Financial Analyst Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Stryker (Kalamazoo, MI) in July 2017.

Interview

First an HR phone screen then you will speak with the hiring manager. The next step is to take the Gallup test then from there, if you fit their model, you will then have an onsite visit consisting of a 20 minute presentation and a series of 5-6 30 minute one-on-one interviews.
My experience: During this process, I was handed off 4 different times between HR members: the rep who recruited me, my onsite coordinator, the corporate HR rep, the teams HR rep. First mistake: I was notified 12 hours before I had my onsite interview that I had to give a 20 minute presentation. The onsite coordinator wanted to make sure my file would load on their computer and emailed me to have it sent over. Questing what she was talking about I called her and then 5 minutes later my corporate HR called me to tell me about the presentation he was supposed to tell me about when he setup my onsite interview a week prior. I ended up presenting fine and received an offer 2 days after my onsite interview and then went into the background check process. This background check is done by a 3rd party who only reports to the corporate HR rep and not the teams HR rep. 2 weeks passed and I was notified by HR that if I hadn’t heard anything from the background check company by now I was fine and can give my current employer notice, so I did. I quit my job that Thursday then was informed the following Friday afternoon they had a concern on my background check and would notify me by the following Thursday if I would receive the offer, mind you the paperwork I completed earlier is an offer but is contingent on the background check. The following Thursday came and no one called, emailed or returned my calls. The following Friday morning I received an email from the teams HR rep that they were rescinding the offer. Despite my efforts to contact the many people above, including my future supervisor, my phone calls were not returned and I do not know why I failed the background check and am now unemployed.
Please be wary of this process, there are too many hands in the pot.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Stryker in July 2016.

    Interview

    Had an initial phone screen with HR which went well and was asked to come in to interview with hiring team. Met with 4 finance managers and those interviews also went well. Was called by HR and asked 10-15 Gallup personality questions, and was asked to come in the following week for an interview with 2 more senior employees and a VP of HR. A few days before this 2nd on-site interview I had a 45 minute call with someone from Gallup to take a full personality test. Somehow with the same answers I provided to HR and the 4 finance managers I failed and my 2nd on-site interview was canceled. They want a certain type of employee and weigh a lot on the Gallup test. Even if the team you would be working for thinks you're a good fit, you're out the door if the interviewer from the Gallup firm tells them otherwise.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stryker (Kalamazoo, MI) in February 2016.

    Interview

    This was internal but I would imagine the process would be similar to an external candidate except that the process might be a bit longer and more rigorous. Once I had submitted for a role I was interested in, I was connected with a Candidate Care Specialist that would handle the details surrounding my interview schedule and what to expect. The process overall can vary slightly depending on the role. I was scheduled to interview with 6-7 people, one after the other for approximately one half hour per interview. It's nerve-racking just because of the number of people and what have you, but there was one thing that happened during this process that I thought was a little bit special. The specialist greeted me the day of the interview and brought me to the conference room where I would be spending the next 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Before anything started, she just sat down with me and talked about random things which really put my mind at ease. For any of you out there that don't particularly enjoy interviewing, this really helped me calm down and focus on being personable and "normal." You can really blow an interview if you come off as nervous the whole time. Some of that fades just with more and more interview experience, which was the case for me.

    The process in general went smoothly. No matter the interviewer, they were on time and extremely courteous. There were no surprise "gotcha" questions or things meant to throw me off guard. And, one important practice that I thought was important was the fact that I was interviewed for potential, talent and personality- not my ability to regurgitate things I remember from college. It was an entry level role, and my interview was treated that way. So, one thing to keep in mind is what you are interviewing for. If it's entry level right out of college, remember who you are is far more important than what you know (in my opinion, at the entry level). It's okay to be smart and you should be prepared for these questions, but your fit within the company, in the department and among the team is what really matters from my perspective. It doesn't mean the interview process is easy, because you need to be well-rounded and thoroughly prepared to sell and present yourself with detailed Q&A.

    The styles of the interview had a tendency to have questions that built on one another, which meant you had to be prepared to talk at length about anything that you brought up from an experience perspective whether it was personal, professional or educational.

    Interview

    Applied online, recruiter emailed the next day to schedule a phone interview. Received the one phone interview. Was told that there would be 3-4 phone interviews but have not heard from anyone since the first phone call. They were all nice but wish it was more transparent when or if they will call again.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Stryker in August 2013.

    Interview

    I applied on their website and received an email one week later to schedule a phone interview. 1st interview is with a recruiter for about 10-15 minutes. They asked me basic questions about myself and my resume. (Why do you want to work for Stryker, Why do you want to leave your current job, etc.) 2nd interview was about 30-45 minutes with the hiring manager. Make sure you know your resume well, a lot of the questions will be about your experience. 3rd interview was a 60 minute phone interview with Gallup. Stryker uses this company to better determine your personality. Be sure to study your answers for the general questions for this and have at least 3-4 work examples that back up your answers. Questions are fired off nonstop and ask for many examples. 4th interview is with 4-5 of your potential coworkers ranging from HR individuals to the top manager in that division to see if you are a good fit. Stryker puts a lot of effort in finding the right candidate and cares a lot about your future!
