I interviewed at Marketo in March 2010.
Interview Details – This was the initial screening call but, for some reason, it was directly with the hiring manager himself. He had a very high energy, no-nonsense approach. Very quickly, it became clear that I was not a good fit. They seemed to want someone with heavy marketing operations/analytics background, rather than primarily sales engineering background. Wonder if the process would be different now that they are a larger company?
Interview Question – Many specific questions to demonstrate knowledge of marketing automation processes and technology. Comparatively less on the sales process side. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Marketo in October 2013.
Interview Details – Phone interview with recruiter, this consisted of the standard character, interest, experience, qualification questions to see if you are qualified, show enough interest and at a high level appear to be a cultural fit. It's been three months since my phone screen. While the recruiter was a professional and seemed to indicate that I would be moving forward to the next stage in the process, I had not yet heard either way from the Company as to a positive or negative outcome. Seems to follow a trend of what other users are saying about the Company.
Interview Question – No explicitly difficult questions. Always should be prepared to state why you want to work for a particular company. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Marketo in March 2013.
Interview Details – Loved every aspect of this company. They are high energy and you feel it with every touch point. The interview process is very thorough and well-explained before you arrive. You know exactly whom you will be meeting with and their influence in the hiring decision.
Interview Question – How would you handle the situation where someone took credit for your idea? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Marketo in July 2013.
Interview Details – Initial phone call with a recruiter, who then followed 5 days later to schedule an on-site interview. On-site interview was scheduled for half a day after lunch, after arriving on time I had to wait in the lobby for a while for a receptionist or anyone else to come by. Some of the people scheduled to interview were late, one didn't even show up. Awkward timing and flow of the on-site. After the on-site, the recruiter said he'd follow up in a week but did not and did not respond to my email.
Interview Question – They use PowerPoint for their wireframes, so if that's something you want to do as a UX professional, Marketo is a good place. Answer Question
I applied online - interviewed at Marketo in June 2013.
Interview Details – I had a phone interview with the hiring manager and then an in-house interview with the team. Generally speaking they were friendly and the questions were challenging. I also felt like they each had a good level of passion for what they did and pride in their product. However, a couple of things rubbed me the wrong way. First, one gentleman was on his laptop chatting while interviewing me. I was sure he wasn't just taking interview notes because he would smile and giggle while looking at his screen. Second, I'm not surprised anymore when I have a phone interview and never hear back. But if I come into the office for a half day of interviews, it would be nice to at the very least pull the trigger on a generic email letting me know they've moved on to other candidates. I tried following up a couple times but never received a response. Unfortunately that all left me with a very poor impression of their product team and general professionalism.

I applied online and interviewed at Marketo.
Interview Details – First contacted through email to set up a phone interview. Second interview was an in person interview.
Interview Question – Very strange interview process-included questions that were more like puzzles. If you google "prisoner hats puzzle" you will be able to see the types of questions that were asked. It was the strangest interview since it really didn't have to do with the software or customer service. Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Marketo.
Interview Details – Was contacted by a headhunter regarding the position, and based on the salary, thought it would be worth while to interview. Was brought in for the first round, which consisted of an interview with the hiring manager. The second round consisted of talking to the hiring manager's supervisor and a peer. All of this (round one and two) took place within 3 days, and I had an offer the following week. The final title was an upgrade from what was being advertised, and compensation was in line with what was being advertised by the headhunter.
Interview Question – What didn't I like the most about my last job. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Fairly easy, as the compensation package that was being advertised was market/above market for the role.
