Interview

Employee I know gave me resume to recruiter, Initial phone interview with recruiter about 15 minutes. Pretty basic, get to know you/why want to work here/some gallup questions (eg. on a scale of 1-10 how organized are you). Then had gallup interview a week later over phone, about 30 minutes even though said it would take an hour. Asked for follow up on about 80% of questions (eg. do you handle conflict well? Give situation where you did). Next step was on-site interview a few weeks later

    2. Second on-campus interview
    3. Gallup Phone interview (very important screening process for Stryker...about a 10% pass rate)

    Interview

    First, I talked to a rep at a campus career fair. This led to an on campus interview, with mainly questions about what I was interested in and more technical questions regarding what I have already done. This interview also had behavioral/character questions. The following phone interview was very similar to the first. Third phone interview was Gallup (purely behavioral/character). I was told I would be contacted for a fourth interview, but communications ceased.

    Interview

    Stryker uses Gallup to determine how you will fit into the position you are interviewing for. The profile is saved in you HR folder and reevaluated if you want to change roles throughout your career. The process is a marathon, not a sprint and there seemed to be tricks along the way to catch people off their game.

    • There is nothing out of the ordinary, besides the quantity of interviews and slight disorganization of the process   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview

    Initial interview had about 20 rapid fire questions as a personality test. Stryker wants a specific personality type working for them; it was nervewracking during the questioning. Some questions were like, are you an organized person or disorganized? Type A or Type B personality? Etc. They tell you to answer honestly because, really, if you don't have the personality they want you wouldn't want to be working there. Then the next type of questioning (if I remember correctly) was about a product the interviewer placed in front of me and I had to describe its function, how to test if it worked, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • The usual.. Would you like to lead or serve? Difficulties you overcame. What kind of help do your friends ask from you. Your strengths weaknesses. It was a very generic behavioral interview. They didn't even acknowledge the follow-up email. No one on campus got selected for next round.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker (Kalamazoo, MI) in March 2012.

    Interview

    After initial review with recruitment firm, there was a phone personality test. About 30 minutes long. A series of test questions attempting to classify the kind of worker you are (helpful, motivated, etc.). Next came a long and grueling interview that included complex and comprehensive testing of problem solving skills: including an examination of mechanical print in PDF format (emailed just before phone interview) and a complex puzzle, also emailed. Than a long and grueling live interview with 5 different individuals (about a half hour each, though 2 of them went well over the allotted time). Very intense and grueling for a position I am overqualified for. People were pretty focused and driven. Very confident of themselves. I never received feedback following the interview.

But leadership still drives change to improve engagement and ensure every employee feels valued and engaged in their work. I also believe we have the best managers-- people who really care about their teams and but their employees first. Stryker is a great place to build your career. I've been with stryker over 10 years . I've had many opportunities to grow and develop including consistent new and exciting challenges. I've taken opportunities to move geographically, into a new function, different divisions, laterally and promotions. Stryker has always provided me that next exciting opportunity. Overall the culture at Stryker can not be matched. Imagine working every day with the A team- everyone driving towards the same mission where teamwork and relationships are valued. Lastly, Stryker has come along way in how with work life "balance". Don't get me wrong, we work hard and are driven to do good work. But i have a ton of flexibility in my job. My boss is incredibly supportive of how i manage my work and responsibilities at home. We have tools in place to support employees that work remote some or all of the time and flexible work schedules for many roles. Plus a great maternity & paternity leave package. At this time in my life, i really appreciate that.” – Full Review
