Procter & Gamble (otherwise known as P&G) is a multinational consumer goods company that employs people across over 150 brands. P&G has a rigorous online assessment process, including an application form, multiple tests and a panel interview.
The tests were well suited to the job that I’ve applied for. They are easy to do and loads of them.Sophie used Practice Aptitude Tests to help pass her aptitude tests for Deloitte. Start your success story
Sales Virtual Job Preview
The Sales Virtual Job Preview is your chance to showcase your skills, experience and what sets you apart from the rest.
The first section is a brief introduction, which won’t include questions for you to answer. However, it’s good practice to take notes in case you’re asked about any of it later on, and so you can improve your own knowledge and understanding of P&G.
You’ll then move on to six different exercises:
Imagining you’re a member of the sales team, you’ll have to respond to nine emails using a pool of pre-prepared responses, out of which you’ll select the ones you’d be ‘most’ and ‘least’ likely to use. Practising situational judgement tests will help you improve at this.
Still imagining you’re in the sales team, you’ll now be required to answer eight numerical questions (essentially a mini numerical reasoning test).
Exercise three is about prioritisation. You’ll be given a schedule that requires you to prioritise two sets of four tasks, based on their significance and how quickly you think you’d complete them. Again, it’s important to think like a member of the sales team here, to answer the questions most effectively.
Next, 25 quick questions that start, ‘I prefer a job where…’ followed by two possible answers. This helps build a clearer picture of you as an individual and how you’re likely to fit into the team. Prepare by thinking about the type of person P&G is likely to want to hire based on their core values and ethics, as well as the requirements of the role you’re applying for.
Then, 23 questions designed to find out more about you: your background, experience and work history. In this section, ensure everything you write is accurate.
Finally, you’ll need to answer 23 questions on your preferred working style. Ensure you’re honest, as your answers should be reflective of what you’ve said about yourself elsewhere.
Although untimed, the Sales Virtual Job Preview normally takes around an hour to complete (occasionally this section is replaced with a video interview, but this is unlikely).
The interview stage is your final chance to demonstrate your skills, enthusiasm and passion for the role and becoming a part of P&G.
The panel will ask you several competency-based questions. Try to sell everything that makes you qualified and unique, while relating the questions back to the role you’re applying for, so the panel can see the relevance of your answer.
Prepare by looking at common interview questions, practising your interview techniques, doing some in-depth research into P&G and the role you’re applying for. And most importantly, be confident in your skills and abilities.
How to pass the P&G online assessment
Practice really does make perfect when it comes to aptitude tests. As you don’t need to know any specific knowledge, the best way to prepare for your P&G assessment test is to take some practice tests. This will help you become familiar with the format and style of questions, as well as working under time pressure. Make sure to also review your answers after to see where you may have gone wrong.
Focus on your weaknesses
Focusing on your weaknesses will make the biggest difference to your overall test score and ensure you are strong across the board. A good way to identify your weaknesses is to review your answers after practice tests.
Read the questions carefully
Many candidates often lose out on marks due to not reading the questions quickly and misunderstanding what it is asking you. So, it’s important to read each question carefully, without making assumptions.
Research the company
P&G will want to see that you are knowledgeable about the company and the wider industry, so it is important to do some research prior to the application process. Doing some thorough research will help prepare you with all the information you need to answer application or interview questions effectively. Good places to find information are on the company’s website and careers page, their social media pages, and even the news.
Practice common interview questions
The most effective way to prepare for the interviews is to practice common interview questions. This will help prepare you for whatever the interview throws at you. When practicing try to use the STAR (situation, task, action, and result) technique to ensure your answers are specific, concise and relevant.

This test is about understanding data quickly without a descriptive explanation. You have to understand the questions and quickly figure out the best way to solve the problem.

The time isn't enough
I didn't find the answers to be very hard, but the time was a big pressure and simply wasn't enough to answer all the questions.
April 13, 2022
20 minutes is too short
I think we should at least have 30 minutes to do the questions, because some of them required us to write down our steps.
March 07, 2022
Very tough test with lengthy calculations. There should be less scrolling, so that in 1 view we can have the full question visibility.
March 06, 2022
Read the passage carefully
I like the fact that the test is clear and straight forward, and I dislike the fact that it is full of business maths only.
November 08, 2021
Questions unclear in units
I liked the easy to answer format but found some questions unclear on what units the graphs represented

Some questions are hard to understand
Thanks for the example. I read some questions so many times to understand what it wanted, because my answer is not near any of the possible answers.
September 10, 2021
It was a fun test, after a long time not doing questions like these; brings back a lot of memories of being back in high school and college. The only thing that I dislike is the graph isn't really working well.
July 12, 2021
It's quite tricky
It's based mainly on mathematics and requires more time to understand and solve the questions.

Overall test was fine
It was fine overall from a testability perspective. However, it did not include the main Interactive assessment of the P&G test, such as the grid challenge.
