    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process took two online tests (analytical and personality), one on-campus analytical test, a panel interview (with 2 people), lunch with senior manager, and a final panel interview (with 3 people). I was asked all behavioural questions for both interviews, as well as follow-up questions.
    My advice is to be very well prepared and know your experiences thoroughly because they will ask for every detail. It is fine to bring bullet-point notes to help you remember, as long as you don't read off the paper.

    Interview Details

    They recruited from my university and after the initial IQ and personality test, shortlisted some candidates for a screening interview. The office environment is very relaxed and the interviews took place in glass rooms. the interviewers were relaxed and friendly, although firm. They explained the interview process briefly and offered water/tea/coffee then began to ask the questions once I was comfortable. The interview was entirely behavioral. there were four comprehensives after the screening interview, also behavioral before they gave thier final decision.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied online, submitting my CV and covering letter. I then had to take two online tests consisting of a reasoning test and their "success drivers" assessment. About a month later I received an email saying I had been successful and inviting me along to their assessment day where I had to take another longer and more difficult reasoning test.
    I found out within 24 hours that I had passed this test and then was invited to have a phone interview, I again passed this stage and was informed straight away that the next stage would be face to face interviews with a senior manager. I travelled to their head offices and had my interview which lasted roughly an hour with two of their senior managers, and consisted of virtually identical questions to the phone interview. 10 days later I received a job offer.
    Apart from the initial waiting stage the whole process was very fast.

    (Translated from English)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Nach Einreichen Ihrer Bewerbung werden Sie gebeten, sich online einem diagrammatischen Test zu unterziehen. Wer mit dieser Art Tests nicht wirklich vertraut ist, könnte etwas Vorbereitung benötigen. „Pro Frage“ gibt es ein Zeitlimit von etwa 40 Sekunden. In Abhängigkeit von Jobprofil und Ihrem Testergebnis wird die Firma Sie in circa zwei Wochen kontaktieren.

    Der Auswahlprozess an der Firma bestand aus zwei Bewerbungsgesprächen und einer Art von grundlegendem Intelligenztest. Beim ersten Mal fand das Interview mit zwei Personen statt. Das Interview zog sich eine Weile hin, aber wirklich schwierige Fragen gab es nicht. Alle Fragen bezogen sich auf meinen Lebenslauf oder die Erfolgsfaktoren von P&G. Es folgte ein Test, der nicht gerade schwierig war. Aber üben sollte man ihn dennoch ein wenig. Ein Beispieltest ist auf der Website zu finden und dient als gute Grundlage. Es gibt 40 Fragen, eingeteilt in drei Abschnitte. Mir wurde gesagt, dass ich, um zu bestehen, mindestens 26 richtige Antworten haben müsse. Abkürzen lassen sich die Abschnitte nicht. Wählen Sie also die Abschnitte, die Ihnen am ehesten liegen und gehen Sie die Fragen dort als erste an. Ausgehend von meiner Leistung im ersten Bewerbungsgespräch und dem Test wurde mir gesagt, dass ich ein zweites Mal interviewt würde. Das Interview verlief wie das erste, aber diesmal gingen die Gesprächspartner ins Detail in Bezug auf das von mir Geleistete. Ich hatte mich auf der Stelle an nahezu jedes einzelne Projekt zu erinnern, an dem ich mitgearbeitet hatte.

    Hier sind einige Tipps, die bei der Vorbereitung auf das Einstellungsverfahren helfen könnten:
    1. Üben Sie die Art von Fragen, die im Test gestellt werden, so oft Sie können.
    2. Sehen Sie sich auf Glassdoor alle Bewertungen an und erstellen Sie eine Liste der Interview-Fragen. Für das Interview sollte das mehr als ausreichend sein.
    3. Kennen Sie sich und Ihren Lebenslauf in- und auswendig.

    Der Test sollte normalerweise in Ihrer Muttersprache erfolgen. Da der Test in meiner Muttersprache nicht verfügbar war, wurde ich gebeten, ihn in einer Sprache zu absolvieren, mit der ich am ehesten vertraut bin. Ich entschied mich für Englisch und mir wurden zusätzliche 15 Minuten zur Beendigung des Tests gestatted..

    After submitting your application, you'll be asked to take a diagrammatic test online. For people who aren't really in touch with this sort of tests, some preparation might be required. There's a time limit of about 40 seconds "per question". Based on whether you fit the job profile and your test scores, the company will contact you in about 2 weeks.

    The selection process at the company consisted of two interviews and a basic IQ (sort of) test. First up was the interview wit two interviewers. the interview lasted a while but there weren't really any difficult question posed. All the question were based on either my CV or the P&G Success Drivers. This was followed by the test. The test isn't exactly tough. But still one should practise a bit for it. A sample test is available on the website and serves as a good basis. There are 40 questions divided into three sections. I was told that I had to get at least 26 answers correct in order to "pass". There is no sectional cut-off. So choose the sections you feel most comfortable with and tackle the questions there first. Based on my performance in the first interview and the test, I was informed that I would be interviewed a second time. The interview was along the same lines as the first one, but this time the interviewers went into detail as regards what I'd done. I had to almost recall individual projects I had been a member of at the spot.

    Here are some tips that might help with preparations for the interview process:
    1. Practise the sort of questions as asked in the test as much as you can.
    2. Go through all reviews on Glassdoor and make a list of the interview questions. That should more thn suffice for the interview.
    3. Know yourself and your CV inside out.

    The test should normally be taken in your native language. Since the test was not available in my native language, I was asked to take the test in a language I'm most comfortable in. I chose English and was given 15 additional minutes to complete the test.

    Interview Questions
    • Es gab eigentlich zwei Fragen:
      1. Der Interviewer stellte 3-4 unterschiedlich große und geformte Becher vor mich hin und wollte wissen, was das größte Problem bei der Herstellung auf derselben Fertigungsstraße sei. (Dies bezieht sich direkt auf meinen Job
       
      There were two questions basically:
      1. The interviewer placed 3-4 cups of various sizes and shapes before me and asked what the biggest problem would be in producing them on the same production line. (This is relevant to my job since I'll be working in the manufacturing division)
      2. I was asked a question regarding a current problem the company is facing - it was related to lot sizes, production planning, etc. (I am not sure if I can state the actual question here. But those are braid categories it was related to)
