Marketing Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Bothell, WA
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Philips (Bothell, WA).

Interview

Not very good. They don't use recruiters. It is very hard for them to get folks. So they keep bringing people from Europe. So nowadays they are trying to hire anyone they can get. Since the turnover has been so high, unfortunately they don't have smart people who know how to conduct interviews anymore.

Interview Questions

  • I was shocked that they asked an inappropriate question. Something not legal to be asked in the US   1 Answer

Negotiation

None. They are very tight with money. The relocation package is quite good.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Philips in February 2014.

    Interview

    Long, disjointed, and unprofessional. HR seems not to have a process and they don't communicate with candidates. You will also meet with a bunch of folks have no direct impact on the process.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Philips (Bothell, WA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Longevity and experience precluded much of the interview process. I was the logical choice however I needed to prepare with my overall project and yearly reviews to promote myself.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you feel you work better as an individual or in a team situation? Can you show where you've tackled a project and problem and what the outcome was? Can you provide mentorship capabilities?   1 Answer

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Philips (New York, NY) in February 2008.

    Interview

    Referred to role by a current employee. First interview was an HR, "fit" interview where they asked basic questions on motivation to apply, and "why Philips". Important to try an answer in simple, short form

    Second round was with manager of BU, who got into more technical details of the role. I had some experience but not enough.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Philips (New York, NY) in December 2007.

    Interview

    Recruiter was top notch and no-nonsense. In person interview with managers was in depth and trying - 4 interviews in 8 hours but well worth it.

    Negotiation

    Philips doesn't negotiate. They make an offer and you accept or pass. Period.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Philips in January 2011.

    Interview

    Started with 2 phone interviews by HR folks not fam iliar with my skill set. This was frustrating. They were very knowledgeable of Philips culture and benefit so that was valuable.
    Then there were 2 rounds of 1:1 interviews, with 3 specific and different members in the field and later in related fields. In the end I met 6 folks, half of whom I would not be working with. Not sure what was the point. Then there was an all day test at an offsite location.
