    Interview Details

    It will tiring process as there were back to back interviews and even lunch was rough and was inhouse while interviewing with 2 people. People were kind except for some tough personalities. Most interview was around plant/supplier quality. Was not easy to gauge whether an offer would be made.

    Interview Questions
    • Heavily supplier based-Describe supplier quality process, how to check quality control of supplier, did any supplier audits, how to read drawings with tolerance focus, used any statistical tools, worked with precision machines and checking for FAI, non- conformances, welding inspections, DFMEA- which no out of severity, occurrence, detection can be lowered   Answer Question
    • Lots of situational question- conflict with boss, how to deal with tough people, how to handle tough discussion in team

      Mostly looking for STAR method answers.

    Program Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview Details

    The worst interview process ever -
    I applied online in June 2014. Got my 1st response in July - a long interview questionnaire. Then they scheduled a call with the hiring manager (initial screen) in late July followed quickly by another phone interview with hiring manager's direct report. Never heard anything for a few weeks. Then it was second round of interviews in August with the same folks (over the phone). Then I was asked to take an online assessment (personality and skills). I was later told by the hiring manager that I was an almost perfect match to their ideal candidate. Then they decided to call me in for in-person interviews. They flew me in and I met with 7 mid level managers all day. They all seemed to like me and even said I should let them know if I decide to go with another company.
    A week later they scheduled 3 more phone interviews. By now I have completed 2 written assessments, interviewed 5 times over the phone and met with 7 people.

    I had emailed them 2 times since the last interview asking for an update. No responses (5 weeks later). I wish the HR department had the courtesy to let a candidate know of their decision after dragging around an interview process that was over 90 days with multiple phone calls (mid day during work hours) and in person.

    Difference between a good and great companies are based on not only how they treat their employees but also how they treat their vendors, customers and interview candidates.

    Quality Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview Details

    Had 30 minutes phone interview with the hiring manager and then was invited for an in person interview at Medtronic. Interview consisted of four, 30-minute 1:1 interviews with other engineers and co-workers focused on different aspects of the job (technical, working with others, problem solving). I then had another 30 minute interview with the hiring manager and we had long. The process was very straight forward and what I expected: pre-written questions from HR, they want you to answer in the traditional STAR format. Overall it was a really great experience and gave me a great idea of the people I would be working with and what my experience would be like.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview Details

    I had one phone interview and an on site. The process was long. On site interview was hard, met with a lot of people, a lot of technical questions. They like talking about polymer degradation issue in their applications, seem to doubt that I'm not ready to transition from the academia.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked a lot of general polymer questions (the position was in the materials group). Nothing too difficult but you have to be prepared.   Answer Question
