    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

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 Questions
    • 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
