    Test are pretty straight forward, but when you get to second interview make sure that you go over board on your experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through the P&G website and University Recruiting. Completed the pre-screening questionnaire. Was preselected for a recruitment dinner prior to the career fair and spoke with current employees. Spoke to them at the career fair the following day briefly. Attended an on-campus interview and selected for second round on-site interview. Stayed in Iowa City and went to dinner with newer employees the night prior. Went to breakfast with my on-campus interviewer. The following day, I took the IQ exam and went through two 1 on 1 interviews, a plant tour, Q&A sessions, and final interview to wrap up the day and deliver the results. Very efficient process and people were very nice.

    Interview Details

    Met with a representative at a career fair. Received a call later in the day requesting an on-campus interview later in the week. First interview was a basic screening- a few simple behavioral questions but mostly just a discussion about the position. Had another in-person interview a month or so later when P&G returned to campus. Hour-long grilling of behavioral questions. Typical stuff about leadership/team experience, etc.

    Senior Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Starts with an online assessment, followed by a phone interview. If these two critical sections are passed, you'll be invite for an site visit in which case you'll be required to take another written assessment (similar, but slightly longer than the online test). You'll then have a 2:1 interview with members of the site leadership team, in which case they'll ask similar behavioral questions to the phone interview. These questions are all based on experience and how you've handled different scenarios and situations in the past.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time in which you've had to work with someone that didn't see eye to eye   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very little negotiations as a new employee out of school coming to a large company with standardized means of compensating employees

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Once you send in your resume and cover letter, a recruiter will contact you and give you documents to study. They have a lengthy interview process and want you to learn their specific 3-step method to answering questions where you talk about Context, Action then Result. Just memorize 10 or so personal experience scenarios and rehearse explaining them as CAR then adapt them to all the questions. I think professional, if somewhat predictable, and well-rehearsed answers are what they are looking for so don't get too creative.

    Interview Questions
    • Their questions are really not very unexpected. They actually give you a full list of questions, but if you have CAR down it adapts to everything. Although you should also take time to learn about the company as there will be some trivia on that.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    The process focuses too much on what school you attended and "leadership" as though everyone aspires to be CEO. The screening questionnaire is designed not to assess people and give them a reasonable opportunity to show their value, but as "gotcha" questions with certain key words or phrases desired as answers.

    Interview Questions
    • Give me an example of a situation where you took leadership and solved a problem.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't one, but I learned that before I interviewed, they had already offered the job to someone else. That person declined their offer, so I was then offered.
