    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (Sydney (Australia)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    My interview process for Philip Morris International's affiliate in Australia was outstanding. They were very accommodating to schedule the interview for a date and time that suited my schedule and had a panel interview with all the key stakeholders of the hiring process in the same room, so that I wouldn't need to come back to meet with each one of them individually.

The process starts online, where you're invited to do a couple of online tests (math and logic). If you pass them, you're invited to an On-Ground Assessment day, where you're involved in 4 different activities throuhout the day: 2 activities are to resolve cases with a team of 8 people (max), where your participation (and the quality of your participations) are strongly evaluated. 1 activity is a stand alone 5-minute presentation of a hard case, be prepared to read a lot and think more. The other activity is a series of 10-minute interviews with different people. The order of your activities and the people you get interviewed by, are random.
