    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Medtronic in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter kept excellent communication throughout the process as well as the hiring manager. Accommodations to and from the interview were made easily and well in advance. The interview consisted of a difficult, but diverse group of different individuals among the company who all maintained a level of respect. All questions were asked appropriately and interviews lasted approximately 45 minutes each.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview Details

    Overall, a very straightforward process consisting of an online assessment test, personality assessment test, phone interview, and two face-to-face interviews. The interviewers were very pleasant and didn't try to trick you or make you uncomfortable. The final interview consisted of a sit-down with the Sales Manager and Clinical Manager, both of which were professional, knowledgebale, and personable.

    Principal Internal Communications Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Rosa, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Rosa, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Marketing Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Rosa, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Rosa, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.
