Manufacturing Engineer

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Stryker.

Interview Details The initial process was long. Started with several phone interview with the recruiter. The response time from each email sometimes takes as long as a month. If you are selected for further screening, you will be contacted by a 3rd party company called gallup to see if your traits fits what they are looking for. An onsite 5 hr interview comes next if you are selected and you will be interviewed by several managers and engineers.

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Stryker.

Product Vigilance Associate Interview

Product Vigilance Associate
Selzach (Switzerland)

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Stryker in June 2014.

Interview Details Preliminary HR round to clarify come points on my CV followed by a Gallup telephone interview and ending with a face-to-face meeting with the team manager on location. The Gallup round *must* be cleared to be eligible for the final round. It was not hard, but at 90 minutes, was painfully long. the final round was very pleasant and at the end I was made to meet the rest of the team, which already gave me an indication that it had gone well. The time between application and the first HR interview was 8-9 weeks, which is ridiculously long considering that this was only an entry level position. The Gallup interview was a week after, and I was informed the very next day that I had made it to the final round. the final round was scheduled the following week.

Interview Question – The Gallup interview solely tests personality and has absolutely nothing to do with the technical profile of the role. Answers to some questions had to be justified with examples from professional or private life.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Better role and better offer from a competing company.
