Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Medtronic.

Interview

I was offered an interview, but didn't receive an offer. The interview was straightforward, all behavioral questions and questions about my resume. They wanted to see what I knew about the company. They also wanted to hear what was my favorite and least favorite class and why. Overall seemed like a relaxed interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was selected for an interview after a career fair at my university. The interview was scheduled for 30 minutes. He didn't ask too many tough questions, but he applied every question to the one experience I started off talking about and he never went outside of that experience, which I did not expect and wish that he had.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Northridge, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    First round was a phone screening with a guy I met at a university career fair. He asked me about some of the classes I was taking, and he asked me specific questions about statistics since I was in a statistics class. Then he asked me for a second round interview and a site tour. It was a 4-5 hour process. I met my interviewer for lunch, then he gave me a tour of the company, and that was followed by an interview with the manager and then a panel interview with the engineering team I would be working with. There were a lot of in-depth, technical questions about what I had done at my previous internship. It was a fairly difficult interview, and it was exhausting by the end of the day, but overall it seemed like they were pleased.

    Interview Questions

    • They showed me one of their diabetes devices and asked me to think of several things or reasons that could cause it to fail (thinking like an engineer).   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Medtronic in February 2013.

    Interview

    I met a Medtronic recruiter, an alumni, at my university career fair. I gave him my resume. He called me later that day to set up an on-campus interview for the next morning. It was a very standard interview. We ran through my resume and discussed my background. I was asked one behavioral question about my leadership experience. He asked if I had any questions. No real stumpers. The whole interview was rather light. He expressed a genuine interest in helping students from his alma mater. He told me I would hear back in 2-3 weeks. Had several other friends interview with Medtronic. No one heard back for about 2 months.
