    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    There are 5 stages to the P&G application process. As P&G often hires it graduates from the interns, you have to go through the full 5 stages to get an internship at P&G. The best interns get a job offer on the last day of their internship. This is based on their culture fit with the company, quality of their 3 projects and how they performed in the mid-term and final review (in-front of 3 managers).

    After passing the CV selection and online test stages, you will have your first telephone interview. This will be competency based (as all P&G interviews). Here you will we asked question about your CV and experiences (tell me about a time you showed initiative, leadership, faced a difficult problem, etc.) This will be with a sales person so make sure that you have some sales related questions at the end.

    After this interview, you will have the assessment test at the P&G office. Which is not difficult but the time you get is very short. So practise online before you take it. Depending on whether your pass or fail this test you will enter the last 2 stages of the application process, two final interviews. The first interview is with a panel of 2 or 3 managers and the second interview is with a senior manager. These interviews are very similar and will again focus on competency based questions, make sure you know the P&G success drivers very well and can provide personal examples for each of them. I didn't get any P&G related question, they really focus on who you are and what you have learned from your experiences. Just be honest, have relevant examples and answer their question in a structured manner (STAR or CAR approach) and you will be fine. And of course ask questions at the end of the interview and know why you want to do sales. The whole interview process is very professional and they will make you feel comfortable, so no worries.

    Interview Details

    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.

    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.

    Interview Questions
