    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (London, England (UK)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    I was contacted by mobile from an HR specialist where I received few questions to understand my availability to work in PMI and my English language skill. Then I was invited to the plant where I had the main interview together with the member of the talent acquisition team and the line manager.
    Finally I received a call for the feedback of my interview where they asked me to resume how was the job interview, my idea of the job opportunity and what I believed it meant work in PMI. At the end of my explanations I received a positive feedback.

    IS Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted a few days afterwards to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and it was about my motivation, what it's important for me in a job, why would I be a good fit for the position and so on. The person I interviewed with was really friendly and made me feel very comfortable. She told me she needed to check with the hiring manager but that she thought I would have gotten a second interview.

    I got a second interview with the HR manager and the hiring manager, the environment was very friendly and relaxed, I got again some general questions and some more specific ones about my experience and about the position. They also asked me several questions of the kind "how would you act in this situation".

    I didn't get an offer unfortunately. They asked me whether I wanted a detailed feedback and I said yes, so they scheduled a call with me to explain their decision. I found it quite helpful.

    The overall process was really smooth and they were really professional.

    IS Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Makati City (Philippines)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (Makati City (Philippines)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    You will be oriented with the needed role by a HR person via phone. If you accept, they will ask you to come to the office or they will already do the interview during the phone call. If they find you fit for the role, they will ask you to come to the office to be interviewed by the direct supervisor. Sometimes, this may be a panel interview together with other supervisors but most of the time it's a 1 to 1 interview. Then, you will meet the direct supervisor's supervisor for further interview.

    If you pass all of it, the job will be offered to you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (London, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The internship recruiment process is branded under Inkompass. The process included sending an application, doing numerical and verbal reasoning tests, a phone interview, then an On Ground Assessment (OGA). The OGA was definitely memorable, it is not what you would expect for a typical assessment day. It was quite a long and sometimes stressful day, but definitely worthwhile and rewarding. It was fun and informative in terms of allowing us to gain a deeper insight of Philip Morris through the eyes of its employees - who were always ready to answer whatever questions we had. The day included various tasks and interviews, as well as breaks and sessions of ping-pong which allowed us to wind-down inbetween the tasks. Overall the whole process was worthwhile, and I would recommend students to apply for the internship.
