    Interview

    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.

    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!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Medtronic (Memphis, TN) in December 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Medtronic (Memphis, TN) in July 2010.

    Interview

    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.
