    Financial Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Mounds View, MN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The scheduling of the phone interview and the in person interview was great. The only drawbacks were the slow response time and the strange way the in person interview was conducted. Rather than going to a room to interview, I was moved around to various offices.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Mounds View, MN) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The whole process goes pretty fast, two phone interviews with an offer, in less than a month.The position I interviewed with was a graduation level position, so basically, they need your brain and they can train you, so it is not hard or technical at all.

    Interview Questions

    • Firstly interview only asks you question regarding your resume. Secondly interview: mostly behavior questions. These questions mainly focus on your ability to cooperate, to multi-task, to solve problems in general. They are not hard, but if you get five or six similar behavior questions, you might stuck as well. Be prepared!   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Mounds View, MN) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I had a screening phone interview asking about my background, explaining Medtronic background and a more specific job description. After the phone interview, I was selected for a final round in-person panel interview. The final round interview questions were all S.T.A.R format questions. I was eventually "eliminated from consideration for being nervous" in final interview.

    Senior Reimbursement Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Mounds View, MN).

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with HR, on-site behavioral interview over 5 hours with 6 associated team members. The on-site interview was all STAR format questions with a very fixed time for each interview. Each interviewer had been given 3-4 STAR questions to complete which left no time to actually discuss job responsibilities, team dynamic, or work environment. This was one of the weirdest interviews I have ever been a part of. I walked away having no feel for the job, so I wasn't disappointed when I got the rejection form letter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Medtronic (Mounds View, MN) in March 2016.

    Interview

    On campus interview, and then in person interview (because I was in the area, otherwise a phone interview) with the group. Mainly behavioral questions about how I work with others and how i approach a problem. The interviewers were very friendly and the overall process was very straightforward and relaxed, but the process was quite late in the semester (Spring) and offers weren't given until April.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Mounds View, MN) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Interviews are intense for candidates and do involve interviewing with multiple people at the same time. Interviews could also be via WebEx. It could take a month before you get the offer for the position. In the past they have had hundreds of people applying for one position. Key words from the job description will help you get noticed. It always helps if you know someone who already works there that can put in a good word. Be prepared to give examples on why you are the right candidate for the position.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Medtronic (Mounds View, MN) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Candidates were scheduled back-to-back. A list of 10 behavioral questions were asked. The interviewers wrote down my replies. They did not ask any questions about my experience or skills nor did they comment on my answers. I was allowed to ask questions at the end of the interview. But the interviewer spoke very quickly and kept announcing how many minutes remained until the end. Weird interview!

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Mounds View, MN) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Multiple panel interviews, then finally meeting with the hiring manager. I met first with a panel of peers, mainly taking the form of the technical portion of the interview, and for them to determine if they could work with me. Then I met with another group, less technical, but also people that I would be working closely with, to see if my skills and aptitude was something that would fit into the culture and process. Then, I met with the hiring manager, where an HR rep came in half way through the interview and outlined the benefits package.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions all took the STAR format, at least from the hiring manager (Situation, Task, Action, Results), standard type of questions, but the managers demeanor made this more intense than it needed to be.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase was primarily about benefits and vacation time that I would be starting at, as the they seemed very firm on their dollar amount, but there were gifts of vacation and stock that were negotiated, at the time they were in real need form the skill set that I was bringing to them, so I had a little leverage. The process was fairly straight and handled quickly, like over a few phone calls.
