In an effort to support the hiring of US veterans, Stryker is proud to announce that we joined the 100,000 Jobs Mission in 2014. The 100,000 Jobs Mission began in 2011 as a coalition of 11 companies committed to hire 100,000 veterans by 2020. Since then, the coalition has grown to more than 180 companies that represent almost every industry in the American economy. Each company has committed to hire veterans, report their hiring number on a quarterly basis and share best practices. Together, the companies have hired 200k+ veterans, more than double the original goal! Building on this momentum, the Mission has raised its goal-pledging to hire 300,000 U.S. military veterans. As a project member, Stryker is committed to helping the coalition meet its goal. Being a part of the 100,000 Jobs Mission is just another step in our focus on creating a diverse and successful culture—making Stryker a great place to work!

I have been working at Stryker full-time
This company has an unsurpassed culture. Very inclusive and has a wonderful work-life balance. This is a workplace where your efforts and strengths are celebrated. Leadership has great direction and very approachable. Stryker hires those with drive to do the very best and work off of unique strengths and talents. With that being said, I believe the Stryker hiring process is a very sufficient method that results in certain criteria and mentality. Overall as an employee your contributions count and hard work does not go unnoticed. I am fulfilled in my position and am given ample opportunity for growth. From the top down, the typical Stryker employee is driven to deliver quality. My spouse and I both work for the company and love working here!
If you are not a learner by nature, I believe it would be difficult to work here. As a new employee you are not spoon fed information, you must seek out the opportunities to learn. This is not for everyone so if you don't have the "learner" trait or aren't proactive/self-starter, you may have difficulty adjusting.
Advice to Management
Management does a fantastic job in creating an inclusive environment. Very knowledgeable and always approachable.
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Stryker (Dallas, TX) in October 2016.
After having submitted my application online a month prior, I received an email from the recruiter wanting to set up a phone screen/interview. This first interview ran about 15 minutes and included a mini Gallup interview and just some general questions about my resume. It was a pleasant experience and she even included information on target salary and benefits for the role. At the end of our conversation, I was told that she would like to schedule me to speak with the hiring manager soon and we agreed on a date and time.
My next phone interview with the hiring manager was a couple of days later. I again spoke about the experiences on my resume and the position was described to me in more detail. This lasted about 15 minutes as well. Later that evening, I received an e-mail to schedule the formal Gallup test.
I completed the Gallup test a few days later. It lasted about an hour. It was pretty straightforward; I did not feign any of my responses in terms of my personality. At times I feared my honest responses might eliminate me based on my type A personality and introverted nature. A day after i completed the Gallup, I received an e-mail and call from the recruiter to schedule the on-site interview.
The on-site interview consisted of 8 30-minute interviews with a large gamut of people. I thought i would feel drained throughout the day, but honestly the time flew bye. Everyone I spoke with was my kind of person: direct, perceptive, and amicable. Throughout my experience, I got a real family sense among the employees and an excitedness to be working at Stryker despite some environmental stressors. I was presented with an excellent offer three days after my interview!
