    Labview Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fridley, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fridley, MN
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I found the job posting on the Medtronic website and submitted an online job application with an employee referral. Within a week of submitting my application I received a call scheduling an onsite interview. Before my interview I also received an email with a survey for me to fill out. The survey had detailed questions about how my experience related to the job. My onsite interview was with 5 different individuals. Each interviewer had a worksheet of questions they asked and filled out as I responded. They also asked questions not on their worksheet. Overall the interview experience was quite pleasant. I was told I would hear back in a week and I did, but just that they were still interviewing other candidates. I kept following up and 2 months later I heard that they decided to go with someone else.

    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume for a position and was contacted the next day by a recruiter. The recruiter didn't know all of the information about the position, and in fact gave me incorrect information.

    A couple weeks later I did a phone interview with the hiring manager.

    A couple weeks later I did an in person interview with 4 people, including the hiring manager. They use the STAR (situation, task, activity, result) approach to interviewing. They assign each interviewer a section to focus on like "leadership", and they ask you to "explain a time when...", then you need to give the action that you did, and describe the results. If you want to be sure you do well at this, make sure you google the STAR approach ahead of time to understand what they are looking for.

    I was offered the position without any signing bonus, without any additional weeks of vacation (3 weeks to start).

    The position was a lateral move and the base pay was as much as I was making.

    Senior Marketing Communication Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Rosa, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Rosa, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone interview with the HR Hiring Manager for screening purposes. Following phone interview, I had an in-person interview. Depending on the business unit, plan on meeting with several key individuals. My interview was about 6 hours long. I met with 5 individuals and had lunch with the prospective team I would support. Keep in mind, Medtronic is used to working with the top physicians in their respective fields and professionalism is key. Dress appropriately, bring samples of your work if you have them and don't be afraid to take a second to gather your thoughts before answering a question. If you are not local to the campus, be prepared for the option of a phone and/or live video interview(s) and know how to put your best self forward in this case.
