Interview

There were one online test and followed with one writing exam (math, logical tests and language test). Afterwards there were 5 interview happened. Each interview led by different department heads.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in September 2015.

    Interview

    You have to pass an online assessment in order to even be noticed. (pass/fail)
    First is a phone screen. (pass/fail)
    Then they fly you to Cincinnati to take an in-person written exam (pass/fail) and two individual hour long interviews.
    Almost ALL questions for phone screen and in-person are behavioral.
    In-person they have a checklist of questions asking different aspects of your behavior.
    They are extremely picky on a specific type of personality has always worked for them in the past.
    I went with 12 people to the final round and only 2 got job offers. You are trying to be the less than one percent. Good luck.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Applied online and took a reasoning test two months before I was initially contacted for a 1:1 phone interview which went very well. STAR/CAR questions are a favorite on this interview. A week later I was contacted to interview at the HQ in Cincinnati, OH. This consisted of an in-person reasoning test very early in the morning followed by two back-to-back, 1:1, one hour interviews with directors at P&G. These interviews were somewhat informal and consisted of a few STAR/CAR questions along with some situational role play. The night before the interview, someone took me out for dinner. Immediately following the interview someone took me out for lunch. The lunch/dinner hosts were very friendly and were open to answering any questions you have about the firm. They claim that they have no say in the hiring process, but I was cautious anyways. Overall, the most difficult part of the interview was the reasoning test. I studied for a whole week prior to the interview, which proved to be very helpful. I had a perfect score on the practice test, yet the real test was difficult in comparison. There are many websites you can visit that offer practice tests that are very similar to the real reasoning test. I recommend spending at least a few days studying. About a week after my interview, I was offered a full-time position.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in November 2014.

    Interview

    Application through the Day in a Life of a Finance and Accounting Manager Scheme. You send a cover letter (really optional, unless you have odd gaps in your CV) and a CV. Then there are some odd questions about achievements in school etc, and then a set of shape based IQ questions - Raven's Matrices.

    I then had a phone interview, for which I was given 24 hours notice. I imagine this would have been negotiable if necessary - they suggested an interview 1 hour after they called, which I pushed forward to the next day.

    I was then invited to interview. The first day is technically non-assessed and consists of some talks by senior staff, some role plays, and a 2 hour case study. You then present the case study to senior members of staff. There is then a dinner in the evening - get a good night's sleep before hand it is a VERY long day! (8:30am to 10:30pm, talking pretty much solidly).

    The next day there are repeats of the IQ tests, plus verbal and numerical reasoning. I believe these are usually done the previous day. If you fail these you are sent home.

    Then you have 2 interviews. The first, in the morning, is with one interviewer, and the second, in the afternoon is with two.

    Both are fairly similar, competency based interviews. I was asked about the most difficult challenge i had faced, and a time when I had failed, as well as various other normal ones - when I had led a team etc etc.
