    Applied through the company website but was contacted by a recruiter. About a thirty minute phone interview with hiring manager.

    Diagnostics Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oxnard, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Oxnard, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Medtronic in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter from Medtronic called me and said my qualifications were great and wanted to set up an immediate interview the following week. Without any further information, I accepted.... afterall, I thought, this is MEDTRONIC. The hiring manager and recruiter both knew that I lived about 3 hours from the interview location. I showed up, went through the ENTIRE interview, only to find out at the end of the interview that this position was for a 30k base, 75k at plan. Please note, my resume clearly states my qualifications to FAR exceed this type of position. In fact, I have not been recruited for any position, for less than a 100k base, 200k at plan position in years. Upon the onset of the interview, I advised the hiring manager of my income expectations. At this point, any ethical (or common sense) manager would have informed me that I was over qualified. Instead, he tried to "sell" me on the product and how "real" sales reps are the ones that accept low bases and "work hard" for high paying commissions. No matter how you slice it, 75k is entry level. A 30k base, is for kids out of college! I wasted 6 hours of my life that I will never get back. This has, however, taught me a valuable lesson..... Dear Medtronic, you are completely delusional if you truly believe that "real" sales people are those that live on 30k base, and scrounge for commissions. The fact that you clearly hide the income expectations from the start, shows how unethical and cowardly you are. CAR SALESMAN make this type of income. I write this review.... as I feel it is my duty to warn all those who are naive about Medtronic as I once was. Run away! Any medical company that would pay a 30k base to a medical sales rep is one that does not respect their team. Once I was advised of the earning potential, I quickly ended the interview so that I could make the 3 hour trek home. Thanks Medtronic!

    Met 6 managers, and then 6 more. Round robin canned questions.Some minimal follow up, but mainly high level managerial questions to feel you out. Everyone was very polite, looking to see how you respond to conflict with people you are managing.

    Senior Director, R&D Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Medtronic in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Odd step for doing a working test session as a mock senior leader in sales. It didn't bother me and I did well, but it was not tailored for the position -- sort of an example of odd policy decisions in hiring. Lots of meddling from very senior division leadership.

    Reimbursement Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tolochenaz (Switzerland)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tolochenaz (Switzerland)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview Details

    Medtronic contacted me through my linkedIn profile and proposed me a job offer for reimbursement analyst positIon. I declined the first offer as it was not of my interest. Subsequently, Medtronic HR reached out to me and offered me two other positions insisting that I was a good match for their company. After 6 months (interviews and negotiations) Medtronic convinced me with their final offer and even offered me a hiring bonus as an incentive. Some interviews with key managers were canceled at the last minute which I did not appreciate. I did accept the offer which both parties signed. Thus, I did resign from my current job to join Medtronic after 3 months notice (everything was going fine at my current job as I was promoted recently) . But the worst is to come!!!!!! Medtronic HR called me 20 days before the contract start date to tell me that my position was withdrew and that they cancel the signed contract. I was very mad and that was very surprising especially that they know I resigned from my former job to join them and that they insisted soooo much to hire me. Moreove both parties signed the contract more than 2 months ago. I am very very very disappointed by the last minute cancelation with no valid reasons behind. Now, I am jobless thanks to abusive decision made at the last minute by management with no consideration and no respect. It may have a very negative impact on my career. I would definitely NOT RECOMMEND this company to anyone. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!!! DO NOT RUIN YOUR CAREER!!!! TRUST me you will certainly find more respectful employers.
