Okay hopefully this post helps those who are currently applying to Procter & Gamble or those intending to do so in the future. I will basically sum up the whole job application process from both my experience and others’ that I have read.

I went for the reasoning test in P&G’s building today. There were three different test slots and about 20 people in each. From my research, there are about 2000 applicants for each role and they eliminate the number down to 150-200 after the online reasoning test. Later on, there might be a phone interview before a face-to-face interview and then a final interview if one ever made it that far.

I haven’t been so nervous for the longest time.

I guess it’s because it’s been ages since I sat for a test. In college, I was graded by the different projects I did. The test was 65 minutes long with 40 questions consisting of mathematical problems, verbal reasoning, and some pattern reasoning. The questions are pretty similar to GMAT although I think the mathematical problems are easier and more straight forward. However I was panicking at the last 10 minutes as I have a couple more questions left and my brain was frozen momentarily. I ended up guessing the last two mathematical problems as there were too much information and my frozen brain wasn’t helping.

The lady told us that if we didn’t hear from them in two weeks meant good news…ha.. which would lead to the next round of interview. And the whole process will take another two months.

I am not sure what is the cut off point to make it to the next round of the interview. If it is really 60% as what I’ve read, then I’ll definitely be able to make it. Meanwhile I am gonna try out for Loreal, my number two option.

Just gotta keep trying 🙂
