Manufacturing Engineer Interview

Manufacturing Engineer
Alexandria, LA

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – Tell me about a situation where you encountered success and the method used. Tell me another situation where you took that method used to encounter success and reapplied it in a different setting.   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

Manufacturing Engineer Interview

Manufacturing Engineer
Boston, MA

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – Tell me one time you you had to use your skills in a sticky situation where people weren't meshing well.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – P&G asks the behavorial based questions. These include: tell me a time when you were in a difficult group and had to complete a project, tell me a time when you had multi-task, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Flat offer.

The process took a day - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in November 2008.

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – What would you do if you had an issue with a co-worker   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation as a new grad. There is a strict pay curve and benefits package. The only thing you can really negotiate is when you start.
