Interviewed at Stryker

Interview Details – Submitted resume, planned for a phone screen, then invited on-site. Typical interview questions: Why the company, why your major, etc. Discussed a lot of what was on my resume, especially research and technical skills. Interviewers were friendly and casual - but do not dress casual, of course. Questions also on behavioral and technical topics.

Interview Question – All the usual questions, nothing too difficult or different.   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

Intern Interview

Intern
San Jose, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Stryker in February 2011.

Interview Details – "The Gauntlet" as they call it begins with a phone interview, typically, followed by a personality screening, and then an in-house interview. It's easy enough to look up the expected questions and answers they are looking for, but if you fake your way in you will likely not mesh with the company culture and will want to pull your hair out. The interview process is seeking out talented people - you need not have experience in medical devices or extensive knowledge on the company's background (just the basics to show you did your research).

Interview Question – What is your biggest weakness? (Always a toughie, but I was asked to reanswer after my first response was deemed not good enough!)   Answer Question

Interview Details – The Gallup interview was different than your normal interview. It is very behavioral. Lots of examples are requested. I can't share the actual questions due to their policy, but the experience overall was positive. Just be yourself and give yourself time to think before responding immediately

Interview Question – Gallup has requested that I do not share any questions   Answer Question

Intern Interview

Intern
Flowermound, TX

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Stryker in March 2011.

Interview Details – I had a really good experience with the HR team at Stryker! They are all very friendly and helpful throughout the entire interview process. There were three phases in the interview process: prescreening, Gallup phone interview and a full day interview at their offices. Each of my interviews were pretty tedious. They ask a lot of the same questions in different ways. For example they ask about leadership and personal organization. The company is looking for people who are very organized and have a type A personality.

Interview Question – On a scale of 1-10 how aggressive are you?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No room for negotiations as an intern.

Intern Interview

Intern
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Stryker in October 2010.

Interview Details – Just trying to see if you're a type A person. Not a very effective way of searching for potential employees in my opinion. I just skewed my answers to be as type A as possible and was offered a position. Declined because there is absolutely no way that I'd want to work in an office full of aggressive and manipulative people.

Interview Question – Do you like to tell other what to do?   Answer Question
