I applied online. I interviewed at Stryker.
Recruiter will schedule a phone interview within the week, general questions (skills, experience, salary expectations, etc.).

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Stryker.
I first applied through my college and university in the career center. Recruiter will schedule a phone interview within the week, and they asked general questions regarding your skills set, experience, moving capabilities, and salary expectations. Roughly two weeks later, I heard back and had a Skype interview with another sales representative.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Stryker (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2015.

I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Stryker (Baltimore, MD) in April 2015.
Phone screen, one on one, video presentation/sales pitch, Gallup personality phone interview... Phone screen was set up with similar questions as Gallup. One on one went awesome, video was challenging but awesome... The Gallup personality test was the most challenging. Hard to be yourself and answer without trying to "fit their mold." Overall, great company and was upset to have to go! They have reached out for a different position to get my foot in the door. Looking forward to the future and hoping I'll find my place at Stryker!

I applied online. I interviewed at Stryker (Fremont, CA) in April 2015.
At first, a screening with a HR staff was taken place over the phone. She asked me several questions regarding to what I have been doing at my current employer. The scheduling did not take more than 3 days but the actual screening took place a few months later.

Very long but very worth it, still in the process. I have final phone screens then they will send out an offer. The process has been a fantastic learning experience!

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Stryker in March 2015.
Was emailed about a phone interview and then we scheduled it. Once they called a few days later I was on the phone with someone from HR and they started off asking the usual behavioral questions. A little after that I was asked a quick series of yes or no questions and that was pretty much it.
- On a scale of 1-10, how organized are you? Describe how you are that organized. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker (Albuquerque, NM) in March 2015.
A lot of phone interviews. An initial with the HR recruiter the if they like what they hear you go through the gallup. If your personality aligns with the role you interview with your potential regional manager. If that person approves then you will speak to two more of his or her colleagues. I personally didn't make it past the RM's peers but should you, next step is a ride along. overall pretty standard questions just have plenty of examples ready to go. Just make sure you don't put all your eggs in this basket because it takes weeks and there is no guarantee, even as far as I managed to make it.
- What decisions are hardest for you to make? Answer Question
Helpful (3)No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker in March 2015.
Applied online and set up a phone interview. Due to the recruiter being out of town and having to catch up on e-mails it took 2 weeks just to set up a time to talk. The whole phone interview was about 30 minutes and more a personality quiz than an interview. I was never asked any specifics about my current job and the questions were very awkward. By the end of it I just wanted to hang up.
- Describe what makes the patients at your current job champions.... (WTF?) Describe an instance when you were a winner. If winning isn't everything then what is it?.... (Again, WTF?) Answer Question
