Kalamazoo, MI

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 7 months - interviewed at Stryker in May 2011.

Interview Details – This was the worst interview process I have ever had. It spanned over six months because the HR people at Stryker are incompetent and complete garbage, as are the regular employees. It was a combination of phone, personal interviews that took place several times. Lots of repetition, inefficiency, and stupidity afoot. The HR people are also incapable of being quick about travel plans. I didn't get my itinerary or schedule until the day before my travels which can be VERY troublesome and problematic-- which occurred when there was an issue with my ticket.

This was the worst, most unprofessional and most inefficient interview process I have ever had. The people who were interviewing me were not intelligent and very sub-par. The people shuffled me around and didn't know what they were doing. This does not shine well to a potential employee. I ended up talking to a lot of people who work/worked at Stryker and they all encouraged me to NOT work there because it's a waste of time and it's better to go somewhere else, anywhere else because Stryker is not a place that values their employees or has good benefits.

My advice: it is easy to get a job here but you should really look into other options. This company does not care about you. When looking at the offer, I could tell that the benefits are NOT very good, vacation is sparse, NO sick days, performance review before a year occurs, can/will fire you at any time (at-will like many companies) and they expect you to work long hours with no benefit to yourself. Just from engaging with employees here, I could tell the culture is very unprofessional, very backstabbing, and tense. You will not find friends here. I am sure you can learn a lot, but you can also learn a lot at a bunch of other places that won't eat your soul.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Stryker in May 2010.

Interview Details – Interview process was very efficient and straight-forward. They were interested in me and were not afraid to to mask that by beating around the bush. It entailed a three step process toward ultimately being offered the position. I had the opportunity to meet with a sales associate on my university campus and then upon that successful encounter the Gallup interview followed. Next up it was meeting with the established members of management for the division.
