    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at NuVasive in July 2016.

    Interview

    This was by far the best interview I had. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. The interview lasted from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., but I was given enough time for short breaks and lunch. The styles of interviews differed by interviewee; I have grasped that this is the diversity of the culture here: professional to relaxed, fast paced yet thorough.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at NuVasive (San Diego, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interviews themselves went well and I left feeling confident after receiving good feedback.
    The process took much longer than I believed it should have with week long gaps between communications. I had to initiate contact to get any information on next steps after being giving dates they would be getting back to me. Overall it was a very negative experience.
