Applied through campus recruiter who I met at a career fair and online. Recruiter called to prep me for the assessment and personality tests. Somewhat difficult personality questions asking you what you would do in certain situations. In real life I would have done 2-3 of the given options, making it hard to choose between the answers.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Ann Arbor, MI) in October 2014.
I went through a campus recruiting option. First, the online application to the corporate site was submitted, and then the two online assessments (about 30 minutes each), with the first being behavorial style questions and the second was problem solving / pattern identification. Was then contacted by a campus recruiter for a first-round interview in person. All of the questions were very straightforward, behavioral questions, except each question was problem-based (i.e. examples of when or how I worked through various problems in different scenarios). About an hour in total.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Bloomington, IN) in October 2014.
I attended one information session, and then completed the online application. The application was easy, but you had to take two assesments, one that just used a likert scale and another that had you identify patterns. Then I was emailed for an interview, and at the pre-night had to take another test. The interview itself was a one hour behavioral interview. The questions were pretty standarn (tell me about a time when, etc). Definitely make sure you many examples of leadership and data analysis.

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.

Behavioral interview. Questions are generally, "Tell me about a time when you..." No trick questions. They just want to understand your experiences and how you have handled situations in the past. Leadership is very important.

the first step is completing the online application. the next step is the online assessment which consists of various reasoning tests. some parts are timed and some parts are not. after, you will receive an email telling you whether or not you have passed the initial screening process. then there is a phone interview, and a final interview where they fly you out to their corporate office.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Procter & Gamble in March 2013.
Application online with online assessment (not very difficult, some pattern recognition and logic questions)
First round interview about one hour
Asked to go to a testing center to take a test that lasted about an hour. Simple math problems, some word problems, and more pattern recognition problems.
Second round interview talked to three different people. Repeated the same behavioral questions, but they all want you to answer in the same format: give the context, what was your contribution, and what was the outcome.
