    Online tests are very difficult, especially the logical tests which involve puzzle solving. Recommend lots of practices before applying. Once you get to the interview, it is not that difficult. You can expect general questions such as solving a problem in a particular situation, i.e. scenario questions.

    I applied to join the Day in the Life of a Finance and Accounting manager and was successfully put through to the telephone interview. The interviewer was very informative, discussing what the layout would be on the phone. The questions were all competency, following P&G's success drivers and it was mainly circulated around there values. After that, I was successful in being invited for the event and I will get the opportunity to be interviewed again for the summer internship.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through P&G website, and also through my college internship program. The position was process engineering internship. The online questions were shapes in patterns and the answers seemed to me to be all based on how many sides the shapes had. there were times when colours were introduced but nothing to difficult. The interview was over the phone with an engineer, I had prepared for a HR person to interview because it seemed like that was what was going to be the case from the emails I got before hand. I was asked a lot about myself and then at the end I was asked some hypothetical problem solving questions.

    Via an internship. Internships are a very common method for P&G to recruit to R&D and seems a mutually satisfactory process.

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

    Interview Details

    There was an online reasoning test and then a phone interview, they asked strictly situational questions. They asked a lot of questions related to leadership. The two online tests, the personality test and the visual thinking test were fairly straight forward. I was just honest with the personality test and then the other mathematical pattern based test was actually tricky but I did better than I expected.
