    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    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

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview

    It was a long interview process which consisted of several phone interviews, multiple in-person interviews and right-alongs with reps working in the field. The interviews were very challenging and often felt like interrogations to gauge how the applicant reacts in stressful situations.

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Highlands Ranch, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Stryker (Highlands Ranch, CO) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview with a recruiter which I thought went well other than the fact that she told me she has worked nights and weekends since she has started in the role and feels overworked. I then had a phone interview with the recruiting manager which I also thought went well. I was told I would get an assessment to complete. I never received an assessment. Over the following 2 months, I emailed and the recruiter and the recruiting manager multiple times to follow up and never received any response. I still have not heard from anyone nor have I received an automated email telling me I am no longer considered. Overall, being a recruiter, I am very disappointed with this process. To have my emails ignored with no response after 2 interviews is a horrible candidate experience. I also have a friend who went through the interview process for a sales position and the same thing happened to him.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Stryker (Kalamazoo, MI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, received email from recruiter. 30 minute phone interview with recruiter the following week and then 1 hour interview with hiring manager. 1 hour gallup interview where they ask situation based/personality questions. I was invited to on-site whole day interview which went from 8 am to 2 pm with interviews with 8 different people in cross-functional teams. Each interview was 30 minutes long, everybody asked the same sort of questions over and over again. You'll get tired of telling the same thing to everybody for an entire day. Was later told I was not a good fit, but they would like to consider me for a different role.

    Principal Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Stryker (Fort Lauderdale, FL).

    Interview

    This process took over 3 months! Pathetic waste of time. The recruiter called and warned me that this process takes forever. I had a recruiter interview. It took him a month to call me back with a technical interview. Then it took another month to setup a Gallup. and then a week after a technical on site interview. I really felt some of the questions that were asked technically were inappropriate and they seemed like they were all Alpha males. I could never see myself working in a company full of alpha's that seemed to be losers or bullied in the past.
