    Manager, Quality Systems Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Philips in May 2020.

    Interview

    I only did a phone screen but was not selected for the next round. I applied at the beginning of March 2020 and had a phone screen in early May. I didn't make it far enough to provide any additional feedback but wanted to share that it took a couple months to be contacted from time of application submission. Not sure if that is typical or if the pandemic slowed anything down.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Philips (Baltimore, MD) in March 2020.

    Interview

    After applying online, I spoke to an internal recruiter for a phone screen. Afterwards, I spoke to a manager about my experience and was given a coding exercise to complete. I was then invited to an in-person interview. The first part of the interview was a Q&A with a panel about my resume. For the second part, I was presented with a laptop and told to complete several coding exercises while one developer was present in the room. The development environment on the laptop was poorly prepared and I had to assist the interviewer to get it running. After about a week, I was told that I did not get the position since the interviewers did not understand my solutions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Philips.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by an HR rep. We did a short phone screen and then I did a 30 minute phone interview with a hiring manager. The hiring manager asked some tough questions but was friendly and told me a lot about the position. He also gave me feedback at the end of the interview which was very helpful. They seemed to want to move quickly through the process, as I live in the city where the position I applied for was but they only did phone interviews before selecting a candidate for the job.

    Supply Chain Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Philips in January 2020.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone screen and then 2 phone interviews that went well with current employees (one who was in HR and another who worked in SC), pretty standard stuff to that point. But then I had a 3rd phone interview with who I believe would have been my boss had I received an offer but my god from the start to finish he just made it clear that he didn't want to hire me and was just beyond unprofessional. He had called 10 minutes late without even acknowledging it and just sounded uninterested during the entire interview like he had somewhere else to be (which he clearly did because the call ended when it should have, despite the late start). At times I genuinely thought I could hear him snoring while I was answering some of his questions and for the majority of the questions that I asked him, he answered with 1/2 words or "I don't know". I was a little happy in the end to not get an offer knowing that I'd be reporting to him and would definitely consider applying to Philips in the future if the right opportunity arises since everyone else who I spoke with was more than happy to answer anything. That being said, for the sake of the company and his department I really hope they stop letting that guy conduct interviews.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Philips (Boston, MA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview. This interview did not feel particularly warm. It was most probably because my first point of contact was not a recruiter whom you usually talk to first before talking to the main engineering team. It felt like an interrogation.

    Interview

    Volcano Division

    Had discussions with the company recruiter and the hiring manager. Spoke twice with hiring manager actually. Followed by in person interviews which were a mess. Interview panel was also in all day meetings, the timing was shuffled, and the panel appeared stressed and tired. Additional interviewer added on the fly. Nobody seemed happy - not a single smile all day.

    The interviews were fairly straight forward. I left the facility feeling the division was disorganized and lacked vision. My gut told me something was off.

    After a week I followed up with the Philips recruiter to determine the status. Nothing. Two weeks later followed up again and was told the hiring manager wasn’t responsive and was traveling a lot.

    After another week I wrote the Philips recruiter and withdrew my candidacy and offered to follow up live if he’d like to discuss my reasons. I never heard from the recruiter again.

    I know from a colleagues who is a Philips executive the division has struggled and my belief now is that it’s clearly at the top.

    I’d recommend caution with the Volcano division.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Philips (Colorado Springs, CO) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Interview was brief but in depth. Manager interviewing was very knowledgeable and fair. I felt he asked the right questions to gage my hireability and for for both the company and the position. He took time to explain in-depth the job and benefit opportunities and what was expected in this position.
