    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Philips (Andover, MA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The process was rather disorganized. I was interviewed and selected to receive an offer for a particular location I had applied for. After I went through the interview process, I was contacted and asked if I would consider an alternative location. I gladly said yes, at which time, I was told I had to re-interview for the same position in a different state.

    Software Quality Assurance Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Philips (Andover, MA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Philips in-house recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn. I had a 30 min technical interview with him. This was followed by a 15 min interview with General HR who then setup an onsite interview. Everything very professional to this point. My interview was with 4 people at the same time, slotted for 45 mins total. People were a Director, 2 Sr. Managers, and a QA peer level. 45 min interview reduced by 10 mins by walk to conference room and 2 late arrivals. They asked me questions for all but last 5 mins. Then it was what can we answer for you but we need to leave on time for a meeting. Then no word afterwards, despite stating on their own website – “If you’re not selected for the position, your recruiter will share this information with you as a professional courtesy and in acknowledgement of your time and interest in Philips.” Total BS. I have no qualms with not being a fit, but this was just truly unprofessional. I don’t know why they bothered to bring me onsite (and I wasted a vacation day for it, too).

    Interview

    HR email me to confirm the agenda, then she called me, she referred me to the hiring manager who think I'm not qualified. Although I had relevant working experience, but I failed.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Andover, MA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Philips (Andover, MA).

    Interview

    Normal Interview process. Applied for the position, about 1.5 weeks later received and email from the talent acquisition requesting the 1st phone interview. It pretty much was the standard background check, work history questions, and overview of the company and position.

    Next step was a 2nd phone interview with hiring manager. Very nice, and friendly, and more direct questions about experience and requirements. A week later, got called in for an In-person interview with hiring manager, and some staff members of the department. Interview was more formal, and tougher questions. My advice would be to do your research on the company, and be prepared for any and all interview questions that may be asked. Total in-person interview was about 2-hours or so. After the verbal interview, had to take a small excel evaluation in order to test experience, and answer a few questions regarding the spreadsheets and problem solving. For an average excel use such as myself, it was not simple.

    Interview Questions

    • One question that was asked was a behavioral question. They provided a scenario, and although the question asked had a final Yes or no answer, they were more concerned with what steps you would take in order to get to the answer. There is no right or wrong answers, but they want to know your train of logic, and see how you would solve the question.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Philips (Andover, MA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Informal phone interview followed by formal on-site interview with the engineering manager and several engineers of varying status. Some of the engineers had an intense attitude while others were very relaxed. The engineering manager was very supportive and engaged throughout the whole process. I never met the actual recruiter--he was involved in an administrative capacity only.

    Director of Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Philips (Andover, MA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Had 3 phone interviews and 2 in-person interviews. I was scheduled for a final interview actually with the hiring manager and 3 hrs before the interview they called and asked to reschedule -- then never called back. The recruiter wouldn't respond to email. Overall, the people I interviewed with were professional. The recruiter should have got back to me no matter what -- but didn't. It was weird that so many people interviewed with me before the hiring manager did.
