Design Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Monroeville, PA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Philips Healthcare in May 2013.

Interview Details – I applied for this position during the end of my last semester of college. I initially presented my work to one of the senior Industrial Designers during an informal conversation at a school job fair. He was liked my work and invited me back the next day for a more formal interview which called for a more extensive presentation of my design work to date. It went well, and the following week I was contacted to come in and present my work to the Industrial Design team as a sort of 'final interview' stage. I conducted the presentation about 3 weeks after my initial interview, and received an offer about a week after that.

Interview Question – There was not really one single question that stood out to me, just expect to be presenting to a whole team of designers for the final interview (5+) and not just a one on one sit down type of deal.   Answer Question

Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

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

Interview Details – The company posted the position in March and I applied soon thereafter.
Interview process started only after I had an inside reference prod HR and the hiring manager after my reference recommended me for the position. First interview was with a junior recruiter who asked the basics. Second interview was with a senior recruiter who dug a little more deeply into my background. Both were phone interviews. The next interview was an hour long phone interview with the hiring manager who promised an in person interview with his peers. That was scheduled, met with the peers and the hiring manager for a sum total of 5 hours. The last interview was the division head which was all of 30 minutes. Count the amount of time I spent.. a sum total of 7.5 hours. Unreal! That’s time I will not get back. While I did not get an offer, I had to follow up no less than 20 times to finally get some closure. Found the process to be very unprofessional.

Master Data Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Philips Healthcare.

Interview Details – The Philips career website is easy to use but it seems like your stuff goes into a black hole. It took about a month to get a call-back on one of my applications, but the interviewer scheduled a first in-person interview relatively quickly. The interviewers were polite and thorough and a decision was made shortly after my 2nd interview.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5 years?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There wasn't really a negotiation. They presented a formal offer letter, and I accepted.
