Clinical Specialist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Medtronic (New York, NY).

Interview

Like many I applied through an employee referral. The whole process turned into a 5+ month marathon with 12 interviews in total. Many of the interviews were scheduled last minute so be prepared to drop everything and run.

After months and months of back and forth contact, the position I had been interviewing for was dissolved. The real kicker is, no one had the decency to tell me this directly which thought was rather unprofessional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Medtronic (Brick, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was very rigorous and the interviewer expected all the formalities to be displayed in the process. The interviewer expects you to go through the Medtronic academy on your own and teach yourself the modules before your interview date. Insanely competitive for the clinical specialist position. I ended up losing out to someone with their phd.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Medtronic (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Terrible. I interviewed with Medtronic on two separate occasions for different positions. This time around I was contacted by the hiring manager that I interviewed with previously) before the position posting was made public to recruit me for the position.

    I underwent some very lengthy interview vetting processes over 3 months my second time around interviewing with Medtronic, only to be gifted with radio silence after the final interview both rounds (same as last time I interviewed with them). Would have been nice to get a straight no.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Medtronic (Munster, IN) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was in two parts. The first was with the clinical specialist hiring manager, while the second was with the regional sales manager. Both took place at a local Panera Bread. The interview was as straight forward as possible.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Medtronic (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The process has been similar to what others have described. I had a mutual friend connect me with the service director and was never contacted through web applications (although, I have learned that online applications are still required). My first interview was via phone and was strictly informational. Since then, I emailed persistently (about every 2 weeks) and shadowed for two days, then met the service director for an in-person interview (again, strictly informational). A few weeks later, I interviewed with regional managers (this time behavior questions), and now, I am waiting to schedule two more days shadowing within territories where openings exist. I have been told that after this I will have one more interview with another regional manager. I am still in the process, but at this point, do not have an offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview

    Very long and lots of interviews with several different managers and even employees you will be working with. Phone, Skype, face to face, and shadows. Looking for consistency so don't try and BS your way through it. They want honesty and integrity. Be prepared to give a mock sale presentation and be on your toes for tricky questions.
