I applied in-person and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Stryker.
Interview Details – I initially interviewed before a position existed. This is common as they try to keep the pipeline full until they get headcount for new hire. Process took almost 6 months from start to finish. I had two additional interviews before the offer was extended.
Interview Question – Straight forward sales questions. Same as any sales interview. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Stryker in November 2010.
Interview Details – I applied online through a recruiter for a sales position. I got a call from the recruiter in less than a week. He briefed me on the position and set a time for me to phone screen with him and sell him on why I was the right candidate. He sent me a link to Stryker and asked me to familiarize myself with their products. I had my telephone screen the next business day. He felt I was a good fit and forwarded my resume on to the hiring manager. The recruiter called me the very next day to set a phone interview with the hiring manager. That's where I'm at in the process. I feel confident about my ability to interview but the Gallup poll concerns me a little. All in all, the process is moving very quickly and I've been happy with their choice of recruiters.
Very Easy Interview
The process took a day - interviewed at Stryker in January 2010.
Interview Details – Email from HR to schedule phone interview; Lengthy phone interview with several short questions: Some questions were simply yes or no answers, some had you rate yourself on a scale of 1-10 (how persuasive are you, how competitive are you, etc), and some were short answer. Interview went well, had seen many of the questions she asked me online (that other people had posted) beforehand. Apparently I did well (according to post-email correspondence), however I'm waiting for an update.
Interview Question – Gallop personality test Answer Question
The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Stryker in August 2009.
Interview Details – Focus on personality and how the candidate fits into the culture. After hearing what past reps had to say about how they treat their reps I started having second thoughts
Interview Question – Questions regarding specific experience... both positive and negative outcomes View Answer
Reason for Declining – job is still on freeze
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Stryker in July 2009.
Interview Details – Initial phone interview…one question was to explain my resume in 2 minutes. Another was to put relationships, persistence, and product knowledge in order of importance. I recall having to explain 3 accomplishments I am most proud of. I had read reviews so I expected it would be a little different. I’m waiting to hear back next week regarding the next step.
