    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is detailed on their website. After taking the online assessments, I was invited to an initial interview and took an in-person test (very similar to their practice test). After successful completion of the initial interview, I got an invitation to come to the site for more interviews and to get to know the company on a more personal level. In fact, there was really only one formal interview and the rest were pretty much conversations to get to know you better and vice versa. Overall, a great experience that proves the company wants to hire you for who you are, not necessarily just your specs on your resume.

    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It is a long process where you have to take a logic test and personality test in addition to the application. After passing all of that you do a first round interview. If you pass that you have to take a paper test at a testing center like a sylvan learning. After passing that you are flow to HQ for your final interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in November 2016.

    Interview

    Found out about general initiative through college job board. Many different roles existed, and the only posting on my school's website was for marketing. I looked on the P&G website and found the finance and accounting job shadow opportunity and applied for it. I had to do some logic and situation based tests online and then I got an invite for an interview. The interview was behavioral and hypothetical. It was very hard, especially for a freshman.

Company is very safety focused in a way I have never seen before (all companies pay lip service to safety, few are as dedicated as P&G). For a manufacturing plant it is very clean and quiet (relatively speaking).” – Full Review
