    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Typical STAR behavior-based interview with each question starting with "tell me about a time". One aspect that was interesting, and borderline inappropriate, was the probing of my personal life as to whether I was married with children. The questions were on the familiar subjects about leading, process, difficult situation and co-worker, and success. The main interviewer seemed very disinterested and pre-occupied, which made it extremely difficult to connect. The panel lasted, maybe, a half-hour and the rest of the day consisted of meeting current ABMs, a test (the P&GMAT), and concluded with a very nice tour. The people seem very engaged in their jobs. It also appears that groups move very often, in terms of building geography. We got to see the famed boardroom, as well as the "museum". The environment felt comfortably conservative. There is clearly a cloud of tradition, but this seems tempered by youth and the winds of changing market dynamics and opportunities. The promote from within philosophy is and will be a challenge for mid-career professionals, or career-switchers with substantial work experience.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Geneva (Switzerland)).

    Interview

    The method is behavioral interviews. I.e. you will be asked to give examples for various situations where you had to demonstrate leadership, collaborate, convince someone to do something, etc. There is also a reasoning test online - my tip is to do the practice questions. Many do not pass this one.

    Interview Questions

    • Could you give an example for a time you tried to convince a group to take a course of action and failed.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Zero negotiation as it was my first job, and the terms seemed very fair. They made an offer and I accepted.

    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Interview

    The interview process is rather straight forward. The application is followed by an invitation to take an online test (logic test and success drivers). There are many examples available on the net and although the test is not hard, it's advisable to spend a bit of tome going through examples of the logic/reasoning test and reading up on the success drivers. Same goes for the written test, which is not particularly hard, but one needs to be fast to be able to finish. I had 2 interviews, which were very pleasant and fully success driver based, no marketing questions. Answering questions with the CAR model (Context, Action, Result) is certainly appreciated .

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiating salary as a new hire. I did however negotiate to change the location of my first assignment from their proposal to my preference.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in June 2010.

    Interview

    I actually applied for a different position and got called for the ABM which was quite surprising, considering I'd applied for that before and got no response. I was directed to the online assessment , gave them the 'right' answers, moved to phone screen. I prepared my a** off, worked out, got moved to the next round, and she actually gave me feedback which was pretty nice of her. But I think I took her feedback too far and it ended up causing me the final offer (cos I asked for feedback from that and she told me where I fell short! arrgggghhh) I'm still trying to get over it. oh well. Also took reasoning test before interview. The interview questions were similar to phone screen but with a slight twist (which I was unprepared for) so I had to change some of my stories. All in all, quickest interview experience ever (right after IB or consulting). (Can I rate interview easy even if I didn't get the job? I mean I think it was....no grilling of any kind, I was actually quite relaxed....)
