    Undisclosed Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lisbon (Portugal)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Philip Morris International (Lisbon (Portugal)).

    Interview

    Applied online and then got called for an interview. Offered myself to go on the day and time that was most convenient for the interviewer but he still arrived 30 min late and was not quite warmly polite (not rude tough). Being that late is a sign of a messed up company culture, so I politely played along during the interview already knowing I would want to work there. Which is ok as the company didn't bother giving any sort of feedback after wasting my time, money and being late. Candidates get thourouly scrutinized everywhere they go for interviews, so companies must show no less than a flawless behaviour.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Philip Morris International (Almaty (Kazakhstan)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewing HR manager was 40 minutes late to the interview. After 15 minutes of the conversation I was told that there is no opening for a managerial job, but there is an open position for a lean engineer. I was completely misled. Of course I did not come to interview for an engineering non-managerial position.
