    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Procter & Gamble in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    1. Online Application - includes a personality and iQ test
    2. First interview with two co-workers
    Very simple questions. Mostly situational questions like "when was a time when you took leadership in a project" etc.
    3. Second Interview with two department managers
    Harder questions. It is obvious that they focused on questions I didn't answer that well in the first interview.

    It is a three step process. The first interview is very difficult and requires a lot of thinking on your feet. The do not ask the typical questions. After an online portion there is another in person interview. Thisis more of determining if you are a good fit for the job.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviews were conducted by HR and then two engineering managers. As expected for an intern job, many of the questions were based on previous university projects and experiences. The questions focused on teamwork, how you help others and come up with your ideas. They also focused on the ability to influence others. They lasted around 30 minutes each and phoned me later that day to tell me that they wanted to offer the job.
