    Principal Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Positive Experience
    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.
