    Interview Details

    The process took about a month. Basically it is very standard: meeting HR person, group manager and other coworkers. But the questions are not hard. People from the company are very nice and got back promptly. What are learned from the interview is quite true in the real work environment.

    Questions about my past projects and algorithms and it was pretty easy, went ver well. in fact, I didn't even have to prepare or order one of those interview books for it. I did it on the top of my head after a stressful final. The questions were simple and I had no worries.

    Low key - was contacted by a recruiter first, screened by HR then face to face with hiring manager plus another leader. Followed up with 2 more phone interviews with senior leaders. Moved fairly quickly and resulted in a nice offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Philips North America in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume through university career center, and was contacted for an interview for four different internship positions, with interviews all on the same day. Interviews were with the managers you would be working with, and were half an hour. The interview was very informal, standard behavioral and scenario questions. A lot of it was them telling you about the position and what they do.

    Standard resume review. Very engaging. Asked a few questions to gauge your process. Nothing crazy, more to see how you react and your instincts. Not full case type questions.

    Sales Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Somerset, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Philips North America in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Panel interview, met with multiple department heads. Everyone was friendly for the most part but one interviewer was very unprofessional and left me sitting there by myself for quite sometime. I didnt get the impression anyone there was a true A player, so if that matters to you I suggest moving along. Seemed like a typical big coproration where alot of people just did busy work.

    Interview Details

    My interview process was very fast, but only because I got lucky with timing. The position is based in Andover, MA, but my would be boss is in Eindhoven, NL. It just so happens that they were having their yearly meeting and all the needed people were in Andover. For others, the interview process can drag out a bit.

    Interview Questions
    • I interviewed with three people at once. They asked the standard, "tell me about your yourself" and "walk me through your projects" type of interview questions. Nothing unexpected or unusually difficult. It's all about your portfolio and your ability to communicate the value of your work.   Answer Question
