    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Philips (Cleveland, OH) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick and efficient. I interviewed with the hiring manager for the position and it lasted only about a half hour. That very day I had a phone interview with his manager who would make the final decision. I got an answer from them that same day.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Philips (Cleveland, OH) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had just one 30-minute interview in person. The interviewer (who became my boss) was very kind, and asked about my experience in CS classes as well as projects. He asked me a few technical questions as well -- no writing code, though. Just some knowledge questions that a decent CS student should be able to answer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Philips (Cleveland, OH) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Learned about a job opportunity and contacted a recruiter directly through Linked-In. He responded within one hour. An interview with two team members was scheduled within two weeks. Thought it went well and was told I would hear back in two weeks for another interview. I heard nothing so I contacted the recruiter. He explained the hiring manager was out of the office. Another two weeks went by and this time, the recruiter did not respond to my inquiry. In total, it took two months to get the turn down letter. I had asked if they were considering hiring a temporary worker and they gave a jumbled answer. Have had four similar experiences with this company over the years. Insiders say their hiring system is bad.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Philips (Cleveland, OH) in March 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was with a recruiter via telephone. The recruiter asks the standard questions regarding background, education, experience, potential fit and capabilities of performing the duties therein.

    Second interview was in-person, panel-based, and presentation style. You are asked to present a Powerpoint on yourself while highlighting 4-5 bullet points that are given to you by the recruiter preceding the interview. It is not meant to test your Powerpoint acumen but rather how you deal with the pressure of being the point person.

    Third interview was with the VP of the Midwest region.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Philips (Cleveland, OH) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Three sessions, 1) HR, 2) panel with multiple DQEs, 3) hiring director. HR asked deep dive questions, with very specific situation-interaction questions. Panel was tough; no chance to establish rapport; seemed to have the intention of weeding out the weak or unconfident. Hiring director at the end was there just to summarize and answer final questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Philips (Cleveland, OH) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Was contacted by recruiter, and phone screen led to scheduling an on-site interview. On-site interview took 2 hours, split between three interviewers, including the hiring manager.

    Most questions pertained to general DB concepts, as well as SDLC practices and my previous experience.

    Second interview provided more context to the job's in-depth requirements and a background of the other team members. An informal offer came at the end of the second interview, and an official offer came a week later.
