    Interview

    Phone screen, then interview with District Manager, then final interview with DM and his manager. Follow up was pretty quick, found out in 3-4 days. Basic interview with behavioral type questions, not as many as I expected.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews with members of leadership and local team. all standard questions with focus on working as a team, communication, ability and desire to handle call. Process took awhile. Went through multiple phases with multiple interviews with Regional Manager, then multiple members of team, and finally senior leadership at VP level. Overall it was a standard process where they see if you can be an integral part of a team, find out what kind of relationships you have and then they access your technical experience and sales acumen.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Medtronic (Louisville, KY (US)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely time consuming. In all, there were 8 interviews, including 3 phone, 3 face to face (panel and 1 on 1) , and Gallup. I made it to the final and
    interview but did not get the job. The lengthy process seemed extreme for the position and the compensation.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Medtronic (West Palm Beach, FL (US)) in August 2016.

    A person from human resources called me. When I returned the call my resume wasn't in front of him. I was asked about my experience in medical sales, what college I attended and what degree I had. I was told my resume was being passed to the manager in the territory. It was up to her if she wanted to set up an interview. I never heard from the manager in the territory.

    Interesting interview process. Each individual I interviewed with (3) spent 90% of the interview telling me how great Medtronic (God-Like) is and how dishonest and unethical the competition is.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Medtronic in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty standard in the medical device company world. I was asked the standard behavioral questions, then lengthy questions about my background experience. There were 2 interviewers and both were courteous and invested in my responses. One of the interviewer seemed to deviate off topic a lot, which caused the interview to go longer than expected.
