What Is The P&G Online Assessment?

The P&G Assessment Test is a challenging series of cognitive and behavioral tests used to select suitable candidates for a variety of leading positions. It includes three interactive gamified tests - the Switch Challenge, Grid Challenge, Digit Challenge, and the Procter and Gamble PEAK Performance Assessment

The Procter and Gamble Online Assessment uses multiple aptitude tests in order to gain an in-depth understanding of the candidate's abilities, measuring cognitive abilities such as numerical reasoning, spatial orientation, memory, and more. It also includes the PEAK situational judgement test, to measure the candidate's behavioral characteristics. 

Some of the aptitude tests are adaptive, meaning that the difficulty of the questions changes based on whether you got the question right or wrong - becoming harder after a correct answer, and easier after a mistake.

Another unique characteristic of the P&G assessment test is that it is gamified, meaning each question you answer appears as a game or puzzle. Don't be fooled though - the fact that it's gamified doesn't mean that the questions are easy, far from it.

Tip: keep in mind that the questions are adaptive, if the questions appear to be getting harder, you are actually improving and on your way to acing the P&G Assessment Test!

Switch Challenge Test

The Switch Challenge Test (also known as the AON Deductive-Logical Reasoning Test) measures your ability to identify patterns and deduce rules from them. In each task, there are four symbols that change position according to a specific rule.

Your job is to choose the correct operator (those number sequences you see in the image below) that changed the order of the symbols according to that rule. You will have five minutes to answer as many questions as possible.

Sound complicated? Take a look at this question from our Procter and Gamble PrepPack™:


P&G Switch Challenge Sample Question 1

P&G switch challenge test sample question


What is the correct operator?

Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The correct answer is (4132).

In this question, there are two rows of symbols and a missing operator. The code changes the order of the symbols 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.

Take a look at the first operator – (2314). The first digit is 2. If that is the right operator, that means that the second shape on the top row – the purple triangle – should become the first shape on the bottom row.

But as we can see, the first shape on the bottom row is the red rhombus. Now we can know that the first operator is not the correct answer, and we can rule out this option.

Now, take a look at the last operator (4312). The first digit is 4, which means that if this operator is the correct one, the last symbol on the top row – the red rhombus – should become the first symbol on the bottom row. And that’s true!

But note, you cannot be sure this is the correct answer as long as you don’t check the other digits (or rule out the middle operator). This case is a bit tricky, as the second and third operators begin with the same digit.

If we continue with the third operator, and check the next digit, 3, we can see that this operator is not the right one. If it were the right operator, we’d expect the yellow hexagon to appear as the second symbol on the bottom row.


With a tight time limit and increasingly difficult questions, you will need to practice to get a good score on this section of the P&G Assessment Test. A LOT.

One of the best ways to improve your Switch Challenge Test skills is to practice different levels with the same time limit as the actual test.

P&G Digit Challenge

This section of the P&G Assessment Test examines your ability to perform numerical calculations quickly and accurately - you have five minutes to answer as many questions correctly as you can. 

You will be given an equation with missing numbers, and your task will be to find a combination of digits to replace the empty spaces and make the equation correct.

Take a look at this P&G Digit Challenge sample question:


P&G Digit Challenge practice question


Take notice of the order of operations, or BODMAS (Brackets, Orders, Division and Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction). You should start with multiplication by thinking about the numbers that will best advance you toward the predefined result. The quotient of the first two digits must be lower than 27, because you need to be able to add two digits later.

For instance, if you choose 4 and 5, you’ll get 4*5=20.

Then, you’ll need to find the other digits that’ll get you to 27. That is, two digits with a sum of 7 (the difference between 27 and 20).

Note: you can’t use the previously used digits (in our case, 4 and 5).

Therefore, A possible correct answer is (4*5)+6+1.

Of course, there are other combinations of digits that will get you the correct result, and as long as you answer correctly, there is no difference between them. 

Keep in mind that in the most difficult levels, you may get a calculation of more than 500, for example (_ * _ * _ ) - 2 = 502 (the answer is "7", "8", "9").


Can You Use a Calculator on the P&G Test?

You are allowed to use a calculator in the P&G Digit Challenge. In fact, an important step in preparing for this section of the P&G online assessment is to remind yourself how to use the basic functions of the calculator quickly and accurately. 

In our P&G Assessment PrepPack, you will find more tips and hacks to help you solve the more complicated questions, as well as unlimited Digit Challenge questions with a time limit - just like the real thing.

P&G Grid Challenge

The P&G Grid Challenge is a unique and complex spatial reasoning test that measures your short-term memory, cognitive ability, and spatial orientation skills. 

In this challenge you are presented with a series of alternating spatial and memory tasks. At first you are presented with a grid, or a map of dots. One of the dots will light up, and you will need to memorize its position. 

In the next step of the grid challenge, you will need to answer a spatial orientation question in which you compare two patterns. You then continue memorizing locations on the grid and answering spatial orientation questions, until finally you must identify the locations of each of the dots on the grid.

The difficulty rises with every round of memorization that's added, and the number of memorization sections in the grid challenge can range from two to five (the same is true for the number of spatial orientation questions).

The P&G PEAK Performance Assessment

The P&G PEAK Performance Assessment is a combination of a Situational Judgement Test (SJT) and P&G personality test that helps employers understand your compatibility with Procter and Gamble and your prospective position. While it's not timed, P&G candidates generally need about 20 minutes to finish the PEAK performance test.

In the P&G PEAK Performance Assessment there are two main types of questions:

  • Multiple choice questions with four options, typically used for the situational judgement test. In these questions of the PEAK performance test, you will be presented with a scenario you might encounter working for P&G, and four options on how to proceed.
  • Rating questions with five options, typically used for the P&G personality test questions. In these questions you will need to select which option best describes you, based on various statements regarding aspects of your life. 

Let’s solve a situational judgement test multiple choice PEAK Performance Assessment question from our Procter and Gamble Assessment PrepPack:


You are writing a performance evaluation for Janet, your Team Supervisor. Which of the following should you avoid doing during the review?

A - Examine her ability to manage time and resources.
B - Keeping your negative feedback as general as possible.
C - Ask her about her own career goals.
D - Talk about how she responds to your authority as a manager.
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

In the question, you're asked what solution to avoid.

It focuses on how to train and supervise employees and on the best methods for providing feedback.

Tip: In order to make a decision, you must organize each evaluation category by level of importance.

Core competency: encouraging employees’ development

Secondary competencies: supervising performance, effective communication

Employees’ ability to manage time and resources (response A) contributes to work effectiveness.

Hence, addressing this aspect of their work by providing feedback and suggesting strategies could improve their work and efficiency.

Avoiding hurting employees’ feelings (Response B)

Implies that since receiving negative feedback could feel uncomfortable, it’s better to choose a neutral response.

The problem, general feedback is less effective – it’s vague, might be less coherent, and can be misunderstood easily.

Employee’s career goals (response C) are a relevant topic for discussion.

One of your goals as a manager is to help employees develop professionally.

Both for the benefit of the organization and the employee.

Discussing your employee goals enables you to establish shared goals.

Which you can use to direct their development such as:

Tasks they would be assigned to, professional courses they may take, etc.

Employees’ ability to accept authority (response D) is essential for their ability to work under management.

Differences of opinion and disagreements can erupt.

If handled appropriately, they could add value in the form of new perspectives and ideas.



P&G PEAK Performance Assessment Tips

  • Make sure to have a distraction-free environment available for at least 20 minutes to answer the PEAK Performance Assessment in.
  • You must answer all the questions in the PEAK Performance Assessment - you won't be able to submit your answers otherwise. 
  • Contrary to popular belief, there are right and wrong answers in the SJT and personality test. Preparing for them in advance can greatly improve your chances of passing. 
  • While taking the P&G PEAK Performance Assessment, it is essential to consider the P&G PEAK Performance Factors, which are defined by P&G's integrity-driven PVP (Purpose, Core Values, and Principles).

Is the P&G Assessment Test Hard?

The P&G Assessment Test is unlike any other pre-employment test you've seen. Here are some unique characteristics of the P&G candidate assessment:

  • The Test Is Adaptive. The better you are, the harder it gets. That means it is super important to ace the first questions of every reasoning test you’re taking - once you get a question wrong, you are demoted to less difficult questions.
  • Tight Time Limit. You need to answer correctly and fast. The Switch Challenge Test and Digit Challenge are limited to 5 minutes, during which you’ll be required to answer as many questions as you can.
  • Unique Question Types – These questions do not resemble anything you’ve encountered in high school, college, or even other psychometric tests. The solving techniques are different and you need to know how to approach every question of the P&G candidate assessment correctly.

P&G Assessment Test Tips 

The P&G online test isn't easy, nor is it meant to be. The time pressure, increasingly complex questions, and the natural anxiousness you feel during assessment tests can lead to wrong answers. We've compiled a few useful tips to make the P&G assessment test a little easier:

  • Similar to other multiple choice tests, if you're not sure of the correct answer, elimination can be helpful in the P&G PEAK performance assessment. 
  • Make sure you memorize the multiplication table perfectly - it will help you save time by reducing your need for using a calculator. 
  • Practice! Yes, practice is vital for any assessment test, but the unique nature of the P&G assessment test means that without accurate practice that introduces you to the four types of questions, you are depriving yourself of a serious leg up. Have a look at some more Procter and Gamble assessment practice questions here!
  • Learn to work fast - having enough time to reach the higher level of the challenges requires excellent time management. There's no magic solution for this, only hard work with accurate prep materials.

P&G Interactive Assessment FAQs 

How do I know if I passed the P&G online assessment?

You will receive a pass / fail message to the email address you provided in the online application process. 

How many levels should you clear to pass the P&G online assessment?

As with many aptitude tests, the levels you should clear to pass depend first and foremost on the position you are applying for.

If however we assume that the requirement is to reach the advanced levels of each challenge, you should aim for level 5 at least in the switch challenge test, reaching four or five memorization sections in the grid challenge test, and triple digit numbers in the P&G digit challenge. 

How Long Does It Take for the Company to Send The Official P&G Assessment Test Results?

The length of the P&G hiring process can vary. Although most candidates get a pass \ fail message within a week of completing the online test, some will receive an online notification more than a month later.

So if you don’t get a message in the first week after the test, don't worry - I personally know a candidate that got a positive answer after 34 days.

Is there a P&G assessment test passing score?

There are passing scores for the P&G assessment test however they are not public. Candidates will only get a fail or pass response from P&G, and the P&G assessment test results will remain confidential.

According to a P&G worker:
“The score is not public, and most employees don’t know it; I can only tell you that it is much lower than most people would expect; there are wide gaps between passing scores of applicants across regions and countries”

How Long Does the P&G Assessment Take?

The P&G assessment test takes about 50 minutes to complete. 

The cognitive ability section of the online test which includes the digit, grid, and switch exams takes 30 minutes to complete, while the PEAK Performance test takes about 20 minutes.

Is There a Deadline for Taking the Assessment Once the Link Is Received?

Missing the deadline of the P&G Assessment is a real possibility. This is a question we encounter a lot, and unfortunately Procter and Gamble are not very clear on it.

We recommend taking the online test within 10 days of receiving the exam invitation. Any longer than that and there is a chance the position will already be filled, and your application will be canceled. 

Something else to consider about the P&G recruitment process, is that once you fail the test you must wait a whole year before you can retake it. 

How Do I Prepare for a P&G Interview?

Do Your Research

Learn how the job you’re applying to fits into the larger P&G goals, core values, and strategy. Examine the company’s recruitment process and watch videos for a glimpse into the daily life of a P&G worker.

Gather Supporting Materials

That can shed more light on your value as a worker whether through online portfolios, successful product launches, or community efforts demonstrating your commitment to success, at work and in your personal life.

Gather information with specific examples of projects you've done, and prepare to show them to the interview team.

Speak with Confidence and Ask Questions

You will be asked by the hiring managers about your experience as it relates to the particular needs of Procter and Gamble. Make sure you discuss your experiences in a concise, descriptive, and confident manner, whether in a video interview, face to face, or via phone.
