Manufacturing Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

Interview Details

The hiring process took about a month and included a visit to the plant where the internship would take place after the initial interview on campus. The site interview was a lot more technical as it was conducted by the engineers that were later on my managers. After the interview I took their hour long test and did a tour of the plant. The company really takes the hiring process seriously and that reflected on the quality of the new hires on the site.

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    First round is applying online. They will make you attach your resume but it is a good idea to attach a cover letter along with it that personalizes that position you're applying for to show that you've actually looked into it and care about the position. You will have to take a personality test and a logic test online as well. In order to continue, you must pass both. You will then either have an hour long phone interview or face-to-face interview depending on your location. P&G was on campus at my university, so I met with them in person at my school's career center for this step. This interview is completely behavioral questions that often start with "Tell me about a time when you encountered an failure/difficult person/etc..." They really focus on your ability to describe the background/context of the situation, what you did/your action, and the results/what you learned/what you would improve or change in the future. The final round is on site where you would be working full time. They have manufacturing plants all over the U.S. This will consist of a dinner with your P&G host and possibly some other candidates and their hosts the night before the interview day. This dinner is very informal and gives you an opportunity to ask questions about the company, position, and advice for the interview the next day. Your actual day will consist of a P&G breakfast with the candidates and hosts, an interview with 2-3 managers, another P&G test which focuses on numerical reasoning and logic, a plant tour, lunch with other candidates and P&G employees, and a city community tour with your host.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is pretty public. As far as my experience and knowledge goes, prospective employees must apply online through the main website, take two online tests, and submit their resume. Once your resume is deemed good enough and you pass the online tests, someone will call you and give you a phone interview. If you pass that stage, you are then usually asked to come in for a day visit. I'm not sure how different day visits work but mine consisted of a site tour, several one-on-one interviews, lunch with a coworker, and a written verbal and quantitative assessment. Definitely not a walk-in-the-park experience. By the end of the day you, are mentally tested very highly.

    I have been a technical interviewer for P&G for many years for both technicians and managers (engineers). P&G has a 2 step process. First, you must pass the online application with reasoning test. If you pass that, you would then be invited to come in for an interview where you will take a longer reasoning test and have at least 2 comprehensive interviews. After the interview, your results will be scored up from the interviewers and you will be notified shortly afterwards.

    Had to take two tests online for screening. One test that shows intelligent competence and another that determines your behaviors. After taking both these tests I got called up for a phone interview. Canned questions that ask for things like how would you solve this, or what would you do in a situation where...etc. Then I got asked in for a 1 day interview with three different people.
