    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    It starts with the "on line test". Do not take this lightly! It evaluates your reasoning skills and your potential as a manager/leader. If you fail the test, your interviewing process stops before it starts. And you will have to wait another year before you can take it again! Since I was an experienced candidate (not a right-out-of-college grad), I did an initial phone interview, then I was asked to do a site interview. I was flown out to the site, did a series of 1:1 conversations with other managers (including breakfast and lunch), then was given a tour (where I asked lots of questions), then a 2:1 interview with the plant manager and one of the Ops Manager. Within one hour, I was given an offer (a letter stating my salary). Interestingly they knew there wasn't an immediate opening just yet, so I had to agree that I would be ok not knowing my exact position until I started my employment. (2 months later). I stated that I" understand", and that I would let them know my decision within two days. From there I did a drug test, and flew home. The whole process from start to finish was 4 weeks, and overall I think it was very fair and well executed.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. The offer is the offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    Honestly, it was a very comfortable interview process. The interviewer allowed for a very calm and friendly atmosphere and was open to answer any questions I had about the company as a whole. Overall, the interview process was great. I passed the first interview but something went wrong with my application and so I was not contacted for a second.

    Interview

    Starts with an online assessment, followed by a phone interview. If these two critical sections are passed, you'll be invite for an site visit in which case you'll be required to take another written assessment (similar, but slightly longer than the online test). You'll then have a 2:1 interview with members of the site leadership team, in which case they'll ask similar behavioral questions to the phone interview. These questions are all based on experience and how you've handled different scenarios and situations in the past.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time in which you've had to work with someone that didn't see eye to eye   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very little negotiations as a new employee out of school coming to a large company with standardized means of compensating employees

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Iowa City, IA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Online/On-Site Technical Test: Can't study for it. Kind of like the ACT or something. Just competency. On-Campus Interview: Asked non-technical performance/behavioral based questions. "Tell us about a time you had a difficult co-worker. How did you resolve the conflicts" "Tell us about a time when you had to change directions suddenly in a project course" "etc" Really it's a company with strong values and they are looking for people with good personalities and character. So their interview process is all about filtering people through to see who can drive results, who can have fun, and who is competent enough to compete within. Site-Visit and Interview: Consisted of several interviews with upper management. Asked very similar questions to on-campus. Trying to learn about you, your styles, your personality. Just trying to see if you somehow slipped through the cracks and just making sure they liked you. Not too bad, just was myself and it worked out pretty well. Iowa City has a very nice workforce and the environment is great, clean, and fun.
