    The process is quite comforting and the hiring staff or interviewers are ready to hear you out. BE true and BE original and you will get through. Be good with your communication , be effective . They like soft spoken yet enthusiastic workers. Ethics and manners can be stressed upon so do not try to be a wildfire in Group Discussions.

    Financial Traineeship Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Eindhoven (Netherlands)
    Anonymous Employee in Eindhoven (Netherlands)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Philips Lighting in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and in a week received an invitation to verbal and numerical reasoning tests. Passed them successfully and was invited for one-on-one interview in Eindhoven. Pleasant people in the office and relaxing atmosphere.

    Most of the questions were related to soft-skills. I was supposed to give examples of why I am a good team player / pro-active / initiative and so on. By closed postures and gloomy stare of HR-manager I understood that will never get to the next stage. So in two months I received a negative reply.

    The interesting thing is when I asked to explain what "pro-active" means, I did not receive a sound answer. It was my first interview abroad and overal a positive experience.
