Manufacturing Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic in April 2016.

Interview

Met a recruiter at a career fair. She sets up an in-person interview for me at the fair. Interview goes well, basic questions: tell me about yourself, tell me about a time you struggled. The usual. About a week later a recruiter sets up a phone interview with a couple of employees. Again basic questions you'll find by just looking up interview questions on Google and make sure you know your resume in depth, they'll ask about it.

Get a call a few days later from another recruiter, they want me to apply to this Manufacturing position and fly me out for an interview with the manager and to see the facility. Couple days later the same recruiter calls tells me I'm not qualified for the position he offered me. They were looking for at least 2 years of experience and I was just a college grad.

    Interview

    I applied online for this position and received an eScreen document from HR filled with behavioral questions that I needed to send back in two days. Hadn't heard back in 2 weeks, so tried connecting with a manager via LinkedIn. It worked. Manager reviewed resume and set up video conference interview for the next day. Interview was interactive and I was asked about projects and certifications. Cleared that and was set up for an on-site interview the next week. Had one-on-one interviews from 9-2pm with managers and team members. I was informed the next day that about an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Medtronic (Villalba, PR (US)) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Phone called for interview with HR. Initial screening with HR by phone. Set for personal interview at the plant. Met with HR rep. She took me to manager's office where panel interview (3 people) was conducted. Phone call for job offer. Sent Benefits description through email. I have questions regarding benefits. She took 5 weeks to answer basic benefits questions. At an offer negotiation meeting they would not know answers to basic benefits questions like how much dollards does the insurance cover for eyeglasses. Since they took long in answering the questions the position went for revaluation at the new fiscal year. They said the position went into freeze until budgeting process was completed. No further communication from them.

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Medtronic (Humacao, PR (US)) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Phone screening was friendly, as well as reception at the plant. Managers were very polite during the interview. Plant manager was very rude. He seemed tired (maybe bored, or maybe he already had a candidate on mind) and cut the interview abruptly at 15 minutes. Human Resources never follow up or answer phone calls to close the process for you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Irvine, CA (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Basically put into a room and have a series of interviewers enter the room and ask you questions for 30-45 minutes each interview. The questions get repetitive. There were 6 interviewers and I felt good about 3 or 4 of them. The other 2 were tough and didn't seem interested in listening to what i had to say.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic (Santa Ana, CA (US)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The entire process took somewhat longer than expected but was fairly straightforward: HR phone screening, then a day of interviewing on site with several current team members. The interviews were a combo of one on one talks and panel discussions. There weren't many extremely technical questions, but they do expect you to be able to convey your technical expertise throughout the interviews.
