Technical Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)

Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Philips (Bengaluru (India)).

Interview

Interview Process took 2 days. HR from Philips scheduled my interview. Called me on a weekday.

On Day 1 interviewed by:
Technical Architect
Senior Technical Assistant

Once these rounds were done, called me next day, again a working day, which included:
Managerial Round
HR Round for Negotiations.

Manager was very insecure, thought that if offered I might not join them.

HR sent a offer letter, I must say with very good compensation, but recalled back saying approval needed from Manager.

After a month long follow up got to know, Manager was not sure if I offered I will join or not.
After my confirmation that I will join, a week after HR called to say that they can't offer me as the project was closed.

Though I kept on receiving mail from the same HR for the position.

I have never seen so insecure managers, who are not confident about their own organisation.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Philips (Bengaluru (India)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There were 2 rounds: 1 Technical round and 1 HR round
    For the technical round, I was interviewed by the architect. He asked me to explain about my previous projects. Questions were around that to assess how much I really understood what was done and why it was done the way it was done. This went on for about 20 mins.
    After this round, I was given a form to fill and then I waited for the HR round
    HR round was with the hiring manager and a HR person. Questions ranged from how much is your expected salary, is it negotiable, how have you handled mangerial challenges in the past, how would you handle conflicting task directions from architect and manager etc,,,,
     After this, I was told that I was offered. The official offer took about a month to be processed.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you handle conflicting task directions from an architect and your manager. Exaple being: if you have committed for a task which is assigned by your manager which you have agreed to complete in 5 days and your architect comes and tells you to pick up a task which takes about a day and is technically challenging but is not planned into your schedule   1 Answer

    It was 2 rounds of 1:1 technical interview. Then one more technical interview. After that HR interview and Director interview. So the questions asked were mostly to your technology skill set related and then what you have done in your previous projects. Also if your domain is releavnt then few domain level questions will also be asked.

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Philips (Bengaluru (India)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Philips Innovation Centre HR contacted via email. Initial telephonic round was scheduled which was OK. The guy just went through resume and asked few technical questions related to projects. Lasted for around 20-25 mins. Was asked to come for F2F. On the day of F2F the same guy along with his manager ran through technical round for almost an hour. They didn't have any questions coming from their own mind. Everything was how I did one thing or other in my projects. The way both presented themselves gave me an impression of bureaucratic organization where designation mattered. Manager didn't seem to be interested in the questions asked by his subordinate. Later I was asked to fill up 4 page form detailing everything right from education, every job, references, reason for change, goals, positive/negative things about self, ... Since the HR person who contacted initially was on leave that day I was attended by her team member who kept on discussing only salary and how I shouldn't expect for a raise since I was already getting paid more than Philips standard. He kept on emphasizing about Philips Brand again and again. Didn't find him convincing enough as he struggled to explain what better things Philips could offer. I was asked to finish my lunch at cafeteria within 15 mins as I was scheduled to meet the Director of the group. At least the lady seemed professional and asked about career, my past experiences and explained group's activity quite well. They told me that they wanted me onboard. Overall it took more than 4 hours.

    I was told that I would be reimbursed to and fro travels but when they sensed I wasn't interested they stopped all the communication and didn't pay the money. Probably a way of life for Philips HR.
