I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at innoPath in May 2011.
Interview Details – Spoke with recruiter first via telephone. This was followed up with SME telephone interview. Thereafter I was brought in on two seperate ocassions for a combination of 1:1 interviews & group interview sessions. The most challenging interviews were with the hiring VP and the CEO. The CEO (to date) interviews all perspective candidates.
Negotiation Details – I was very honest up front with the first recruiter telephone call. After finalize the interviews HR revisited the question and I answered with consistency relative to the first amount I gave them. I had to be flexible and they were honest with that up front.
Advice - be honest and don't beat around the bush.
The process took 1 week - interviewed at innoPath in November 2009.
Interview Details – Initial phone interview went well and was brought in for 1:1 interview with 4 other Engineers.
Negotiation Details – Very little wiggle room
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at innoPath in August 2010.
Interview Details – in phone interview, director asked questions on issues in designing large scale high volume systems.
In on-site interview it was 6 people including VP of engineering. They asked questions varying from web services to hibernate to logical to hardest challenges faced/solved.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at innoPath in March 2010.
Interview Details – InnoPath seems to follow the pattern of sequential gatekeepers, i.e. the next-higher person will be "in a meeting" if you haven't passed the current level successfully. On the other hand, the process isn't reaally as organized as it might be, and the next person may actually be unavailable--in which a return visit will be needed. There's more emphasis on being able to understand and explain ideas and decision processes than on proving that your experience is identical to the "ideal candidate" profile someone has envisioned, and "overqualified" won't be a problem. Do expect the initial interview to contain some tough technical questions, but don't expect that you should be able to answer all of them authoritatively.
