    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Stryker in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    They pretty much only hire through referrals or recruiters, so don't both applying online unless you have a very good resume with lots of medical sales experience. They are looking for the best of the best, so make sure to have sales performance available.

    Product Vigilance Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Selzach (Switzerland)
    Anonymous Employee in Selzach (Switzerland)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at Stryker in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Preliminary HR round to clarify come points on my CV followed by a Gallup telephone interview and ending with a face-to-face meeting with the team manager on location. The Gallup round *must* be cleared to be eligible for the final round. It was not hard, but at 90 minutes, was painfully long. the final round was very pleasant and at the end I was made to meet the rest of the team, which already gave me an indication that it had gone well. The time between application and the first HR interview was 8-9 weeks, which is ridiculously long considering that this was only an entry level position. The Gallup interview was a week after, and I was informed the very next day that I had made it to the final round. the final round was scheduled the following week.

    Interview Questions
    • The Gallup interview solely tests personality and has absolutely nothing to do with the technical profile of the role. Answers to some questions had to be justified with examples from professional or private life.   View Answer

    Some of the interview questions they asked me were so off the wall stupid that it made me not want to work for them! They did ask some situational questions that pertained to the position. What motivates you? How do you feel about working a commissioned position? What career accomplishment are you most proud of?
