Interview

First I had a phone interview with an HR person, then gallup interview, phone interview with the hiring manager, and finally an in person interview. The gallup interview was interesting, I needed to give a lot of examples from previous work and life experience. The in person interview was a long day but seemed well organized.

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

    Interview

    The first part of the interview was questions that you are supposed to answer with a single word response and no additional explanation. Then there were some questions about why they should hire you and they wanted you to explain your answer. Then the interviewer asked about more technical things like the details of past projects.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview

    The interview was about a half hour long of extremely difficult questions. The interviewer seemed completely uninterested and was not friendly at all. Although I was not offered a position, the interviewer definitely did not seem like someone I would want to work with or for every day. This entire experience made me remember why I never bothered with Stryker before. They are looking for specific personality types and quickly write off anyone who does not meet that Type A criteria. My advice is to just be yourself because if they don't hire you, chances are it's not a place you would like to work anyways.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker (San Jose, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First phone interview was with an HR recruiter, and was quite quick and easy. Made it to the next round with no issues, but didn't have much opportunity to detail work history and qualifications.

    Second round was the Gallup interview: this is a very structured process where you answer what you are asked and nothing more, unless the interviewer asks for more information. Received an email a few days later noting that I wasn't a good fit.

    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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker (San Jose, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    1. Career Fair interview (very basic skills assessment. Really to just see that I have a decent resume and that I can talk to people. Contacted me about round 2 interview in less than a day)
    2. Second on-campus interview
    3. Gallup Phone interview (very important screening process for Stryker...about a 10% pass rate)
    4. On site interview (I had nine thirty minute interviews with different departments throughout the day. Not very technical interviews)

    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.
