    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at P&G Western Europe.

    Interview

    Online cv, online assessments, telephone interview, reasoning test at the office and then some more interviews. I am at the reasoning test stage so will comment about the last interviews when I'm through. The telephone interview was very pleasant, the employee I spoke was genuinely interested in my career and what I wanted to do at P&G.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at P&G Western Europe (Lisbon (Portugal)).

    Interview

    On line test:
    - Behavioral (60-80 questions). If you don't concentrate and don't take it serious you will fail for sure. Prepare to take around 1 hour! If you think it's too much for such an important opportunity, "you're not the right person for P&G".

    Face-to-face Test, written:
    - Reasoning Test - 60 Questions in 65 min - analytical, logical speech, picture based. Don't take to long in the math and the images

    Interviews:
    3 interviews, 1 hour and 2 interviewers for each one.
    Prepare to speak about all your life time experiences (not only professional and educational), how you react, overcame, failed, learned, lead, follow, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • "tell me about some situations of conflicts and how you managed it".. I had to find at least 3, and each one led to more questions.
      "tell me about a situation, if you have, where someone changed your mind, despite you were positive of being correct. And how they did it."

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at P&G Western Europe (Weybridge, England (UK)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Applied in March and did not hear back until June. The initial screening consisted off the success drivers test and a logical reasoning test. Be warned, the reasoning test is not like common SHL tests so you would be wise to practise using traditional logic books. I had a telephone interview which lasted 20 minutes and focused on demonstrating the success drivers. Have some questions ready for your interviewer as P&G expect you to ask. I got to the final round which was held at the HQ in Weybridge, Surrey. I had to complete a test in person which was considerably more difficult than the online test but really, you'll be fine if you revise GCSE maths (especially if you have not touched maths in a while). They tell you the results of the test on the day. If successful, the tests are followed by 2 interviews with senior members of the company.
    They expect the best without being stuck up. All the people that I interacted with on the recruitment journey were personable and polite.
