Application Details

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Stryker.

Interview Details

The interview process was three interviews long. You can do trauma or recon. You work about the same amount of hours but with recon you don't have to be on call. You have to take a test and if you don't pass you won't get invited to the third interview.

    Interview Details

    Some of the interview questions they asked me were so off the wall stupid that it made me not want to work for them! They did ask some situational questions that pertained to the position. What motivates you? How do you feel about working a commissioned position? What career accomplishment are you most proud of?

    Interview Questions
    • What would you rather sell a john deer tractor or a Mercedes?
      Give me one word that described you as a child?
      What kind of animal would you be?
      What activities were you involved with in high school?
      What was your accomplishment in high school?

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted through recruiter and sent several emails back and forth regarding the position. Secured in person interview with hiring manager (did not have phone interview). Very standard F2F interview, fairly casual, short in time frame ~25min. I found it to be generally low pressure and not intimidating. Interview was located in a hotel lobby.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Stryker in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Facetime interview after HR phone interview. HR interview was very straight to the point only asking minimal questions about work history. Facetime was with sales manager and more intense asking questions about sales history, rankings, and other questions on what you can bring to the table.

    Interview Questions
    • Weird questions though like name three people you would bring to dinner with you and why. Other questions were the normal like tell me your strengths and what would people say negative about you that isn't true.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Stryker in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I first contacted the sales recruiter for my district. After they were quick to contact me back, we exchange e-mails and phones calls. First process was the Gallup phone interview, a character analysis and then a ride alone interview with the manager for the district.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult part of the whole process was the whole Gallup interview process. This was a very difficult and taxing interview, much more complicated than you would think.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Stryker in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called by their recruiter and did a 20 minute phone interview. She said they were setting up in person interviews in a couple weeks and she thought I would make it. I followed up a couple times and got the interview. I interviewed with the regional mgr and his colleague. I didn't feel I did great and ended up not being asked to move on.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Stryker in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was simple. You meet with the Regional Manager to discuss your personality and resume. When you move on to the next round, Stryker uses the Gallup Interview process, which is done over the phone. It's monitored by a third party. The interviewer can only ask the questions, and cannot reword it, give hints, or help explain. It's very non personal, which makes it difficult to gauge how well you're doing. The best piece of advice is to answer with your gut, and don't look back. Don't answer with simply a "yes" or "no." It's frustrating because you want to sell yourself over the phone, but Stryker does not hear your answers. They simply read what the interviewer dictates.

    We met in a local coffee shop and the interview lasted about 45 minutes. I was asked lots of behavioral types of questions such as well as "Tell me your three biggest accomplishments" and also questions like..."Define Professionalism" and "Who is your Hero"? He also asked alot of questions regarding work ethic like " Tell me a time when you went above and beyond for your client" and he also asked me about my current hours trying to find out if I was cut out for 70 hours a week.

    Contacted by an internal recruiter who put me in touch with the local territory manager. Recruiter was extremely cordial and said that OR experience wouldn't be necessary for the current opening. Had lunch with the local TM, went well, and then nothing.
