Medical Device Operator Interview

Medical Device Operator

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at W.L. Gore.

Interview Details – From application to final interview was just over 3 months. There were 2 phone interviews, one Microsoft Excel test, 3 sets of in-person group (2 people) interviews. The interviewers were pleasant enough, but we are scientists and not known for our communication skills. after the final in-person interview, they followed up to obtain references. The entire process was simply too long. The skills test was dated. The Excel version appeared to be from the 90s.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you disagreed with something your management said. How did you handle it?   Answer Question

Medical Device Operator Interview

Medical Device Operator
Flagstaff, AZ

I applied online and the process took 3+ months - interviewed at W.L. Gore in May 2011.

Interview Details – Panel interview of three. Main interviewer Phil, controlled the interview. All three interviewers asked basic predetermined questions from a list in front of them. The questions were behavioral based about conflict and teams. Halfway through the interview the main interviewer got angry because he said the interview was taking too long. I told him I was answering the questions to the best of my ability and if I had answered sufficiently, to stop me. I was told by a management consulting company before the interview to be thorough when answering. You are selling yourself. Seemed like they only wanted a couple word answers for response. DO NOT EXPOUND YOUR ANSWERS. I'm not a psychiatrist but these were very serious people and by nature I am outgoing. At the end the interview I was asked how soon I could be there, if I could work another shift to train and if I was interested in another open position for which they thought I qualified for. I thought I had got a/ the job. Obviously not, because next day got that call that they were moving on with other applicants. Talking to others that have also been rejected seems like even though you qualify for the job on paper, they are looking for a certain personality type. Hope you fit that. Great company, good luck getting in.

Medical Device Operator Interview

Medical Device Operator
Flagstaff, AZ

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at W.L. Gore in February 2008.

Interview Details – The most important part of the hiring process at W.L. Gore for a Medical Device Operator position has to deal with your references. They will require you to provide a minimum of 3 references. These references must be past supervisors, I believe at least two must be past supervisors and a third can be a personal reference. They will contact your references and if you are able to provide more than 3 references that will be a plus it will help speed up your hiring process. As far as the interview goes expect to be asked many behavioral questions. Do some research on the internet and get some good examples of what behavioral question are and practice your answers. Also they will be looking to see if you can fit into the Gore culture, it is a very unique culture that gives a lot of freedom to its associates so the want to see if you can handle that freedom. My advice it check out the web site and do some research on the culture.
