Senior R&D Engineer Interview

Senior R&D Engineer
Santa Rosa, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Medtronic in October 2009.

Interview Details – My phone interview probably lasted about 10 minutes with a talent manager. They asked about my medical device experience (I've a PhD in biomedical engineering but have only a year of industry experience). I think they were looking for experience with a very specific device which I did not have. The recruiter seemed a little disorganized, possible as if they were just trying to get through a high volume of calls with lesser attention placed on the interview content. No emphasis on my abilities, just my experiences. A challenge because my PhD research did not seem to impress. They asked me where else at Medtronic I thought I would fit in, and said they would call back in a few days with alternative opportunities. I felt okay at the time - as if they were interested in me but wanted to find a better fit. However, they never called back and have not responded to my follow up.
