I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MAKO Surgical in October 2010.
Interview Details – Applicants for software are given a phone interview and a programming test to ascertain their basic skills.
Software face-to-face interviews involve us giving a demo of the system, the applicant giving a group presentation of their skills and experience, and then a series of short Q&A with groups of 2-3. This generally lasts most of the day.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at MAKO Surgical.
Interview Details – They started with one phone interview with the hiring manager. Typical single interview format though they had a group interview, where you present to 5 or so employees. I had to present why I was a good fit. Overall, they weren't all that difficult. The Sr. Product Manager hiring for the job was a bit tougher to predict and read.
Interview Question – Why do you want to work for a start-up? How did you prepare for this interview? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They send an offer with 48 hours to accept. I was unemployed at the time so I jumped on it.
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MAKO Surgical in July 2011.
Interview Details – very shady manager. would not put any compensation figures in writing. after speaking with 3 current sales people they said to "run" away from mako. This seemed a shame, given their technology. But better to know that info now, vs after accepting offer. Glad I turned this down. Also spoke with some physicians afterwards, and they were not impressed with their implants
