What Is the Procter and Gamble Hiring Process?

Procter and Gamble’s hiring process is a multi-stage process involving several standardized tests and one or more interviews.


Application to Procter and Gamble


After finding a job opening that interests you on the Procter and Gamble website, send in your resume (some positions will also require a cover letter).

To attract the recruiter’s attention, it’s best to keep to the following advice:

  • Keep your resume concise. It is best to keep it down to one page if possible.
  • Emphasize your biggest strengths and achievements first.
  • Communicate your accomplishments clearly.


The Procter and Gamble Assessment


If your resume is selected for the next stage, you will be asked to complete a Procter and Gamble Assessment. Different types of assessments are used for different roles, but typically you will be asked to complete a PEAK performance assessment and a series of challenging cognitive assessments meant to evaluate your mathematical, logic, and spatial orientation skills (such as a grid challenge and a digit challenge).

The PEAK is a personality test and a situational judgment test (SJT), intended to gauge how well you would handle various workplace situations. Other assessments may evaluate your numerical, spatial orientation, or memory skills. Sometimes the candidates are asked to take a Virtual Job Preview Test, which tests similar skills in a somewhat different format.

  • Brush up on Procter and Gamble’s core values before the PEAK test. The purpose of the test is partly to evaluate whether you are a good fit for the company’s values.
  • Practicing for the assessments will improve your chances.
  • Go back to your basic math skills. A large part of the assessment test is devoted to an employee’s math skills.

Procter and Gamble Interviews


Different applicants at Procter and Gamble are asked to go through different types of interviews – some candidates need to undergo one-on-one interviews, while others need to face a panel of interviewers. In this post-pandemic age, almost all interviews are carried out online or by phone.

  • Read all of the material you have been provided by Procter and Gamble. This will help you figure out what the company is looking for in an employee.
  • Read up on Procter and Gamble’s core values AGAIN. The interviewers will want to see if you’re a good fit for the company.
  • Look over your resume. Think of good examples of your competencies and strengths from your work experience.
  • Learn to answer questions following the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) format. This is the format P&G interviewers expect in most answers.
