Summer Intern Interview

Summer Intern
Cincinnati, OH

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

Interview Details – The interview was done over the phone. There was the technical manager, the business manager, and a research scientist all on the line at the same time. Pretty standard interview. They went through my CV and asked detailed questions about my publications, previous work experience etc... Many questions about research optimization, computational modeling, and math.

Interview Question – Lots of questions about research optimization and computational modeling which was difficult since my background was chemistry. Felt like they were asking the questions to see how I dealt with subjects outside of my area of expertise.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Summer intern. No negotiation.

Interviewed at Procter & Gamble

Interview Details – I applied online and then I was called for the reasoning test. In my opinion, these two steps weren't too difficult to pass. I was invited to Business Case study, but not as a part of the process of selection for summer internship. After about 3 weeks I was called for an interview.

Interview Question – It was nothing technical, they simply took your CV and asked you about what was in it.   Answer Question
