    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Medtronic.

    Interview

    Had 2 Zoom call interviews for a final interview. Didn't even have the curiosity to tell me I was rejected, just ghosted me. Extremely unprofessional. People take the time to interview and you don't even have the humility to contact candidates again after MULTIPLE FINAL interviews.
