I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Salesforce.com.
Interview Details – Initially a telephonic round.
Then 2 hour programming test online which is a small project.
Then in person interview at SFO branch. (For about 5-6 hours)
Then they told me that the team liked me but they felt I would be a better fit to another team based on my background. Then I was asked to take another in person interview with the other team. This is the time I was fed up with the process. But the recruiter said chances are high to get hired and I said myself, it's OK another 2.5 to 3 hours and you put in already a horrible 9 hours already into it.
Then the bad news. Either team didn't feel I was up to the mark.
May be I was. However, it was the worst way and point of time to know that. I would have preferred to know it beforehand than later. But pushing the people up to the point where they get exhausted and lose interest is not the best way of interviewing, I feel.
Interviewing for 11 hours is insane I feel. If you are putting that much of time to find out the quality of a person, it suggests that may be you are not the right person to conduct the interview. Anyways no offense taken but felt like not interviewing with that company again anytime in future.
