Project Coordinator Interview

Project Coordinator
Minneapolis, MN

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Medtronic in April 2009.

Interview Details – Medtronic has a very well-organized HR process which makes it difficult to get to the hiring manager unless the generalist believes you're worthy.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary. Plus/preferred skills are actually more of a "must have."   Answer Question

Talent Acquisition Interview

Talent Acquisition

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Medtronic in October 2013.

Interview Details – Nice place, but I interviewed with the person who I'd be replacing and I was quite disappointed with two things: her totally disheveled appearance and the fact that she was on her mobile phone sending text messages half the time I was interviewing. Lastly, received no response.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Medtronic in September 2013.

Interview Details – Recruited for the position by an agency. Submitted resume, salary requirements, and answered some interview questions with the agency. Phone interviewed with 5 Medtronic managers for ~3 hours, 2 different days. I appreciated the opportunity to speak with the person leaving the position I'd be filling.

Principal Internal Communications Specialist Interview

Principal Internal Communications Specialist
Santa Rosa, CA

I applied online and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Medtronic in September 2013.

Interview Details – I was first contacted by a recruiter through email and asked to fill out a detailed questionnaire. A few days later, we had a phone interview. I proceeded to have two more phone interviews--one with a department executive in Minneapolis; the other with the hiring manager in Santa Rosa. I was then invited for on-site interviews. I met with five people that day. I have to say that even though I didn't end up getting the job, the entire process was handled very professionally and respectfully. I will continue to keep an eye on Medtronic's job site.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you were able to make a process more efficient.   Answer Question
