Researcher Interview

Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in October 2013.

Interview

It was as thorough as it could be. The primary screener was a corporate level well polished interviewer who made me feel comfortable. Later there were technical interviews with four technologists who work for the group that was hiring.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Singapore (Singapore)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I had 2 rounds of interviews. they will ask you what you have learned from school and why you want to join their company(standard questions). the second round is more job-specific but also focus on your resume. I was also asked a technical question (process innovation method) on a brand new topic that I have never heard of nor thought about. They will test how you react to a real world problem and how you approach the problem to solve it.

    • What are your strength and weakness? Why our company? what have you learned in school? and some questions related to your resume and also situational questions.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview

    There are online tests, as well as a written test. After passing all 3, you will then be asked to come down for an interview. There will be another final round of interview which determines if you will be offered a position in the company. The duration of the entire process is very lengthy therefore you have to be prepared to wait.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The process I went through started by taking the online tests. It takes a while. After passing the tests, you can be contacted for a phone interview. I had a phone interview that was focused on asking me what I've done and what experiences I had. I then was told they wanted to do an in person interview. For the in person interview, there was a full day event. I was flown in and taken to dinner the night before. The following day I had to take the same online test in person. I went through a panel interview followed by a research plant tour. I was allowed to ask questions and was encouraged to. We went to lunch and did the process again. I had another tour and panel interview. In the end I was offered the full time position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in August 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online and completed two assessments. I received a phone call two months later informing me that I was selected for a phone interview. The interviewer asked situational/behavioral interview questions. The interview lasted for an hour. I advise anyone seeking employment with P&G to prepare well for their interview. I read several books of interview questions and practiced with friends beforehand. A few months later a P&G representative called to inform me that the company announced a hiring freeze :(.
