Moundsview, MN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Medtronic in January 2011.

Interview Details – Phone interview first, followed by 1/2 day session with 4 different employees of similar position being applied for.

Marketing Director Interview

Marketing Director
Santa Rosa, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Medtronic.

Interview Details – I had multiple conversations with Human Resources. Very pleasant, professional and supportive. Speaking with the business unit professionals was completely the opposite. After spending almost 4 consecutive hours with 6 different people, it was a complete waste of time with people that think only they know anything.

Interview Question – Would this be a challenging enough role for you?   View Answer

MDR Specialist Interview

MDR Specialist
Fridley, MN

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Medtronic in October 2012.

Interview Details – It was like an assembly line. They had four rooms with interviewers and a waiting room with 40 people to be interviewed. A lot of generic questions and you have to go the extra mile to get their interest as they have most likely interviewed 4-5 people right before you.

Interview Question – Describe a situation where you failed and how you dealt with that?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate. I had no experience and no leverage in the situation.
