    Strategic Planning, Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic)).

    Interview

    Long, very long! 5 month long! At least 4 people interviewed you & then you need to fill a couple of online test. Local HR team members first interview you, then the person you will report to & then his/her superior. After that they send you all the online test & then the last to interview you is an HR Regional team member. Then they make the offer!

    Statistician Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Philip Morris International.

    Interview

    The whole process was very well organised: at each step, I got all the emails with notifications, descriptions, instructions, etc.
    There was one skype interview with a hiring manager and a team manager, and then one interview in the company with both managers and team members. The last one included a presentation on a given topic.
    The questions were really good and sometimes challenging, but nothing too difficult, nothing too specific.

    I really enjoyed the process: it all was clarified to me, all the timelines were setted and met. The hiring manager really knows his job. He took me through the whole process so nicely, that I did not have to worry at all.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dubai (United Arab Emirates)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (Dubai (United Arab Emirates)).

    Interview

    They approached me. Scheduling the interview was a process since I was dealing with different individuals and there was clearly no communication between them. The actual interview lasted 2 hours and after they I haven’t heard a peep despite 2 follow ups. If a company is approaching a candidate they should be professional enough to at least get back to the candidate after an interview. A candidate’s time is just as important as a company’s.

    Interview Questions

    • The usual where do you see yourself in 5 years?
      Why PMI?
      Why do you want to leave your existing job?
      Technical questions.
      Also it was weird to have the HR person sizing me up during the interview with the hiring manager.   Answer Question
