I applied through college or university and interviewed at Procter & Gamble.
Interview Details – You first have to apply through their online platform where you will have to complete some logical reasoning and competency screenings. They will then arrange a series of interviews (three, I think), and you will be screened by marketing employees who are actually involved in the business. As you progress, the persons who will be interviewing you will be higher up the corporate ladder.
Interview Question – They will ask you to produce an estimate of some sort to test your ability to work with incomplete information and to structure your problem solving. (e.g. how much sales do you think a store can produce in a year? how many taxis do you think are in the city of makati?) Answer Question
Very Difficult Interview
I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in February 2010.
Interview Details – they make you first a logical, math, redaction exam. if you pass this, the next step is an panel interview with 3 managers. They will make you diverse questions like what if you are in a labor conflict with your boss?? they ask me how many razor i will project they willl sale in the next 2 years. after complete the panel they will make you a medical exam, including a drug test.
Interview Question – What i will do if i had a labor conflinct? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Procter & Gamble.
Interview Details – 1. Online self assessment first - at home - Focused on meeting company's desired profile
2. English test (level between First Certificate and Advanced) and numerical test. Both are not difficult, issue is time to complete all questions (multiple choice, very limited time)
3. HR 1hr interview
4. Panel with 3 senior managers of the department for which the applicant is interviewing. Back to back, 1 hr each
Interview Question – The 'what would you do in the case of brand X in the market Y with this specific issue'. It is the classic question that the recruiter has in mind related to his job. The point is not to get it right but to share the thinking process so the recruiter can see how the person thinks View Answers (4)
Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Standard offer to new hires (it is a promote from within company)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble.
Interview Details – Initial screening + 3 interviews. Very objective and data based, focused on proving one's skills based on past experiences. Be prepared to talk about what you specifically did in those past cases and be able to quantify the outcome. Some questions for analytical thinking like Google's "how many golf balls fit in a school bus?" - don't worry so much about the answer but on having a clear thinking path to get there.
Interview Question – What were the 3 most difficult decisions you had to make in life? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Starting date and extra time off to complete my studies.
Interviewed at Procter & Gamble
Interview Details – I have applied for the Assistant Brand Manager Vacancy. I had to solve a behavioral multiple choice online test. It was pretty straight forward and mainly assessing your competency in different situations that you might face in your job. Then, after a couple of weeks, I have received an invitation for a reasoning test at their office in the Nile Towers. The reasoning test is unlike any test that you may see in any other aptitude tests in other companies. It sometimes can get tricky, so you have to be comfortable with numbers and figures in order to pass the test. The cut off mark is 75%. Two hours after I was done with the test, I received an email informing me that I have passed the assessment, and should be contacted shortly for an interview. So, I am waiting for my first interview. The process is exhausting and a bit lengthy.
Interview Question – Numerical, verbal, and Figural logic test Answer Question
I applied online and interviewed at Procter & Gamble.
Interview Details – First interview was very relaxed - basically a CV review, they liked specific details and numbers to substantiate each experience discussed. Second round was tough - it was with the two senior marketing directors, they asked for specific examples, and then later actually came back to the same question and asked for a different example.
Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble.
Interview Details – After passing the written test, I was interviewed by a (then) Brand Manager who talked about the company at length and asked me only 2 questions.
1. Tell me about yourself?
2. If you had a to take a go/no-go decision how would you go about it?
Interview Question – None. The interviewer had made up her mind before even asking me how I was doing. Answer Question
The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble.
Interview Details – Applied on the company's career website, did the online success drivers assessment, then( about ten days later) got an invite to the on-site reasoning exam, went over to the site, an upscale office building overlooking the Nile, signed in at the front desk and sat at the reception with around 20 other hopefuls waiting for the exam to start. About 20 minutes later, a lady came out and ushered us into a board room where we were to take the exam. The exam was divided into 3 sections, math section, verbal and a visual pattern identification section, 40 questions in 65 minutes. The math questions are pretty straightforward, mostly calculating percentages, rates and averages. The verbal section takes a little more sustained concentration, can get tricky and the answers can seem close, had to reread a couple of paragraphs after skimming through. The visual pattern questions are also straightforward, although i had to go with my intuition on a couple of them. The next day I received an email saying I had passed the exam and that they would proceed with the selection process and contact me shortly. I haven't heard from them yet but I read on their website that this phase can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks.
Interview Question – The verbal and pattern identification section. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in October 2010.
Interview Details – Did the intelligence tests in a classroom at McGill (was in my graduating year.) Those who scored well got invited for an interview, was a group/panel interview. And then a select few of us, I think 2-3 got called and flown to Toronto for an interview at the headquarters. Met up with your assigned 'mentor' for a dinner before the interview. Next day went in for interviews, was 2 on 1.
