    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Long, disjointed, and unprofessional. HR seems not to have a process and they don't communicate with candidates. You will also meet with a bunch of folks have no direct impact on the process.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    This has been a fairly standard length process. I applied online via Monster, which then took me to Philips job site to apply there. I received a phone call for a phone interview at the end of which a face to face was scheduled.

    It seems long when you're hopeful and have your heart set on a job, but it's fairly standard. I was initially interviewed in July, both phone and 1:1. The first phase, I was told I would have details by a certain date, but then told they did not have enough positions open at this time. They would be in touch in the future. I was called back in late August with the news that there was another position open and if I would be amenable to another interview with a different person. Position offered and accepted, now waiting on required background checks.

    The interviewer described the job in full and asked questions appropriate to the description and what was expected. We went through my resume where points were highlighted and inquired about . Asked about willingness to work a variety of hours, etc.

    With a company as big as Philips, I would expect lateral and upward growth as a possibility, especially when you take into account their benefits package, which includes tuition assistance, etc. I would think that ambitious people who work hard, enjoy the company culture and ethics, etc., could find movement and growth. I sure hope to!

    Interview Questions
    • None really. The interviewer asked standard questions regarding what you consider your strengths and weaknesses, how do you react to stress, what would you do in case A, B, or C, etc. Give an example of a time you excelled at [skill here]; give an example of how you failed at [skill here/task/goal]. What did you learn from both experiences? etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I have been out of work for some time and did not negotiate at all. While my past experience, skill sets, and degree could be an argument for more money, I was eager to be working and for a company that could offer growth and a lifelong career, not just a job.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I was contacted by Software Specialists (primary vendor) for full time position for Philips. And quickly scheduled a telephonic interview with manager at Philips. It was brief talk about my experience and some technical questions. and then i was called for in person interview. They provided expense (it took 3 months to re-embers though). It was about 3 hours interview by 4 different people ( about 40 mins each). It was one after other with 5 mins gap in between. Then, i was told that HR from Philips will get back to me. And HR got back to me after a week or so and asked me to standby while they are working on some approval process. It took almost a month and half before they offered me. Every once in a while he would come back to me and tell me that they are still working through the approval process. I was frustrating at times as i was not able to get hold of HR for updates (I could not get him on phone and no response to voice message). Finally they offered me and scheduled joining date.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I think the interview process really varies. You can start at as a temp. I've seen a lot of people hired from contract positions to permanent ones. Some hires are quickly brought on board. Some are put through a number of interviews. It really depends on your manager. It's not very regimented.

    Interview Questions
    • You are asked a lot of situational questions and question that are meant to get to who you are and what your values are.   View Answer

    QA Complaint Coordinator IV Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alpharetta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    The Philips recruitment process works through a Recruiter who pre-screens the resume of the candidate to present to the hiring Manager. I had a phone interview with the Recruiter who vetted my resume and decided that I was a viable candidate to be sent to the hiring Manager to schedule a face-to-face interview with. After scheduling the face-to-face interview with the Manager, the Recruiter called back to then give me some prep and background on the job description and asked me to follow up after the interview. For the interview, I met only with the hiring Manager. The interview process was really straight forward and I was informed of the timeline for a decision/offer to be made. During the week after my interview I was offered the position and I accepted.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question for me was to identify my weakness(es). The reason for this is because I am somewhat uncomfortable with discussing my weaknesses with anyone for fear of judgment. But I was able to overcome this fear and be transparent and provide the things that I am aware that I need to work on.   Answer Question
