Interview Details

First of all, you need to pass the online assessment center tests. They will require around 2h30 minutes because you have to both introduce all the details, reply to ~60 questions about yourself and past experiences and then, you have 2 IQ tests. After this stage, if successful, you are going for a live test, reasoning test (math type) of 60 minutes. Last stage is 3 interviews, not necessarily the same day.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    I got in touch with P&G through a career fair at my university. I had an interview on campus, then a phone interview, and finally, I was flown out to OH for an in-person panel interview. It was an interesting and challenging process, and I felt like a lot of their "paper" interview questions were extremely similar to one another. However, they were extremely thorough and their employees were very kind and understanding. One was not even thrilled about having to ask the repetitive questions. Usually they give you an answer (at least for internships) after your interview in OH, but in my case they had to wait a few days and deliberate. In the end, I got the job for the summer and it was a great experience.

    First I did an online pesonality test that was easy enough, then I got a mail from them to make a logical test (it came un 3 parts, one was about math, the other was about understanding some sentences and choosing the correcta affirmation, and the last part was about number sequences or geometric sequences, etc), after that test they instantaneously (like 1 hour after) told me that I passed the test and they did me an interview, 10 minutes after the interview the told me that I passed that stage again and that they will contact me later for the last interview (a panel interview). Today they called me and said that my panel interview will be on friday!

    Interview Details

    They recruited from my university and after the initial IQ and personality test, shortlisted some candidates for a screening interview. The office environment is very relaxed and the interviews took place in glass rooms. the interviewers were relaxed and friendly, although firm. They explained the interview process briefly and offered water/tea/coffee then began to ask the questions once I was comfortable. The interview was entirely behavioral. there were four comprehensives after the screening interview, also behavioral before they gave thier final decision.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process for me for the P&G internship was long and agonizing. I applied for the Cincinnati, OH position sometime in september after sitting through an informational visit to my school. The application consisted of a reasoning test, a word based math problem test, and a questionnaire.

    I finally recieved a call from them in early December and was givin a date for a phone interview. The phone interview consisted of questions such as "Describe a time when you worked in a team setting and contributed to the overall success of the project or task at hand." "Describe a time were you led a team to success." "Describe a time in your life that you feel has contributed the best to the person you are today and the values you believe in." After this, I was told that I had succesfully passed the interview section and that I would be contacted soon about the next step in the interview process which was the day visit.

    Here is where things get agonizing, I didnt here back from them for months, when I finally heard back from them, they apologized for the wait and said that unfortunately, the time frame for the Cincinnati, OH facility had closed and that they are sincerely sorry for that. They then told me that there was also good news, they had transferred my application to the Jackson, TN Pringles Facility and they really liked me on paper so they would be contacting me soon for a possible internship.

    Still I waited. I went through another phone interview with them and succesfully "passed". They again told me to wait on contact, which took entirely to long. Finally in June 2010 as I was "working" at Embassy Suites Hotel, I noticed a reservation for the convention room under Proctor & Gamble. I then called my contact for P&G and explained what I saw and behold! The site manager was to have a meeting there this weekend. I spoke with him and he agreed to meet me for breakfast the morning of his visit. All went well.

    Unfortunately, they called me 3 days later and told me that due to economical set backs, they could not bring in an intern this summer. BUT, they garuntee me a position for next summer. I took this as a nice way of them telling me I didnt get the position so I didnt expect to here back from them. 5 months later, in the middle of november, I recieved a call from my P&G contact that I was to complete a day visit!

    This bring me to today, my day visit starts tomorrow, tuesday December 14 and ends wednesday December 15. I am very excited and suprised that they still remembered me.

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    first i had been looking for summer internships and applied to the big name companies so i applied online (background info plus reasoning test and personality test)...two weeks later, i found out P&G was going to be represented at my university at a career fair so i asked my mom all she knew about the company and did some online research and was prepared for the career fair but ended up talking to the rep for only a few minutes because of the mass number of students wanting to talk with him...received an email from the rep almost two more weeks later and had an initial phone interview...a week later, i received a phone call from someone in a specific dpt with an actual intern offer, had the phone interview with the senior researcher the next day who offered to fly me to Cincinnati before we had even hung up! i'll be flying to Cincinnati in one week!
    most of the questions were behavioral and experience based, for example, tell me about your research experience, oh you had a research partner-if you ever had a problem, how did you solve it? what do you do outside of classes? i'd say definitely highlight leadership, time efficiency, and organization examples as well as well rounded-ness (i was able to expand on my volunteer teaching experience in Africa)
    all the interviewers were friendly and kept stopping to ask if i had questions and laid back
