Data Entry Specialist (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – March 24, 2017
As a employee at Medtronic, my job is to get different types of healthcare providers registers for different events hosted by Medtronic. I am also responsible completing and correcting missing data reports as well as building contact record for any healthcare provide that needs to attend an event but doesn't have record in our system. To conclude with my every day task, I am also responsible for completing evaluations daily.
Very great company to be apart of.
I am a 2 year contractor and my job isn't promising.
Had a bad experience there on a project basis. When you interview, they withhold information you will find out somehow later that affects you and you job. They will give you more work than you can stand and have departmwnt meetings all the time so you can't get your work done and nothing ever gets accomplished from those meetings. You can work yourself to death, and they expect more from you. They will always be quick to tell you what you did wrong but, not right just to make themselves look good. They hire some bad people with bad habits and management won't take corrective action to make a better work environment.
Playing favorites among employees whether contractor or not.

Logistics Analyst II (Former Employee) – Brooklyn Park, MN – March 16, 2017
Medtronic was a good place to work. I worked for the company for 24 years and was in many different roles during that time. I developed good relationships with many different people that helped make the process flow more easier.
Senior Operations Development Coordinator (Current Employee) – Plymouth, MN – March 16, 2017
Great company to work for. Medtronic houses a great work life balance. They offer tuition reimbursement, career planning and great health insurance. They understand that people have lives outside of work, and that these lives might sometimes impinge on their time and attention.
Case Specialist (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – March 15, 2017
There is no typical day. You must be willing to work 24/7. I learned a lot about the social dynamic in an OR. The management taught me what I know. They take their work very seriously and helped me along the way.
Data Entry analyst (Current Employee) – North Haven, CT – March 15, 2017
I was hired temp with the thought I would go permanent. They then told me that I cannot get a permanent job because I don't have a bachelors and my current position doesn't exist as a permanent position. I am constantly begging for work. There is not enough to do. I feel that I am not needed.

Customer Service (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – March 12, 2017
I really don't have much to say, The job was easy, Really wasn't any good culture, It was everyone for they self, Hard to move up, Felt like you had to kiss butt to move up and it shouldn't be off of favorites, The most enjoyable part, Was making sure the customers were satisfied. Hearing you save a life made my day, Hardest part was advancing or being recognized.
Sr. Customer Advocate (Former Employee) – Northridge, CA – March 12, 2017
I learned to be a public speaker thru the Toastmaster's at Work lunch club.
I learned a wealth of information about the disease of diabetes and the wonderful products that Medtronic makes to help people face the day to day challenges of living with Diabetes.
The workplace culture became very young-as Medtronic transitioned the sales team from being mostly outside to being more of an inside sales team. Many job fairs were held at various colleges across the country.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with customers that had complaints about products and services- mostly training issues.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to tell people that they were qualified via their insurance and that they would be receiving the cutting edge technology that Medtronic provided.
Gym on the premises and Yoga class after work.
Changes in titles-managment-organizational chart-constantly.
Sr. Customer Service Rep II (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – March 11, 2017
I enjoyed working with the patients and providing them with outstanding technical and medical support. The hardest part of the job is being a robot and court reporter while trying to take care of the patients. The 24 HR Helpline is the most underpaid department in the San Antonio facility and gets treated with absolutely no respect from other departments and this department is clearly the retention department for the Medtronic Diabetes Sales Department. There is absolutely no job security in this department and or room for advancement. Once you are here you are stuck here because no one wants to work in this department.
