Technical Services Specialist Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at St. Jude Medical.
Interview Details – I received an initial phone interview by the Regional Director, another phone interview with his manager, followed by a group interview with two directors. I was open to relocation, so I requested field visits in locations where they are hiring. This gave me a valuable opportunity to visit 3-4 teams, to observe their duties, culture, and work environments.
Interview Question – How do you add value in your role? I was also asked technical questions on cardiac rhythm management. Answer Question
Clinical Research Associate II Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and interviewed at St. Jude Medical.
Interview Details – Total of 3 interviews; 1st phone interview with HR recruiter, 2nd phone interview with managers (30 minutes each) and 3rd in-person with several managers and directors. Total time from initial application to final interview took almost two months. HR recruiter communicated sufficiently throughout that timeline. Changes in hiring needs led to a delay after interview to job offer, but recruiter kept in touch.
Interview Question – Questions were not difficult but were pretty detailed. I was asked about the research development process and how I handled difficult situations. The only unexpected question asked about how I have improved a process in my current position. I was able to answer but should have prepared for that type of question. Answer Question

Manufacturing Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
Interviewed at St. Jude Medical
Interview Details – Spent all day at the site interviewing with all types of people- from other MEs to Directors to VP. Some of the interviewers were just seat fillers and asked silly questions just to show their own skills off. Other interviewers were genuinely asking about my ability to contribute. For sure review general Engineering concepts (validations, verifications, Gage R&R, statistics, etc.).
Interview Question – What did you dislike most about your last job View Answer
R&D Technician Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at St. Jude Medical.
Interview Details – The interview was meticulously scheduled, and I met with six different people in 4 interviews (all in a two hour span). I thought that the interview went well, all the interviewers were nice and easy to talk to. The atmosphere of the company seems like they are recoiling from previous problems with upper level management restructuring.
Interview Question – There were no technical questions in this interview, other than to ask what type of lab equipment I had worked with in the past. Most questions were behavioral in nature. Answer Question
