Very Difficult Interview
Sales Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Stryker.
Interview Details – The gallup profile can be difficult; off the wall type questions; need a lot of examples of how you have performed in the past; this is where they check your moral compass
Interview Question – tell me about a time you had to break through a bottlenect Answer Question
Negotiation Details – commission only-quota based on previous results in territory
Senior Financial Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
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 (Positive Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
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.
Human Resources Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Stryker.
Interview Details – I reached out to the HR person in the Flower Mound location and got an immediate response wanting to set up an initial interview. 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.
Interview Question – typical questions Answer Question
Marketing Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Stryker in June 2014.
Interview Details – I applied back in March and didn't hear back from anyone until June. Phone interview first was scheduled. Hoping to move on to the next step. I know the Gallop test follows the phone interview, which company uses to direct your career path in the future.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself within our company? Answer Question
Associate Sales Representative Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)

Interview Details – Typical Stryker interview process.
2 phone screens, gallop test followed by 3 in person interviews.
I did not have a field ride along, but often candidates have to spend a day in the field.
Interview Question – All questions were gallop based performance/goal attaining questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiations. Base salary ples a small commission.
Recruiter Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Stryker.
Interview Details – A few emails. One in house interview. Interviewer ask allot of questions and got allot of useful information from me. Never heard back from the company, not even a decline. Bad reflection of HR and entire recruiting process.

Account Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Stryker.
Interview Details – straight forward. High expectations of applicants They appear to want athletic over confident young energetic people. Must be cocky confident and borderline narcissistic to pass gallop poll test. Seems like a good place to work but high stress
Coordinator Interview (Negative Experience)
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.

There is always that general sense of security and belief that the ship is heading in the right direction, so people don't question much and focus on getting their jobs done. It is a large growing global corporation so with that you will get good benefits, profit sharing, growth potential, development/training, and the opportunity to travel/relocate domestically and internationally. The turnover rate is extreme so opportunities always open up and the company encourages internal mobility. The hiring process is known to be very long and complicated and it has created a lot of hype. So just having the name on your resume gives you an advantage for the rest of your career. Making it a very good entry level company.” – Full Review
