Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Stryker in April 2014.

Interview Details – Interview process seemed very professional at the beginning:
1. Screening interview
2. HR screening interview
3. Gallup based interview
However, I never ever heard back from Stryker on my results of Gallup interview, even after contacting HR person who interviewed me.

Interview Question – Behavioral interview and give examples of situations. Gallup questions can be a bit weird, however basically what they are looking for a person who drives results, gets the job done and being assertive   Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview

Associate Sales Representative Interview

Associate Sales Representative

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Stryker in May 2014.

Interview Details – HR contacted me after applying for the position online. Very professional and quick to respond and schedule interviews. Don't be surprised if you're interviewing for a position outside of your city/state and they ask you to travel 2-3 times in order to interview with regional managers and reps, as this was requested of me 3 times.

If you nail the personality profile, you have a good shot at making it through the interview process, but that doesn't mean it's a cake walk. One interview with your potential regional manager, then a follow up with two regional managers, then a ride along with a rep. RM's are going to pick you apart and have no reservations with making you feel uncomfortable throughout the interview. They'll find a weak spot and beat it to death if you let them. I can't stress this enough...they want to know you won't crack under pressure and you're quick and confident in your responses. They'll throw a ton of questions at you with hardly enough time to respond. Know yourself, know what you want, and know you're the best candidate for the role.

This first interview was a typical "get to know you" interview. I was asked on the spot to go ahead with the second interview with Gallup company. These were personality questions. I was then called back about 2 weeks later saying they were moving on with other candidates.

Coordinator Interview

Coordinator
Mahwah, NJ

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Stryker in March 2014.

Interview Details – I had interned at Stryker and applied to a few full-time positions prior to my graduation date. I got an email within a week or two from HR asking when to schedule a phone interview for a particular position, and I responded promptly with dates and times. After this, I never received a response. I politely followed up twice over the course of two weeks, until I finally got a rejection letter with never having interviewed. It was very strange and unprofessional. I can actually see that now, two months later, the position has not been filled, so I am assuming someone at Stryker did not want me to work there based on my internship. This is fine, but it is still not right that HR would contact me in the first place, then never gave me the time of day.
