    Interview

    R1) written test R2) Face to face interview. Mostly behavioral questions asked R3) Less number of questions but a lot of probing for more details The final round was conduced by Associate directors from the same function that i applied for, so there level of grilling was higher.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I went to a university workshop by P&G and turned in my resume/applied online (which includes a reasoning test). Within the next couple of days I received an email informing me they wanted to do a phone interview. Within the following week, the interview was conducted. Approximately 3-5 days after the interview, I was informed I made it pass the first interview and they wanted me to attend the "Super Recruiting Day." The trip was about 3-4 weeks after the phone interview (Nov 14th-15th, I think.) and they said they would have another one during December. Keep in mind, these dates were for the "Super Recruiting Days" relating to the P&G Beauty Research and Development interns. The first day we just had dinner with our day hosts. The following day, they showed us around and had a lot of work shops. We also had our interview (2-3 people interviewers per room) and retook the reasoning test. Everyone was really friendly and there was A LOT OF FOOD!!!!!!

    Interview Questions

    • All questions for interns will be related to your resume. Know it well!! They will throw some unexpected situation-al?/behavioral questions, like "tell me about a time when ____________." Be sure to answer with CAR or STAR (same thing.) One of mine was about a time where I had to learn something difficult.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Santiago (Chile)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    P&G has a standard process where they send you an online test and then ask you over to a reasoning test. After that you go to two interviews and are made an offer. In my case, only after passing the test, I was told which areas they were looking for. None of them interested me. I accepted one anyway and interviewed for it.

    Interview

    The interview was very pleasant for both positions I applied for. I did two initial interviews for two intern positions, and I'm in the process of scheduling my second round interview at one of their plants. The interviewers were all great people to talk to. Make sure to ask them about their own work and the P&G company culture- they'll have a lot of good things to say.

    Interview

    The Steps: 1) Online cognitive assessment: both tests took around an hour and a half. The first was a fit test and the other was a cognitive assessment test. 2) Phone Interview: just the standard fit questions, why you're interested, etc. 3) In person interview and in person cognitive assessment: another 40 to one hour cognitive assessment
