The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Covidien

Interview

Good process overall - they were very friendly from the get-go but somewhat vague on details, even after an offer was made. Seemed like a mission-driven company though. Personnel seemed solid...but its a big company so if you're looking for a fast-paced environment, you'd be better off looking somewhere else.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied through an employee referral The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Covidien (Minneapolis, MN) in Oct 2016

Interview

I was referred internally and located the actual job description on the Medtronic website (they acquired Covidien). I submitted my resume on a Sunday night and was contacted for an initial phone interview on Tuesday. The phone interview was Wednesday morning with an HR representative. It seemed to go really well and she told me I was an excellent candidate and that I would hear about next steps within the next full week. After six weeks of complete radio silence (during which I sent a "checking in" email and left her a voicemail on her business line), I received a formal email that they were going with another candidate. Turns out, the position had been created for someone internally. I would have appreciated some transparency on that fact during the initial phone interview. I waited 6 weeks to hear that I'd never actually had a chance.

Interview Questions
  • Are you interested in having direct reports some time down the road?

Covidien

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Prague

Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Covidien (Prague) in Apr 2016

Interview

Extremely unprofessional, they just seemed to have forgotten about me. I passed the initial interview round over the phone which was followed by 1,5 months of silence, then they called just to start everything all over again. When I came to face-to-face interview, it was one of the most disappointing experiences in my professional life. The interviewer was totally unprofessional, but very arrogant, agressive and unfriendly. She spoke one of the worst variants of English I have ever heard in my life.
