Tough but fair. Technical interview followed by "fluff" from Sr. Management. Multiple questions about WPF/MVVM. Write a small program demonstrating MVVM. Go through a small program with bugs and fix bugs.

The worst interview process ever. And the recruiter did not know what she was doing. Haphazard. Pathetically structured and long writing test. I wouldn't work for this company, and I would no longer consider their procedure for my back issues as a result.
- typical experience questions. 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at NuVasive (San Diego, CA) in June 2015.
Interview experience was good, people were very nice. Spoke with HR, basic questions, then had a technical interview where he asked me about my SolidWorks experience and what tools I knew how to utilize. It was about a 30 minute interview and he also asked some behavioral questions such as: what my weaknesses are and my best quality. However, they decided to pursue other candidates.

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at NuVasive (San Diego, CA) in April 2015.
I applied to Nuvasive in early March, and was contacted about two weeks later for a phone interview. I was then invited to an in-person interview about a week after the phone interview. During this interview I met with a hiring manager for a little more than an hour, who I thought was really nice and easy going. I received another email about a week later that said I had been selected to come back for a follow-up interview, but, that they didn't know when they were going to schedule it. Almost a month went by, and I interviewed again in early May. This interview was with a panel of three managers from different departments, with each interview taking 45 minutes. Over a week later they sent me an email claiming that they had moved forward with a candidate who worked with the team a few years back, so they had a bit more direct experience than me. I felt somewhat let down by Nuvasive for two reasons. I really felt that with the time and energy I spent interviewing with them, that they could have at least called me and told me why I didn't get the job rather then just send me an email. An email is a very impersonal way to deal with someone. Secondly, I feel I never had a chance to get the job, as they probably had always planned on going with this other candidate from the beginning. Why did they even interview other people and get their hopes up? Although I really liked Nuvasive and really wanted to work there I feel that their interviewing process has needs for improvement.

Interview process is great. They really take the time to get to know you to make sure you will be the right fit. The process took about 4-5 weeks, and it was very efficient from the first interaction with the Recruiter. This was easily one of the best experiences I have ever had!!
- The questions were all fair, and they really want to know how your experience/background can help the company continue to move forward. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at NuVasive.
They had 2 days (9am - 2, 3 pm) full of interviews with various people from the teams you will interact with. These people mostly asked about your experiences and projects you have worked on. Nuvasive relies on its engineers to be outside-the-box, design driven engineers so emphasizing your robust imagination and creative thinking will go further than saying you know how to GD&T something perfectly. There were very few technical questions and the technical questions were rapid fire verbal questions intended to make sure you understand the basic engineering concepts of engineering backwards and forwards.
- Basic beam loading overviews, questions regarding past projects, your roles as an engineer/student, how you would approach certain engineering problems Answer Question

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NuVasive (San Diego, CA).
The whole process was very quick as they needed someone fill the position immediately. HR first contacted me and scheduled a phone interview with the manager the next day. After the phone interview, the manager seemed very interested and wanted to meet with me along with another associate. I met with them 2 days later and the face-to-face went well. They contacted me the next day and asked if I could start the following week.
- I did not find anything difficult in the questions. The questions were based on my knowledge and experience. Answer Question

I never made it to the interview process!! HR contacted me to talk and then took 3 weeks to get back to me. Then they changed the position to a part time assistant to the EAs!!
