    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.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NuVasive (San Diego, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    WARNING: If you value your time and expect to interact with professionals, don't bother with this company.

    The recruiting group is atrocious! Massively disorganized and misleading. I applied online to a position within a week of the job being posted. I was contacted for a phone screening and was told that my resume was being added to move forward. A few days later I received an email from another recruiter telling me that there were already two candidate in the "final stages" and that I would be contacted if they needed to expand their search. I completely understood - sometimes you find the right candidates and move quickly....however...

    A few weeks later, the same job with a different job title but exact job description (but still referencing the original job title) was posted. I applied online and sent an email to recruiter to see if they were looking to fill the same role or a similar one. Within an hour, the job posting was removed and my status within their candidate tracking system was removed. The posting was also shut down on the various job board sites. Its been several weeks and I have yet to hear back from either of the recruiters.

    This is my second negative interview process with this company. The other one was also plagued with a lack of communication and accurate information - and both times the recruiter initiated contact! For a company that prides itself on speed and responsiveness, these interactions have left a sour taste in my mouth.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at NuVasive (San Diego, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Took about 3 and half weeks. Had a phone screening with hr, a phone interview with hiring manager, and then an in person hour and half interview with hiring manager and directer. Standard interview. Getting the offer was the longest part took an entire week from when it was promised to actually receiving offer. This probably had to do with it being so close to end of year and holidays.

    Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at NuVasive (San Diego, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen, followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager, then a 5-hour interview onsite. After the interview I was walked out by one of the people that interviewed me -- but never heard from the recruiter again. In fact, I didn't receive any indication that the job was filled (which it was). I think this is disrespectful to an applicant that spent 5+ hours at Nuvasive. The courtesy of an email or phone call would have been appreciated.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at NuVasive (San Diego, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straightforward, but unique and dynamic. I had a phone interview/initial screening, followed by another phone interview with the hiring manager. After passing that interview, I was brought in house to conduct two in person interviews. I met with a couple of different people each time, business leads that I would be working with cross functionally. It made a lot of sense to me that I would be interviewing with people that I would working with in the future. Lastly, I had to prepare and give a presentation to my entire potential future team. I presented on a clinical article that was about the procedure I would eventually be representing.
