Project Manager Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Philips.

Interview

The company posted the position in March and I applied soon thereafter.
Interview process started only after I had an inside reference prod HR and the hiring manager after my reference recommended me for the position. First interview was with a junior recruiter who asked the basics. Second interview was with a senior recruiter who dug a little more deeply into my background. Both were phone interviews. The next interview was an hour long phone interview with the hiring manager who promised an in person interview with his peers. That was scheduled, met with the peers and the hiring manager for a sum total of 5 hours. The last interview was the division head which was all of 30 minutes. Count the amount of time I spent.. a sum total of 7.5 hours. Unreal! That’s time I will not get back. While I did not get an offer, I had to follow up no less than 20 times to finally get some closure. Found the process to be very unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Philips (Cleveland, OH (US)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was with a recruiter via telephone. The recruiter asks the standard questions regarding background, education, experience, potential fit and capabilities of performing the duties therein.

    Second interview was in-person, panel-based, and presentation style. You are asked to present a Powerpoint on yourself while highlighting 4-5 bullet points that are given to you by the recruiter preceding the interview. It is not meant to test your Powerpoint acumen but rather how you deal with the pressure of being the point person.

    Third interview was with the VP of the Midwest region.

    Applied for an internal position as an internal candidate. Still went through recruiter for the first interview. Then met 1:1 interviews with 3 people. Then had informal meeting with hiring manager which resulted in a final panel interview with the same three individuals where I had to present answers to project based questions.

    Interview

    Extremely irresponsible towards social aspects. They keep calling round after another and internally also keep scouting via references. So a person who comes for interview has to keep coming, live with long waiting time at reception. Respect for each candidate must increase.

    Straight forward and standard interview with a panel of HR, hiring manager and senior manager. There were multiple candidates interviewing for multiple roles. Most candidates were young and fresh out of business and engineering schools. HR was helpful to guide thru the whole process

    Interview

    Interviewed by Philips in Poland.
    Very unprofessional and mean recruitment.
    No update in each stage of process until you call them back. Although they seems that they are logging your answers to their recruitment process but finally hiring manager interview you in very traditional way.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Philips in January 2018.

    Interview

    Very long process. Interview meeting postponed multiple times. Meeting logistics not properly arranged (e.g. issues with accessing premises due to visitor not reported to the reception prior to the meeting; lack of proper planning of room availability- the interview was interrupted by another employee claiming the meeting room).
    Interviewers seemed to be not prepared for the meeting.
