    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Covidien in March 2016.

    Interview

    The Interview itself is straightforward, asking me about CAD and showed me a lot about what does the company do. The bad thing is I got a decline email even before I finished all the interview process. I didn't know what was wrong.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Covidien.

    Interview

    Initially applied through a recruiter. A phone interview was set with hiring manager and a staff engineer. Hiring manager didn't participate. I was asked for an onsite interview. Interview took 7 hours. I was asked basic and advanced questions. As a phd in process control it was insultive to be asked first year undergrad coding skills and jump to signal processing equations but anyway I didnt say a thing. Last person in interview was hiring manager which told me the staff engineer will be my manager and their plan was to hire a staff engineer not principal. What a waste of time!!!! Unprofessional act of pulling people to their office.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Covidien (Mansfield, MA).

    Interview

    Had a phone screen with the recruiter, then was invited to a face to face interview on-site.
    What you would expect as far as technical questions go. The manager and the team interview was relaxed. Being able to interface well with others seemed highly important. Everybody I spoke to was cordial and willing to answer all my questions.

    Manufacturing Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Augusta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Covidien (Augusta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The process seemed pretty easy. I applied online and several weeks later was contacted by an HR person/recruiter. She set up a phone interview for me. During the phone interview, my two interviewers went through my resume and asked me about my experience and interest with the company. Several days later, the HR person contacted me again to set up a Skype interview. However, about a month went by and I didn't hear anything. Finally the HR person contacted me again about flying out to the facility for an interview. Within two days, they changed the travel arrangements and interview date on me four or five times. I had to take two flights to get to the facility, but everything was paid for. The on person interview was how I expected the phone interview to be: the standard "what would you do"/"how would you react" type questions. However, one of the interviewers spent most of the time telling me about his health issues. I also received a tour of the facility and was taken out to lunch. It was much longer than I would have preferred, but that is okay. Finally I was able to leave. I was told the HR person would follow up with me. About two days later, I received a canned email that I hadn't gotten the job. Nobody ever called me or anything. I was not too upset about not getting the job, but the manner in which I was not chosen seemed very insulting to me. I had taken four flights in two days to be at the interview after all .

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard. Reviewed my qualifications/resume during phone interview and then situational questions during in person interview.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Covidien.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with the supervisor himself. The questions were simple and each person had the opportunity to answer each question. It was mostly about if you had any prior experience as an assembler before.
