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

    Interview

    Pretty basic STAR interview. Nothing unexpected, very structured. The initial interview came after the initial screening and was over the phone. It was an informal fit interview followed by a structured behavioral interview. After the initial interview, a second interview was conducted in person. The visit also included meeting several people on the team.

    Human Resources Director Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in May 2016.

    Interview

    The application process put you through the ringer and asked to complete a long online assessment. A couple of days after that, there was a ridiculous auto-generated boilerplate message which was both patronizing and demeaning. It was obvious to me that the rejection was based on a keyword search without significant human review. It acknowledged all of the time and effort which went into the application and allowed me the privilege to apply for another P&G position "after 12 months"! Wow! I shared it with a colleague who used to work in HR for P&G who admitted "I had never seen the auto-message wording that an applicant receives. Frankly, I'm quite surprised and it obviously doesn't put P&G in a positive light".

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Usually consists of at least 2 rounds; Behavioral based interviews. Should know what you are going to tell about your experiences before entering the interview process. P&G does a personality fit and behavioral test as well as a IQ test as well to ensure that they screen for those capabilities.

    Negotiation

    P&G does not negotiate offers. They have a set standard that they utilize for giving offers.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Champaign, IL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Very lengthy interview process that begins online. After weeding out potential candidates through basic online application process, a 1 on 1 interview ensues. The interview leads to an internship instead of an entry-level job. Thus, interning for a summer serves as a long interview for potential employment at Procter & Gamble.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    Sent an online application, was contacted a few months later. Had a phone interview and then two onsite/in-person interviews. Behavioral questions were asked during all interviews, so I can't say what it is they were looking for. They were really nice, great people. I didn't want the position when I first arrived, but the interview process makes you want the position. As in, the great people, and noting how well they treat their employees. When asked, everyone says they love it there, and to be honest, they seem like they genuinely mean it.
