Brand Manager Interview

Brand Manager

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in April 2011.

Interview Details – A strange interview process. I was written and given an set of times to choose from, and told to complete an online test. Upon selecting the time, my interview took place at a University? Seems they wanted to just fit me into their recruitment schedule...
Fine interview, interviewers were very stoic, not an easy crowd to get a smile out of.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had to do something you didn't want to do.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Seemed like a very hierarchical company, very by the book. Not interested in working at places that seem afraid of change.

Brand Manager Interview

Brand Manager

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in February 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process started with a phone interview (it was supposed to be in person, but weather caused transportation issues for the interviewers). The questions were all behavioral/fit questions -- tell me about a time when ... etc. etc.

The second part of the interview was a test - much like the GMAT but with spacial orientation, IQ sort of stuff.

The third round of the interview was another phone interview with more behavioral questions and specific questions about brands I liked, why they work well, advertising campaigns that are successful etc.

I did not receive the offer (probably because at the end of the day I'm not that committed to brand management and was shaky on my brand knowledge).

Brand Manager Interview

Brand Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in November 2009.

Interview Details – Very through process. I went through 4 interviews, an IQ test, a phone interview and and online test! The interviews all run through the same overall flow, but it gets more "loose" as you get closer to top-management. Overall it was a quite frustrating process, since the interviews ran for over 2 months and I only got very little feedback along the way - and when my application was denied at the final interview.
