Manufacturing Engineer Interview
I applied through college or university – interviewed at Stryker (Tempe, AZ) in October 2014.
1. Tell me something about yourself?
Then I talked about myself for a little bit.
2. What do your think it is your strength?
3. Tell me something you know about Stryker and why do you want to join us?
After that, I ask the interviewer how he get into Stryker and how did he like Stryker. He told me that he was actually a mechanical engineer, and after he get into Stryker, he worked on a position on quality assurance. He also told me that there's a lot of training in Stryker and a lot of corporation and interpersonal communication.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Stryker (San Jose, CA) in March 2011.
I initially applied through CareerBuilder.com and immediately had to fill out a personality questionnaire before the application can be officially processed. The HR contacted me soon after about a manufacturing engineering position, asked me a few questions about my work experience and some situational questions. Following the HR phone interview I was told that I would have to pass a Gallup assessment phone interview scheduled a week later. The questions were simple to answer, all situational. Ex. are you an aggressive personality? How do you define a person with common sense? I passed the test and a few days after was invited for an onsite interview. The onsite interview consisted of short 30 min interviews with a broad range of managers and engineers, I had a total of 11 people with whom I interviewed. The interview itself was very nice, informative and gave Stryker a great working place sense. Lots of advancement within the company is offered and the people seem great. By the way, the average age of the employees is upper 20's lower 30's. The job is very interesting, challenging and rewarding. Lots of helpful and nice people work here, it seems. Work culture seems very team oriented, from first glance, although I did read other reviews that state the opposite. Seems like a great place to work, but relocation, cost of living and the pay itself are factors that should be considered.

The process took a day – interviewed at Stryker (Kalamazoo, MI) in December 2009.
I had a initial telephonic interview with the HR person. It lasted for around 40 minutes. All were behavioral questions with many of them requiring an example to substantiate your view.
Some of the questions were like
How competitive are you (Scale 1 to 10)
Do you think you should be liked at work?
What does 'team' mean to you?
What does customer service mean to you?
- Tell me a time when you maintained focus in spite of several distractions Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Stryker (San Jose, CA) in October 2009.
Applied online and was provided with an online Gallup evaluation/personality test after entering my education, field of study, and other information. I received an email the next day from a recruiter to schedule a phone interview, which was similar to the online Gallup evaluation (i.e. lengthy and redundant). I was contacted again by the same recruiter to set up a time to talk to a Gallup representative. The Gallup interview was also very lengthy and vague. I was then contacted by another recruiter from another division.
Advice to the recruiters: don't waste job seekers' time on the phone and have them go through several Gallup tests (which are very redundant) and rather have them come to the office for an in-person interview after the initial phone interview, especially if they are local!

I applied online. The process took 6+ months – interviewed at Stryker.
The initial process was long. Started with several phone interview with the recruiter. The response time from each email sometimes takes as long as a month. If you are selected for further screening, you will be contacted by a 3rd party company called gallup to see if your traits fits what they are looking for. An onsite 5 hr interview comes next if you are selected and you will be interviewed by several managers and engineers.
