    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview

    Received an email requesting a time to speak. I was able to speak with the manager the next day. After speaking about the role, I was invited to an in person interview the next day. I dropped everything that I was doing, came back early from a trip and took time off work. When I sat down for the interview I was heavily questioned about my experience. There were STAR questions which I wasnt expecting for an entry level role. I was told at the end of the interview that they had many strong internal candidates that they had many an obligation to go with . The past two interviews I have done with Medtronic there has been an internal candidate the entire time. They recently contacted me about an additional role , but declined, because I dont want to continue to waste my time.

    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.

    Interview

    My interview was setup through a contracting company. The interview process was one single group interview with two senior IT developers looking to add some interns to their team. It lasted maybe 30 minutes. I would say half the interview is behavioral questions, and the other half is going over your past experiences, school projects, what you enjoy working with, etc. No technical questions (it could be different since I was going through a contracting company - not sure - at least not with my interview with Medtronic)

    Interview

    I had applied and the company had the audacity to claim they took "careful consideration" in assessing me and conclude that they were going to move on. I applied not even 12hrs prior, met all the requirement criteria and never even spoke a word to someone. What could someone "carefully" consider when they haven't even spoke to someone? The only variables on the application were questions regarding race, gender, age, and veteran status. So, for someone who meets the criteria, what else could an employer "carefully consider" besides (unfairly and illegally) stereotyping or judging someone for their race, gender, age, or veteran status?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Very casual 30-minute interview - sat down with one employee and talked about my resume, especially the projects and leadership roles I've held. I talked for most of the time, and the interviewer asked me sporadic questions, mostly about any problems I had during the projects (to see how I would respond in tough situations). Barely had any conversation about why I wanted to work at Medtronic, though.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through school's recruiting website and was invited for an interview near the end of February. Interviewed with an alumni who was currently working there, standard STAR questions to assess behavioral attributes and fit to company. Interviewer said they changed their behavioral interview process starting 2017 so past posts may not be 100% accurate. Have not actually heard back but has been almost 3 weeks so I am assuming no offer.
