Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Ann Arbor, MI (US)) in February 2019.

Interview

Prior to a phone interview, there was an online questionnaire testing aptitude and personality. Although the aptitude portion of the test was manageable, the personality test on the other hand was incredibly difficult with many right answers.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I sent in an application online then received a link to take two tests (one scenario-based and the other logical/shape-based). I gave a recruiter my resume at my school’s career fair and let them know that I had already applied.

    Then I was selected for an on-campus interview (behavioral, situational, and 2 technical questions). After passing the interview, I was asked to take a test at a testing center (45 questions on a computer, they send you a practice test but the actual test is a bit harder).

    After passing the test, I was called by a recruiter to go to Cincinnati for two days. In Cincinnati, I had a dinner with a p&g employee to ask questions. The next day, you meet with other interviewees (not all are going for the same position). My recommendation is to be very friendly, introduce yourself to the other interns and get to know them (they may be future colleagues and talking to other interviewees will help ease nerves). I had 2 back-to-back interviews (behavioral, situational, and 2 technical) with extremely experienced, very friendly finance directors. After, another finance employee took me to lunch. I received a call a few hours after the interviews with the internship offer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    had to take a math test that was mostly SAT/ACT topics and some discover-the-pattern questions. Super day was actually a breeze with only behavioral questions. No technical questions about the company's finances or accounting questions were asked

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Austin, UT (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process involves a behavioral aspect to it as well as a situational aspect to it. With the situational aspect, they will ask questions such as, "If you were a CFO looking to expand a certain part of the business to Indonesia, what would you have to consider in starting it?"

    Interview

    Long and complex. Aside from the typical situational interview, there is a logic and quantitative test that must be taken prior to job offer. Other than that, the questions are pretty straight forward and nothing out of the ordinary. P&G focuses on the CAR model, so prepare your answers following the expected response format of context, actions and results.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (New York, NY (US)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Maths test, 1 screening interview, 1 panel interview, and two interviews over the phone. Hard to communicate with HR. Never knew who I was speaking to. Someone in HR also forgot who I was. Not very personal. Process took so long I took another offer from a firm. People who interviewed me however were very friendly and helpful.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was a long and arduous process. It took 3 months, 5 interviews, and 2 hours of testing to complete. I got a lot of positive feedback throughout the process and felt like I would fit in well in the culture. PG, even now, would be a place where I imagine anyone would retire from. However after I completed the entire process I received a form letter rejecting my application. It seemed like an easy process that I thought I was navigating successfully but I would suggest this is harder than it seems. Unfortunately, I can't even begin to imagine what went wrong after receiving so much positive feedback during my interviews.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Procter & Gamble (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Online application including an IQ-type assessment. Interviewing consisted of three rounds. First was on campus and in person. Was an hour long behavioral interview. Was honestly exhausting because after an hour so many of the questions they are asking ("tell me about a time when...") could be answered with similar scenarios/examples. Second round was a phone interview. Also behavioral. Third round was in person at the company headquarters in Cincinnati. All expenses paid. Arrive the evening before the interview. Had dinner with a current Financial Analyst that had graduated from my university just a few years prior. This was intended to be a welcoming dinner and to ask off-the-record questions, not part of the interview process. Next day started with an exam, again with presumably IQ-test type questions. Then two rounds of interviews, each with a director-level finance person. Both were again behavioral but how strict that was depended on the interviewer. With my first, we stuck to his script. With the second, we had a lot in common so she asked the minimal required from the script but we spent much of the time informally discussing working for the company, etc. After that, was taken to lunch by another graduate from my university, this one more established in the company. After lunch, interview ended.

    Interview Questions

    • Nearly all questions were in a "tell me about a time when..." format. For example, tell me about a time when you had to work with someone you didn't get along with.   Answer Question
