Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Stryker (San Jose, CA) in March 2011.

Interview

HR and Hiring manager were very professional and pleasant on the first two phone interviews. Hiring manager interview was mainly around my background and experience and going through work listed in my resume. HR was very behavioral interview, I felt that they were trying to get a feel of what type of a person I am. After that I was referred to a Gallup interview, 2 hours of personality questions, but it went by pretty fast. Then I was invited for an onsite interview. I met with a total of 14 people, they try to have as many people as possible see you to be able to give their feedback. Overall an excellent experience, and they move pretty fast too!!

Negotiation

Very limited room for negotiation !!

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Stryker (Kalamazoo, MI) in February 2011.

    Interview

    So far my impression of Stryker is wonderful. I have been contacted by 3 HR personnel; each has been positive, punctual, and clear in next steps. I began with an initial phone interview (15 minutes long), an interview with hiring manager (25 minutes long), and then a Gallup personality profile (45 minutes long). This is the point at which I am in the process. I hope they will have me on site to interview. I would love to see the facilities and learn more about the company culture!

    Interview

    Thank you all who posted their questions. It really helped me as I could write down the answers before hand. They asked almost the same questions. I had my telephonic interview on April 22,2010. 1. Why do you want to work for Stryker? 2. What do you do in your spare time? 3. Do you like to stick to your plan or follow others? 4. Is it important for you to be liked by your co-workers? 5. How do you juggle with multiple projects? 6. Do your friends consider you to be a good friend? 7. Did you acquire solid knowledge in anything for which your friends often come to you? 8. On a scale from 1-10, how persuasive are you? 9. Do you prefer to be very perfect only in one area or you want to be good in all areas? I guess thats all..not sure if I missed anything. It was a complete behavioral interview as informed before. Interview lasted for about 20 minutes. I feel it went well. Hope I get to the next round Cheers, Bharath

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Stryker (Kalamazoo, MI) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Very straightforward, a hiring manager or a recruiter from HR called first, for screening after I applied online. After that gallup called and conducted a one hour phone interview where they asked specific questions pertaining to personality. Then it was a round of 2 on site technical interviews and was offered the position afterwards by HR.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Stryker (San Jose, CA) in March 2007.

    Interview

    Interview was very direct. Some interviewers ask silly/off the wall type questions that don't make sense to try and see what you do when you get thrown off-balance. It is a lot easier to get through the interview process if you participate in sports or play with cars, especially if you are interviewing for an engineering position.
