    Process Engineering Interview

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    Via an internship. Internships are a very common method for P&G to recruit to R&D and seems a mutually satisfactory process. The interviews for the internship was quite demanding and focussed and all applicants had to pass a basic reasoning test. Once the job offer was made there was a choice as to location and start date.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewer was mostly focussed on understanding examples of personal initiative with very little asked about the company or the line of business.   Answer Question

    Junior Assistant Brand Manager (UK) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The process was online application, online tests, 1 hour phone interview, assessment centre and final interview. The 1 hour phone interview was conducted by a Brand Manager who you would be working with if successful. She called and asked if I had any questions before asking me a series of situational questions (4-5) followed by questions relating to my answer and then an opportunity for more questions then ending the call. The questions were extremely specific situational questions and asked to further elaborate. The Brand Manager was polite but gave no indication whether they were happy with answers.

    After the call, I received a rejection email within a few hours.

    CBD Summer Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Weybridge, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Weybridge, England
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    After passing through the online tests and a 1:1 phone interview (competency based - very structured, I had about 4 questions and used different experiences), you will be invited to the visit day. There will be a test in the morning (3 sections - numeracy, verbal, logicial) 40 questions in 65 minutes; it will be no problem completing if you passed through the first round and have experience in simple SHL. Because it is rather easy, the benchmark is high - I reckon you need to get about 80%+ correct, as one guy was asked to leave after the tests. You will then have lunch with a graduate and it is totally informal! First round interviews will then begin, it will be between 2-3 people and largely competency based. One interviewer will lead and the other interviewer will support and ask different follow up questions. Be sure to give eye contact to both. Then you would wait in the room while the interviewers decide and HR will tell you yes/no. So I got a yes and moved to the final round that was 1 to 1. It was by someone more senior but still largely competency based though this time he innovated on the questions a little bit and did a bit of CV/personality type of interviewing through the competencies.
    All of them were conducted by CBD personell so do use the opportunity to show your commercial awareness.

    Interview Questions
    • I kept being asked repeatedly about certain competencies and interviewers would ask for other examples, so you have to be able to have many examples or link them differently.   Answer Question
