    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Maths test, 1 screening interview, 1 panel interview, and two interviews over the phone. Hard to communicate with HR. Never knew who I was speaking to. Someone in HR also forgot who I was. Not very personal. Process took so long I took another offer from a firm. People who interviewed me however were very friendly and helpful.

    Interview

    Long and complex. Aside from the typical situational interview, there is a logic and quantitative test that must be taken prior to job offer. Other than that, the questions are pretty straight forward and nothing out of the ordinary. P&G focuses on the CAR model, so prepare your answers following the expected response format of context, actions and results.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was a long and arduous process. It took 3 months, 5 interviews, and 2 hours of testing to complete. I got a lot of positive feedback throughout the process and felt like I would fit in well in the culture. PG, even now, would be a place where I imagine anyone would retire from. However after I completed the entire process I received a form letter rejecting my application. It seemed like an easy process that I thought I was navigating successfully but I would suggest this is harder than it seems. Unfortunately, I can't even begin to imagine what went wrong after receiving so much positive feedback during my interviews.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Austin, UT) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process involves a behavioral aspect to it as well as a situational aspect to it. With the situational aspect, they will ask questions such as, "If you were a CFO looking to expand a certain part of the business to Indonesia, what would you have to consider in starting it?"

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I sent in an application online then received a link to take two tests (one scenario-based and the other logical/shape-based). I gave a recruiter my resume at my school’s career fair and let them know that I had already applied.

    Then I was selected for an on-campus interview (behavioral, situational, and 2 technical questions). After passing the interview, I was asked to take a test at a testing center (45 questions on a computer, they send you a practice test but the actual test is a bit harder).

    After passing the test, I was called by a recruiter to go to Cincinnati for two days. In Cincinnati, I had a dinner with a p&g employee to ask questions. The next day, you meet with other interviewees (not all are going for the same position). My recommendation is to be very friendly, introduce yourself to the other interns and get to know them (they may be future colleagues and talking to other interviewees will help ease nerves). I had 2 back-to-back interviews (behavioral, situational, and 2 technical) with extremely experienced, very friendly finance directors. After, another finance employee took me to lunch. I received a call a few hours after the interviews with the internship offer.
