I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed 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?

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed 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.

Given that I did not believe in GPA's and I said this upfront in the interview, I was very impressed that they did not believe in it either, and gave me the opportunity based on my overall experiences.
Interview Question – The most difficult questions were based on my extracurricular experiences, where the interviewer went into absolute depth to ask about a project, asked me about the number of attendees, price per ticket, total revenue and profits - and even used a calculator to make sure I was giving the right answer Answer Question
