    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Medtronic (Mississauga, ON) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a reply via email within a few days. I was outside the country at the time so the hiring manager was nice enough to conduct a skype interview. She was impressed so she asked me to come in in person once I got back.
    The Questions were fairly basic, including behavioral questions and "What if" scenarios.
    Questions such as:
    Explain a situation where you were in a conflict with a colleague and how you resolved it.

    The job demanded patience since it required dealing with diabetic customers so the recruiting manager asked me to describe a situation where a customer was agree at me and how I dealt with it.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Medtronic (Brooklyn Park, MN (US)).

    Interview

    I had 6 separate interviews with Medtronic for the same department. I had applied to an Engineering Manager position and was called and had a phone interview for a Senior Engineering Manager position. After realizing I wasn't qualified for the senior level, I was contacted by another representative for a phone interview for the Engineering Manager position for which I applied. I was then invited on-site for a half-day interview. They liked me, but thought I'd be a better fit for an Operations Manager position that was also open in the same department. I was then contacted by another representative for another phone interview. I was then invited in twice, for two different on-site half day interviews.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview

    The interview process was too formulaic. Interviewers had scripted questions and seemed overly focused on note-taking and answer-rating during the interview. I felt that this hindered the interviewers from actually getting to know me.

    Interview

    The response time between the application and phone interview was very short. They got back to me very quick for a phone interview with the Senior Manager of HEOR at Fridley, MN.

    She told me if I was chosen, I would have to interview for a second round with a Manager from another department. She was very explicit about the timeline of when to expect a response, so that was good.
