    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview was purely personals.
    Interview was strictly of the pattern where the interviewer keeps asking instances where you demonstrated certain qualities, had to work under pressure, had to handle a tough situation etc.
    The questions that had to be filled out as part of the online application form were reviewed in detail during the interview. I stuck to the same answers that I had given to the questions while filling out the form, though I believe that they are open to other answers too if you'd like that.
