Summer Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Cincinnati, OH

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

Interview Details – The interview was done over the phone. There was the technical manager, the business manager, and a research scientist all on the line at the same time. Pretty standard interview. They went through my CV and asked detailed questions about my publications, previous work experience etc... Many questions about research optimization, computational modeling, and math.

Interview Question – Lots of questions about research optimization and computational modeling which was difficult since my background was chemistry. Felt like they were asking the questions to see how I dealt with subjects outside of my area of expertise.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Summer intern. No negotiation.

Customer Business Development Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

Interview Details – Applied through college career website and within a week received a phone interview. I had a friend who had worked there in the past so knew somewhat what to expect. For the questions about me, they asked about what I was proud of, a difficult team situation and how you solved that, and other standard things. My friend told me that they would also ask about a company whose marketing strategy I admire, which they did. Be ready for that one and to explain why in a detailed and thoughtful way

Interview Question – They also asked about a company you think has a strong marketing strategy and to describe why   Answer Question

R&D Researcher Interview

Anonymous Employee
Cincinnati, OH

I applied through college or university and the process took 3+ months - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in August 2010.

Interview Details – A total of 2 interviews.
1) The first interview was a phone interview which focused on asking questions related to my resume: work experience, extracurricular activities, etc.
2) The second interview was face to face with 2 interviewers. Like the previous interview the questions were all related to the information on my resume. However I was asked a few questions regarding situations in which I worked on group projects, how did I step up as a leader and what did I accomplish. The interview lasted over 1 hr, yet wasn't a really tedious process.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time where you worked on a group project and encountered difficulties with one of the group members. What did you do to resolve this issue? What was accomplished afterwards?   View Answer

Supply Planner Interview

Anonymous Employee
Cincinnati, OH

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in August 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process was pretty standard. You have to take an online assessment and if you are selected from that you'll need to take another in-person written assessment. You'll then be contacted to a face-to-face interview. My interview was with a three person panel, I was told you are required to interview with three people whether its three different interviews or all at once as mine was.

Interview Question – I don't recall the most difficult. Most of the questions are pretty standard, but they do ask a lot of question. Be prepared to offer up situations where you used problem solving and leadership skills, ensure you can provide detailed information about your examples.   Answer Question
