Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in July 2016.

Interview

P&G's hiring process is extensive, focused on selecting only extraordinary candidates for positions at the historically successful company. Thus, they begin their selection with a series of in-depth personality and intelligence tests designed to see if an individual is a good fit for the industry/organization. This is followed by a phone screen, which consists of behavioral interview questions. Lastly is the final interview phase, consisting of more difficult behavioral questions. After this comprehensive interview process, an offer will be extended by P&G.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Columbus, OH) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Took the PEAK assessment and the figural reasoning test first. Waited about 2 weeks and received an email I would be proceeding to the next stage which was the initial interview. The interview was enjoyable-very conversational and relaxed. A few days later I was emailed to take an on campus assessment. I did not hear back for a little over a week after the assessment. I was notified that I passed the initial interview and the final assessment but that spots were limited for the role and that a couple of my responses during the interview put me behind the top candidates who moved on to the day tours and final interviews.

    3 interviews in total. My case is quite special that i do not have a face-to-face interview, but all 3 of them are held online. All questions are: Tell me about a time when you... They focus much on leadership and data-driven skills. The interviews are not stressful, all based on your experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Casablanca (Morocco)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Started the application around three months ago online, and took the online success drivers test couple of days after i submitted my application. Then around a month later, they contacted me and I had to travel to their office to take a paper based reasoning text. On the same day, I received an email saying that I passed the reasoning test and been invited to take\schedule a behavioral based interview, but they didn't schedule for me the 1st interview until a month later. the 1st interview was 1:1 went very well and felt that i did well. However, I was surprised that they did not have any available internship positions in the department that I applied for "finance & accounting" and they offered me if I were interested in Marketing; I was happy to accept it as i don't mind trying out something new and far away of my field of expertise "finance". Anyways, I was contacted 2 days after the 1st interview in order to schedule further interviews with them with the marketing team. the questions asked in the 2nd interview that was 2:1 were exactly the same as those i ve been asked in the 1st one. it's been almost a week now since i took the 2nd interview and still waiting to figure out if i ve been hired or still need to go through further interviews... However. I think the whole delay in their hiring process where i am applying from is due to the large amount of candidates who are competing with me for the same position...

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Warsaw (Poland)).

    Interview

    I applied for a post of an Intern at IT department. Upon finishing my application I was given managerial aptitude test and recruiter contacted me the next day to schedule a reasoning test.
    It was kenexa style quiz very similar to one given as a sample before interview, but reasonably more difficult. After passing that test I was invited for an interview. It was a typical fit interview, even though I did my research and tried to exhibit desired qualities, I wasn't invited for the final round.
