I applied online - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in February 2013.

Interview Details 1. Online Application - includes a personality and iQ test
2. First interview with two co-workers
Very simple questions. Mostly situational questions like "when was a time when you took leadership in a project" etc.
3. Second Interview with two department managers
Harder questions. It is obvious that they focused on questions I didn't answer that well in the first interview.

Interview Question – Questions were all simple.   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

Intern Interview

Intern
Toronto, ON

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Procter & Gamble in November 2010.

Interview Details The hiring process took two online tests (analytical and personality), one on-campus analytical test, a panel interview (with 2 people), lunch with senior manager, and a final panel interview (with 3 people). I was asked all behavioural questions for both interviews, as well as follow-up questions.
My advice is to be very well prepared and know your experiences thoroughly because they will ask for every detail. It is fine to bring bullet-point notes to help you remember, as long as you don't read off the paper.

Interview Questions

  • Tell us about a time when you had to solve a problem using conflicting information.   Answer Question
  • Tell us about a time when you inspired a group of people to achieve something.   Answer Question
