The process took 4 days - interviewed at Medtronic in July 2012.
Interview Details – Original interview consisted of doing one set of interviews with 4 managers from the sales division in the company, then the next day was round two with 3 Sales reps from the company. The follow up consisted of flying out to Memphis with dinner and another set of interviews the next day with 4 more managers.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Medtronic in June 2012.
Interview Details – Phone interview was very professional. Facilitator was very open in communicating the difficulties of the job and reasoning for this position being vacant.
Negotiation Details – Tuff. Seemed as if company wasn't willing to pay for the education and abilities that would be provided. They had a low set price, and if you didn't feel it was sufficient, with today's market, they had plenty of willing fish in the barrel that would accept.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Medtronic in May 2012.
Interview Details – Candidates were scheduled back-to-back. A list of 10 behavioral questions were asked. The interviewers wrote down my replies. They did not ask any questions about my experience or skills nor did they comment on my answers. I was allowed to ask questions at the end of the interview. But the interviewer spoke very quickly and kept announcing how many minutes remained until the end. Weird interview!

Interview Question – Why should I give you this job? View Answer
The process took a day - interviewed at Medtronic in April 2012.
Interview Details – I was first contacted by a recruiter over the phone. She didn't mention that she was conducting a phone interview, but that's what it was. I was contacted about a week later for an interview with the hiring/engineering managers. I went to the Tempe location where I was met by the main engineering manager. We went into a conference room and he was joined by another two upper level engineers. The interview was a mixture between behavioral and technical. No "what would you do if..." questions, but questions like "where do you see yourself in 5 years", "why medtronic", etc. They grilled me about my past internships and work experience, wanting to know every detail of what I did. They were very friendly, but to the point and somewhat intimidating. After the interview, I was given a half-hour tour of the campus and where I would "potentially" be working. I was offered the position a few days later by one of the hiring managers.
Negotiation Details – No negotiations for interns. Take the offer, it's above industry standard pay by about 20% of the average.
