    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker (Dallas, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    After having submitted my application online a month prior, I received an email from the recruiter wanting to set up a phone screen/interview. This first interview ran about 15 minutes and included a mini Gallup interview and just some general questions about my resume. It was a pleasant experience and she even included information on target salary and benefits for the role. At the end of our conversation, I was told that she would like to schedule me to speak with the hiring manager soon and we agreed on a date and time.

    My next phone interview with the hiring manager was a couple of days later. I again spoke about the experiences on my resume and the position was described to me in more detail. This lasted about 15 minutes as well. Later that evening, I received an e-mail to schedule the formal Gallup test.

    I completed the Gallup test a few days later. It lasted about an hour. It was pretty straightforward; I did not feign any of my responses in terms of my personality. At times I feared my honest responses might eliminate me based on my type A personality and introverted nature. A day after i completed the Gallup, I received an e-mail and call from the recruiter to schedule the on-site interview.

    The on-site interview consisted of 8 30-minute interviews with a large gamut of people. I thought i would feel drained throughout the day, but honestly the time flew bye. Everyone I spoke with was my kind of person: direct, perceptive, and amicable. Throughout my experience, I got a real family sense among the employees and an excitedness to be working at Stryker despite some environmental stressors. I was presented with an excellent offer three days after my interview!

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with a recruiter, then another with the hiring manager, and then another with the Gallup organization. 3 phone interviews that spent more time asking me ridiculous behavioral questions rather than focusing on my skills and what I can bring to the organization! It's like I had to justify my life to them! What kind of company is this? I don't think Scientologists are subjected to this much analysis when they're being audited. Why not just have candidates sit in a courtroom and be grilled by a county prosecutor? Do you even care if my skills are applicable to the job? Why are you so focused on what I consider are the proudest moments of my life? Anyone can "fit" in any organization if given half a chance. Whatever, I'll find my success somewhere else.

    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Stryker (Mahwah, NJ) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Fist they conduct a phone screening, then you interview on the phone with Gallup, and then you are brought on site and interview with multiple teams. The Gallup interview is the most difficult part of the interview process. Just be yourself, because they are looking for a specific type of person and you do not want to be there unless you will fit in well with the company culture.
