for, why you want it and what you can bring to the company. Get a good night’s sleep the night before and dress to impress to ensure you have all the confidence you need.
The Mondelez assessment centre includes:
Group ExerciseDuring the group exercise, your group task is to solve a problem given by the recruiters as a team. The task you are given isn’t necessarily related to your position or field, rather it covers a general topic. In the past, groups have been tasked with developing a new product. Group exercises are an opportunity to showcase that you are an effective, assertive team member who listens to others. It is also important to be creative, showing the recruiters that you can think outside the box. To find out more about group exercises, see our dedicated page and pack.
PresentationThe presentation at the Mondelez assessment day is on a topic you are given in advance in order to prepare. The key skills being examined at this stage are your confidence in public speaks and how well you can sell your idea. It’s important to remember to speak concisely and avoid going off topic. You should also be likeable, even when driving a point home, as Mondelez is more likely to hire someone they like and remember than someone who gave a boring presentation.

Role PlayThe Mondelez role play is for graduate scheme candidates. In the role play you receive a business challenge that you need to work out in a one-to-one dialogue with a representative from the company. This helps give Mondelez a good picture of how you would act in a real life business situation. This exercise is not based on any prior, technical knowledge in order to give all candidates a fair chance. Review the Mondelez values to get a better sense of what they want from you and see our dedicated page to get some more tips.
InterviewThe interview is the final part of the Mondelez assessment day and hiring process. Questions in the interview mainly focus on your competencies and the interviewers expect you provide examples. A good method for planning out your answers is using STAR (situation, task, action, result) to make sure you give them everything they are looking for. Before the interview, think of some examples when you have exemplified the Mondelez values. These examples can be from previous work experience, school, volunteer work or anywhere else you can think of. Consider including in your answer possibilities of what you have done differently and what you have learned. Candidates for R&D and chemistry roles can expect more technical questions in their interviews.
