    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is structured and challenging. You will have to complete two assessments up front, one for management and the other for analytical reasoning. If your scores are indicative of future success, then you will have a phone interview.

    Interviews at P&G are rigorous and if you do not spend considerable time in upfront preparation, you will likely not succeed. All questions are behavioral questions and you are asked to answer those questions using the C.A.R. (Context, Action and Result) method. This is where your upfront work comes in... you will want to spend considerable time thinking about how you can best market the work you have done and the results you have achieved. This is critical to your success in this step.

    If you make it past the phone interview, which lasts around an hour, you will then be asked to take a proctored reasoning assessment. I would suggest completing the practice exam that P&G provides for this to help you understand the types of questions that will be asked of you. You will find this assessment to be GRE/GMAT like in format and complexity. You will have 60 minutes to complete 40 questions from three different sections.

    If your reasoning assessment scores come back positive, you will then be asked for an in-person or video conference panel interview. The structure of this interview is the same as the phone interview; however, the questions are more in depth. In this phase, continue your upfront work you did for the phone interview and expand upon it.

    After the panel interview, you will be contacted shortly thereafter if an offer is being prepared for you.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiter who I met at a career fair and online. Recruiter called to prep me for the assessment and personality tests. Somewhat difficult personality questions asking you what you would do in certain situations. In real life I would have done 2-3 of the given options, making it hard to choose between the answers.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process is long and difficult. Several behavioral based interviews combined with two tests to measure culture fit and reasoning. The interview questions are fairly standard and follow the format "Tell me about a time when.....". The tests are the most difficult part. There is little you can do to prepare, so just be save yourself enough time to get through them.

    Applied through Alum Career Connector. Scheduled an on campus interview. Interview was behavioral and also focused on company culture.
