    The interview process goes as follows: Online App, Short Online Reasoning Test, Round 1 Interview, Long Paper Reasoning Test, Final Round Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    the interview process consisted of 2 reasoning tests and 2 interviews. After passing an online reasoning test (like the SAT format) and a behavioral phone interview i took a second hour long reasoning test at the headquarters and had a final round interview asking basic behavioral questions. The reasoning test was harder than the practice questions they provide but studying extensively for the reasoning tests is not necessary.

    Interview Details

    Everything was extremely professional. Regular follow ups were there. I had not only a rep in HR but another ABM who was a chaser to ensure that everything went well and to address any questions or concerns I had regarding Cincinnati, the role, the brand, etc. The questions were all behavioral and expected, grounded in the company's success drivers, which are readily available. Make sure that you have scenarios that highlight your skills sets along these vectors.

    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through school recruiting in October and was invited to take the Success Drivers Test online. A few days after, I was contacted for a 1 on 1 interview on-campus. The interview was a general behavioral interview strictly following the CAR (Context, Action, Result) format. The interview was about 30 minutes long, and the interviewer writes down detailed notes about your responses in exactly CAR format. Therefore, it's crucial to answer in CAR. About 2 weeks after the interview, I received an email saying that my interview was positive and that they would provide an update on my status in 60 days. In mid-december, I received an e-mail saying that this opportunity was no longer available. False hopes?

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went through on campus recruiting. I applied online, and had to do an online assessment. I was chosen to move on to the next round which was a math/logic test and an on campus interview. ALL of the questions in the interview were about their success drivers. They literally went down the list of them and asked me to describe a time when I displayed each driver, which was pretty exhausting.

    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initial online application - normal bio & experience stuff, followed by 2 assessments: one a skills driver and one a personality driver.

    Pass the assessments and you'll have either a phone interview or an on-campus interview (the vast majority of hires are MBA or UG students) with a person in the function you are applying to, typically someone who also graduated from your university/college.

    Interview process consists of behavioral questions designed to elicit responses showing your fit against P&G's 3 Success Drivers: Power of People, Power of Minds and Power of People. All interview responses are expected to be in the CAR format: circumstance or conflict, action you took, and results achieved.

    Based upon performance in the first interview, top candidates are brought back to the General Office in Cincinnati for a second round interview and assessments. The assessments are pencil and paper versions similar to, but slightly more difficult than, the online assessments - calibrating reasoning and analytical skills. The final interview is a panel interview with Associate Marketing Directors - with the same Behavioral question structure and topics (Success Drivers).

    A Majority of applicants hired come through the company's intern program, which recruits 1st year MBA candidates from top schools across the country.

    Interview Questions
    • "Tell me about a time when you expertise or in-depth knowledge of a specific subject area enabled you to take charge and solve a problem, and what were the results?"   Answer Question
