    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Dayton, OH) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Had 2 interviews. First was in front of two engineers then invited for a second interview which was a phone interview with one person. Got job offer than evening by email. Accepted job offer then had to have background check and hair follicle drug test. Somewhat of a long process to get hired on. P&G is very thorough in hiring individuals. They told me that they hire to retire.

    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.

    After applying, the company will contact you if they would like you to take an aptitude test. If the test is passed, you will be invited to a group interview where they tour the plant and members of leadership will interview the candidates individually. A second individual interview will be with a higher member of leadership. A conditional job offer will be made and you will take a drug test. If this is passed you will complete physical screenings. Finally, you will get a start date when a group of new hires are ready to start.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Iowa City, IA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    If you are reading this you might be wondering how hard is to get hired by Procter and Gamble. I was very nervous and I even get to practice some interviews with friends. I got so prepare for it but that questions were a little different and more specific. So, I will tell you, this interview is a great way to view and have practice as in the real and professional world. P&G knows their questions very good and they vary according to locations. The interview itself is not hard, here is your only hint from me to yourself, if you are a good worker, you also like to work, and you love what you are doing (not necessary has to do with P&G) you will do fine at this interview. In the other hand, if you don't work hard, don't like to work and you don't love what you do, you won't be a good candidate. So another advice be yourself at this and any other interview. Now P&G comes with a bunch of questions where they like examples please be prepare for that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Dover, DE) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online in earlier April 2015 and received an email scheduling me to show up on a specific date and time to complete the skills assessment about a week later. The assessment was performed with a batch of about 25-30 people for our particular time slot. A few days after the assessment, I was scheduled for an interview. First was with a panel interview of three, then followed by a second interview with one individual who asked for more in-depth answers to those given in the first interview. After a few months, an offer for the position was made, in which I accepted. I have completed the contingencies and am currently waiting for a start date.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Browns Summit, NC) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online then was invited to take an assessment in person, there were a lot of other candidates that were also there to take the assessment (like 100 others). I passed the assessment and was then invited to an interview this interview was fairly easy, after that I was immediately asked to come in for a second interview this interview asked relatively the same questions from the first one but the answers required more detail. At the end of the interview I was offered the job I accepted and I was taking to the on site doctors office to submit hair for a hair drug test. I am currently awaiting the results of this to continue to complete the rest of the contingencies. I have to take a physical & a health questionnaire once my drug test & background check come back.
