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
  • 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.
  • 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.

We are equal opportunity employers committed to workforce diversity and fair employment practices.
