Great Company if your Permanent
Product Builder (Current Employee) –  Galway24 August 2019
As a contract worker , you are made to feel like a second class citizen , with no rights . You can’t speak up about anything as it’s frowned upon. Or you are noted as a trouble maker . It’s head down & keep working . Say nothing . Do all the overtime, extra shifts & work hard. This is then not reflected if you apply for any job



Some staff are very nice & friendly , other Medtronic staff are very Vindictive. Reporting you for doing your job , checking your work even tho they are not trained in your area .
Pros
Plenty of over time, good if your full time staff
Cons
Contract staff are treated badly, wages could be a lot better

Depend on which area you work
Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Galway10 November 2018
If you are a contract staff then you get treated differently than permanent staff. You have no rights, and very little privileges and your contract can be terminated at any time without warning. Some Supervisors take advantage of you because they know you can be let go at anytime. If they don't like you then you they will make you live in fear of them.
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
You get bullied as contract staff, supervisors and mangers really use their powers to gt rid of you.

Daily week working in Medtronic
QA Release Inspector (Former Employee) –  Galway31 October 2018
I learned a lot about work culture and communicating with other people in a big organisation. The importance of meeting deadlines, business quarters and preparing for internal and external audits.

I learned how to co-ordinate with groups site wide in Manufacturing, Qulaity Control and Compliance in order to ensure product was released. A good example of this would be a new product launch.

Working with Medtronic made me realise the importance of the products they make and how they have a lasting, positive impact on people's lives. This highlighted the importance of my role as a QA Release worker. We were tasked with ensuring all our finished medical devices were made to the highest standards, that finished devices were tested thoroughly and passed appropriate specifications. We also Device history documentation was reviewed and compliant with Medtronic QMS.

All of this was carried out to ensure patient safety and that the Medtronic brand name would continue to be associated with high standards of Quality and Reliability.
Pros
Subsidized meals, Christmas Bonus
Cons
Shutdown during raceweek (You had to take holiday this time of year)

Grim but well paid
Assembler (Former Employee) –  Galway7 July 2018
Good shift allowance. Plenty of overtime so it’s handy if you are looking to save money. Absolutely no chance of permancy unless you gain promotion which is very limited, no matter how good an employee you are. Very much a two tier system in terms of Kelly staff and permanent staff, which one is reminded about on a regular basis. Canteen is dreadful.
Pros
Wage
Cons
Monotonous, no job security or future

Great company to work for
Manufacturing Operator (Current Employee) –  Galway2 July 2018
Best example I can see of a company that wants to empower and advance it's employees. Management are constantly trying to improve the company while taking employees needs into account - a rare quality not afforded to many. Enjoyed working here and formed many lifelong relationships with my colleagues. It taught me a lot about myself through the opportunities that were given to me and I thoroughly enjoyed the journey
Pros
Great work/life balance and friendly staff
