    Average Interview

    Interview

    Good process. First discussion with HR by phone. Then met with HR and then a mix of legal and business people when brought on site. Everyone was friendly and most of the questions were based on my history, resume and experience. They seemed to be interested in whether I could jump into the job right away as well as my personality.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview

    The root of the questions are STAR format although some of the interviewers made it more like a discussion than others. Many of the questions were focused on determining leadership skills.
    The interviews took place in the office, both in person and via phone/teleconference. I met with multiple different people on the first day and had a follow up with one person about a week and a half later.

    Project Coordinator II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Medtronic (Memphis, TN (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process wa little over an hour lateras fairly easy. I received a call from Human Resources. They asked me a few questions and she informed me of the process. She let me know she was screening applicants and that a second telephone interview would take place the next day with a department manager. She told me the questions I would be asked were going to be behavioral question. Well about a little over an hour later, I received a phone call from the department manager but unfortunately I had left to take my baby to the doctor. I returned the call the next day because it was too late to call when I returned. I called and I didn't get an answer and left a voicemail. My call was returned about 20 minutes later. I was told they were still screening applicants and she began to ask me questions. I was expecting behavioral questions based off of what was told by HR but the only questions that was asked were things that was found on my resume. She talked to me for about 5 minutes. It appeared to me that she had already made her decision before she called me because I really didn't stand a chance. After the phone call, less than an hour later I received a rejection email. I only wanted a fair shot at the job opportunity and I don't feel like I received that.

    Interview Questions

      My second interviewer asked the same questions as the HR representative.
