    Despite more current trends, many consumer products have been tested on animals. What are your thoughts on this?

      How to Answer

      The testing of products on animals has been a long time controversy in the consumer products realm. Discuss with the interviewer your thoughts on testing consumer products on animals.

      "Science has come a long way, and the need to test products on animals is minimal, if not non-existent. Overall, I'm of the mind that products should not contain harmful chemicals and the more natural they are, the better. That's one of the attractive elements of the Procter and Gamble philosophy - I'm impressed that the company has invested more than $410 million in developing alternative, non-animal testing methods and is committed to getting them accepted by regulators around the world."

      Michelle's Answer

      "Overall, I do not support testing on animals. I believe that science has come far enough that this practice is unnecessary. Consumers, on the whole, expect for their products to be ethically sourced and manufactured in a cruelty-free fashion, and are even amenable to paying a premium for ethically produced products if that's what it takes. I believe my philosophy fits well with that of Procter and Gamble - I was so happy to learn, while preparing for this interview, that P&G does not test its products or ingredients on animals anywhere in the world unless required by law."

      "I myself frown upon animal testing and animal cruelty as a whole. I am glad that science has come a long way, and the need to test products on animals is minimal, if not non-existent. Also, I am with a mindset that products should not contain harmful chemicals and the more natural they are, the better. That's one of the attractive elements of the Procter and Gamble philosophy - I'm impressed that the company has invested its resources in developing alternative, non-animal testing methods and is committed to getting them accepted by regulators around the world."

      Great! Showing the connection between your own philosophy and the company's goes a long way to demonstrate cultural fit. Nice work!

      "There is indeed a lot of controversy around animal testing. Personally, I am fond of all animals and don't really like this process, although I am aware it can't always be avoided. That being said, I was very happy to learn that P&G has invested a lot in order to become Cruelty-Free."

      You do a great job of expressing your personal opinion on animal testing and noting that it's a controversial topic. To build out your answer more, consider mentioning some alternatives to animal testing, including the use of cell and tissue tests and computer models.
