    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The process started with an exam at their offices. I was invited to an interview 2 weeks later. The first interview was with two brand managers, one of them being an observer. The initial interview was hard and elective. The second one was conducted to check my english (not my mother tongue), I believe because it wasn't that hard compared to the first one. The final interview was extremely tough since I was being interview by a director and a brand manager. I was under the impression that I wasn't being interviewed but interrogated. I felt very uneasy since I felt they actually didn't believe my answers. This is one of their tactics actually, they want to make you uneasy. They also may try to distract you by looking at their phones, the ceiling or they may even sleep! Do not get distracted by these because all of them are intentional! This method is very old and uneffective in my opinion.

    CMK Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    After applying online if you pass their computer screeneng you inmediately get an email so that you fill a basic intelligence test, very easy. Then if you pass that you get called for a phone screening asking basic questions, then you get invited to do a written test with a group of candidates, this test is very hard and you must prepare. They give you a study guide but in the end it is much harder. Then if you pass you get to your first real interview, with a future collegue, mostlye behavioral questions, very hard because of the many followup questions . if you pass that then you get to a panel interview with esperienced managers, the questions are harder and with greater detail, sometimes asking you how you would deal with hypothetical situations. If you pass that then all you wait and wait until they make a decision and hopefully make you an offer. the process is very long and very tedious,

    CBD Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    I first applied for an internship which i would consider pretty intense. First step was to apply online (submit a resume). Second step was completing two online tests (personality test and figurative reasoning). After passing those tests, I had a phone interview. After that, they flew me to Cincinnati for the final process. They had us attend sessions showcasing the different selling streams that you can be placed under at P&G. They give you a chance to meet P&G employees including directors and above. Then comes the 3rd test (a timed math test). Lastly- I had to go through about 2-3 interviews. I was called that same day and offered the internship.

    Interview

    It's a very long process starting with taking a test then through a number of interviews you have to go through a full all day interview and site visit. Be prepared for the process to take several months before you get a final offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in October 2015.

    Interview

    I went through a multi-step process. First I had to submit my resume and information online. Then I had to pass an online "personality test" that assessed what kind of leader and team worker I am. Next I had to take a brief online "reasoning test", somewhat similar to an IQ test.
    After I passed both, I took a longer reasoning test in person. I later learned that your scores on all of these assessments are significant to your evaluation as an applicant.

    The following day I had an hour-long panel interview with three active P&G employees. There was a series of behavioral questions, mostly phrased as "Tell me about a time when..."They requested that I respond using the "CAR method" meaning Context, Action, Result. For most of my answers, they had follow up questions specifically regarding my experience. For this position, they were especially interested my analytical and leadership skills - digging for very detailed answers.

    This was my only interview; I waited a month and then received an offer. Some of my peers conducted this interview over Skype, others had follow-up interviews in Cincinnati.
