    Plant Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at STERIS (Dallas, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    i was contacted by a corporate recruiter supposedly representing steris. all i can say is, that the recruiter obviously did not want to interview qualified candidates and make a commission as we were never able to connect. since i was unable to interview during business hours, i was given the excuse by the recruiter that "... they would be unable to interview during those hours during the week and on the weekend they would be on vacation..."
    really?
    those so called difficult hours were after 5 pm, and your so called vacation was a lie.
    i want nothing to do with steris or tri-search recruiters ever again.
    completely wasted my time.

    Interviewed with HR first. The interview was about an hour long. I then had a Skype interview with a manager which was about an hour and a half. I then had a phone call interview with senior HR. I then had a face to face with two sales reps and an engineer over lunch. I then met with the person who is covering down on the position for some information about the job.

    Surgical Instrument Repair Tech Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at STERIS.

    Interview

    Basic phone interview, due to the remote nature of the position. A few general questions about my skills and background, then transitioned into explaining the training process and locations for training. Unfortunately, the pay level wasn't as high as I had hoped, so it didn't really proceed further once the topic came up.

    Interviewer was professional and friendly, seemed to genuinely care about finding the right people for the job, and had a good understanding what she was hiring for. I was recommended to keep an eye out for other opportunities and keep in contact if there were any other questions.

    Interview

    6 months long though several stages of phone interviews and finally a face to face. At the face to face meeting, at lunch time, in a restaurant, I arrived 15 minutes early to find the district manager finishing lunch with one of his supervisors. This set the tone for my employment in this district.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at STERIS (Mentor, OH) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR as a preliminary screening process. She was very polite and it felt more like a conversation than reading from a list of questions. Although my skill set was not suited for this particular position, she was able to recommend other options that could be a better fit.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at STERIS.

    Interview

    I applied through employee referral. Since I wasn't in Ohio, I did three phone interviews. Each last on hour. First one was with the HR, just went over my resume. There were a lot of behavior questions. Second and third are with department managers. They were really nice. We just talked about my skill set and what I wish to learn from the internship. It was a really chill process. And after 2 weeks of the interviews I got an offer

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at STERIS (Denver, CO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter suggested immediate availability at a location in Denver, CO. The telephone interview was scheduled for the next day. Interviewer conducted the phone interview, on speakerphone, and seemed distracted. Interviewer also seemed to be hesitant to discuss employment longevity and career advancement opportunities. Some information provided to the recruiter (for the applicant) was incorrect, and affected the tone of the interview when interviewee was looking for clarification on this information (facility capabilities, size of workforce at location, supervisory opportunity, working hours). Interviewer also seemed hesitant to answer pertinent questions about company policies/culture. Feedback was immediately available from the interviewer, but was different from the feedback reported to the recruiter.
