Assistant Brand Manager Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

Interview

Step 1. Online application
Step 2. Invitation to fill out assessment- Behavioral + Cognitive ability questions. This was the interactive assessment test,
(https://downloads.pgwebtools.com/files/global-files/assessments-overview/Interactive_Assessment_Guide.pdf)

The behavioral questions should be answered with core values in mind. Cognitive ability- well let's just say that the level is ratcheted up pretty quickly as you progress through the tests. The one with numbers threw me off because one operation or number is only allowed to be used once. So the question becomes how can you total upto 130 if the problem is (x + y)-z * A =130. This was harder to figure out on the fly. For patterns with dots on the screen, I would just doodle the dots on a blank piece of paper real quick and generally try to pick right areas.

If you pass step 2 (which I did)

Step 3. Phone interview with brand manager and I did not progress beyond this step.

I feel like there is some misinformation on glassdoor about this round.
My interviewer told me there will be 7 questions.
5x behavioral questions.. tell me about a time when..
2x situation questions.. what would you do if..

Be prepared to answer from a CAR perspective, write down these answers and read them as you answer them, this is the best way to stay within the confines of CAR.

I definitely rambled on one behavioral question and one situational question.

There are 0 questions about resume or experience or your knowledge of P&G at this stage.
I was given about 10 minutes to ask questions at the end so be prepared.

My understanding is that the next step would've been an in person interview in Cincinnati.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble in September 2018.

    Interview

    Made it through the assessment of the application. It took them several months just to let me know I wouldn't get an interview because they hired someone else. Very unprofessional.

    Interview

    It was only the first round, so I am still unfamiliar with the entire process. It was very structured to the CAR format. I would recommend my friends, but it is not the most personable process that I have ever been involved with. Interviewing with A&F was a lot more fun.

    1 hour interview. Interviewers introduced themselves. Four to five behavioral questions and two situational questions were asked. Use the C.A.R. format (context, action, result) for behavioral questions. Then time was allowed for questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Chicago, IL (US)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Long interview process which was separated into three different steps. First, the application. Second, the personality and logic puzzles. Third, the actual interview itself. I like how detailed the process is because it shows that they really want the best employees.

    Apply online at PG careers with the ABM code, online assessment, and 2 interviews. The first interview was on the phone. The second was in person with two people. At the second interview, I had to take a second assessment, which was timed. Both interviews were similar in style. They each lasted about 45-60 minutes with room for questions at the end.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (New York, NY (US)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The process started with an exam at their offices. I was invited to an interview 2 weeks later. The first interview was with two brand managers, one of them being an observer. The initial interview was hard and elective. The second one was conducted to check my english (not my mother tongue), I believe because it wasn't that hard compared to the first one. The final interview was extremely tough since I was being interview by a director and a brand manager. I was under the impression that I wasn't being interviewed but interrogated. I felt very uneasy since I felt they actually didn't believe my answers. This is one of their tactics actually, they want to make you uneasy. They also may try to distract you by looking at their phones, the ceiling or they may even sleep! Do not get distracted by these because all of them are intentional! This method is very old and uneffective in my opinion.
