    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in May 2016.

    Interview

    First, I applied on their website. Minutes later, I got an invitation to do their online assessment. This is basically a test where they ask very general question, whether you prefer working in teams, or alone; the frequency of times in your life when you worked in a team, how often do you lead a team, how often did you have to actually solve a problem in a project, what you usually do when you face a conflict within a team, what would you do in a certain scenario etc. There are no right answers, you just need to answer honestly, and they will be looking for a certain trend and personality. This online assessment is not timed, so you can take your time in answering the questions.

    Then, I was invited to stage three of the recruitment process. This is a reasoning test (RT). The reasoning test comprises of three main sections: Numerical Reasoning, Logic-Based Reasoning, and Figural Reasoning. The first section comprises of simple mathematical questions involving percentages and quick calculations. Logic-Based reasoning are questions where you are given a paragraph to read and then asked one question to answer from the text, this tests your ability to draw conclusions from a text, no hidden ideas though. The Figural Reasoning section is basically a bunch of shapes and patterns that you have to figure out and then complete a set or figure out what shapen will occur next. Overall, this RT tests how you manage time more than anything, you only get 65 minutes and that's barely enough to finish 35 out of the 40 questions that are in the test.

    The final stage of the hiring process is the interview. I was lucky enough to get invited two days after the RT back to the HQ to do my interviews. I got 3 interviews in a row and the interviews lasted 2 and a half hours in total. Of course, they ask the most obvious questions first about why P&G, why not seek a career in academia, and all the basic questions. Then they ask a set of behavioural questions to find out what you're made of. They ask you to give situations where you ahd to do "so and so".

    Answer in the CAR method: Context of the situation and the challenge you faced, Action you took to solve the problem, Results of your action and the overall outcome.

    Be careful, you should not lie about these situations. The reason why you should not lie is because some questions may be introductions to other questions. If you lie about coaching a team of 7 in troubleshooting parachute problems, you better have an answer to what techniques you used when you had trouble opening your parachute at 1000 ft above the ground. So your best bet is to mention situations that have actually occurred in your life; these could be from school, university, work, life, anything really. Just sit a day or two before the interview in a quiet area, and try to jot down a number of situations where you think you displayed some powers of leadership, networking, quick decision making, being a team player....etc.

    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.

    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.
