    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stryker (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me to set-up a phone interview. I was asked what times would be best for the call. I responded via email immediately. I didn't hear back from the recruiter for 4-5 days but we decided on a time. 20 minutes before the phone call I get an email stating that they have gone with another candidate

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview

    Several phone interviews by the recruiter and manager, followed by the Gallup personality quiz. This personality quiz is unconventional but I really liked it. There isn't really a way to prepare and it is best to just answer honestly - this type of blind audition works to see both if you are a good fit for Stryker and vice versa. This is a particularly good practice for a company with so many type A, driven people, as Stryker most definitely is.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was recently contacted via email for a phone interview for a Stryker Procare position. We both set up a date and time easily, and I was ready and waiting. The time from when I applied til the time I was actually interviewed was less than a month. The woman who called me on my interview day was really straight to the point, jumped into the interview process after a quick "hello how are you doing today?" The questions were not difficult so long as you took the time to research the position, the responsibilities, and why you thought you would be a good match for the position. After about 30 minutes we both decided that this entry level job was not something I was looking for. In terms of technical ability and education, I meet and exceeded the requirements, however the salary was not something I was interested in, nor was it negotiable. But the woman was straight to the point and didnt waste my time beating around the bush on that topic, which I appreciate. Overall, she was very professional, gave me the feedback I asked for, and possible opportunities I should keep an eye out for that would better suit my needs skillwise and financially.

    Service Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Stryker (Kansas City, MO) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Started initially with a phone interview. Then I met the area manager in the Lobby of a local hotel. She didn't have much to say, other than she was cramming a lot of interviews in a short time frame. Disappointing. Very informal.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview

    There were no interview at all. They reply to my application with: While we appreciate your interest in Stryker Corporation, we have other applicants who have a background and experiences that more closely fit our needs for this particular position. Again, we certainly do appreciate your interest in Stryker and a potential career with our organization. Very polite, but I can assure that my background and experience were more than enough for the position, but as I have no work experience in the US, that makes my background insufficient. On the same day I receive this answer, I apply for an internship in this company, which is way under my proficiency, only to receive the same answer a couple of days later. I understand this is a normal approach in several companies in US, but it is undeniable that "equal opportunities" are big words that should be used with caution by these companies.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview

    It was very simple. Just the normal behavioral questions. First, I had a phone interview, then an in-person one at their headquarters. This one was more technical. Thwe questions were pretty straightforward. The most important thing is to be very confident. Especially on the phone interview. Be confident, be prepared and review glassdoor before hand. Don't be too cocky though. It reflects overconfidence as well.

    Engineer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview

    The interview was about a half hour long of extremely difficult questions. The interviewer seemed completely uninterested and was not friendly at all. Although I was not offered a position, the interviewer definitely did not seem like someone I would want to work with or for every day. This entire experience made me remember why I never bothered with Stryker before. They are looking for specific personality types and quickly write off anyone who does not meet that Type A criteria. My advice is to just be yourself because if they don't hire you, chances are it's not a place you would like to work anyways.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Stryker (Mahwah, NJ).

    Interview

    It took over 6 months to get the job at Stryker. The HR Department is so SLOW - then you go onsite for an interview - wait a month go back again wait a month - it took FOREVER!!!! Then one day I went and had to interview with 5 people - one at a time in a small conference room - HORRIBLE. That's just for a coordinator job - not cool

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation - they don't tell you what they are offering until you go thru the whole interview process - they said what they were offering - take it or leave it.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly in depth. It starts with a basic phone call with HR, followed by an in depth personality screen through the Gallup organization. If all goes well, an onsite interview with several cross-functional team members rounds out the process.

    Quality Assurance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kalamazoo, MI

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker (Kalamazoo, MI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, got an email for a phone screen with a HR rep that same day. That interview lasted ~20 minutes where we talked about my interest in Stryker and past experiences. At the end I was told I was moving on to a 2nd phone interview with two technical hiring managers for the position. The next step was the Gallup interview that took about 45 minutes, lots of questions to determine if you are a natural leader, proactive, type A+ person (lots of 'tell me about a time you did this' questions too). I was then invited to the site for an afternoon of interviews with 9 different employees in the division. Every interviewer had questions, some more than others. In the end it came down to me and one other person who they felt had a more sufficient technical background for the position but overall the experience was a positive one. Everyone was very professional and prompt throughout the process.
