    I have been working at Nonin Medical full-time (More than a year)


    Competitive compensation, good work life balance. New executive team seems to be taking the company in a good direction.


    Smaller company that doesn't have clear practices and procedures can make work inefficient/frustrating. Overall not too much to complain about.

    Product Development Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Plymouth, MN
    Accepted Offer
    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.

    Interview Questions

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