    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews with members of leadership and local team. all standard questions with focus on working as a team, communication, ability and desire to handle call. Process took awhile. Went through multiple phases with multiple interviews with Regional Manager, then multiple members of team, and finally senior leadership at VP level. Overall it was a standard process where they see if you can be an integral part of a team, find out what kind of relationships you have and then they access your technical experience and sales acumen.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview

    I had two phone calls. The first was for an analyst position with the manager and a few people from the department. They mainly wanted to get to know me and asked about the work I had on my resume and asked what I knew about the programs they worked with. I got a call a few days later asking if I would be interested in another position and we talked about similar things. No technical questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Medtronic (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email for an in person interview at a Panera Bread nearby (seems to be pretty common). The guy was rather informal, friendly, and straight to the point. Typical interview questions, he explained the job and company thoroughly before asking me questions. The interview seemed more like an informational session about the job than an actual in-depth interview about my qualifications.

    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.
