Technical Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
No Offer
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.

    Average Interview

    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
