ArthroCare Senior Product Development Engineer Interview Questions & Reviews

Senior Product Development Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ArthroCare.
Interview Details – One phone interview, multiple onsite interviews. This position had been open on and off for over a year. There have been many recruiters hunting to fill the position, and despite myself and several qualified engineers interviewing, the position continues to be unfilled (after 1.5 years). I think they are looking more for a specific cultural fit and will train this magical person the appropriate engineering skills, rather than hiring a competent engineer who may not fit into their unique culture. Good luck with that.
Interview Question – Was asked very pointed questions by one of the directors, questions like "what does everyone else do better than you". And then "give me a specific example of when you failed". There were about 6 of these aggressive put-you-on-the-spot type of questions. Better have good answers! Answer Question
