CBD Intern Interview

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in May 2013.

Interview Details – Submitted an application online and completed two online assessments (one computer-adaptive IQ test and one non-cognitive personality assessment). A manager at P&G emailed me approximately one week later to schedule a phone interview. After completing the phone interview, I was invited for a site visit. During the site visit, I completed another IQ assessment, along with an in-person interview.

Both interviews the STAR format (Situation, Task, Action, Result) and included questions such as "Describe a time when you've had to manage a team" . Each interview lasted approximately 1 hr. All interviewers were very personable and made me feel at ease.

Overall, the process was rigorous and time-consuming, but very well-structured.

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in October 2013.

Interview Details – Once I applied it took a few weeks to here if I would have the initial interview. Once I received a time I waited about two weeks until my phone interview. After conducting that interview I had to wait two months before hearing back.

Interview Question – They want to know a lot of what happened and what did you do situations so be planned and prepared.   Answer Question

Interviewed at Procter & Gamble

Interview Details – Phone interview followed with a trip to Cinci to interview. There we took a logic test, interviewed with two employees, and toured. I enjoyed the two days there, it was pretty obvious everyone who worked there adored P&G. They give you 7k and a company car for the summer, which is definitely nice.

Bangkok (Thailand)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in June 2012.

Interview Details – Had to do an initial online personality assessment showcasing leadership and interpersonal skills followed by an IQ test (don't underestimate this). Didn't get a confirmation email so I called them and they told me I passed and to come in for a written test (easy). Had first interview about very basic interpersonal issues (e.g. how do you reach a goal, how did you diffuse a situation, are you a leader). Passed and had second interview with department uppers. Questions were related to resume and more interpersonal issues (you can find these in other reviews). Provide experiences to demonstrate you are a responsible, driven team player and leader. Got an offer but it failed to happen because mentor became busy.

Interview Question – None. All questions were fit, behavioral questions you can easily practice for.   Answer Question

Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in April 2011.

Interview Details – University emailed me about a recruiting event, went and was offered an interview. Interview was late in the season so the process was sped up more than usual. Only had one interview with two senior managers consisting of generic "Tell us about a time when.." questions. Skills/IQ test was easy with elementary math and basic morality questions.

Interview Questions

  • Tell us about a time when you had to overcome an obstacle in a group setting?   View Answer
  • Tell us about a time when you had to teach something?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate as I was happy to receive the offer but have heard that a returning intern was able to negotiate a 2000$/month raise.

Very Difficult Interview

CBD Intern Interview

CBD Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in February 2010.

Interview Details – Was originally recruited at a college career fair in November and had a 1:1 interview that consisted of behavioral questions. Then in about January I got a call from a different department asking for a phone interview. I had another 1:1 interview but this time over the phone, which consisted of a few behavioral questions as well as getting to know me a bit.

From here about 2 weeks later I got a call and was invited to Cincinnati for a final interview. In Cincinnati, I took a logic/reasoning test that was fairly difficult. Then I had a panel interview with 2 managers, this interview was about an hour long and was 90% behavioral questions.

Finally, I received an offer a day later! Overall, a very positive experience but very touch and selective. P&G is incredibly selective so make sure to stand out in your interview!

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to deal with a deadline?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – This position was for an internship so I did not negotiate the offer.
