    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DePuy Synthes (West Chester, PA) in October 2015.

    The interview process was with the department head and the supervisor. it was very laid back and easy to get through. I enjoy interviewing to see what kind of impression I make and it went very well. There was a small aptitude and math quiz which threw me off but I got through it unscathed. A very enjoyable experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at DePuy Synthes (West Chester, PA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    First 60 minutes was an engineering assessment exam, followed by an hour or interrogation on your answers by a panel of 8 current employees. Each employee then spent 45 mins interviewing individually with 5 min breaks between each. 1 of the interviews was over lunch. First half of interviewing was technical questions, last half of interviews were more behavioral questions. I didn't want to hear the sound of my voice by the end of the day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DePuy Synthes (West Chester, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    1) Phone interview
    2) Another Phone Interview
    3) In person interview where you have to take an exam then have to present your results to a group of people. Then you meet with a bunch of people individually.

    Very unnecessarily long process. Over 2 months in total. Even unprofessional at some point. Took 6 weeks to get an actual offer on paper after they said they wanted me. Then when the offer was extended it was for a lot less than we had discussed at the beginning of the interview process. Ended up turning down the offer because Depuy-Synthes offer was significantly less than my current salary. When I explained to them the reasons why I could not afford to take less (same cost of living) they gave me a 24 hour take it or leave it deadline. HR very rude when I said I was turning down the offer. Walked away because I felt negotiations were handled dishonestly.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DePuy Synthes (West Chester, PA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was pleasant, but involved far more technical questions than I was prepared for. They are absolutely looking for a more experienced candidate than they advertised. I would still be interested in the position, although I chose to withdraw my application, do to personal concerns.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at DePuy Synthes (West Chester, PA).

    Interview

    I interviewed at this company in West Chester, PA a number of years ago. Phone screen went really well but on site interview did not. In fact, the first couple of questions went poorly because the interviewer starting shifting his focus to Regulatory and wanted to know if I had experience in the medical device regulations in detail. I told him this wasn't my focus area prior (nor did it come up during the phone screen) but he clearly didn't care and I could tell I wasted my time. Hope their process has improved since then. Oh and I obviously didn't get an offer.
