    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.

    Plant Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Iowa City, IA

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Iowa City, IA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was a multiple step process. It started with a standard online application. Following that I was invited to take a "reasoning test" a few days later (The test was 8 days after my initial application). I and about 18 other candidates took a standardized test covering pattern recognition, basic mechanical and electrical engineering, and math. It wasn't super difficult if you remember much from high school. The next day I was invited to an interview and tour the day after next. The interview was fairly standard, proctored by two management level employees. Four days later I received a call for a second interview, the dates and times of which were flexible. Three days later I had an interview, essentially identical to the first. Following this a received a provisional offer, pending the results of my drug screen, physical, background check, and lifting test. We scheduled our own tests (the background check was done online), drug test was urinalysis, and after all tests were completed I received an offer. Entire process took about a month.

    Intense. It is an all day interview where you are interviewed by at least 15-20 people. But they feed you and make sure you are comfortable all day. The people are very nice and willing to answer all questions. It takes a very long time to hear back about their decisions.
