    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Philips Healthcare.

    Interview Details

    The actual Interview was more informative than anything. Just told me about the job specifics, what I'd be doing etc. then asked to define quality. There was only one interview. However, I know that has changed a lot. There are multiple interviews now and they are more in depth.

    Three rounds of interviews. The first interview was the generic HR interview that included brief background and work history. The second interview was a panel interview and lastly I spoke with the hiring manager more about how my expertise would fit the role.

    I applied online – interviewed at Philips Healthcare.

    Interview Details

    Did a lengthy phone interview with a recruiter. The recruiter mentioned that they needed to hire someone quickly and would be scheduling face-to-face interviews the following week. I followed up with the recruiter via email about one week after my phone interview to see if Philips wanted to move forward with me. It has been several weeks and I still have not heard back from anyone. Not very classy.

    Senior Quality Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Philips Healthcare.

    Interview Details

    I applied on-line and got a quick response. A+

    I got several calls from different people at the same facility all essentially asking the same preliminary questions and wanting to set up a phone interview. B-

    The phone interview was vanilla, basically a resume walk-through with the standard questions "why did you leave, etc." C+

    After passing that low hurdle, I was cleared for a 1:1 phone interview with the hiring manager. Again, I was contacted by two separate people who were doing each other's job. It was clear that internal communication was faulty. C-

    The 1:1 was actually pretty good, with some thoughtful questions posed and artfully answered. Nothing too intense or difficult, but they showed that the manager had actually read my resume and wanted more background in my technical specialty, and had a plan. A

    Then came the request for the on-site interview. The two-person juggling really came into play here - the morning of the interview I got a call asking me to come in early as the person who initially set up the schedule had not looked at the second person's schedule. Didn't matter, because the second person was a no-show after all!

    At this point for most companies this is more of a "chemistry test" for peers and subordinates. Not here; this was a rehash of the phone interviews with the HR and hiring manager, and a seemingly endless parade of people who had little real interest in the open position, hadn't glanced at, much less read my resume, and it consumed an entire afternoon - 12:00 to 5:30 pm with no letup.

    The conflicting answers to my questions revealed that the interviewers were not on the same page as to expectations for the position, and the job (IMHO) was a suicide mission. I told the hiring manager about the conflicting statements and he was both confused and annoyed. F

    Overall it was poorly organised, poorly prepared, and a gross waste of an excessive amount of time. I really expected better. The idea that interviewees typically have to schedule vacation time to accommodate a half-day interview did not seem to occur to them, either. You are expected to be at their beck and call.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Philips Healthcare in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume on their careers website in December 2014. I recieved an email 3 weeks later from the corporate recruiter account manager about scheduling a phone interview for a screening. A few days later , the recruiter called to ask some basic screening questions..previous experience, salary expectations, and information about job that applied..ect, I then was told she will review my resume with the hiring manager and select a few candidates to bring in for a 1-1 interview. 1 week later got a call from the recruiter to set up a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager and a few members of their team. The next week met onsite with the hiring manager and a few people together via panel style. I had to do a presentation 20 minutes, then 40 minutes interview questions, and then 10 minute Q&A from me.

    A few days later, got a call from the recruiter informing me that they had an offer that they would like extend. Reviewed offer, emailed recruiter counter-offer base on my research for similar jobs in area and work experience. Recruiter reviewed my counter offer, and advise she will submit information to HR Director and Hiring Manager for Approval. Two days later counter offer was accepted. I then accepted the offer agreed. 1 week later completed background check, and drug screen. I then received a start date from recruiter after background check was completed.

    1. Do your research on the average job range for position applied
    2. During the intial phone screen give them a range of your expected salary if asked..I recommend at least 20K range.
    3. Sell yourself during the counter-offer, highlight your strengths and why you are requesting a higher salary.

    Customer Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Philips Healthcare.

    Interview Details

    Electronic application where resume is submitted. Resume is reviewed and if a position is available, an HR representative will call to ask initial questions. If the initial screen shows a person has the experience and credentials for the job position, an aptitude test will sometimes be needed before continuing to the next interview stage. If the aptitude exam is satisfactory, the next interview will be with the supervising manager. A decision will be made based on that interview.

    Interview Questions
    • I would say the most difficult question would be the one a person doesn't know. The interview process is only to find people that are suited for the job. If a person doesn't know the answer, it's likely that person hasn't prepared for the interview or isn't capable of doing the job.   Answer Question
