    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Philips (Foster City, CA (US)) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I think the interview process really varies. You can start at as a temp. I've seen a lot of people hired from contract positions to permanent ones. Some hires are quickly brought on board. Some are put through a number of interviews. It really depends on your manager. It's not very regimented.

    Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Philips (Stamford, CT (US)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online in March 2019, in a few days the HR interviewed for the 1st round and next week a senior manager interviewed for the 2nd round. Next week onsite, 2 senior managers and a senior in the same role. First two round is just about 10 min each and the last one is 30-45 mins for each interviewer. One suggestion is to pay more attention to the first two rounds and it is kind of hurt since it took me 4 hours and more than $50 to go to the office for the onsite round and thought it was nice to talk but nobody respond, only get the result from the online application system. But people are friendly during the interview.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Philips (Andover, MA (US)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Referred by a friend who works there. Scheduled a conf. call initial interview with primarily a single person asking the questions. Later that same day they contacted me to schedule an in-person interview for 5 days later. That interview lasted 4 hours and I met with 5 people. The hiring manager, the architect, and level 3, 4, & 5 software engineers. They were all very sharp and didn't focus on gotcha questions. 2 days later I had an offer in hand.

    Interview Questions

    • Had me comment on someone's code. Looking for me to offer advice on how to cleanup code, refactor, etc.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I had previously told the HR rep who setup the phone interview my desired salary. When the offer came it was exactly what I had asked for so I accepted it. It was a great offer and I didn't want to appear greedy by trying for more.
