What are the Danone CEB SHL Tests?

Consisting of a set of 18 questions pertaining to numerical data presented in table or graph form, with related multiple-choice questions to proceed, the CEB SHL must be completed within 25 minutes. Applicants are tested for their numerical abilities with problem-solving questions and equations to be solved pertaining to percentages, ratios, conversions and fractions.

Within a brief 19-minute test period, applicants taking the CEB SHL verbal reasoning test address 30 questions, each of them consisting of a concise text followed by a series of text-specific questions. Evaluation of quick analytical thinking skills is the primary objective of this test, as comprehension levels are assessed based on your ability to identify whether statements pertaining to texts are true, false or indiscernible based on the information provided.

Danone Undergraduate Placement Process vs. the Graduate Scheme

The recruitment process for both undergraduate placements and graduates is nearly identical throughout the first 3 stages of the recruitment process, whereas stage 4 is what distinguishes one process from the other.

The Application Form and Submission of CV

The first stage of the Danone recruitment process is fairly standard and requires applicants to submit their application form online with their CV. Put your best foot forward at every stage, but particularly in this preliminary pre-screening process, as Danone receives countless applications annually and they hand pick their candidates. This is your opportunity to show that your pursuit of a career with Danone is in line with their passion and mission for health via nutrition, and that you maintain a clear understanding of corporate culture. This giant in the food industry recommends researching the Danone website, speaking to employees and accessing company reviews online prior to formulating a cover letter or answers to application form questions. 

Danone SHL Numerical and Verbal Tests

Candidates that have made it past the first stage of the application process will move on to Danone's aptitude tests, both numerical and verbal provided by SHL. Danone's experts evaluate test results as indicators of logical and deductive verbal and numerical reasoning to help them identify if you have the cognitive abilities, soft skills and agility to adapt to the various challenges employees meet daily. Passing these tests help the Danone recruitment team identify your contributing assets, and the comprehension and problem solving skill levels you can bring to the specific role. The total time allotted for both the numerical and verbal tests is 45 minutes, and thus provides the employer with an indication of how you're also able to resolve situations and challenges under time constraints and pressure.

Danone Video Interview

Once passing the numerical and verbal tests, Danone graduate applicants will go through a video interview that consists of 3 core questions. Your answers to them will provide the recruitment team with sufficient insight about who you are, what values you prioritize and how you understand Danone's goal and role in today's market. The Danone interviewers are looking to see how you maintain grace under fire and confidence, so bring your best communications skills to the forefront of the conversation and don't rush with any answers to questions. Be calm, thoughtful, thorough and articulate, all of the innate signs of a leader who can deliver results under pressure and overall.

Please note: Undergraduate placement applicants may or may not be asked to undergo a video interview, varying on the field and nature of the placement.

The Danone Leadership Academy

Applicants that have successfully completed the first 3 stages of Danone's recruitment process move on to the final and 4th stage: the Danone Leadership Academy. Since you've come this far in the process, the team at Danone are encouraged to help you succeed in your final stage of the application process, and thus offering you a briefing call with useful tips and pointers the week prior to the Danone Leadership Academy's commencement.
