- Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Memphis, TN) in August 2015.
Long interview process. I interviewed with at least 7 people for an hour each. Intense questions about diversity and inclusion. Very nice people but the day was long. Questions required answers with examples and solutions. Very thought provoking. Must have many examples ready for the interview. Think about previous projects and results.

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Medtronic (Memphis, TN).
The interview process wa little over an hour lateras fairly easy. I received a call from Human Resources. They asked me a few questions and she informed me of the process. She let me know she was screening applicants and that a second telephone interview would take place the next day with a department manager. She told me the questions I would be asked were going to be behavioral question. Well about a little over an hour later, I received a phone call from the department manager but unfortunately I had left to take my baby to the doctor. I returned the call the next day because it was too late to call when I returned. I called and I didn't get an answer and left a voicemail. My call was returned about 20 minutes later. I was told they were still screening applicants and she began to ask me questions. I was expecting behavioral questions based off of what was told by HR but the only questions that was asked were things that was found on my resume. She talked to me for about 5 minutes. It appeared to me that she had already made her decision before she called me because I really didn't stand a chance. After the phone call, less than an hour later I received a rejection email. I only wanted a fair shot at the job opportunity and I don't feel like I received that.
- You've received your Bachelor's Degree, right? When. I gave my answer and she said oh yeah I see that on your resume. What school did you attend? What was your GPA? You're going to school for your Master's too... What school? When are you expected to graduate? No behavioral questions as I expected. My second interviewer asked the same questions as the HR representative. 1 Answer

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Medtronic (Memphis, TN) in September 2012.
After initially meeting at a career conference and doing two interviews at that location, I was contacted several times via phone and e-mail in order to continue the interview process. I was eventually invited to Memphis as a finalist for the position. There were 8 candidates total during the final round.
- The most unexpected part was the fact that there were two separate 45 minute interviews that consisted of "3 on 2" meaning 3 interviewers and 2 candidates Answer Question

The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Memphis, TN) in June 2012.
Behavioral interview with panel consisting of Engineering Manager, Operations Manager and HR Manager. Overall good atmosphere very laid back interview style. Each member of panel asked one question from pre-determined list about company values. Also answered pre-screened questionnaire from HR. Timely feedback from HR when not selected for position. Overall pleasant experience although not offered position.

The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Medtronic (Memphis, TN) in June 2012.
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. The most unique thing is they will interview two candidates at the same time.
- Why Sales? What makes you more qualified than the candidate next to you? Who is the CEO? Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Memphis, TN) in May 2012.
Interview process was 2 phone screens, 1 interview with hiring manager, and then a panel interview of Sr. Management
- They expected me to have answers to some of their issues in the interview. I was able to successfully provide them with some opportunities for improvement. Answer Question
Negotiation was easier than I thought and I got what I wanted! Just be firm and reiterate what you bring to the table and that you are not accepting any less. I have turned down positions because of this and I am glad I did!
- No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Medtronic (Memphis, TN) in December 2011.
Interviewer was a Product Engineer; he did not seem excited to be there. Unemotionally, he went through the required packet of questions for HR until we could have a "normal conversation." Questions were mostly about my experiences in engineering and team work. The interview had an hour time slot but only took 30 minutes. Nothing out of the normal was asked.

There was no negotiation. All customer service reps come in at the same flat rate.

I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Memphis, TN) in February 2011.
Interview process is smooth and well thought of. Questions seem to be all planned ahead. There seems to be a good base for selecting candidates and comparison of the candidates is done fairly. Usually the interview is done by many people and lasts pretty much for the whole day, depending on the position and manager.

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Memphis, TN) in July 2010.
The interview consisted of an HR manager setting me up for a phone conversation with a Engineer Manager that I would be working under. The interview was fairly unorthodox, because I felt that the interviewer had little experience interviewing people. Instead of simply asking me questions, he proceeded to make comments, pause, and then just expect me to begin talking. It definitely threw me off my game, but it was good practice. I would not blame this on Medtronic itself, however, they are a strong company and an excellent company to work for.
