    I went through the initial phone screening. The person from HR who did the screening call was very pleasant and very nice to talk to. She basically called to get initial impression of my ability to connect, present myself ,and project a positive image.
    I am now waiting to see if I get a call back from the regional director or not. After all a positive experience and was unduly nervous for no reason.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Philips Healthcare.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a position online via the Philips careers site. Was contacted by two recruiters who scheduled a phone screen with the hiring manager. The hiring manager called me for a discussion (about 40-45 minutes). The conversation felt a bit like getting drilled or interrogated. It eventually ended abruptly and the hiring manager mentioned that my recruiter would contact me to follow up. I reached out to the primary recruiter, but didn't receive a response. I later received an automated notification that the position had been filled.

    Software Quality Assurance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Andover, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Andover, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Philips Healthcare in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The entire interview process lasted 3-4 hours, and it included four independent interviews with different personnel from the department. The atmosphere was welcoming, and the questions were not technical in nature. You can expect to be asked questions that make you give specific examples from your work experience. And don't be surprised if you hear the same questions repeated by different interviewers; everyone uses the same STAR "play book."

    Interview Questions
    • In general, the questions were not difficult. Here are two:

      In your experience, what is the most challenging aspect of collaborating with clinicians?

      What is the difference between verification and validation?

    Pricing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The process is dead slow. Recruiter may contact after 3-4 weeks. He will submit resume to hiring manager. If s/he likes will take another 2-3 weeks to setup 1st interview. Then 2-3 more weeks for next round. The whole process has to complete to make a decision. If you are dropped from the list in between, you are not informed. When you try to reach out recruiter, it all goes to junk. Very unprofessional.

    Interview Questions
    • Do you have sales experience? It was unexpected because I never said that in resume or interview. In fact, they didnt mention it as a requirement in the job description   Answer Question

    Field Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bothell, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bothell, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Philips Healthcare in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online via company website. Recruiting Manager (RM) contacted me via e-mail within 2 days to schedule a phone interview. We spoke for about 30-40 minutes. She was pleasant and the dialogue was dynamic. After the call, she indicated it would take a couple weeks for her to discuss candidates with the hiring manager. I think it took longer, and every several days I would email the RM back to inquire of any updates. Things were not progressing quickly, but at the least, the RM was responding back to me, which I appreciated. In the end, the RM's final update was that the hiring manager wanted to look at other candidates. To end, the RM indicated that if there were other job postings at the company, I could direct any initial inquiries to her and she would help out however she could.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't think there was/were any. Pretty standard pre-screening phone interview, wanting to know background, work experience, etc.   Answer Question
