    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Covidien.

    Interview lasted about two hours. I interviewed with the Director of the R&D Team, a lead Scientist and three team members. I was given a tour of the facility and a practical test. The test involved a electrical component and a fluid dynamics component.
