I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks – interviewed at VMC Consulting (Redmond, WA) in June 2011.
What a waste of time. You can learn a lot about a company by the way they interview and I certainly got my fill from VMC. I was initially contacted by a recruiter but already had a job. The recruiter and the person I would have been reporting to both spoke to me over the phone and convinced me to come in. They spoke about high pay, great visibility, excellent opportunity to grow my skills, yadda yadda. In total I had 7 separate interviews. SEVEN! Each requiring time off and a drive in. I exchanged 65 emails with them, drove a total of 500 miles round trip, delivered presentations, white papers, blog articles, and copies of press interviews. Every one of them loved me. I got nothing but accolades during each round. The interview with the COO went great and then..... nothing. For 5 weeks I didn't hear a thing. And when they finally responded it was to ask if I'd take $25,000 LESS than we'd discussed. (Salary conversations came up and were confirmed four different times). I told them that would make things very difficult and have never heard back. WTF, VMC? You guys came to me! And then completely disappear. It's the height of disrespect. If this is how they treat people in the beginning I can only imagine what it's like after you're on the payroll. Your barriers chase away all the top talent and ultimately create competition in people who know they can do it better elsewhere. That's where I'll be. With someone else taking business from you.

I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at VMC Consulting in December 2009.
First the application was sent online. There was an automated e-mail response that asked to fill out a list of screening questions in an Excel document. After filling out the document, it was then sent back to the employer. The next day the employer called, made a few comments on the screening, and then asked which method of commuting would be used. After responding, an orientation was scheduled. At the orientation, the employer discussed the rules of the company and then explained other relevant topics.
