    Difficult Interview

    Did not make it beyond online questions. I would have preferred follow up on exactly where and on what they felt was lacking. Some employers provide that option.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I first applied online through their website and through my college's career services portal. Then, I took the two online tests (one was behavioral and one was puzzle/shape based). After this, I was notified electronically that I was invited for an on-campus interview. For this interview, they started out asking quesitons about my resume, then some pre-written behavioral questions, along with hypothetical scenarios asking how would you respond. A couple of days later, I got a call saying I was invited for a Day Visit at their headquarters in Cincinnati, where I took another written test (there's a practice test on their website) along with a second round interview. The structure was the same as the first interview. All questions can easily be answered using the CAR method.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Describe a time you improved a process.
      2. Describe a time you disagreed with someone, and how you handled it.

      1. Imagine you've been given four projects. You have a day to complete the first one, a week to complete the second one, a month to complete the third one, and a year to complete the fourth one. How would you address this?

      There were more questions obviously but this is the structure of the two types.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty much every question was behavioral. They have a set of 9 questions that they want you to answer, and any technical question they ask will stem from how you answer the questions. For example, if you talk about a robotics project, they might ask you to explain how you wrote PID code to make the bot drive straight.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Houston, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Worst interview experience ever. I have interviewed with P&G three times now, this year for a full time role. The first time was for an internship, I did not come prepared so it was pretty much my fault. The second time was again for an internship and this time I was prepared and knew what I was doing, but their interviewers are just out to get you. They will throw anything at you to invalidate your answer and eliminate you from the process. When they ask you a question, they will try to milk everything they possibly can out of you. Like I answered using the STAR method, gave a complete answer to the best of my abilities, but they keep asking follow up questions like "What did you learn from this experience?" or "What was the result of that". It is as if they are never satisfied with your answer. This year I interviewed for a full time PS role, and it was the same exact experience. Since I had this experience with them last year, I tried to give them the most complete answer possible, but in doing so I would forget about the question in the middle of my answer. On top of that, my interviewer was very rude, not breaking a smile during the entire interview and shutting down the questions I had for him at the end with one line answers. He really put me in the hot seat as well, saying that my answers to his questions were incomplete. Very unprofessional. Worst of all they make you take all these assessments, both online and in person and then they try to "defeat" you in the interview. Also, if you get rejected, you have to wait an entire year before you can be considered again. Honestly, this company is not worth it and I would never want to work here based on the experiences I had with their interview process. They are looking for a very particular type of personality and if you don't have what they are looking for then be prepared to be shut down. They are just out to waste your time. I am never applying here again and will never work here in my life.
