    Interview Details

    Interviewed on campus at college/university. The interview was mostly behavioral, nothing technical or too tricky. Interviewed in Cincinnati after that, again mostly behavioral with a few questions about marketing or brain teasers. Pretty straight forward interviewing stuff to be honest. Nothing to throw you off.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    The first thing they asked me is to complete Assessment Test, something like Personality Test. It took a week for my agent to reply me and arrange me for the next step, i.e. Reasoning Test, which is IQ/Intelligence Test consisting of 40 questions. I did not complete all the questions because of the time limit. However, the next day my agent informed me that I passed the test and can proceed to the next step, which is face-to-face interview. She sent me a draft which consists of sample questions for me to answer and they will assess from it if I am applicable for the interview. She gave me 2 days for me to prepare. It took 4 days for her to reply me and give answer. My draft was accepted and they arranged me for interview. My agent told me to refer to those questions in the draft and prepare more examples to give.

    On the day of the personal interview, I waited for half an hour for another candidate to finish.
    The interviewer is a Filipino girl who has been working for more than 10 years as an Operation Manager.
    The first question is always 'Tell me more about yourself'. Then she went through my resume and asked about my work experiences. I was a bit nervous because she asked me more questions which is so different from the draft my agent gave to me. I didn't prepare much for those questions because I thought tougher questions will be asked during the last step, which is another personal interview by higher level management. I can accept the fact that I didn't prepare for the worst questions they will ask. However, I don't like the way the Filipino girl interviewed me. She was having her breakfast while asking me questions which made me question on her professionalism.

    Consumer & Market Knowledge Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I started off applying to a career fair, and P&G invited me to do a 'Managerial ability' test and a 'logical reasoning test', both on-line and before being invited to speak to them at the career fair. I passed those and was invited to do another IQ and logical reasoning test (65 minutes test) at the fair, which included mathematical issues and figures (guess what the fifth figure will be etc). I passed that one and had a 40-minute chat/orientational interview with a P&G manager. To him I indicated my country and department of interest and within 2 weeks I got an invite to do a panel interview with them at the Geneva headquarters. The interview consisted of 3 different people, straight after another and each taking about an hour. The whole process went rather smoothly, and the people were very friendly and informal (first name, no business casual on their side).
