Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Softchoice.
Interview Details – I went through nine different interviews. Most were phone based, although three of them were on the same day back to back to back in the office. The in-person interviews were with people that had little to no interaction with the position for which I was applying. Each interview started with the question "what is your understanding of the position?" Each time, my understanding of the position was confirmed, although after accepting the position I found out that the position was 180 degrees different than what I had understood. The recruiting person was not very responsive or thorough with her follow up. Several times she would miss calling me at the appointed times to give me a status update, and my calls and emails went unanswered.
Interview Question – The most difficult question was one that I asked them. All I wanted to know was my status. The interview process lasted more than a month, and I had a very difficult time getting any kind of response. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was able to choose between two different offers. One of them was more base-salary heavy with less of a bonus potential, while the other had a higher bonus potential with a lower base.

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Softchoice.
Interview Details – Typical interview process with 3 plus interviews with various managers and team leads. There was also an online test that was utilized in the hiring decisions. The location was great, people were friendly, however, had the impression of the office being a "boys club" and not very diversified. 1st manager was very straight forward, almost seemed a little rude.
Reason for Declining – I got the feeling that promotions were very difficult to achieve as it is a smaller company. Seems extremely stagnant. Also received another offer with a higher base. (SC offered an extremely low base, especially since you are only making that amount during training).
The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Softchoice in January 2010.
