    Researcher Baby Care Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Procter & Gamble Technical Centers in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter had seen my previous internships paperwork; saw some interest. The panel interview was the hardest; ended up I met one of the guys before. They split hairs when they couldn't get the answer out of me they wanted. It was difficult to read what they're looking for. P&G has a very odd work culture; if they think you're not cut out for it at the onset you may as well say whatever you want during the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Procter & Gamble Technical Centers.

    Interview Details

    The interview asked for proposed solutions to real-world problems. Of course, this was after an initial review of the CV. The repeating question was “explain” and “why”. The silence waiting for the answer or “go on” + silence was killer…but if you keep cool and answer as honestly as possible, you’ll be fine.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Procter & Gamble Technical Centers in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Reasoning Test
    If you successfully complete the online questionnaire you’ll be invited to complete the Procter & Gamble Global Reasoning Test at an office location, or on campus during a company recruitment event.
    This multiple-choice test lasts for 65 minutes and contains 40 multiple-choice questions. This test has three sections: (1) Numerical Reasoning, (2) Logic-based Reasoning, or (3) Figural Reasoning questions. A calculator and extra paper are provided.
    As an example of Numerical Reasoning:
    1. In 2001, a company marketed 730,000 units of its product. In 2001 its yearly volume was 50% of its volume for 2004. The 2004 volume represents how many units for each of the 365 days of 2004?
    A. 5,000 units B. 4,000 units C. 2,000 units D. 1,100 units E. 1,000 units Correct answer: B
    As an example of Logic-based Reasoning:
    2. Purchasing can have a significant effect on an organization’s total profit. However, the success of a purchasing function relies on competent buyers and a purchasing manager who employs systematic purchasing methods and implements technological advances. If an organization’s profitability is in jeopardy, the efficiency and skill of its purchasing function may determine whether it operates at a profit or at a loss. As such, the purchasing function bears a significant amount of the responsibility for an organization’s profit, and, whenever an organization strives to produce profit, it will expend the effort required to hire capable and qualified buyers as well as a knowledgeable, intelligent purchasing manager. From the information given above, it can be validly concluded that:
    A. If an organization’s profitability is not in jeopardy then the competence of its purchasing function will not determine whether it operates at a profit or at a loss. B. There are at least some purchasing functions that are not responsible for a significant amount of an organization’s profit. C. A non-purchasing function will not bear significant responsibility for the profit of an organization. D. An organization whose profitability is in jeopardy may depend on the efficiency and skill of its purchasing function to determine whether it operates at a profit or at a loss. Correct answer: D
    Recommended preparation would be to answer sample GMAT questions under timed conditions. Work as fast and as accurately as you can. This test is not negatively graded, so DO guess if you need to, or if you are running out of time.
    Note: The Reasoning Test replaces the P&G Problem Solving Test. If you have taken the Problem Solving Test in the past, you are still required to take the new Reasoning Test.
    Interviews
    If you successfully pass all the testing stages of the Procter & Gamble assessments, you'll be invited to an interview at an office or possibly on campus. Most interviews last 45 - 60 minutes and typically involve up to two senior leaders from the function you are applying to.
    Most interviews are competency based and you should prepare for competency based questions about your academic and personal history.
    Procter & Gamble are looking for evidence of what they call “Success Drivers” at the interview. These are specific core competencies that define how P&G people succeed in today's business environment. They are also how P&G measures performance in the Company.
