Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic in October 2017.

Interview

4 rounds of interviews, very competitive. Interviewers were friendly and professional. Be prepared, read about the company, know your resume inside and out, and be prepared to give specifics and talk about your relevant experience in depth. Ask questions about the territory you are applying for to get an idea of what challenges you will face and what the call schedule will b like. Also, make sure you understand exactly what the role requires prior to the interview. Also be prepared to talk about desired salary and how much you made in your previous roles.

    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.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Medtronic (San Francisco, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed for a CS position in northern CA. After initial phone screen with Territor Director, met with several members of management team in interviews at hotel. Multiple candidates interviewing rotation style. Most surprised by the tone of one interviewer/panelist, who was apparently disgruntled to be interviewing me (compared to other candidates). Asked technical engineering questions and covered material from online resource.

    I always prepare thoroughly and the intensity and pace of these 4 one hour back to back interviews was tiring.
    I was offered to go on to next step of interviewing(ride through with team member), but accepted another offer instead.
