    CAD Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DePuy Synthes.

    Interview

    I do believe my interview process was unique and it may not be this way across the board, but it wasn't as nearly as gruling as it can be at some of the other places in town. I was interviewed by 3 engineers and 2 designers. It was one of the most relaxed interviews I've ever had and I felt comfortable with each person from the start. They mostly wanted to get a feel for my experience with CAD design.

    Medical Device Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hartford, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DePuy Synthes (Hartford, CT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    My second interview was in person with the sales rep that would mentor me and the regional manager. Dress in a suit, don't look too GQ. I came early, waited for them at the lobby of a hospital. The interview had a conversational flow and prodded me first with pleasantries (how was your drive) to asking specifics about me.

    Interview Questions

    • I worked a few jobs and had 2 degrees at the time (science), finishing a third in education. Their main concern was how I could guarantee I'd stay since it takes months and money to train me to be a novice, that the work/life balance is heavily leaning to work and why am I acceptable for this job.   1 Answer
    • Do you have any questions for this role?   1 Answer
    • Note a questions, just things I'd like to pass on. Sell yourself. If you don't sell and close at the end of your own interview, why would they think you'd do it for their products? When I wrote this i was still waiting to hear if I got the job (that's not an option to check off here tho). Be calm, it's just them trying to find out who you are. Try to make this a normal conversation (where you don't just have short answers all the time, where you have a back and forth with your questions too, yes they want to make sure you're qualified but they want to make sure you can work with them, don't be a robot). Not gonna lie, I feel kinda confident i got this job but who knows. Best of luck to you all!   1 Answer

    Senior Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raynham, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DePuy Synthes (Raynham, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    First, I had an interview with Johnson and Johnson HR for about 20 minutes. She wanted to make sure you have all the requirements listed in the job description. At the end of the phone interview, she scheduled me for a phone interview with the hiring manager at DePuy Synthes Spine. In my phone interview with the hiring manager and one of her engineer, she started the interview with asking me if I have any question about the job, while I believe that's her responsibility to describe the position, team, missions, goals, etc. That was odd. They asked me more about my technical skills and past experiences, for example, do you have any experience on testing final products? All questions were relevant and based on the job description and the whole phone interview took only 30 minutes. Four days later, I was invited for the on-site interview.

    My on-site interview started with a written exam which took an hour. Basic and fundamental questions from mechanical design. Not very difficult questions but it needed me to brush up some of my past knowledge like GD&T. Then all the team members sit with you to discuss your answers with you (not to mention that the hiring manager couldn't make it to this part of interview). This can be sort of a stressful situation, especially, that if you have a wrong answer they start discussing with you and make you more confused. Then you will one-and-one interview with each of them for 45 minutes. All behavioral questions. An all day long interview which at some points was unusual to me. I waited four weeks to get a No.
