    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!

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process took approximately 6 weeks. I was an employee referral and went through the HR phone screening, a 1:1 interview with the RM, Gallup Personality Test, and a Case Study presentation in front of 3 RM's. The entire process was a good experience for someone like me who is coming from outside of the medical device industry. I will note however, that in my "Case Study" presentation/interview, hardly any emphasis was placed on the actual work and thought process behind the study. The interview rather, was filled with role playing scenarios and questions relating to the hospital dynamics. I found this to be slightly off putting. As a candidate coming from outside of the industry who progressed through to this stage, the RM's knew my working knowledge of Hospital dynamics was limited...which is why showcasing my thought process around the case would have actually been beneficial to explain my logic and reasoning concerning financial options presented rather than focusing on what my conversation with a surgeon would be (something that can be taught). They say they don't mind candidates without prior med device experience.....my experience taught me otherwise. Something to keep in mind. Goodluck!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker (Fremont, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    They came to my campus and I dropped my resume. I then completed a quick 5 question online interview (behavioral). Then the following week I got a phone call about a Gallup test which is a 60 minute rapid fire interview where they ask you set questions. You are able to explain your answer for some of them. It's a combination of experience questions mixed with yes/no questions. Honestly, I don't see how that test is reflective of an individual.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a on the phone interview which went great. The next step is with Gallup, it took me approximately 50 minutes to complete the interview and the next day I got a email saying I wasn't going to the next step. It left me confused on how things are determined, I did ask the Gallup interviewer he couldn't tell me though.
