I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Philips Electronics in February 2008.
Interview Details – Referred to role by a current employee. First interview was an HR, "fit" interview where they asked basic questions on motivation to apply, and "why Philips". Important to try an answer in simple, short form
Second round was with manager of BU, who got into more technical details of the role. I had some experience but not enough.
