    I worked at Nonin Medical full-time (More than 10 years)


    I was with Nonin for almost 14 years and I learned much from the small company kindness. I found that you could talk to anyone including Phil if you had questions or concerns. I have been away for three years now and I am hoping to return to working with Nonin.


    One thing that I can point out is that management was "top heavy". One Vice President works with the US so why have VP's titles and salaries excessively when one can easily do the job?

    Advice to Management

    Nonin was as fair with all aspects in my employment with them. In a very stressful time I made a poor choice and suffered the consequences. I can only suggest that you continue to make decisions based on long term performance vs short term disappointment. My advice is to look at the bigger picture and continue in fairness.

    Anonymous Employee in Plymouth, MN

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nonin Medical (Plymouth, MN).


    I had applied to multiple positions, and so this interview was back-to-back with another interview.
    Group was very friendly and consisted of a manager, an experienced engineer, and a younger engineer. I explained parts of my projects. One of the interviewers was a former student at my university and was familiar with the basics of an on-campus job I held. I didn't get a lot of questions from the group.

    • Did not get many questions during the interview. Any questions were technical, based on previous experience/projects.   Answer Question
