Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Stryker in August 2013.
Interview Details – I applied on their website and received an email one week later to schedule a phone interview. 1st interview is with a recruiter for about 10-15 minutes. They asked me basic questions about myself and my resume. (Why do you want to work for Stryker, Why do you want to leave your current job, etc.) 2nd interview was about 30-45 minutes with the hiring manager. Make sure you know your resume well, a lot of the questions will be about your experience. 3rd interview was a 60 minute phone interview with Gallup. Stryker uses this company to better determine your personality. Be sure to study your answers for the general questions for this and have at least 3-4 work examples that back up your answers. Questions are fired off nonstop and ask for many examples. 4th interview is with 4-5 of your potential coworkers ranging from HR individuals to the top manager in that division to see if you are a good fit. Stryker puts a lot of effort in finding the right candidate and cares a lot about your future!
Interview Question – Are you a pushy person? Have you ever had someone champion your cause? Give an example. Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Stryker in March 2013.
Interview Details – Recruiter contacted me and told me to contact the DSM at a certain time the following day for a phone interview. I called the DSM, he didn't answer and I left a VM. DSM called me back and asked me why I would call him. Before I could state that the recruiter had told me to do so, he rudely interrupted and started the "phone interview". Through the entire process he rudely interrupted me every time I spoke, and had the audacity to ask me if my previous work experience was even in sales. I have numerous sales accolades and accomplishments. DSM was versed in disrespect.
Interview Question – "Was that even a sales position"? View Answer
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Stryker in March 2013.
Interview Details – Through an employee referral, my resume was given to HR who contacted me to set up an interview for an accounting internship. I had an interview with an accounting manager which went well, but as I didn't have an accounting background, I was not chosen for the particular position. The manager still highly recommended me for an internship in general, so my recruiter set me up for another interview with a different department. I had a phone interview and then an in-person interview, both of which had standard behavioral questions. Stryker is very much into the Gallup and being aware of your leadership style, so a lot of questions were geared toward my personal work ethic as well as my personality in general.
Interview Question – Nothing difficult Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Stryker in January 2014.
Interview Details – The process is pretty straightforward. I got in via employee referral but that did not ultimately earn me the position. My first step was a face to face interview with the hiring manager. My personal experience in this interview was a bit frustrating. The interviewee before me went over by about 10 minutes even though the manager told him then and there that he would not be moving forward. When it was time for my interview he seemed a bit aloof. He would ask me a question and then his eyes drifted towards the television screen behind me (we were in the lobby of a hotel). My guess is that he had already identified a candidate who he wanted to select prior to my interview and he was simply checking the box with our discussion. Our conversation ended abruptly and he went on to the next candidate.
Stryker interviews, usually start with a phone interview with a recruiter. Next is a face to face. Then a panel interview with the hiring manager, the rep under which you'd be working and possibly another manager. After that there's more face to face. Then a huge series of panel interviews in Kalamazoo.
Interview Question – What perplexes you? How much money in the bank would it take for you to leave your current position?

Very Difficult Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Stryker.
Interview Details – Lack of professionalism through the interview process was extremely disappointing. I don't recommend this company. I was in contact with the head of HR and others in the division along the way, then all of a sudden they just didn't respond to my emails. If you're not interested in my candidacy, fine. Be an adult and politely tell me no. I'll live. Don't act like you're in the coolest fraternity on the planet. It must be the only way they talk their employees into working stupid hours 24/7. This company can kick rocks and kiss my hairy balls.
Interview Question – Nothing. Just the fact that I had to meet with people back to back for an entire day. Answer Question
