    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    Applied on the company's career website, did the online success drivers assessment, then( about ten days later) got an invite to the on-site reasoning exam, went over to the site, an upscale office building overlooking the Nile, signed in at the front desk and sat at the reception with around 20 other hopefuls waiting for the exam to start. About 20 minutes later, a lady came out and ushered us into a board room where we were to take the exam. The exam was divided into 3 sections, math section, verbal and a visual pattern identification section, 40 questions in 65 minutes. The math questions are pretty straightforward, mostly calculating percentages, rates and averages. The verbal section takes a little more sustained concentration, can get tricky and the answers can seem close, had to reread a couple of paragraphs after skimming through. The visual pattern questions are also straightforward, although i had to go with my intuition on a couple of them. The next day I received an email saying I had passed the exam and that they would proceed with the selection process and contact me shortly. I haven't heard from them yet but I read on their website that this phase can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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 Questions
    • 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    Initial screening + 3 interviews. Very objective and data based, focused on proving one's skills based on past experiences. Be prepared to talk about what you specifically did in those past cases and be able to quantify the outcome. Some questions for analytical thinking like Google's "how many golf balls fit in a school bus?" - don't worry so much about the answer but on having a clear thinking path to get there.

    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview process is rather straight forward. The application is followed by an invitation to take an online test (logic test and success drivers). There are many examples available on the net and although the test is not hard, it's advisable to spend a bit of tome going through examples of the logic/reasoning test and reading up on the success drivers. Same goes for the written test, which is not particularly hard, but one needs to be fast to be able to finish. I had 2 interviews, which were very pleasant and fully success driver based, no marketing questions. Answering questions with the CAR model (Context, Action, Result) is certainly appreciated .

    Junior Brand Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    All of the steps were clear on forehand; they have a very elaborate 5 step-process. Everyone passes the first Step, which then takes you to the second Step: taking a whole bunch of tests which look like IQ-tests. After doing this, you have to be lucky in order to get to Step 3. I've never heard back from them; I didn't even get an e-mail saying I didn't go to Step 3. Really bad communication if you ask me.

    Interview Questions
    • Logical reasoning in the Step 2-tests was pretty hard. It was a lot harder than the practice-questions and harder in general than I expected.   Answer Question
