    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Quality Control Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Medtronic (Atlanta, GA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Primary HR interview by phone went well. Secondary phone interview with Quality Management was a bit harsh and nailed me with skills I didn't have much like a military drill instructor. I couldn't hear the interviewer due to talking in the background and speaker phone. Would have been better for p2p interview.

    Phone interview with basic personality and fit questions. Was invited to come in for an in person interview.

    Pretty fast. Its overall a sales job. Sell yourself and know how to overcome an objection. Interviewers will ask why you should be hired over other people

    FIRST WILL be an interview with recruiter
    then you get a phone call interview with a manager or supervisor
    last you have a face to face interview with two supervisors or manager and supervisor
    then you get a call form recruiter, congrats you got an offer now go pee in a cup

    Average Interview

    Interview

    The recruiter came to my campus, and interviewed several students. The employer gave a nice overview of the company before asking me questions. The questions were mainly behavioral, but there were a few technical ones. It really felt like a conversation. Interview went well, but I have not heard back from the recruiters.

    Interview

    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.
