I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Stryker in July 2013.
Interview Details – Applied through Styker website and got a call a few days later. I was surprised how fast they contacted me. Set up time with HR and had an initial conversation and she told me she would pass my resume to the hiring manager. I spoke with a hiring manager and was contacted a few days later about coming in for an in house interview. I had heard usually they have candidates take the Gallup test prior, but it was not the case here. Went in spoke with the team of 4 people, nothing major, very straight forward. They are looking for a right fit and they will let you know that right away. After the interview HR had mentioned they would have me take the Gallup. After a week of no answers from follow up emails and phone calls I took it as they did not want to continue. In my opinion very unprofessional way of going about answering inquires about how the interview process is coming along. If you are willing to bring in people to meet with the team at least tell that candidate where they stand, do not ignore them.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Stryker.
Interview Details – Applied online with a solid resume and cover letter. I felt my skill set matched the criteria and expectations listed for this position. Received an email about a week later indicating that there were other candidates who were better suited for this position. Basically, the email was letting me know that the position had been filled. I actually appreciate this over companies who don't contact applicants after a position is filled. However the post for the jon that I applied for renewed and continued to be posted for over a month?
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Stryker.
Interview Details – Very regimented hiring process. 2 recruiter interview, Gallup Interview, 3 area managers interview, ride along 8 hrs, onsite interview in Kalamazoo with 5 different department heads. Stryker really does its due diligence when bringing people in. Took 5 weeks from start to offer. With all that said the experience was very enjoyable, every person that I interviewed with was easy to speak with and very professional. I totally understand the reason why Stryker puts potential candidates through such a process, the compamy is looking for people that can work autonomously. They do not want to micro manage their people. You have to manage your territory, customer, sales rep, equipment, inventory, reports, relationships. Your office is your home and truck. They invest a ton of time and capital in you in order to drive business and success. So they have to be beyond sure they get the right person that can handle that type of work dynamic. You have to make it through each step in order to proceed in the process. The mentality of those that work there seems to be very positive and happy. The negative reviews that I have read about the process all come from those that haven't advanced or received an offer from Stryker, is that Stryker's fault? If you get the opportunity to go through the process just be yourself, they are looking for people that can communicate well, and don't get flustered in tense situations. Very Positive experience.
Interview Question – None of the questions were difficult to answer. No question like "Does the company come first"' Or "Company first?" I guess for me the toughest was, "What part of the job do you think will be the most difficult to you?" If your honest and be yourself, your experience and personality will speak volumes. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I didn't have to. The numbers, and benefits were all in line for what I was looking for.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Stryker in February 2011.
Interview Details – "The Gauntlet" as they call it begins with a phone interview, typically, followed by a personality screening, and then an in-house interview. It's easy enough to look up the expected questions and answers they are looking for, but if you fake your way in you will likely not mesh with the company culture and will want to pull your hair out. The interview process is seeking out talented people - you need not have experience in medical devices or extensive knowledge on the company's background (just the basics to show you did your research).
Interview Question – What is your biggest weakness? (Always a toughie, but I was asked to reanswer after my first response was deemed not good enough!) Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Stryker in April 2013.
Interview Details – Interview process was standard.
First met with Regional Manager and Assistant Sales Rep went over resume, basic interview questions, and basic responsibilities of the role.
Second interview took place with director of sales and regional manager. Questions were a little bit more difficult. Some situational questions.
Third phase of interview process was to shadow an Account Manager for the day. Basically go from one hospital to another talk about job transition experience, very casual.
Interview Question – Was supposed to hear back after I shadowed for the day, but never did. Contacted the account manager I had shadowed and he said they were still finalizing their hiring decision. However, I still to this day not heard back from Stryker. Tried contacting regional manager several times, and account manager, but still did not hear back. Answer Question
