    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. 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

    Honestly, it was a very comfortable interview process. The interviewer allowed for a very calm and friendly atmosphere and was open to answer any questions I had about the company as a whole. Overall, the interview process was great. I passed the first interview but something went wrong with my application and so I was not contacted for a second.

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Online application process is tedious but used appropriately. After you pass the online exam and submission a phone interview follows. Next is an in person interview and then a final "marathon" interview at P&G with 4 to 5 people lasting upwards of 6 hours. The whole process takes about 3 months.
