    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Got invited for an inteview for the position I applied to. Sent a thank you note to the recruiter/manager following the interview. Did not hear back for a few weeks. Called them to ask if they had any news, got informed that I did not get the job. 10 min later they call back telling me that there's another internship available and I get invited for another interview with a different person. I go for the interview, seems to go well but I still never hear back from them. 2 years later I receive an email informing me that I did not get the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (Perth, Western Australia) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Was straight forward. Essentially there was an assessment centre and then individual interviews. Overall, the assessment centre was the hardest part seeing that there were over 50 people which made the process very competitive and was difficult to stand out.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kraków (Poland)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Philip Morris International (Kraków (Poland)) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The first round interview is done over the phone, to explain the different internship possibilities and the particular requirements for each one. The second round is done over Skype, followed by a face to face interview at the office you're applying for and possibly several tests. As I didn't get past the first round I can only comment on the phone interview questions.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked several technical questions about Excel, e.g. pivot tables. The questions were more technical than what I was expecting for an HR internship.   Answer Question
