Human Resources Corporate Interview

Human Resources Corporate
Amsterdam (Netherlands)

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Philips Electronics.

Interview Question – Depends, the very weird situation was to have completely differentiated interview style, one talked the entire meeting, the other just listened etc   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Relatively quick
