    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through college or university and the process took 1 month - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in May 2014. I was able to apply through college recruiting. I didn't have much finance background, so they didn't ask any technical questions, so much of the interview was aptitude, verbal and logical reasoning and why I wanted to work as a Consultant at Procter & Gamble.

    Personally I did use The Ultimate Career Interview App for iOS to learn and prepare for the Procter & Gamble Interview Questions and most of the questions where in the app. For me it was very helpful to see the questions and from then on I prepared my answers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Bloomington, IN) in October 2013.

    Interview

    First met with P & G recruiters on campus and started the interviewing process online by submitting my resume and taking some initial assessment tests that included a personality/leadership type survey as well as an IQ like reasoning test. On their website and according to the recruiters P&G puts a lot of emphasis on these screening tests.

    The next step was a formal interview on campus in early October. The recruiters had us out to dinner the night before to get comfortable with the interviewers and make the next day less nerve racking which gives them a better idea of who you are as a person because they asked a lot of behavioral oriented questions.

    Currently I am waiting to hear back from P&G to see if I get an offer to visit their HQ in Cinci, which is the final step in the internship interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Orlando, FL) in February 2013.

    Interview

    There was one in person interview, 2 phone interviews, and an in person ride along day in the field, and lastly a written test. It was a long process but was very thorough. As a hiring manager now, I understand that a lot is dependent on flexibility of interviewers for timing. All interviews are done by sales, not HR.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in November 2012.

    Interview

    2 rounds - one phone interview and one 2-day in person interview/tour of headquarters/etc. Had to apply online, which included a personality test and cognitive reasoning test. Online phone interview 1 month after applying followed by trip to Cincinnati 1 month after phone interview. Interviewers were so nice and made me feel like they really wanted me to come to P&G. Another in-person cognitive reasoning test was given at the final interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Was contacted through email by a recruiter, who scheduled a phone interview with a manager in the field I applied within. Phone interview was conducted 2 weeks later where many situational questions were asked-45 min, questions were negatively based (ex:tell me about a time when you failed) Was contacted the next business day regarding setting up an in-person interview in Cincinnati as well as taking another skills/IQ test. Interview conducted by 2 people, included questions from all areas of behavioral and experience and was around 1hr 30min. Questions were all positively based (ex: Tell me about a time when you led a group to success) Testing takes about 1hr 10 min, proctored by a recruiter. While you are testing, people do walk in and out of the room which is distracting, and in my case a maintenance man was banging right outside of the room during the entire test. Was told that I would be contacted in 2 weeks or less either way, however was not contacted at all by time limit. Recruiters are very nice, interviewing managers smile a lot, they do their best to put you at ease by talking about more personal things about themselves and inviting you to do the same. If you do not give the STAR answers that they would prefer, they ask more about each experience until they receive the answer they want. My advice would be to remember that they are still there to evaluate you, not be your friend.

    All behavioral question. Tell me about a time when you had solved a problem/lead a team....
    Make sure that you STICK to their format situation-action-result. I tried to be as thorough as I could but I guessed it was not a match for them.
    Do your home work and tried to answer the question before the interview as if you were in one.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)).

    Interview

    Very easy and fast.

    Applied online and was invited to take an online reasoning test.
    Very shortly afterwards I was invited to come by to the Dublin office to take another reasoning test. (written this time). It was a 65min test similar to GMAT questions. I took this test with another candidate at the same time.

    Within two days I received an email congratulating me for passing the test and inviting me for an interview at the office with two managers. In hindsight I didn't prepare sufficiently for the interview and some questions caught me off-guard. Needless to say that I didn't pass to the next round.

    I feel the emphasize a lot on their PEAK performance factors and the standard STAR answers structure.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (London, ON (Canada)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Before you get to the interview you have to apply online and do an online screening test which consists of about an hour of personal questions about values. This is followed by a small reasoning test about 20 minutes long which involves rotating shapes and finding patterns in given information.

    1st round interview: 40 minute phone call with 7-10 behavioural questions with 2 representatives from P&G. Also have to write what P&G calls a "reasoning test" which is a 65 minute long hand-written multiple choice test designed to test your logic. The test consisted of 3 sections; first mental math, second pulling important information out of given paragraphs, third a test involving rotating shapes and counting patterns similar to that of a GMAT test.
