Marketing Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (New York, NY) in February 2014.

Interview

First and second round Skype interviews with HR and marketing professionals. The people I Interviewed with were very kind, and the process was overall very pleasant. First round with an HR person remains more qualitative and second round with product manager goes into a bit more technicalities but nothing too complex.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lausanne (Switzerland)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (Lausanne (Switzerland)) in September 2011.

    Interview

    The process was long, starting from recruiter contact to HR manager screening to 1:1 interview with VP of Marketing. But the direct contacts with people in the company were great experiences. People are unassuming and very easy to get along. This is a strong recommendation for people with marketing passion. The company has numerous resources and willing to take care of your interview logistics.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Istanbul (Turkey)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (Istanbul (Turkey)) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The first step is the screening process that they review your CV and Cover Letter. Especially pay attention to Cover Letter I'd say. They do not invite everyone, they choose people carefully. Then comes the online assessment, testing the basic maths skills and english level of candidate. The english test was especially very easy I think.

    Interview Questions

    • The time limit for the numerical test was a bit pushy.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was invited to second round but at that time I was in London and couldn't go back to Turkey because I had other pre-scheduled plans.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (Makati City (Philippines)) in April 2011.

    Interview

    It was pretty basic, after the head hunter interviewed me I was forwarded to the HR then direct supervisor then the marketing director. Although I have to admit though it was standard the turnaround was fast only took me 3 days before I get the offer.
