    Medtronic provides you with many resources to succeed during the interview process. Those resources are current reps that seat down with you and encourage you to ask them many questions. It is crucial to have many GOOD questions ready to show them how interest you are in the company and show them how much you want the job.

    Very competitive but they make you feel comfortable the moment you enter the building.

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Norfolk, NE).

    Interview

    Phone interview with recruiter, then manager. In person interview then offer conversation with recruiter. Interview process was average. HR will "fluff" the attitude of the plant and cost of living for the town. Ask for higher salary and stick to your guns....

    Negotiation

    Negotiate a higher salary up front. Deny the 1 year bonus incentive and ask for relocation assistance. Norfolk, NE cost of living is higher than Nebraska average by about 20% so plan accordingly.

After sending thank-you notes to all only one person responded and seemed to give me a positive outlook. Never heard back from anyone in HR with a status follow up one way or the other.
