    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Philips Electronics.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through the Boston University career website and then was asked to interview at their office a few weeks later. I was also asked how I dealt with hard situations, and to give an example. Among other personality questions, the ones I remember are described below. They also liked that I spoke about my research experience in a lab.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked a puzzle question to test problem solving skills. It was a riddle about finding the heaviest ball in a group of seven, where 6 all weighed the same and only one weighed a different amount. The trick was to weigh it using a simple two tray scale, and use the minimum amount of weighs. I think this question is in the movie Die Hard, actually.   View Answers (2)

    The interview process was really smooth. Was invited for a full day of interviews with people from different backgrounds and functions. People at the same level as the one i was applying for. My prospective manager, and the boss of my manager. Everyone was friendly and helpful. They were interested not only about my professional career but also about my cultural background and personal experience. This was extremely helpful to be more relaxed.

    Got contacted within two days after the interview about the decision. It was a very fast process.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Philips Electronics in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    There was an initial test followed by short listing candidates. Then there were two rounds - one technical and one HR. They basically look for good technical skills. HR is just a formality. So if you do well in tech, there is high probability that you get selected.

    In the tech, they asked for my project and the part I played in it. Also, there were questions about linux and basic programming. Since I have written about web development in my resume, there were questions about web programming too. They basically expect you to own your work, so you should be able to specify you roles in the projects you have done and also, you should try to present any innovation you have done, since it will bring you bonus points.

    Also, dedication to the work and owning your work is given high priority, You can get in even if you have medium coding skills, but have an analytic mind persistent effort and willingness to study. All this will be evaluated in the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked about linux and its very specific commands. Since I was very well versed with linux, I was able to answer them.   Answer Question
