Marketing Interview

Marketing
Cincinnati, OH

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in December 2010.

Interview Details – After online assessments, there are panel interviews and an in-person assessment test is given. It's structured very much like the SATs and the GMATs where there is a quantitative and verbal section. Not difficult but it is timed, exactly like the GMATs.

Interview Question – Most questions were not difficult at all. They were more behavioral and asked you in the format of CAR what you have done in the past. Only challenge is that you'll be interviewed by a group of managers who will put pressure on you by asking question after question for more than an hour. It's all a matter of endurance by the time you get to the end of it.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Salary was low but there was no negotiation involved.

Interview Details – Applied online with CV, took an online aptitude test, then a pen-and-paper test, followed by two rounds of interviews.

Interview Details – first you apply online, then you receive an email with a link to answer a questionair based on personal qualities, background, etc. If your profile matches you are invited to go and do a test to evaluare your analytical skills. Then you wait at their offices for a while and they will tell you if you passed the exam. If so, you are scheduled an interview with a recruiter (not necessarily from HR or the function you applied for) for a first screening. If you pass that stage you are called to go to further interviews, it can either be three separate interviews with different managers or one or to pannel interviews with 2-3 managers. if you pass this stage you will receive an offer.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in January 2011.

Interview Details – The moment I sat down, the interviewer told me that it would definitely not be a stress interview. However, while he asks the questions; Once he asked, then I answered exactly a logically right answer, Then he Changed the question, and said to me "I didnt ask you this, I asked ..." He had changed the question. I got nervous when I couldnt say "No you didnt ask me this". It was obviously a stress measured interview

Very Difficult Interview

Marketing Interview

Marketing

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in October 2010.

Interview Details – First, the online application process was timed and lasted about one hour. I had to pass this in order to get an interview. This consisted of situational questions and a reasoning section that was like an IQ test. Ex: which shape comes next in this pattern. I passed this and then met with my interviewer for my interview which lasted about 1 hour. She was very nice and the questions were very hard. Some of the questions they asked were: 1. Describe a time where you had very little resources and were able to successfully reach a goal. 2. Describe a time where you used your expertise in an area to solve a problem. 3. Describe a time where you had to change the direction of a project at the last minute.
Then, after that (same day) I had to take a timed test which had a reading section, math, and reasoning section. I did not have enough time and had to go through and fill in the remaining answers.

Interview Question – Describe a time where you were responsible for the direction of a project and the outcome.   Answer Question
