An interview is your opportunity to tell us about yourself and what you can contribute to our organization.

We use a style of interviewing called Behavioral Interviewing in which we ask you how you acted in specific employment or school-related situations in the past, as one of the best predictors of future performance is past performance.  We use a STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) selection approach to evaluate you on our Critical Behaviors for Success and job fit:

  • Initiative & Decision Making
  • Analyzing & Problem Solving
  • Customer Focus
  • Achieve Business Results
  • Flexibility
  • Leading & Engaging
  • Teamwork
  • Communication

For example, we may ask you:

  • Tell me about a time in your career when you had to make a difficult adjustment.  Why was it difficult, what did you do, what options did you consider?

We will then ask you to answer using the STAR process:

  • Describe the Situation/Task
  • Explain the Action
  • What were the Results
Preparing for the Interview
  • Research the UL family of companies and our industry – visit www.ul.com
  • Bring a copy of your resume, any letters of recommendation, etc.
  • Familiarize yourself with the job description and the components of the position for which you will be interviewing.
  • Be prepared to talk about your past positions/roles, experiences and responsibilities in detail.
  • Assess your own skills – thinking about them both in general as well as those specific to the position for which you will be interviewing.
The Interview
  • Be on time. Confirm directions to your interview location in advance.
  • Be confident.  Some individuals feel a bit of anxiety about the interview process. But relax and stay focused on the interview and just be yourself.
  • Ask questions.  It is important for you to ask questions as it demonstrates your interest in the UL family of companies and you will also learn more about the organization.
Follow-up
  • Send a thank you note or email to your interviewer(s) and recap why you are a good fit for the open position.
  • If you would like an update on the status prior to receiving notification from Human Resources, feel free to contact the recruiter for a status update.
