How to Pass the P&G Online Assessment?

Every year almost a million applicants worldwide go through the P&G screening process, and only about 1% get through the door. To be among the candidates who do get the job, you need to excel throughout the entire process, starting with the first online assessment:

In 2019, the old P&G Reasoning Test was replaced by the P&G Interactive Assessment provided by the company AON (formerly known as cut-e). These interactive challenges, Switch, Grid, and Digit Challenges, are unorthodox and resemble app games. With the PEAK Performance Assessment, the Procter and Gamble assessment seems more challenging than ever.

But don't worry, you are in the right place. We provide you with everything you need to prepare for what's coming your way. The timed practice tests will make you sharp and quick; the accurate preparation material will get you familiarized with the format and structure of all the P&G assessment questions; and the 2020 updated P&G assessment test PDF study guides are there to give you solving tips and theoretical knowledge.

Don't forget, our Customer Support team, plus leading experts, are there for you 24/7, waiting to answer every question you might have. Our goal is to help you learn how to crack the P&G online assessment, so you can achieve high scores, and eventually get hired.

P&G Assessment Test - Interactive Assessment Practice

The P&G Interactive Assessment is broken into three parts, formally known as switchChallenge, gridChallenge, and digitChallenge. Get a taste of the real P&G assessment test with these free practice questions

The Switch Challenge:

The cut-e Scales sx - Deductive-logical Thinking test, or in short - the Switch Challenge, measures abstract-logical reasoning. In each task there are 4 symbols that change position according to a specific rule. Your job is to choose the correct operator (out of three alternatives) that changed the order of the symbols according to that rule.

Sounds complicated? Here is a sample question from our PrepPack that will help you understand the challenge much better:

Question: Which operator is needed?




 
Answer & Explanation

The correct answer is (C).

In this question there are two rows of symbols and a missing operator. The operator changes the order of the symbols that appear in the upper row to a new order in the lower row. The digits of the operator represent the symbol according to its position in the upper row before it was changed by the operator. In order to solve this question, you should look at the first symbol of the lower row. Search the position of that symbol in the upper row. This position is the first digit of the operator.

P&G Online Assessment Switch Challenge Sample Question Answer

In this example, a triangle is the first symbol on the lower row. Its position in the upper row is second, so the first digit is 2. You can now mark answer 2341 because it's the only answer that starts with the digit 2.

​In case you can’t rule out the other alternatives, you will continue by checking the second symbol in the lower row - a heart. Then check its position in the upper row. Its position is third, so the second digit of the operator is 3. The third symbol is a star, its position in the upper row is fourth, so the next digit is 4. The fourth symbol is a circle, its position in the upper row is first, so the next digit is 1. ​

The correct operator is 2341.

As stated in the explanation above, the operator, consisted of four digits, changes the order of the symbols that appear in the upper row to a new order in the lower row. Each digit represents the previous position of the symbol underneath it, before it was changed. You need to choose the correct operator (out of three alternatives) that changed the order of the symbols according to that rule.

The Switch Challenge is not easy to understand just by reading information. however, practicing the challenge helps greatly, making it a lot easier than it sounds. It is vital to know, that the Switch Challenge can become more difficult as the test progresses, showing you much more complicated questions. The example shown above is of the first level of questions, and in our practice material you can prepare for all the Switch Challenge levels.

 

The Grid Challenge: 

AON’s Grid Challenge (Global Adaptive-Memory Evaluation) measures your short-term memory, your cognitive ability and your spatial orientation skills. Throughout the challenge, you are required to remember dot locations on a grid, while parallelly needed to answer different tasks.

Straight from our Grid Challenge study guide:

“Each question begins with a grid - a map of dots. One of the dots will light up and you will have just a few seconds to memorize its position. Following this question, the grid disappears, and you are presented with a spatial orientation question. You are presented with two parallel grids, and you need to determine whether the right and left grids are symmetrical.”

 

The grid challenge has different difficulty levels, that change according to the number of items you need to memorize and the spatial orientation tasks you are presented with. becomes more complicated with increasing difficulty level as you proceed.

In our full P&G Grid Challenge PDF study guide, and our new Grid Challenge Symmetry practice test, you will find ample information and preparation, to familiarize yourself with the test, and get you ready to ace it.

The Digit Challenge: 

In this section of the Procter and Gamble assessment, you will be given an equation with missing numbers. It’s your job to calculate and replace the blank places with the real numbers. This numeracy test (based on cut-e scales eql) examines your ability to perform numerical calculations quickly and accurately. You will be presented with equations containing a predefined result, empty spaces, and operators. Your task is to find a combination of digits that will replace the empty spaces and make the equation correct.

Here is a sample question from our Digit Challenge practice test:

Try replacing the empty spaces with different digits. But remember, each digit can be used only once!

Answer & Explanation

___ ÷ ___ + ___ = 5

Take notice of the order of operations, or BODMAS (Brackets, Orders, Division and Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction). Therefore, you should start with division: think about the numbers that will best advance you toward the predefined result. The quotient of the first two digits has to be lower than 5, because you need to be able to add a third digit later. For instance, if you choose 9, you can divide it by 3 and get 9÷3=3, which is close to 5.

If you apply it to the equation:

_9_ ÷ _3_ + x = 5

3 + x = 5

x = 2

Therefore, a possible solution is (9, 3, 2).

Other possible solutions: (4, 2, 3), (2, 1, 3).

 

Although calculators are not forbidden on the real test, the device provides little added value. Logical thinking is far more important here than your ability to make fast calculations.

In the real Digit Challenge, you will be able to drag each digit to an empty space in the equation, using your computer mouse.


P&G Assessment Test - P&G PEAK Performance Assessment

The PEAK Performance Assessment test (once called the P&G Success Drivers Assessment), is similar to the SJT (Situational Judgement Tests). While this test is not timed, it typically takes the test taker 20 minutes to complete.

The PEAK Performance assessment is used to measure skills and abilities that don't always come across in an interview. It helps employers gain a better understanding of your compatibility with the company and your prospective position. Furthermore, P&G utilizes this specific test to analyze your background, experiences, interests, and work-related attitudes against P&G competencies. 

On the PEAK Performance Assessment, you will face two kinds of questions – multiple choice questions and rating questions:

The rating questions are fairly simple - In these questions, you are presented with statements that you need to rate: Very Untrue, Somewhat Untrue, Somewhat True, or Very True. While taking the assessment, it is essential to take into consideration Procter and Gamble’s PEAK Performance Factors, which are defined by P&G's integrity-driven PVP (Purpose, Values, and Principles). These factors are as follows: “lead with courage; innovate for growth; champion productivity; execute with excellence; Bring out our best.” 

In the multiple-choice questions, you are presented with a scenario and four options on how to react. Let’s see an example from our PrepPack:

Question: You are doing a performance evaluation for Janet, one of your team supervisors. Which of the following should you avoid doing during the review?





 
Answer and Explanation

Worst response: B

Core competency: encouraging employees’ development

Secondary competencies: supervising performance, effective communication

This is a question about employees’ training and development, as well as your need to supervise their performance. More specifically, the question discusses appropriate and effective ways to provide feedback. The question asks what you should avoid.

Employees’ ability to manage time and resources (response A) is relevant to their work effectiveness. Hence, it is relevant and beneficial to address this aspect of their work in their review. Providing feedback and suggesting strategies could help them improve their work and become more efficient.

Response B implies that since receiving negative feedback could feel uncomfortable, it’s better to keep it general and thus avoid hurting the employee. However, general feedback is less effective – it’s vague, might be less coherent, and can be misunderstood easily. Moreover, the more general the feedback is, the more room for the employee to guess what you really mean or feel your discomfort in providing this feedback. Your avoidance could make a big deal out of something that could be simpler. In short, providing clear and specific feedback is more effective.

This response is the one that should be avoided. That being said, providing negative feedback should indeed be done with sensitivity, focusing on improvements rather than pointing out errors. This response lacks effective communication skills and could also make you seem to lack confidence.

Responses C and D could seem very personal – addressing your employee’s personal goals or discussing her relationship with you. However, before you cross out one of these options based on a hunch, try to approach each one calmly and consider it analytically. Are there any situations in which these topics could be relevant?

An employee’s career goals (response C) are a relevant topic for discussion. One of your goals as a manager is to help your employees develop professionally, for both the benefit of the organization and the employee. Discussing your supervisor’s goals enables you to establish shared goals and direct your supervisor’s development (tasks she would be assigned to, professional courses she may take, etc.) accordingly.

Your supervisor’s acceptance of authority (response D) is relevant to your ability to work together. Employees’ acceptance of authority is essential for their ability to work under management. While differences of opinion and disagreements will happen and – if discussed appropriately – could contribute additional views and ideas; when your supervisor refuses authority or your relationship is problematic, work would be much more difficult.
