    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    Quick reply to initial application. Had to fill out personality test and IQ-like test. Then interviews. Take the IQ test seriously. It consisted exclusively of "fill-in-the-blank" geometric puzzles, which I was not prepared for. Their website represented the test as primarily math problems and logic assessments. It's funny- I took their practice test online, very confident that I got every single question right, but when I took the actual test I completed bombed. It appears that if you score below some threshold, they will automatically remove you from the pool, which isn't a perfectly efficient system but understandable given their size. If you fail, you have to wait 12 months to attempt again. Shame... I was extremely qualified otherwise.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in October 2017.

    Interview

    Procter & Gamble is a great company, but sadly, have a not so great online interview process. Most fully qualified applicants will not get past the P.E.A.K test, because it is exactly the opposite of what a test is: it tries to assess your weaknesses, rather than strengths.

    Most of try to present an image of confidence and appears knowledgeable in front of interviewers, but this is the OPPOSITE of what you should do on P.E.A.K. In order to pass P.E.A.K., you must appear weak and ineffective (but not TOO weak and ineffective). See questions below for examples.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Its a five step process and they explain the whole thing in great detail, once you start the application. The only thing they do not explain is how long it will take for each step to be processed. I made it through step 3 (phone interview) which took a few months, and then another two months before I received an email letting me know that the job was filled.
