    Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fayetteville, AR

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Fayetteville, AR) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Panel interviews with typical behavioral questions plus inquiries on specific ideas on growing the business. Very businesslike and not particularly warm as interviewers were also pausing to take notes. When I left I didn't really know if I had done poorly or great and didn't get any feedback for three plus weeks.
    i was well prepared for the interview with specific questions on what success would look like in 6 months on the job, and what the person previously in the role might tell me.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time where you were given a tough assignment w/o a great deal of direction. How did you manage and what was the outcome?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was actually much simpler than previous ones. They exceded my salary request and were generous with vacation, etc.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Warsaw (Poland)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    After an online application there was the success drivers online screen. About a moth later I was invited to write an in-person reasoning test which was quite easy. The results were passed to the candidates right after the test. Within a couple of hours I was invited to the first interview with a senior employee. It lasted ~40mins and consisted of the well-known behavioral questions. After two days I got a phone call inviting me to the second interview - this one was similar to the first round but conducted by three members of management level, it lasted 1,5hr. Although I felt it might have gone better from my side, I was hoping my profile and relevant experience will get me in, but after six days received a rejection email. That's quite harsh, especially after such a long and complicated process :)

    Interview Questions

    • Even though I was prepared for most of the questions asked, I got quite stressed during the 2nd round interview - I guess the best option would be to learn the answers by heart ;)   3 Answers

    P&G follows couple of hiring processes worldwide and just hire people at entry level.
    One way of recruiting is to do special programs with Universities (either joining job fairs or exclusive events) to detect top students and then follows two exams (a reasoning test and a psychometric one). If scores on both tests are above target, they proceed with an screening interview and then into a panel interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in April 2011.

    Interview

    A strange interview process. I was written and given an set of times to choose from, and told to complete an online test. Upon selecting the time, my interview took place at a University? Seems they wanted to just fit me into their recruitment schedule...
    Fine interview, interviewers were very stoic, not an easy crowd to get a smile out of.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you had to do something you didn't want to do.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Seemed like a very hierarchical company, very by the book. Not interested in working at places that seem afraid of change.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in February 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a phone interview (it was supposed to be in person, but weather caused transportation issues for the interviewers). The questions were all behavioral/fit questions -- tell me about a time when ... etc. etc.

    The second part of the interview was a test - much like the GMAT but with spacial orientation, IQ sort of stuff.

    The third round of the interview was another phone interview with more behavioral questions and specific questions about brands I liked, why they work well, advertising campaigns that are successful etc.

    I did not receive the offer (probably because at the end of the day I'm not that committed to brand management and was shaky on my brand knowledge).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in November 2009.

    Interview

    Very through process. I went through 4 interviews, an IQ test, a phone interview and and online test! The interviews all run through the same overall flow, but it gets more "loose" as you get closer to top-management. Overall it was a quite frustrating process, since the interviews ran for over 2 months and I only got very little feedback along the way - and when my application was denied at the final interview.
