    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zimmer Biomet (Broomfield, CO).

    Interview

    Applied online and was selected as candidate. Scheduled and confirmed interview appointment per their online scheduling tool. Interviewer missed scheduled appointment - TWICE. When I contacted to inquire and reschedule - received no response. Escalated as any FYI and was told it would be looked into and someone would get back to me - but no one ever did. Obvious lack of professionalism and respect for the individual..

    Development Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Zimmer Biomet (Palm Beach Gardens, FL).

    Interview

    Applied online. Had a phone interview with the hiring manager and then I was invited for an in-person interview, where I met with some engineering managers, directors, hiring manager and leads in other departments. It was a good interview experience, where they primarily focused on my background and work experience. There were a few questions about design controls as well - but it was pretty easy and I had a few years of experience in the medical device industry. Overall, the interview went very well. I also had an opportunity to go to lunch with the team of engineers and they were all really personable. From talking with the hiring manager, it looked like they were looking for someone to lead a project and who has a few years of experience in the medical device field, which seemed like a great fit to me. However, when the HR made the offer, it was very low - almost 20k less than what I was making at that time. I tried to negotiate with them explaining my current salary and my understanding of the responsibilities for the position. They mentioned that their offer was the max they could go for this position, which was pretty disappointing, as that could have been communicated much earlier in the process. From my understanding and experience, recently Zimmer Biomet has been offering only lower salaries for the new hires. I'm not sure why that is, but it certainly is not competitive.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zimmer Biomet (Warsaw, IN) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Was interviewed for Sr Mfg Engineer position.

    Phone interview with hiring manager was totally unrelated, with questions not related to job description.

    They just post a common job description for all the Mfg Engineer roles. Really disappointing to spend your time and energy only to be interviewed for something else.
