    Manufacturing Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed 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 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.

    Interview Questions
    • "What was your specific role in [subject presented during group interview]"

      Many applicant's seem to have a hard time explaining the difference between what their team did and what they did on a group project.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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
