Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee in Bucharest (Romania)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Bucharest (Romania)) in February 2013.

Interview

There are quite a few steps in an interview process at P&G:
- an online test that will ask for certain competencies that the company values (leadership, influencing skills, determination, analysis etc)
- a reasoning and numeracy test taken on site
- 3 interviews with 3 different managers (they might ask the same questions because they don't know what each other has asked)

All the interviews are designed around competency based questions. You will be asked to describe situations and events when you've dealt with a specific problem, what was the context, what did you do, and what was the outcome. The key thing here is to speak about "you", not about "we". If you were part of a team that did something great, use your experience.

Each step will only happen if the previous step has been successfully completed by the candidate.
After the 3rd interview, if you get the call, the next meeting is to discuss the offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Islamabad, Islamabad (Pakistan)).

    Interview

    Basically all interviews were behavioral. Though it may vary in some cases, sometimes the interviewer is more inclined towards judging a candidate technically so there is a a good chance of getting one technical interview.

    The interviews are pretty long (1hour) so it would be wise to take a long sleep before interviewing and going in fresh.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Madrid (Spain)

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Madrid (Spain)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First I filled in the assessment tests online (personality/numerical/patterns & shapes). I would really recommend answering the personality questions based on the P&G values on their website, as otherwise you'll get rejected after this round. Next I had a phone interview that lasted about an hour, with the typical "tell me about a time when". This interview was quite stressful, they really put you under a lot of pressure by interrupting you often and asking you for A LOT of detail on past work experiences (i.e. but why did you do it this way? but why is this relevant?). It's really important that you're able to emphasize leadership skills in all the examples you give. I honestly thought I was rejected after this round, but I went on to the final round which was two interviews on skype, each lasting an hour in Spanish and with basically the same exact questions as in the first round. Here the interviewers were much nicer I thought, it didn't feel as stressful as the first round. Within two weeks I was informed that I had been accepted.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online, took the personality test and a pattern test. About 45 days after I got contacted by Procter to have a phone interview. I was interviewed by a leader of the area, it was a 30 mins chat mainly about what I had done in the past (CV) and a couple of behavioral questions.
    The day after they informed me I passed the interview and I got invited for a test at the P&G offices. The test is just as the sample test in the website, you have to focus on answering everything as fast as you can, leaving questions that seem hard or long to the very end. You can also guess with no penalization. Just after completing the test they gave me the results.
    The next week I had 3 interviews, one hour each, with a different people from the area and my future manager. Be prepared to many behavioral questions. The interviewers are very nice and they make you feel comfortable with the whole process.
