    Interview Details

    Simple interview. On campus recruiting, then was contacted later in the day for an interview. The interview was simple and relatively easy. Straightforward questions, strengths/weaknesses, and examples of previous leadership and teamwork. Two interviewers talking to me, each had a few questions of their own. The interview was pretty short, only lasting about 20 minutes.

The environment was clean and the individual lined up to be my boss was very nice and down to earth. All interviewers were prepared and had read my resume.

    Manager badmouthed current reps during interview, years later the reps were still there and the badmouthing continued behind their back. This was a red flag I should not have ignored.

    IT Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Warsaw, IN
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Zimmer in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the position in July. Received email to setup interview with IT Director. Interview went well. Invitation to setup interview with Analyst. Interview went well. After 4 weeks, they called and asked if I would work for another location and come for face-to-face interviews. They changed schedule on me at last minute (which appeared as if I didn't have correct schedule). HR manager was unable to answer questions I asked. Think she felt offended ultimately. Everyone else was great; HR manager just not engaged; didn't seem to care; no personality.

    Interview Details

    Started with corporate HR,then direct regional sales manager. He used typical interview questions. A couple of history, a couple behavioral. Seemed to be based mainly on feeling and connection. Went to Regional Director from there. Wanted to mainly get background and see if you were a good fit for company, since the final interview was with VP of Sales and Director of HR. Nothing surprising from anyone. Good specific questions on background and experiences. Tell me about a time that you...

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Zimmer in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the third party recruiting organization for a phone screen. When the interviewer determined that they were impressed with my credentials, they moved forward with submitting my candidacy. I received notice of an face to face interview within about 1 week and Zimmer took care of all the travel arrangements. The interview took place in Warsaw and lasted about 4 hours, during which I talked to 4 different individuals: HR, my (would be) supervisor - director of engineering, another director of engineering, and the VP of R&D. They asked me various questions about my background, engineering principles, risk management, and product development. Within a week of my interview, I was notified of a potential offer, pending a background check.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult questions were about the development process that I was unfamiliar with. Once I realized that these questions were asked to determine my own abilities of recognizing my knowledge gaps, I was able to answer with confidence.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation necessary - the offer and associated benefits were very robust.
