Group Finance Manager Interview

Group Finance Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in April 2013.

Interview Details – Online test (behavior questions and cognitive/pattern identification), Off site paper and pencil test (read comprehension, math/problem solving, and cognitive/pattern identification) in 65 minutes, 30 minute phone chat (very basic behavioral, just checking to see if you are who you say you are), then interviewed with 5 VPs in one day, most behavioral questions/ walk me through your resume. Took from February to late April to complete entire process.

Interview Question – Nothing that hard really. One interviewer played hopscotch going back and forth in time on my resume by company, role, project, to tell me a situation when..., to personal history and interests outside work, back to resume, drilled down on a project I did, to what I know about P&G, etc. Just tried to keep me off balance and see how I could handle a pressure situation. Interviewers were very nice.   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

Plant Technician Interview

Plant Technician

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 7 months - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in August 2013.

Interview Details – After a little while of holding on to your resume, they call you to set up a test. You are scheduled to take a multiple choice test with about 30 other people. Few pass. Then you wait. And wait. Finally, if you passed, they will schedule an interview with 2 people. They ask many what would you do questions. It takes about an hour. Then you wait. And wait. If you are lucky, they will call you back for a second interview. This interview is basically the same as the first, with the same what would you do questions, only a tad bit more specific. Finally, if you advanced through that hurdle, you will get another phone call. They will offer a job. You go in for a hair drug test. You wait a month. Then you get a 2 to 3 week away start date, that will be the same as a few others. Good luck. The entire process for me took half a year.

Interview Question – Name a time you failed at work, and what you did to succeed   Answer Question

Intern Interview

Intern

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in March 2013.

Interview Details – Met with recruiters at a national career fair. Spoke at length with one lady who took my resume and told me to apply online and return the next day. Was scheduled for an interview that same day. Interview was basic behavioral, a lot of questions exactly from this webpage which was cool. Interviewer was sort of uncaring/condescending and I do not know why.

Interview Question – Tell me more about your independent research.   Answer Question

Summer Intern Interview

Summer Intern
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.
