The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Revolution Prep (Boston, MA) in September 2009.
First I interviewed with the head of HR. She was very friendly, but did not address my resume. She mostly asked me what I knew about the position and what I liked about the company, and then answered my questions. I was surprised to get a phone call the next day from the VP of Sales asking for a follow-up interview. She was also very friendly, but similarly uninterested in my qualifications for the job. She e-mailed me the next day to tell me I didn't get the position.

The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Revolution Prep in January 2010.
Had initial interview with HR. The lady was friendly and asked basic prequal questions. Second interview with a regional director. Again, very friendly. Questions were typical, "tell me about a time when..." questions. Very scripted but the guy was nice and someone I would have liked to work for. After these, I was given a homework assignment. Yup, you read right! Spent lots of time researching the company and putting together the work. Had a third interview. This time with a VP. The guy was arrogant, he made comments like, "you got that question right out of an interview book, didn't you?". I wanted to reply that his questions weren't exactly original or ground breaking either, but I didn't because for some reason I actually liked the guy. Reminded me of myself I suppose.
Anyway, everything took about 3 weeks (over the holidays, so not totally their fault) and eventually I was not offered the job. I'm certain the reason I was not hired was due to something I listed on my resume and was honest about from the beginning. No, nothing bad at all. Anyway, I was disappointed because this seems like a great company. No hard feelings, even though this is the first place I interviewed with but didn't get hired... EVER. (Way to ruin a great record.) I do feel a little like they wasted my time, especially with the homework assignment. Seems like a lot of hoops to jump through.
Overall, I would say if you want to work for this company, be prepared to go through at least 4-5 interviews of basic, standard, scripted questions. And, don't get your hopes up. Of course, that's probably good advice for any interview situation. They won't really care to hear much about your previous jobs. In fact, had they asked, they would've learned I have C-level connections in school districts in almost every state; something that could have probably helped a lot.
Oh yeah, and don't prepare too much, or you might get made fun of for being prepared. Ha ha.
