    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.

    Negotiation

    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.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at innoPath (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    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.
