    It was easy. They asked basics of strategic sourcing and negotiations. Once you show that you have handled various commodities by yourself before then its more or less done.

    Five phone interviews (30 minutes each) + a 2hr onsite interview with one of the HR directors and the hiring manager. HR Dir was 15 mins late, rude, argumentative & interrupted constantly during the interview. Definitely not a good candidate experience.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Philips Lumileds Lighting in August 2011.

    Went smoothly; large company, did background check. Cycled through a few people including VP of R&D. Met a few future colleagues. No challenging questions.

    Ipso facto is a Latin phrase, directly translated as "by the fact itself,"[1] which means that a certain phenomenon is a direct consequence, a resultant effect, of the action in question, instead of being brought about by a previous action. It is a term of art used in philosophy, law, and science. An example in law is money laundering: the act is not ipso facto illegal because it is an exchange but is done as a cover for something else, so the act puts the actions of an individual in question. A common English idiom with a similar meaning is "in and of itself".

    Interview Details

    Only typical questions, which last for 10 mints. Can you work in the US? What makes you choose Philips? What's your current experiences? What's your career goal? Do you have to relocate? HR speaks really fast, it seems he want to finish the interview earlier. It's Friday afternoon. In the end of interview he said he will consider any other positions available for me. But no email...even no rejection
