I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (United States)

Interview

The interview process was very standard. There was an information session at the college, which was followed by a video interview that lasted 30 minutes. It was a very relaxed back and forth conversation, no intense grilling or questioning.

Interview Questions
  • Standard as well. "Tell me about yourself" "Why are you interested" They did ask you a theoretical question about how you would handle a project and the steps you would take to complete it.

Interview questions were fairly expected. It was a behavioral based interview with most questions starting with "name a time when...". Since I worked in a manufacturing environment I was shown some of the production floor and made sure to ask questions on the process.

I applied online. I interviewed at Medtronic (Galway) in Oct 2015

Interview

I had an interview in Medtronic last week. The Interview was only 15-20 mins long. They didn't ask much bar 4-5 questions. I thought that kinda sucked because it didn't give me much of a chance to speak and sell myself. The panel consisted of a person from the HR department and an Engineer who asked the more technical questions. They got back to me this week to let me know that I've passed the interview stage and am waiting to sit a Psychometric. There might be a second interview if i pass the psychometric stage!

Interview Questions
  • 1. Why did you apply for this position? 2. Do you know Lean Sigma? 3. Do you have any experience in SolidWorks? 4. Describe a situation where you were the leader and what happened?

I interviewed at Medtronic (United States) in Nov 2014

Interview

Met at a job fair and had a 30 minute behavioral interview. Normal questions like when were you in a situation when you had to work with difficult people and how did you resolve the problem? There were a lot of behavioral type questions so make sure you have a situations at hand that can be used to answer such questions. The next step was an interview from the specific location that is accepting intern and co-op positions. I got the e-mail about two months after the first behavioral interview.
