    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting. Entire process took about a month - includes 2 one-hour behavioral based interviews (use CAR format responses - context, action, result) and then two technical aptitdude testing exams. One online, one paper form. First round was a phone interview, one on two, they asked about 7 questions in total with many follow up questions to initial response. Second round was also a one on two, I couldn't make it to their office so it was video conferencing. Style was identical to the first round but with more senior people

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Attending the Pre-MBA ABM camp in Cincinatti. I completed the online application. Once I got through that, I received a email for assessment test. I took 2 tests:?1 behavioral and 1 analytical.

    Was scheduled for a 30 minute interview. Interview went well. Received an offer to attend the camp.

    The Camp was good but I did not like the culture. Everyone spoke the same and seemed very robotic.

    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    There were two initial phone interviews and two online tests. I then interviewed at the GO in Cincinnati and was hired a few weeks later. It was a fairly average length process, but can be very long depending on the time of year that you apply for the role.

    Negotiation

    It was fairly quick. The salary was higher than my previous salary so it was an easy decision.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • None were difficult or unexpected - with the right preparation, i.e., knowing the success drivers and applying your life experience to them!   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations but the offer was very competitive in all regards so I didn't feel a need to negotiate.
