Interview

Initial face to face interview with RM and HR -> Gallup -> 5 additional rounds with a round robin in corporate at the end. The RM and HR rep. becomes your champion when they select to choose to send you to corporate for your final round. There is also a "ride along." The time spent with another rep. is intended to create a bond...don't be fooled however, this is done intentionally to find areas of weakness.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview

    I first applied through my college and university in the career center. Recruiter will schedule a phone interview within the week, and they asked general questions regarding your skills set, experience, moving capabilities, and salary expectations. Roughly two weeks later, I heard back and had a Skype interview with another sales representative.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Stryker in April 2013.

    Interview

    It was a long process which lasted about 4 months and it included 3 ride alongs with different reps, interviews with everyone on the team, hiring manager, regional manager, and the district manager. There was an interview that was dedicated to quizzing me on the products for the division I was interviewing for. It's a great company but the position just wasn't for me.

    Interview

    Let me begin by stating I was at US Cellular and Stryker was just beginning to realize that true talent came in many forms. I'm not sure what you would call mine but I've heard a good closer. Came natural since my Mom was overprotective. .

    Interview Questions

    • It is after the initial interview where they measure your passion and enthusiasm... Its called the SR1 test (basically ur 2nd interview) All you need to do is answer the q's the way you would if you were on your A game in a perfect world where the Alpha always won. I faked it but quickly became it when I started and if you have the ability to adapt you can to.... BTW- My sales manager was the best thing that happened to me in my LIFE. It is that awesome of a life experience... Thanks JG, Love you like a father. Peace   1 Answer
    • Listen.... life is short so don't over analyze a interview or you walk in looking like you just saw a ghost. We all had mothers who put us in time out or worse... its just 2 people talking. The more natural and honest you act coupled w/ passion and enthusiasm the better your chances.... peace.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate..... I was on a pay phone when I got the call driving to a OU/OSU game and fell down on the ice twice jumping up and down like I won the lottery.
