    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    It starts with the "on line test". Do not take this lightly! It evaluates your reasoning skills and your potential as a manager/leader. If you fail the test, your interviewing process stops before it starts. And you will have to wait another year before you can take it again!
    Since I was an experienced candidate (not a right-out-of-college grad), I did an initial phone interview, then I was asked to do a site interview. I was flown out to the site, did a series of 1:1 conversations with other managers (including breakfast and lunch), then was given a tour (where I asked lots of questions), then a 2:1 interview with the plant manager and one of the Ops Manager. Within one hour, I was given an offer (a letter stating my salary). Interestingly they knew there wasn't an immediate opening just yet, so I had to agree that I would be ok not knowing my exact position until I started my employment. (2 months later). I stated that I" understand", and that I would let them know my decision within two days. From there I did a drug test, and flew home. The whole process from start to finish was 4 weeks, and overall I think it was very fair and well executed.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Online/On-Site Technical Test:
    Can't study for it. Kind of like the ACT or something. Just competency.

    On-Campus Interview:
    Asked non-technical performance/behavioral based questions.
    "Tell us about a time you had a difficult co-worker. How did you resolve the conflicts"
    "Tell us about a time when you had to change directions suddenly in a project course"
    "etc"
    Really it's a company with strong values and they are looking for people with good personalities and character. So their interview process is all about filtering people through to see who can drive results, who can have fun, and who is competent enough to compete within.

    Site-Visit and Interview:
    Consisted of several interviews with upper management. Asked very similar questions to on-campus. Trying to learn about you, your styles, your personality. Just trying to see if you somehow slipped through the cracks and just making sure they liked you. Not too bad, just was myself and it worked out pretty well. Iowa City has a very nice workforce and the environment is great, clean, and fun.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview is 50% personal questions about your resume, 50% behavior. After my initial contact with the company at the college career fair, and having completed the online application, a recruiter requested a 1:1 interview. However, I guess I didn't perform well enough on their competency screening (which is like puzzles) so I wasn't offered a further round. I would recommend you take your time on it.

    Interview Details

    I talked to P&G at my university career fair, and they asked me for a one-on-one interview the next day. The recruiter initially asked me about the things on my resume and basic behavioral questions. About a week later, they called me for an on site interview with two leaders of the plant. I needed to take an hour long skills test which wasn't so difficult, and then the leaders asked me behavioral questions.
