Network Engineer Interview

Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Philips Healthcare.

Interview Details

1. Phone screen/interview with HR representative.
2. Phone screen/technical interview the multiple engineers.
3. In person interpersonal skills interview with Director/Senior Engineer.

Interview Questions
  • Initial HR screen was fair and balanced.
    Technical interview was difficult and you had better know your trade.
    In person interview was very difficult. I left wondering if I would receive an offer. Many different interpersonal behaviorism questions and the Director wouldn't accept a typical boxed answer. He kept digging for difficult circumstances and waited for me to give him personal experiences regarding argumentative work circumstances, which I did. Oil and water circumstances where things boiled over, etc. I would say that if you tell the truth...you have good odds, assuming you're actually qualified. I would say one suspicious answer would probably cause the Director to take the offer off the table.

Negotiation Details
I was able to negotiate. There was not a lot of difference between what I wanted and the initial offer, but I stood my ground and eventually received an agreeable offer to my counter offer. I advise caution here. You had better be a good wordsmith and know how to word your counter letter before you decline the initial offer. The Director I worked with is a no non-sense personality type.
