- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at DePuy Orthopaedics.Interview Details
Disclaimer: I've begun to understand that there is not really a "standard" interview process at DePuy. Some of my co-workers had a single in-person interview. Some did several phone and video conference interviews... the following was my experience.
I had no contacts at DePuy, and I just did a basic New-College-Hire online submission. I don't remember exactly how long after I submitted my application that it was when they contacted me, but it was within 10 days or so.
I was out of state, so they called to set up a video conference interview. In the video conference I spoke briefly with the HR guy that contacted me, but the actual interview was with the guy that is now my boss and another senior engineer. They asked the general interview questions (weaknesses, strengths, how you work with others), several basic engineering questions (stress/strain, drafting stuff), and they told me about the position.
I was told I would hear back within 3 or 4 days, but it was closer to 2 weeks when they called. They flew me out for an on-site interview with two other candidates (they kept us separated). I was asked to do a small presentation with my conclusions about a case-study that they had given me, and was then grilled by senior team members (in a friendly manner) about the things I had missed or had failed to elaborate. They gave me a tour of the site, I met all of the team, had lunch, went home.
A week or two later the HR guy called and gave me their offer. Now I work here.Interview Questions

- I don't really remember. However, I do recall that there were several questions in the video interview and in the case study to which I just had to say that I didn't know. Answer Question
