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.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Philips North America (Washington, DC) in July 2014.
My experience has generally been positive. Philips has a capable and well organized recruiting infrastructure that kept in good touch with me during the process and met schedules that they committed tom I have had 4 interviews. Two with HR, one phone interview with an SVP and an in person interview wit two groups of three. All were warm and conversational and I gained a better feel for the company through them. I believe the next step will be their deciding whether or not to make an offer. I am not aware of how long that process will take and this is my only frustration at this point.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Philips North America.
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.
Not much -- got a signing bonus but the salary was pretty much fixed.
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.
Recruiter sent message through Linkedin. set up call asked basic questions and gave good overview of position requirements. Professional, but position requisition was cancelled prior to interview. Good follow up.

Two weeks to get respond after application online. Two sessions of interviews, each 45 mins. One is from my project manager, he asked me a bunch of questions on my research area. The second is from another research staff. He asked me some questions related to machine learning and decision making.

I applied through other source – interviewed at Philips North America in March 2014.
I saw the internship post on a website, contacted the email provided and scheduled a phone interview in one week. The phone interview took less than an hour. First they asked about your research projects, interrupting with questions from big motivation to technical details. Then some questions about the techniques their project needs. Finally asked you to design an algorithm or strategy for a specific task closely related to their project.

Offer came after a long long time (after someone rejected the offer, I guess), and I have already accepted offer from another company
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Philips North America (Boston, MA) in March 2014.
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.
- Tell me about a time you would do something different. Answer Question
No negotiation, accepted their offer
