Stephanie - Principal Project Manager - Medtronic Facilities Operations


Principal Project Manager
Medtronic Facilities Operations
Minneapolis, MN

Describe a typical day in your position.

I manage multiple facets of facility projects in our cleanroom, lab and office environments. A typical day for me includes a wide variety of activities. One moment I might be found on a roof of one of our buildings, and the next moment participating in calls with multiple contractors reviewing details of any one of a number of active projects. Example projects include construction of complete new buildings, addition of cafeteria spaces to existing buildings, or perhaps even creating cadaver surgical suites.

Why do you enjoy working at Medtronic?

Each project has a life of its own. I get the opportunity to work with many other Medtronic employees from around the globe. It is extremely rewarding to learn about their roles and responsibilities and how they contribute to our Mission. I enjoy traveling and observing how other business units work and interact.

What do you love about your job?

I love bringing innovative ideas to life through design and construction. I truly enjoy seeing the spaces being used to benefit Medtronic employees, patients and physicians.

What do you appreciate most about Medtronic?

I enjoy participating in the flexible workplace program that allows me to work where I need to and when I need to.

What is something people may not know about Medtronic?

Every December we celebrate our Mission with our patients and their physicians. We celebrate with these patients with tissues in hand.

What is one random fact about you?

I won the All State Photographer in 1994 for the state of South Dakota.

What advice would you give to job candidates?

Be open to new opportunities by raising your hand when no one else does.


Beware of fraudulent job postings from people claiming to be recruiters for Medtronic.

We are aware of job postings being made by people who claim to be recruiters for Medtronic, even using Medtronic employee names, but who are in no way affiliated with Medtronic. We have also been made aware of people posing as Medtronic recruiters and making contact about job opportunities and extending job offers via text message, instant message or chat rooms. These job postings and offers are fraudulent.

Beware of recruiters that ask candidates to submit unusual personal information like bank statements or utility bills, pay a fee in order to be considered for a job, or pay "start-up expenses" after being hired. Medtronic does not require candidates to make any type of payment to them as part of the recruitment process or job offer. The Federal Trade Commission, the United States' consumer protection agency, has online resources for detecting job scams.

Positions posted on the Careers site are legitimate. If you find a Medtronic posting on a site other than our careers site, verify its legitimacy before applying by visiting the Career Opportunities section of our site and searching for the requisition number.

If you think you have responded to a fraudulent job posting or been a victim of this scam, you are encouraged to report it to your local law enforcement and to the Internet Crime Complaint Center for further investigation.

If you have further questions, please call (800) 328-2518.
