    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my school for an internship. I was invited for a face to face interview, but haven't heard back yet. I believe some people have gotten a no already but I haven't heard anything, so I'm not sure how it went. The face to face interview consisted of a couple of technical questions (regarding my own expertise), but was mostly filled with a lot of quick personality questions.

    HR Wrap Up
    *

    Hiring managers: Hiring managers were friendly and charismatic. They felt like the people you WOULD like to work for.

    The engineers who interviewed me, though, were another story.
    Technical Interview 1: One was an introverted soft-spoken man who never responded to the answers I was giving for technical questions. Essentially faced with a blank face, I was unsure what to do next after answering a question.
    Technical Interview 3: This guy was easily very proud of himself. After answering questions, he was eager to correct me and point out what was wrong. At one point, he called me a liar, which was very offensive. He was quite spiteful in his tone of voice--until his superior came to interview me. Then he turned all smiles and "bro-on-bro," which only made me more disappointed with who I would be working alongside with.

    HR was extremely friendly and dynamic, but I will not pursue a job there considering the people they chose to interview me were not inspiring.

    First, I went through a phone screen that was very easy. Next, there was an outsourced interview that was much longer. Questions asked were not relevant to position, especially as a student.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Stryker.

    Interview Details

    If you are interviewing via an on campus interview, the first round interview will be half technical questions, and half "fit" questions, to see if you will fit in the Stryker culture.
    if you make it past the interview on campus, you may have a phone interview with the team that wants to work with you to see if you would fit the job description. After that, you will have a gallup personality test done, that is done over the phone and takes about a half hour. then you will have on-site interviews if you make it past that point.

    Interview Questions
    • As far as the technical questions, they will ask you things like "what is something that you have gained a high degree of competency?", and then ask you to go into detail about it. As far as the fit quetions, they may ask you things like:
      Are you more aggressive then others
      how you you rate your aggressiveness on a scale of 1 to 5?
       A follow-up question could require the participant to give an example of a situation where they did or did not use aggression to handle a situation.
      What was the last thing you purchased for someone?
      How would you rate yourself on a scale from 1-5?
      Why do you think you are more qualified for this job compared to others that are applying for the position? Please be specific.
      Do you consider yourself to be an egotistical person?
      Would you prefer to be paid on an hourly basis or do you think that you would be better suited with performance-based wages?
      How do you handle team members who do not pull their own weight while on the job?
      In a meeting, do you ever consider it unnecessary to talk?
