    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview

    Contacted by an internal recruiter to schedule a 30 minute call. Spoke with her at our scheduled time. Contacted within a week by another internal scheduler to set a call with the hiring manager at the Fremont, CA office. Spoke with him at our scheduled time. My application was coded as "no longer under consideration" on the company site after 7 weeks after the interview. During that entire time, I received no response to my calls or emails to either recruiter/scheduler, initiated upon the recruiter's request we talk after I spoke with the hiring manager. Completely confused as this company has a great reputation for employee engagement and and hiring great talent. This experience was not great.

    Interview Questions

    • Hiring manager asked why I haven't applied to offices geographically closer to my current location. Seemed like a very odd question since the divisions are completely different.   Answer Question

    Associate Strategic Contracts Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stryker (Kalamazoo, MI) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Disappointing. Absolutely disappointing. I expected a company which prides itself on having strong values and ethics to exercise these values and ethics, but it was not apparent during this interview.

    I received an invitation for an interview, which I accepted and provided what was called (by the recruiter) "a fantastic response." On the day of the interview, I was taken aback by how the interview went. There as no discussion about the company, the position, nor my qualifications. All that occurred was a Gallup screening, where there were very generic questions that had nothing to do with how I would succeed with the company. I even tried to bring up discussion about the company and the position by asking 3 follow-up questions, and the responses were vague and one-worded.

     I firmly believe this was very discriminatory for people with disabilities (including myself) because if you don't give the right answers to the Gallup exam, then they will send you a rejection form letter in less than 24 hours. There was no evaluation of my skills nor my qualifications and I expected better from this company.

    Interview

    Recruiter not very organized. Wanted to go through my resume like a story. Very poor layout, didn't talk about any of my jobs, accolades, or experience. Didn't describe job, or have any details about a new position recently created. Didn't ask if I had any questions. This is second job interviewed for and second job I don't pursue due to recruiters.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Stryker in July 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by internal recruiter. Did a phone interview that proceeded to F2F interview with hiring manager. Was in another city, 45 minutes away from me. Was not given any instruction of where to wait for manager at hotel meeting location. I arrived early and sat in hotel lobby. I noticed the manager and another person with her conducting an interview. I couldn't help but keep looking over as I waited patiently (their interview lasted 15 minutes over our scheduled meeting time). I noticed the manager was EATING an apple while interviewing this candidate . I have never in my life seen something like this .
    It appeared The interview was over because they all stood up. Only to wait another 10 minutes to watch them chat friendly/casually with each other. This was nerve-racking to watch . Maybe they should've picked a more private area to meet rather than the first table as soon as you walk through the front door of the hotel ?!?!
    I was motioned to come over to the table. Manager never even stood up when I walked to their table. She had on SHORTS and a Cotton TSHIRT! I was immediately put off. As I was there dressed in a suit . This is a fortune 500 company, and I highly doubt this is how they want their hiring managers dressed at an interview. The other person in the interview was another rep.
    I sat down and she immediately began saying how this was only a 30 min interview. Just to see if they "like me enough to see me again" was turned off from the start. I felt very pressured for time .
    Horrible interview questions. She insulted me by saying she wasn't getting a personal connection with me. And if I walked out the door she'd feel like she never met me. At this point I really didn't know what else to say. I asked the rep next to me what a day in the life was like an as he answered The manager proceeded to get on her phone and check emails/texts.. The interview was over and I was told I would hear from them on Monday . I sent a follow-up email to both the manager and the rep thanking them for their time and looking forward to hearing from them. I never got a reply, never received a phone call or email from anyone stating what the next steps were if any. After three days I finally reached out to recruiter via email, only to receive a cookie-cutter cut-and-paste reply.
    So glad I did not get this job to work under this manager. While Stryker maybe your wonderful company this manager was a complete unprofessional example to what their company stands for to a potential candidate!

    Interview

    Recruiter reaches out, then in person interview with regional manager and sales rep you'll be working for, then gallup, then ride along with other ASR's. Gallup is straight forward "is being (any trait) important, show an example to prove that"

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kalamazoo, MI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.
