    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison, WI
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Madison, WI).

    Interview

    Quite long and very thorough; was required to take two tests (one online and one written at a testing sight) and two interviews (both over the phone). Interviews and tests were challenging but fair. Despite that, I had an overall positive experience interviewing with the company even though I didn't get a job offer.

    Consumer and Market Knowledge Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied to P&G online through the company's career website in January 2017. I received an email for an online assessment in February, had a phone interview in March, followed by another proctored exam similar to the GMAT or GRE shortly afterwards.

    The first online assessment was rather easy, and asked a mix of quantitative and qualitative logical reasoning questions. It also asked "identify patterns" questions.

    The phone interview was with a CMK brand manager and took about a half hour. P&G has a format known as CAR which is basically their own STAR interview format. I had a phenomenal experience with her, and she seemed genuinely impressed and interested in my interview.

    Lastly, I took another online assessment almost identical to the first one, however this was at an actual testing center at my university. The questions and format were so similar I felt this step redundant.

    Finally, I withdrew my application from the position in late March upon receiving an offer from a different organization. This was a very difficult decision for me because I know P&G only recruits the best market research and insights talent possible. Upon withdrawing, I was informed I would have had a final panel interview with more managers and HR reps.
