    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview

    Was asked to schedule a ~30 min phone interview that was very friendly. They explained more about the position and asked if I had any questions. The questions were typical, mostly about my past experiences, leadership positions, and accomplishments. There weren't any technical questions at this point. The interviewer was very helpful and willing to answer questions, made it seem like she enjoys her job. Overall a pretty good experience!

    Application

    I interviewed at Medtronic in November 2014.

    Interview

    Met at a job fair and had a 30 minute behavioral interview. Normal questions like when were you in a situation when you had to work with difficult people and how did you resolve the problem? There were a lot of behavioral type questions so make sure you have a situations at hand that can be used to answer such questions. The next step was an interview from the specific location that is accepting intern and co-op positions. I got the e-mail about two months after the first behavioral interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Tampa, FL) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring manager knew exactly what he was looking for. In my case, my background aligned with the manager's needs. The interview was therefore short. However, the managers asked some challenging analytical questions that evaluated me as a fast thinker, and my technical knowledge about basic physics and mechanics of materials.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Medtronic (Santa Rosa, CA) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Brief and undirected interview. Surprisingly, this interview as actually "led" by someone in CA, and not HR in MN, which is traditionally the case. She called later than the appointed time and simply asked, "Why you want to work for Medtronic?" after starter small talk. She seemed shocked when I told her I wasn't American and was absolutely clueless about visas/procedures required. Said she'd get back to me in Nov (2 months post-interview) because she had to look into the visas and things; never did.
