    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    The first round was extremely casual and seemed to be a gauge to see if you would fit into the work environment. After that it became much more professional and not nearly as friendly. They were AWFUL at getting back to me if i had made it to the next step or not.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    I first heard about the opportunity through recruiters at my college. I became extremely interested in the position, so I applied online that night. The online application had a success drivers assessment to see how I acted in the workplace, and also a reasoning test to see if I was able to think in a way in which I would be successful at the company. About 2 days later, I received an email saying that I passed the two tests and that they would like to move forward with the interview process. I signed up for an interview time that was one week later and on campus.
    The first interview was very laid back with two people from P&G who were campus recruiters. The interview was much like a conversation, where they were just trying to get a look into my mind. They asked me a ton of behavioral based questions, and always wanted me to expand on my initial answers. I prepared a TON for this interview, so I would recommend doing the same. Also, have a bunch of questions ready to ask them. This interview lasted about an hour, and they told me I would her back shortly.
    The next morning, I heard back and they told me that they would fly me to Cincinnati for my second and final interview. I flew out to Cincinnati about 3 weeks after my initial interview. When I got there, I had a "day host" who showed me around the city, took me out to a nice restaurant, answered all of the questions I had about the internship, and calmed my nerves for my interview the next day.
    My day host picked me up from the hotel the next morning and brought me to P&G's office, where all of the students interviewing that day would eat breakfast together. We then took another reasoning test, but this time on paper. The test was pretty long and more difficult than the one online.
    After the test, each student was placed with their own panel of 3 people higher up in the company to interview with. This interview was very similar to the initial interview, being mostly behavioral based questions. Some of the questions were hard and made you really think, but if you prepare enough you should be fine. Everyone in my panel was super laid back and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible, which really helped calm my nerves and interview to the best of my ability. This interview was about an hour and 15 minutes.
    After the interview, we got a tour of the labs and were able to talk to previous interns about their projects that they worked on as interns and the projects that they were working on at the time as full-time employees. That was a cool experience because we really got an inside look at the company.
    I was made an informal offer that same afternoon, and then I accepted my offer about a week later through email. The process was smooth and painless.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in October 2013.

    Interview

    Talked to thm at career fair and had to take iq test. Was invited for on campus interview but never made it to on site interview. IQ test was rather challenging and involved many different shapes. Overall a very structured process but very difficult to get an on site interview because of the sheer number of applicants.

    Interview

    I get to the process of phone interview. The next day, they ask me to go to Cicinati, OH. It is a nice place. I like that. Since I am the first time to be interviewed, I did not do very well at all. And, finally, I rank the 5 but did not get the job.

She wanted to know about the objectives of the project, the challenges encountered, and the technical solutions I provided to tackle the problems. The whole process was rather intense. The interviewer was friendly though.

    Process consisted in 2 interviews of 1 hours each with representatives of R&D middle management. The questions were directed to understand examples from previous academic or work experience and to demonstrate the presence of core skills. The conversation flowed naturally with the interviewer and there was time at the end for me to ask questions back on the company and interview process.

    There was no negotiating. But I heard the best things to pull if you need more money is to talk about the cost of living and also look at the national average for your degree if you are below that you can ask for more money as well.
