Field Inventory Analyst Interview

Field Inventory Analyst
Warsaw, IN

I applied online and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Zimmer.

Interview Details – First step was a phone screen which led to onsite 1:1's. Good industry, interesting company, but didn't get a good vibe. Every interviewer had a different vision for the role and two of them actually contradicted each other.

Interview Question – Nothing technical. All the questions were behavioral.   Answer Question

Orthopedic Representative Interview

Orthopedic Representative
Warsaw, IN

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Zimmer.

Interview Details – Hiring process is different for everyone. They generally only hire college recruits for internal engineering positions. To acquire a sales position you either need an "in" or positive experience from another orthopedic / medical device company. They sometimes hire for sales training programs from prestigious universities, but not always guaranteed.

Interview Question – Fit and behavioral questions.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Zimmer.

Interview Details – I was offered the chance to interview for this company through the temp agency I was registered with (only way they hire). I met with the manager, who was very friendly. Our interview was informal and seemed very conversational. She basically wanted to get a sense of whether I would fit in with the group, as the work is fairly easy, but with a small office, it's important to find someone who would get along well with the other employees.

Interview Question – At one point she told me that she was afraid I would find the job boring. After working there for a while, I didn't think that at all, so I don't know why she asked me that... maybe to make sure that I really wanted to work there.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. Pay rate is set by the employment agency, and after a period of three months, you will either be accepted as an employee or let go, but basically if you last the three months, you're guaranteed to stay on.
