Field Service Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in June 2014.
Interview Details – Listing was posted on Indeed. Contacted company. Had a phone interview which went very well. Company was looking for mult-ivendor service. Awaiting response for face to face interview. Looking forward to challege if presented to me.
Interview Question – For me was when can I start. Being out of state and having to move would require some time. Wasn't sure exactly how to answer. I am always honest though. Answer Question
Mechanical Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through other source and interviewed at Philips Healthcare.
Interview Details – I never received an interview offer. I have plenty of engineering experiences, background and skills and have proven myself high competent and capable while working there at Philips as a contract engineer, but when I submitted my resume for a position I was qualified for I did not receive any interview offers.
Interview Question – The question being asked in the above statement is the most difficult or unexpected one I ever received. Answer Question
Field Marketing Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed 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 Question – I don't think there was/were any. Pretty standard pre-screening phone interview, wanting to know background, work experience, etc. Answer Question
Product Security Specialist (IT) Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in February 2013.
Interview Details – After the initial interview and 2nd interview, I felt the position as described, was not really what the hiring manager was looking for. After the panel interview, I was convinced my evaluation was correct. It seemed as though HR drafted the description, but the person I'd be working for had a completely different idea of what the position consisted of.
Interview Question – There were no particularly difficult questions asked. That was part of the problem, I approached it as IT INFOSEC position, but it seemed like they wanted more of a salesman than an INFOSEC specialist. View Answer
Software Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed 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.
Interview Question – What do you look for in your work environment or company culture? Answer Question
Function Engineer Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in May 2013.
Interview Details – Interviewed for a position as an engineering intern at Philips healthcare division. The interview went well, the pay was $20/hour for a 12 week summer internship. Did not get the internship, and did not hear back from Philips until I contacted them and they reported to me that they had hired another candidate.

Software Quality Assurance Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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 Question – 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? Answer Question
IT Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in October 2010.
Interview Details – The process involved several interviews including a panel interview with the group of people that I would be managing. The interview process went well and included several senior IT managers and directors. The process also included an interview with a business operaitons manager supported by the IT group which I thought was a good idea.
Pricing Manager Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Philips Healthcare
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 Question – 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
