    Production Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone call from a Stryker hiring manager which lasted about 40 minutes. The process was a bit unique for me because I was connected by a recruiter because of my military background. I felt it was more a discussion than a Q and A session, but I guess each company has their own methods. After the discussion I learned that it went well, but I was a better fit for another position. This was a little disheartening since I then had to go through the phone interview with another hiring manager, and I am still waiting on those results.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really unexpected, a lot of questions that asked about my military experience and how it might apply to their company. My advise would be to have a few vignettes ready which emphasize your managerial capabilities. These will undoubtedly come up at the actual interview anyway.   Answer Question

    Medical Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Memphis, TN
    Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN
    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Stryker in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was referred by a local physician and customer of Stryker. Initial phone discussion was with local sales rep covering the accounts. Face to face interview was scheduled for a Friday afternoon at 4:30 at the Peabody hotel in downtown Memphis. Interview was conducted in the lobby with about 100 guests and tourists crowded around to see the Duck March. Regional Manager was supposed to be present, but he caught an early flight leaving the sales rep to do the interview. The sales rep was dressed in sweat pants, a T-shirt, and tennis shoes (because he had "been in cases all day"). The interview was basically him reading questions from a sheet and having to yell them to me because of the noise in the hotel lobby. I was neither impressed with the process or the results of my time with him.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked about my relationship with the physician who referred me for the job and if I thought our friendship might help me secure more business in the account.   View Answer

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview Details

    Company relies heavily upon the Gallup phone interview and screening process. The Gallup phone interview can take up to 2 hours and inquires about specific situations whether it be from your personal or professional life and how you handled/overcame each one. There is no right or wrong answer but based on your feedback they are able to assess whether you will be a good fit for the organization. The advice provided to me by the hiring manager for each of my examples was to say that I 'always' went above and beyond, 'always' stayed late, 'always' took on new projects, 'always' a team player...

    Interview Questions
    • Please tell me a time in your personal/professional life where you had to overcome adversity and how has that made you a stronger individual?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Once an offer was extended I only dealt with Human Resources (Talent Acquisition) from that point on and negotiated my salary and sign-on bonus with them.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview Details

    I got an interview on my school campus a week after applying. The interview was 45 mins. The first half was just basic behavior questions and the second half is Gallup style questions. The interviewer was really polite but could be intimidating. They expected questions from you at the end of the interview. They couldn't hire me because of my visa status so they transferred my application to other Stryker locations

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Stryker in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I did an on-campus interview, and the first half of the interview was just me answering Gallup questions. The rest of the interview was more personable, and my interviewer asked pretty generic questions. The interviewer said that I'd receive a response within a week, but this turned out to be three weeks, which was kind of annoying.

    Interview Questions
    • The Gallup questions are definitely the most difficult since they're so fast-paced, but the rest of the interview questions I received were very straight-forward.   Answer Question
