    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    Negative experience with unrelated questions. Have rushed me to interview marking me feel that there was a serious interest, causing me being late for work. I never felt such tension and just interviewing out of paper. No HR knowledge whatsoever, nothing about accomplishment in terms of sales revenue but strictly following some bullets points. You can't appropriately evaluate the persons skills sets. Ironically I sold houses, luxury items in the past but according the to the interviewer I can't sell cleaning products. What a joke

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    Was called in for an "interview prep session" with a P&G employee. He told me the structure of the interview - 5 behavioral and 2 hypothetical questions. First round on campus interview was scheduled a week or two later. I was interviewed by two people and the interview went well. After the interview, a reassuring e-mail was sent telling me the interview was positive and that my file would be shared with the hiring department, who would contact me if a match was made within 60 days. I was also invited to a info session and dinner with P&G. I was never contacted even after following up a couple of times.

    • Describe a time you improved a process, How would you deal with conflict within a team, Describe a time you took a leadership role, etc. Typical behavioral questions.   Answer Question
