Very Difficult Interview

Manufacturing Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online - interviewed at MAKO Surgical in August 2013.

Interview Details – They responded pretty quickly to my application but then it soon felt like being one of many to be processed or that the company was too busy or it wasn't important for them because it was weeks before the phone interview. Eventually got to phone interview but again felt like it was a bother for them. It took about 45 minutes and the interviewer spoke for 40 minutes.

Interview Question – How would you fix a big mistake made by a co-worker ?   Answer Question

Mechanical Design Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
South Florida, FL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at MAKO Surgical in February 2013.

Interview Details – Hiring manager wanted me to commit during the phone interview to what I could present during an on site interview about my past work. I felt uncomfortable to committing on the spot because most of my past work is company confidential. Manager started haggling with me that I could be open with him etc. I offered I could present past university thesis work but he was not interested in that. I did not like feeling pushed for presenting potentially company confidential material and I refused to do so. This was the breaking point for me and the hiring manager. As a result the interviewing process stopped here.

Interview Question – None really.   Answer Question

Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Bellevue, WA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at MAKO Surgical in January 2011.

Interview Details – I got the interview through a recruiter. It was over the phone. The man on the phone was very straight forward, but seemed a bit like a used-car salesman, was a bit arrogant/rude and overly blunt. He reminded me of a border patrol agent.

Interview Question – Why do you think you even stand a chance to get this job?   View Answer
