Production Line Manager, Manufacturing/Packing at Procter & Gamble
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Leadership skills are a priority - show where YOU personally have led a team, task or project from start to finish and make clear what the results that you achieved were. As opposed to talking about a character trait you think is desirable, instead mention something you have done which inherently reflects this skill - 'demonstrate not state'.
What should be clear in your application is your desire to work in and passion for a certain area of the business and why, as opposed to relevant work experience where actual achievements were minimal.

Interview Advice:

Questions are all behavioural and generally start with 'Tell me about a time when....'
E.g. '....you led a group of people to success'; '...an idea of yours brought about change'; '...you were involved in a conflict at work'; '...you had to change a plan at the last minute'. Interviewers look for examples that demonstrate key capabilities such as leadership, ownership, agility, discipline etc. Prepare scenarios from your work, university, school, extra-curricular activities, holidays etc. that you can use as examples to answer these types of questions.

Application Advice:

Have several different tangible examples of leadership for your application form & the online personality questionnaire. Be concise and focus on the results or actions of each example.

Interview Advice:

Similar to above - the interviews are largely competency based and they hire the person and then give you the necessary training afterwards. Don't include anything on your CV if you can't expand on it and try to have a variety of examples - e.g. not all captain of a sports team. They are also looking for initiative and drive so you don't have to have had a title in a group for it to be a good example. Read up on the Success Drivers which is what they assess you on.

Process Engineer, at Procter & Gamble
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Make sure to highlight any work experience that is relevant in any way to supply chain and the FMCG industry. You may have never worked in this area before, but any work experience that shows the skills needed to work in it (e.g. logic, problem solving, being able to work under pressure), is vital to not only mention but also highlight.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you research on the company before the interview. You can talk all day about yourself, however if you don't know anything about the company then it does not make you stand out as a candidate. In particular for supply chain, research on the different types of supply chain roles they have (which is a lot!), and which ones you might be interested in. Also try and find out about the supply chain itself (e.g. how many and where are factories/distribution centres in UK and Europe). Something that is also always good to have a think about is how the supply chain and FMCG business could change in the future as technology develops.

Application Advice:

Read and learn about P&G's PVPs before answering application questions
Take practice tests before the online test (you will have to take the test in person before your interview, so it's important to be able to take the test yourself under pressure)

Interview Advice:

Learn the PVPs before an interview. Come to the interview with examples in your mind of times when you've exhibited the PVPs.

Application Advice:

If you have good enough grades and good character, and have not just gone to school and uni thorughout your life, but have done lots of stuff outside of that, you will do well in my opinion!

Interview Advice:

Let your character shine through. It's taken for granted that you'll be intelligent if you get through the test stages, so by the time you're at interview, it's all about how you are as a person, how you interact with people and how you can think for yourself.

Application Advice:

Make sure you are applying for the area you are most interested in, lateral movements in the company (between brands) can happen but are less common than shown in your original entry line.

Interview Advice:

As always be yourself, never say you know something you don't. P&G is great at training people in everything they need for the job so don't worry if you are missing a specific technical skill, they will focus on your overall capabilities.

Ensure your CV is short and punchy - it needs to be highlights of your key skills while ensuring the reader stays focused. The online test needs to be done honestly without any distraction. The focus throughout the process should be around leadership.

Application Advice:

Make sure you spend time to look at and understand the success drivers and always relate your answers to the success drivers as they are a key part of the application process.
I would definitely do practice papers on the verbal and non verbal sections if you're not used to them - they aren't difficult but some people fall down here just because they haven't practiced!
If applying for the process engineer manufacturing roles they will usually look for an engineering degree, where as the distribution centres will usually look for engineering or supply chain management degrees.

Interview Advice:

Again - it's all about the success drivers when thinking about what questions you could be asked. Expect there to be up to 2-3 separate interviews with different indivduals across the site. Just be yourself as even if they don't think you're a fit for a certain P&G job, they may see you fitting somewhere else.

Application Advice:

An understanding in TPM systems would be beneficial as P&G is built on its own interpretation of this philosophy. Otherwise, having experience in leadership & people management would be useful. You can best prepare for what would be expected of you by the company by visiting the website and learning about the P&G Success Drivers. Be prepared to sit some relatively simple aptitude assessments.

Application Advice:

Overall, P&G's main focus is it's people, so it's important that you are true to yourself throughout your application. We have a really great leadership programme here too, so try to highlight your leadership experience in any capacity. The other thing to realise is that P&G are quite different to most graduate recruiters, and the process is pretty bespoke. Make sure you read through all the info available on the web and look for more - but don't get put off if you're not jumping through exactly the same hoops that you do for everyone else!

Interview Advice:

Preparation is everything, however you don't want to fall into the trap of being too automated. I found it useful to google potential questions and write three or four word answers about a relavant experience that would trigger a useful response. Don't get carried away with scripting every answer, the team here want to see what you are like and how you naturally respond to situations. We have a set of success drivers that we look for in our interview process, so it's always good to look through those on the web and see if you have any good examples of when you've displayed that trait.

Application Advice:

Make sure you understand what you bring to the table before you apply - look at everything you have done and achieved and make sure you highlight all those key achievements in your application. Also, understand what the company is looking for before applying, that will help you frame your application appropriately.

Interview Advice:

be yourself and try to not be too nervous. An interview is a conversation about you and about the company...you have already nailed by 50% of it by just understanding what you want, what you have to give and what they are looking for.

Application Advice:

Do your research. The P&G Careers website is extremely informative and gives a true indication of what they are looking for. Don't try to change based on what they are looking for. If it doesn't sound like your strengths, it might not be the right thing for you.

Interview Advice:

The interviews are based on your experiences, so for example they ask questions like "tell me about a time when you lead a group..." "Tell me about a time when you were flexible in a situation that lead to improved results...£

Application Advice:

Read up on what each function/business area does at P&G so you can make the best decision about which role is for you.

Because we hire people as managers straight into the function of their interest, with the intention of growing them within this function, you should have a good idea of what it is that function does.

Luckily, we hire a lot of graduates through internships so there is an opportunity to see over a 10 week (or 12 month period in some cases), whether it is for you or not!

Interview Advice:

You don't need to have an prior knowledge or experience in the area you are applying to but really do take the time to understand P&G's values and what we look for (success drivers). If you know this, you will likely be better equipped for the interview.

Application Advice:

Listen carefully to all the advice that you're given and apply any learnings. The process is seeking to understand i) how well you have performed in the past and ii) your ability and potential to learn and perform in the future. Use the CAR method: Context (background to a challenge), Action (the steps you took), Result (what you acheived).

Interview Advice:

Use the CAR (Context, Action, Result) technique again and think about how you have demonstrated each of the Success Drivers (if possible, multiple examples) in the past.
