    (Translated from English)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Philips Electronics (Amsterdam (Netherlands)).

    Interview

    Vrij lang proces, ik moet toegeven dat ik de hoop voor een paar maanden had verloren na niks te hebben gehoord (via website aangemeld) Alleen later wanneer het proces was begonnen, begon ik te integreren en om te gaan met extreem slimme managers.

    Quite lenghty process, I must admit I had lost hope after few months not hearing any feedback (I applied via website). Only later, once the process kicked off, I interacted and exchanged with extremely bright managers

    Interview Questions

    • Hangt ervanaf af, de hele rare situatie was dat ik een volledig gedifferentieerde interviewstijl meemaakte, eentje praatte tijdens het hele interview, de andere luisterde alleen maar etc.   Depends, the very weird situation was to have completely differentiated interview style, one talked the entire meeting, the other just listened etc   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Philips Electronics (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Ik had drie interviews, elk van ongeveer 30 Minuten. Ze omvatte gevallen, hersenkrakers, fundamentele vragen zowel over de motivatie voor het solliciteren naar die specifieke positie als gewone vragen over financiën (DCF, WACC etc.). Alle interviews waren erg leuk en behulpzaam en dienden als hulpmiddel door het gehele proces. Ik kreeg binnen een week een telefoontje; en de algehele ervaring was zeer aangenaam, net zo goed als de mensen en de cultuur van het kantoor in het algemeen.

Involved cases, brainteasers, basic questions about the motivation for applying for that particular position as well as basic finance questions (DCF, WACC etc.).

I got a call within a week; and overall the experience was very pleasant just as well as the people and office culture in general.
