    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Makerbot.

    Interview Details

    Thoughtful, but not as efficient as you'd have at a mature company. Lots of moving parts (people, times) & competition for the role means that there are delays. The process is thorough. Met a lot of people, as building culture is really important.

    Interview Questions
    • You're good, if you prepare. Nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Reasonable. You need to know what you want, and willing to be flexible on. MakerBot is reasonable.

    Applied online and got a phone call interview. Was expecting a technical phone interview, but was asked mostly availability and 3D printing expertise. Invited for an in-person interview. Talked to 5 engineers. Asked to describe previous projects. The whole process took about 2 weeks. Was offered another in-person interview with HR, but after a few days got offer letter instead.

    I applied online – interviewed at Makerbot.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview regarding a potential design position. The questions were vague and more on how I felt about management more so than specific questions on experience.

    HQ Office Position Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Makerbot.

    Interview Details

    Came in for a job fair this past spring 2013. I met with my prospective manager for the position. The interview was brief but pleasant. I got the feeling that the manager was really able and really wanted to learn a lot about me in the short amount of time.

    About a week later, I was called in for another interview with an executive of the company and it was a bit intimidating but that's to be expected. I met two other people after meeting the executive and all of the interviews were pleasant.

    The interview process was quite effective.

    Productor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Makerbot in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I responded to an advertisement placed on craiglist. I went to the interview and found that it consisted of a preliminary rote mechanical task (seemingly designed to assess an individual's ability to follow simple directions) and then a normal interview which was, and still is, however, conducted in a "cattle-call" manner in the sight, though not the hearing, of all the other applicants themselves. All of this takes place in the middle of the factory floor while production is going on.

    Interview Questions
    • The last question was, "What is your definition of teamwork?" My answer was about leadership specifically and not about teamwork at all -- and so I figured that I had then and there "sunk" the interview.   View Answer
