    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Procter & Gamble.

    Interview Details

    Interview and hiring process is quite extensive. First step was to submit application, write a logical reasoning test, and a personality test. If you did well on the first, you were invited in for another test with 3 components: problem solving, comprehension, and logical reasoning. Interviews were awarded after that.

    Interview Details

    Online resume, no cover letter/transcripts required. Had a strong resume and wide variety of experiences, but probably not as competitive as a 3rd year student. Perhaps I didn't fair well on the online personality test.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, wrote a test on campus, did a Skype interview.

    Interviewed by 2 mid level people at the company who had been there about 10 years on average. They asked pretty typical questions about times when you showed leadership, analyzed data.

    They expected longer and very detailed responses to be prepared in advance for some of the questions as they sent us general question topics beforehand

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Procter & Gamble in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    At the time of the application, you are invited to complete 3 IQ tests. Upon successful submission attempts, I was then invited to the office to write a final IQ test that was harder than the first. At the time of writing the final test, I suggest you get good sleep and enter into the test with a clear mind; time constraints were a major factor, so write fast! After this, my first interview was held with two people who asked purely behavioural questions. My second interview was a replication of the first, but the two interviewers went into a lot more depth and detail about my answers.

    Interview Details

    Process took about 4 weeks
    Applied as a new grad online. You have to do an online assessment followed by a written assessment. Basic logic questions, math problems and written reasoning questions. Next is the first round interview on campus with younger people in the company. All behavioural questions (talk about a time sort of thing), pretty easy stuff. Moved on to second round interview at their Toronto office. Was taken out to lunch and received a tour of the office then had my interview with two senior members of the company. Very friendly people. Same routine as last time, but significantly more thorough, they asked several variations of the same question expecting different experiences for each one. Positive experience overall though.
