The phone interview was roughly 30 min long. I was being asked many technical questions as well as my past experiences and current projects. The questions were highly technical but they mainly focused on C++. Overall the process was short and simple.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Volcano Corporation (San Diego, CA) in January 2010.
I was contacted by the HR Manager to verify my skills and qualifications.
I was then invited to meet with the Director and the VP of HR.
Both interviews went very well.
I was asked to give them a minimum of two weeks to make their decision about being invited back for a second interview.
I sent both a thank you letter, and the VP actually responded with indication that we would meet again.
After weeks, and no word from the company, I followed up with an email to both the Director and the VP.
I immediately received an email indicating that they would call me immediately.
The HR Director called me to apologize for not informing me that they move on with another candidate about a week prior. She indicated that she thought that she already communicated to me and that she did not realize that she had forgotten.
I find it difficult that employer expects candidates to be professional, yet they are so unprincipled

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Volcano Corporation (Sacramento, CA) in April 2009.
First met with hiring manager and the HR person.
then met at a later date, peers and direct report--about 8 people.
They all seemed to think that their work/products were much more sophisticated and challenging than comparable work in similar companies. A bit of an elitist attitude; an us against the world attitude
