    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    Pretty good. Got all the way to the final round, but did not receive offer. Easy and very friendly. In the end, I did not enjoy the CCA. Felt a bit unnatural and forced.

    Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    I failed the aptitude test. Once you apply online, they send the online aptitude test. Similar to what others stated, it goes over your risk taking, openness to change, leadership etc. Unfortunately it's a bit of a blind guess as to what to answer since you only get "Agree, Strongly Agree, Disagree, or Strongly Disagree." So when they make a statement like " People come to me to look for advice almost all of the time." Almost all of the time? What's the best answer? Strongly Agree? Agree? I'm sure they get hundreds of candidates per day and they see this as sorting out potential versus non-potential. But when you hear from others in Sales that the aptitude test at P & G is a deterrent to applying, you wonder what type of potential they are missing out on without ever even having a conversation with a candidate.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    Online application required, which involved an aptitude test. University career fair day was when one can talk to a recruiter. After about 4 to 5 weeks after the application, a phone call may come to schedule an interview. The suggested interview time was three days from the phone call. After the interview a quick (couple of days) response will be given.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    First round was an online assessment which focused on spatial questions. The second round was over the phone and was primary behavioral questions. The 3rd round was at the headquarters and consisted of an aptitude test and 2:1 interview. The aptitude test was very hard and shouldn't have been such a large weight in the process as it was after we were exhausted from flying in and networking all day.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    Took a few tests online before I was emailed about an over the phone interview. The interview felt very structured and I was disappointed by that. Maybe because it was the first round but didn't feel like they were trying to get to know me very much past my resume.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    After the initial application is submitted, candidates are redirected to take an online assessment. Questions make statements such as “I consider myself a leader, but will also let others take over.” So your first thought is to put Inaccurate because you don’t want to say you let others take the lead, but then does that mean you don’t consider yourself a leader, which was the first part of the statement? Basically every question makes opposite statements and you have to put inaccurate or accurate. Not sure how you can answer correctly....

    I received an email that I did not pass the assessment. Its computer generated (received email Sunday 2 AM) and it’s sad to me they don’t have a person review the assessment to see if an applicant missed the accurate/inaccurate questions due to wording issues and conflicting statements. It’s very odd to me that I recently got out of a very large University and was able to get all A’s in their Honors College but couldn’t pass this ‘simple’ assessment. Wording on these questions should be re-evaluated to avoid passing up over-qualified applicants.
