I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in February 2014.
Interview Details – Referred by a friend who works there. Scheduled a conf. call initial interview with primarily a single person asking the questions. Later that same day they contacted me to schedule an in-person interview for 5 days later. That interview lasted 4 hours and I met with 5 people. The hiring manager, the architect, and level 3, 4, & 5 software engineers. They were all very sharp and didn't focus on gotcha questions. 2 days later I had an offer in hand.
Interview Question – Had me comment on someone's code. Looking for me to offer advice on how to cleanup code, refactor, etc. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I had previously told the HR rep who setup the phone interview my desired salary. When the offer came it was exactly what I had asked for so I accepted it. It was a great offer and I didn't want to appear greedy by trying for more.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in August 2011.
Interview Details – It was great! I received a call from an internal recuiter and had a phone interview within three days, followed up by a panel interview a week later. The interviewers were well prepared and made me very comfortable. The only thing that took a long time wasn the background check - three weeks!

Interview Details – Using my university's recruiting website, I contacted an alum who got me in contact with the Philips recruiting team. I was referred to the director of imaging FEP for a personality/background interview (~45 min). About a week later, spoke with person in charge of Ultrasound specifically. Offer was made shortly after this phone call.
Interview Question – (paraphrasing) How do you deal with clients when they are clearly in the wrong but are demanding compensation for a perceived wrong? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Rates are set - not really a negotiation. But I'm not complaining - the offer included a high (for college grad) salary and great benefits, not to mention a vehicle!
I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in April 2010.
Interview Details – Attempted numerous times to apply to the position, and finally had to take another job to 'get my foot in the door'. When my interviewer for the alternate job asked me why I didn't put in for a different position, I informed him of my previous attempts. He immediately went HR and rectified the situation, and I was able to apply to the SQE position instead. That manager is now in charge of reverse logistics in Philips Respironics and I keep in touch.
Interview Question – Had to develop a process Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (pFMEA) for brushing my teeth. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Fairly straightforward, good benefits.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in January 2014.
Interview Details – I initially secured my interview through Software Specialists, who matched my listed skills up against what Philips was looking for to ensure a match. After I passed that step, I had a brief phone call with the hiring manager at the Monroeville location. It was non-technical, essentially ensuring that they had all of the information they needed from my resume. A few days later, I received a technical interview over the phone. One engineer spoke while the other listened in on the conference call. I was asked a series of questions regarding my .Net skills, both asking about my experiences and also asking specific language questions about C#. A few days later, I was called in for a face-to-face interview on-site. They gave me a wide variety of times and I wound up picking one in the morning. I met with three people. I was supposed to meet with four, but the fourth person was snowed in. Oddly enough, I was asked very few questions. Instead, most of the "interview" consisted of them telling me about the project and its details. I was asked a few softball questions regarding programming practices, including source control, architecting practices, and how I might construct a set of unit tests for a given situation.
At the end of the interview, I was informed that I would receive an answer within a day's time. As it stood, it took them two days, but I can't rightly complain, as that's surprisingly fast for most companies. Unfortunately, my start date was delayed due to issues with paperwork, but they had a drug test and papers sent to me the day after they offered me the job.
Interview Question – The most difficult question I was asked was regarding how I might design a set of unit tests for an incoming stream of numeric data with specific formats. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Prior to being offered the job, I was asked about my desired hourly rate and was told that I was not eligible for benefits through Philips, although Software Specialists offered a plan. As it is, Software Specialists negotiated an hourly rate a dollar higher than what I had initially requested.
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in October 2010.
Interview Details – The process involved several interviews including a panel interview with the group of people that I would be managing. The interview process went well and included several senior IT managers and directors. The process also included an interview with a business operaitons manager supported by the IT group which I thought was a good idea.

Interview Details – Recruitment at Philips is very streamlined and moves along nicely from start to finish. First step is a phone interview with a recruiter, then if approved, a group interview is offered. Philips is quite large, be sure to follow up (a few times) if you want to be noticed and considered.
Interview Question – Research "targeted interviewing." Recruiters and hiring managers are more interested in the impact you made when performing your previous job duties rather than the duties themselves. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No Negotiation
Interviewed at Philips Healthcare
Interview Details – The process is dead slow. Recruiter may contact after 3-4 weeks. He will submit resume to hiring manager. If s/he likes will take another 2-3 weeks to setup 1st interview. Then 2-3 more weeks for next round. The whole process has to complete to make a decision. If you are dropped from the list in between, you are not informed. When you try to reach out recruiter, it all goes to junk. Very unprofessional.
Interview Question – Do you have sales experience? It was unexpected because I never said that in resume or interview. In fact, they didnt mention it as a requirement in the job description Answer Question
