I applied online and interviewed at AOL.

Interview Question – too much behavior questions Answer Question
The process took 1+ week - interviewed at AOL in March 2011.
Interview Details – I had applied online through the company website. After a couple of weeks I had a telephonic interview followed by a 1:1 interview at their office. They verbally offered me the position the next day which I accepted. Although it did take much time for them to send the official offer letter.
Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate the joining date and the duration of the internship, although I didn't have much say on the salary as it was intern position and the company had strict policies regarding salaries.
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AOL in September 2013.
Interview Details – Contacted by recruiting team. A practical Java test followed by a 30 min tech screening. Then I was invited to a 4 hour Skype call, which includes another round of online Java/SQL/Web test, 1:2 tech interview, cultural ambassador from HR and manager interview. Technically not challenging, I think I hit most of the answers. Only after 2 days I was told all tech tests/interviews are good but I fail to provide specific example in some of the behavioural questions, thus not good enough for this role. The HR team is actually very good. Very nice and efficient in coordinating the interviews/tests, even gave me a call back explaining everything in the end. The interviewers of technical round are very friendly, good communication, nice to talk to, detailed answer to my questions. But cultural ambassador and manager interview is tougher, 2 solid hours of behavioural questions, duplicated questions, no project experience asked, no response or feedback, no smile on their face. All leads me to believe that managers are not particularly looking for someone with good technical skills and project experience.
Interview Question – Just be prepared and careful with your answer for all the behavioural questions. Answer Question

Interview Details – Telephonic technical interview held by a nice, friendly person.
All basic questions were asked just to confirm whether you hold a relevant experience & knowledge.
All the questions were basic & simple. But HR/Recruitment team didn't respond back about my feedback/status although I gave all the answers in technical round. Interviewee should be informed about their status.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AOL in January 2013.
Interview Details – I had a chance to be interviewed by AOL Dublin. The entire interview process took around 2 weeks. After submitting application, hiring coordinator contacted me for the purpose of establishing contact and getting clue if I am still considering the job application.
The interview started with on-line coding test consisted of two easy tasks. That is followed by phone interview lasted around 1 hour. Interviewers were quite polite, supportive and friendly asking good questions on Java syntax, collections, threads, and web services. They made me feeling very comfortable answering each question, so I had no issues related.
After that, I should have been participated in Cultural Assessment interview, but, since I made some mistakes and did not solve any problems in JSP section I did not pass 1:1 interview. So, I have not been proposed an offer. Hiring manager contacted me 2 days after 1:1 interview and politely explained me the intentions and assessment measurements taken by engineering team to make decision on my profile. That was really good sign for the international company having hundreds of applicants on a monthly basis and spending their time for each new applicant. So, AOL got really good internal corporate culture.
Interview Question – The questions were more or less reasonable and logically sequential. There were no surprises or out of topic discussions, so if you are applying for Java software engineer position, prepare for Java related questions. Answer Question

Interview Details – Initial face2face interview on past experience and skills. A practical test followed.
The process took 2 days - interviewed at AOL in July 2010.
Interview Details – Interview not technically very difficult. Enough questions to figure out if you were a bluffer or not, but nothing really out of the ordinary. Tecnical portion of the interview was good. HR and "cultural assesment" was ridiculuos and in my view a total waste of time.
Reason for Declining – The cultural assesment kind of turned my stomach a bit. This may have been the whole point of the thing. Money offered wasn't very competitive either.
