    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Medtronic in September 2016.

    Two phone interviews, mostly behavior questions. When they need someone, it must be very urgent. So just relax when you are in an interview with them. You will get there.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Senior Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It started with a phone interview, then I filled out a form, then I went in for a 5 hour interview with 7 different individuals that I would be working with. Medtronic has a "canned" interview guide with "canned" questions they ask you regarding how you operate and how you can fit into the organization. Some people follow the script, others don't.

    The difficult part is having the fortitude to sit in one conference room for a 5 hour period. Each meeting with each individual (sometimes two at once) was about 45 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • An engineer asked me about how a molded part is made after showing it to me. I had to guess where the gates were. He asked how a specific feature was made.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Medtronic (San Francisco, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interview went great but then months of excuses and "we'll be moving in two weeks" but now we're in annual planning and it'll be a couple weeks." 3 months of being strung along is highly disrespectful.
