Associate Manager Interview

Associate Manager
Bhopal

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in January 2008.

Interview Details The interview was conducted on campus. there was a detailed presentation before the interview which highlighted the achievements of P&G in the last 5 years. They also answered any doubts/concerns that we had. The interview was a 2 stage process with 2 people interviewing me in each stage. The 1st interview is a shortlisting process for the 2nd interview. The 2nd interview is typically taken by senior P&G leadership and was much more thorough than the 1st one. Be prepared to answer in-depth probing about anything that you say.

Market Strategy and Planning Interview

Anonymous Employee
Mumbai

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in November 2009.

Interview Details I was applying as an MBA summer associate. I had 2 back to back interviews during our recruitment day. Both the interviews were HR based. Each of the 2 sets of interviews lasted about 30 to 45 minutes. Each of the interviews were taken by a panel of 2 people - one from their HR department and one from the respective business/function. P&G hires people for their attitude and hence all questions were HR based and not at all technical in nature. The interviewers were really good and helpful people. Focus was more on prior leadership experiences, team work and about me as a person - major decisions in life and why I took them.

Interview Questions
