    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and after the phone interview was brought in for an in-person interview. My phone interview was a very positive experience and was asked great questions. However, the in-person interview it was clear that they needed to interview a certain amount of people and had already picked the individual for the position. I felt disrespected and that my time was wasted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview

    Really enjoyed their interview process. They were friendly the entire time and the process went quickly and smoothly. I recommend Stryker! The process consisted of one initial phone interview going over my resume, and then a Gallup interview, and then an on-site interview. The Gallup ensures you will be a good fit in Stryker's culture.

    Corporate Role Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kalamazoo, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker (Kalamazoo, MI).

    Interview

    1.) Applied Online
    2.) Email from recruiter to set up phone interview
    3.) Had phone interview with the recruiter: typical behavioral questions, tell them who you are, why Stryker, about your resume
    4.) Short phone interview with hiring manager: basic questions about you and who you are
    5.) Gallup Interview
    6.) On site interview: 30min presentation in front of 6 people and then 30min interviews with each one.

    Seems like an intense interview process but really wasn't. I've had very intense interviews with hiring managers who are like robots and show no emotion. The interview at Stryker was actually very laid back, but still professional. The best way I can explain it - it was like having a normal conversation with them about who you are. It felt very normal being there!

    Legal Department Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portage, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker (Portage, MI) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Very similiar to what others have posted, there were 4 steps:
    1) HR recruiter screen
    2) Gallup interview
    3) Hiring manager screen
    4) On-site interview, 30 minutes each with 6 people

    There were definitely a lot of steps in the hiring process, but in hindsight, it really wasn't that bad. Even though I had indivudal interviews with 6 people for 30 minutes each, they were very much conversation based and had a relaxed feeling. I left my on-site interview really excited about the opportunity to join such a great company with wonderful people. Every person made me feel right at home and their demeanor during the interview told me they wanted to be there. They genuinely cared about what I had to say. If you make it to a face-to-face interview, they're looking to see if your personality is a good fit for the team. You look great on paper and have made it past the Gallup, but if you're not the right "fit", you won't get an offer.

    I've been in my new role for a few weeks now, and am 100% confident I made the right decision to come to Stryker. When I asked my interviewers what they're favorite thing about working for Stryker was and all of them said "the people!", I can see exactly why. Everyone I've come across so far is driven, focused, absolutely willing to help out where needed, and wants to see you succeed.
