    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied online, submitting my CV and covering letter. I then had to take two online tests consisting of a reasoning test and their "success drivers" assessment. About a month later I received an email saying I had been successful and inviting me along to their assessment day where I had to take another longer and more difficult reasoning test.
    I found out within 24 hours that I had passed this test and then was invited to have a phone interview, I again passed this stage and was informed straight away that the next stage would be face to face interviews with a senior manager. I travelled to their head offices and had my interview which lasted roughly an hour with two of their senior managers, and consisted of virtually identical questions to the phone interview. 10 days later I received a job offer.
    Apart from the initial waiting stage the whole process was very fast.

    Personality online tests, online tests, presential tests, interviews. Those online tests are very basic and easy to pass. The main issue with the presential test is the limited time to answer each question. So you have to be very fast and confident about your answer.

    R1) written test
    R2) Face to face interview. Mostly behavioral questions asked
    R3) Less number of questions but a lot of probing for more details

    The final round was conduced by Associate directors from the same function that i applied for, so there level of grilling was higher.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through their job page. Did the online reasoning test and answered some short behavioral questions. Two weeks later I got an invitation for an offline reasoning test and some interviews at their premises. The reasoning test was quite similar to the practice test (provided online) although the last part was a little bit harder. The test, when successful, is followed by three interviews, only one in which direct behavioral questions were asked. All interviewers made you feel at ease and were easy-going. Even got to do an informal lunch with one other employee. Two days after I was offered a position as an intern.

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of questions on my dissertation as it was quite similar to the job description for which I applied. The toughest question maybe was 'what would you like to know from me?'. All other questions were either out of interest or behavioral as mentioned on the P&G website.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    First I was asked to redo the aptitude tests that I had previously done online. These are very simple, so if you have actually done the first ones by yourself you should be ok.

    Then the process is constituted by three interviews. These are all with the same type of questions based on your life experiences and CV. There are some questions available on the website of the company to give you an idea of what they are going to ask and to help you prepare.

    The interviews are quite informal and from what it seemed to me all they wanted to do is get to know me and see if my personality fitted the company and its values.
