Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Covidien (Irvine, CA) in March 2015.

Interview

I got a call from HR to set up an interview with the manager of the department. I did the phone interview with the manager a couple days later lasting about 30 minutes. I got a call from HR the next day to set up an on-site interview for during my spring break. At the on-site interview, I met with three senior managers that I would be working with. They were super nice and seemed like they liked me. It was a really laid back interview and really comfortable. It was mostly going over my resume, not a lot of technical questions. There were a couple behavioral questions, but mostly just asking about my experience.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Covidien.

    Interview

    Career Fair style - you go around and talk to different departments. Make sure you dress professionally, have questions prepared, and don't wait in all of the really long lines! Find the shorter lines and hit them first. They didn't ask any really tough questions, so just relax and be yourself. They basically just want to get to know you and see if you would be a good fit.

    Their interview process is very simple and easy. The process consisted of a phone interview with HR, then another interview with manager and finally an interview with three team members. Basically they just went over my resume and asked questions about that. Also asked a few behavioral-based questions that were easy to answer.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Covidien in April 2012.

    Interview

    Received two phone interviews from HR and the team manager. Some typical behavioral questions were asked. Some technical questions were about sigma-six, which I didn't have any idea about. Then he asked me about some basic ideas of two-sample test and ANOVA, as well as the meaning of p-value and type I error. The interviewer was very nice but I was too nervous to get into the on-site interview.
