Interview Details –
Initial online application - normal bio & experience stuff, followed by 2 assessments: one a skills driver and one a personality driver.
Pass the assessments and you'll have either a phone interview or an on-campus interview (the vast majority of hires are MBA or UG students) with a person in the function you are applying to, typically someone who also graduated from your university/college.
Interview process consists of behavioral questions designed to elicit responses showing your fit against P&G's 3 Success Drivers: Power of People, Power of Minds and Power of People. All interview responses are expected to be in the CAR format: circumstance or conflict, action you took, and results achieved.
Based upon performance in the first interview, top candidates are brought back to the General Office in Cincinnati for a second round interview and assessments. The assessments are pencil and paper versions similar to, but slightly more difficult than, the online assessments - calibrating reasoning and analytical skills. The final interview is a panel interview with Associate Marketing Directors - with the same Behavioral question structure and topics (Success Drivers).
A Majority of applicants hired come through the company's intern program, which recruits 1st year MBA candidates from top schools across the country.

Interview Details – The process focuses too much on what school you attended and "leadership" as though everyone aspires to be CEO.

After I passed the tests, I was invited to do a phone interview (approximately 1.5 hr, both behavioral and technical) with the recruiter at P&G. The interview went very well. I was asked to take another test (similar to those online, but it was composed of numerical, logical and verbal parts) on site in the local office. After successfully completing the tests, they offered to join the program and flew me to CIncinnati in August. I was interviewed again by 2 senior employees on site.
