The Medtronic Mission

To contribute to human welfare by application of biomedical engineering in the research, design, manufacture, and sale of instruments or appliances that alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life.

  • To direct our growth in the areas of biomedical engineering where we display maximum strength and ability; to gather people and facilities that tend to augment these areas; to continuously build on these areas through education and knowledge assimilation; to avoid participation in areas where we cannot make unique and worthy contributions. 

  • To strive without reserve for the greatest possible reliability and quality in our products; to be the unsurpassed standard of comparison and to be recognized as a company of dedication, honesty, integrity, and service.

  • To make a fair profit on current operations to meet our obligations, sustain our growth, and reach our goals. 

  • To recognize the personal worth of employees by providing an employment framework that allows personal satisfaction in work accomplished, security, advancement opportunity, and means to share in the company's success. 

  • To maintain good citizenship as a company.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic.


    I had a phone interview with HR followed by an on-site interview with a manager. They asked typical questions, it was more of a fit interview. For my position, no technical questions were asked but they wanted to see I had a genuine interest in the business and general intelligence. There was a drug test upon accepting offer.
