    It's refreshing to work with a company that is able to act quickly, focused on the customer/end-users, while seeking input from many sources. Friendly and talented team.

    Senior Product Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Nonin Medical (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2013.


    I had a quick screening call, 2 hour on-site, and a full day on-site. No skills based questions really since I was transitioning industries... that is, until the final interview with a sr. leader. Lots of very specific academia-focused questions that were probably serious but a bit of a stress test I would guess. I did not want to work at Nonin after this part of the interview
