    Interview

    Als erstes hat man sich online über die Website von PMI zu bewerben. Danach erhält man einen Rückruf für die Vereinbarung eines telefonischen Interviews. Sollte man dieses bestehen, wird man zu einem eintägigen Bewerbungsgespräch eingeladen. Dieses beginnt mit der Vorstellung der eigenen Person und sollte zu Hause vorbereitet werden. Darauf folgen drei Interviews à 40-60 Minuten mit jeweils 2-3 verschiedenen Mitarbeitern. Die Themen wechseln von einem Interview zum nächsten; das Unternehmen gewinnt so ein recht vollständiges Bild von jemandem.

    Nach nur 2 Tagen erhält man eine eindeutige Antwort per Telefon.

    Enterprise Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Amsterdam (Netherlands)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    The process took 6 phases:
    - CV upload and screening
    - A call from a recruiter
    - Skype interview with the Hiring manager and one Data Scientist
    - Working on a case study
    - Presenting the results from the case study followed by another interview
    -HR interview

    In general, it is an exhaustive and time-consuming process. It took a lot of time to schedule an interview with the hiring managers, and once i had a time slot, there were last time changes ( instead of talking with the leading hiring managers i talked with one of them and with one data scientist) for which i was not informed. For the last phase of the process i got a lots of directions from the recruiter that did not completely match with the actual interview. And again i never got a chance to talk with both of the hiring managers.
    When i finished with my last interview they even asked me to wait for a month to get an answer.
