    It was very easy. A few basic questions and asked if I was interested. I had the only interview and was offered the job all in the same day. The company was especially interested in the fact that I have a MS and I was able to negotiate a higher pay because of that.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Zimmer.

    Interview

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Zimmer (Warsaw, IN) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I found out about the job through a recruiter. The process was smooth, professional and quick. The HR department was very pleasant and cordial. The interviewers were prepared, knowledgeable and open about the challenges they were facing, and clear about the goals and expectations. 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. The interview involved technical and behavioral questions. All interviewers appeared to be experts in their specific fields.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Zimmer (Warsaw, IN) in September 2014.

    Interview

    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

    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...

    Negotiation

    I asked for a lot, they were prudent, yet I feel like I received a good counter. We narrowed gap and got the deal done. We both wanted it to work out so it wasn't contentious.
