Engineer Interview

Engineer
Caracas, Capital District (Venezuela)

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

Interview Details – The hiring process is split in 5 parts. First you need to make a quick test, with some math exercise, spacial and reading ability and some other stuffs... an example of the test is at the P&G web page. Then i had a first interview with HR, it lasted around 30 min, then another interview with the hiring team that was conformed by 3 technical experts... Finally i had the last interview with 2 of the 3 Section Head that work in my department.

Interview Question – I was request to speak part of the interview in English (The technical center is located in Venezuela). Also one question that never miss is the short and long term life plans.   Answer Question

Interviewed at Procter & Gamble

Interview Details – I was hired trough my university. I met recruiters at the annual job fair, filled out an online questionnaire/test and then went in for an interview. It was a standard "tell me about the things in your resume" interview with a few questions about values, "a time you worked in a team" and things like that, nothing out of the ordinary.

Interview Question – The questions were fairly standard, but make sure to do well in the online questionnaire/test because it seems many people do poorly and don't get past that stage of the process.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was absolutely no room for negotiation, but at least the offer was good.

I wanted an internship in my summer term but since I havent yet started on my research so I didnt know what kinda project I wanted to work on as the Intern would have made any sense only if I do it in my own research area.
