A Quick Overview of the PEAK Performance Assessment Before You Start
The P&G PEAK Performance Assessment comprises 4 separate sections and it’s untimed, although most candidates complete it within 20 minutes. The first two sections include multiple-choice questions and the last two sections include rating questions in which you must choose an answer on a certain scale.
Here are the 4 sections in their exact order:
- Situational Judgement Test (Multiple Choice)
- Leadership Questionnaire (Multiple Choice)
- Motivation Questionnaire (Rating Scale with 3 Options)
- Personality Test (Rating Scale with 4 Options)
The sample test on this page is given in the same order as well.
Last tip before you start:
The PEAK Performance Assessment is heavily based on the PEAK Performance Factors. These are the characteristics, attitudes, and behaviors that P&G measures to ensure they hire the most suitable candidates.
Here’s a list of these PEAK factors:
- Lead with courage
- Innovate for growth
- Champion productivity
- Execute with excellence
- Bring out our best
These 5 factors also include P&G’s Purpose, Values & Principles (PVP).
After reading the P&G PEAK Factors and the P&G PVP thoroughly, you’ll better understand how to approach the questions on the PEAK assessment and what matters most to the hiring managers.
And now, to the sample test itself:
