Philips Mechanical Reasoning
Those applying for engineering, technical or mechanical jobs at Philips will be asked to take a mechanical reasoning test.
As you’d expect, this test covers mechanical basics and assesses how comfortable you are with concepts such as circuits, gears and electrical principles.
Although a lot of the topics should be things you’re familiar with, it’s still important to prepare beforehand and brush up on any areas you’re not so strong on.
If you’re applying to be a software engineer (or for a similar role) you’ll be required to prove your skills in the Philips programming test.
The subject matter will depend on the role but expect questions that probe your knowledge and ability to work with Java, DS and SQL, to name but a few.
Logical reasoning tests are used in the hiring process across a huge range of different roles as they can be a really useful indicator of how strong a problem solver or logical thinker a candidate is.
The logical reasoning test requires you to answer non-verbal and non-numerical questions to draw logical conclusions and assume answers from seemingly random patterns, shapes or objects.
It’s not easy, especially if you’ve never encountered questions like this before. It’s highly recommended that you try as many tests out as you need to before your Philips test, so you start to improve your speed, accuracy and confidence.
If you pass the selection of aptitude tests set for you, you’ll be invited to interview(s).
How many interviews you’re asked to participate in is dependent on the role you’re applying for, but you’re normally always interviewed by the talent acquisition team first.
They’ll ask you questions about your background, and how your skills and experience are relevant to the job you’re applying for. They’ll also ask you about your long-term career aspirations, and may even suggest other roles at Philips if they think you’re better suited to something else.
Then, you may be asked back for an interview with the hiring manager and members of the team for a final chat and the last opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have.
