I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at ActivEngage in July 2013.
Interview Details –
I was given a call by a manager and he described the benefits of the position more than the job itself, like 100% insurance from day one, free gym membership, and in office morale events from cupcakes to free lunch and an on site masseuse. He then asked if I was interested and I said yes. He asked if I could do an interview with another manager in about 20 minutes via computer.
The second interview was online and I logged in to interview. I was asked questions that were pretty easy to answer and when she asked if I had any questions it seemed like she was being impatient, as if I shouldn't have had any questions. She then told me that she would let the first person know if they would move forward. I got a call about 20 minutes later asking if I could come in for testing and an interview. I said yes and he emailed me the tests "to practice" before taking them for real.
I showed up early and went to the suite and no one was there to greet me. I flagged down an employee and he took me to another suite where the manager I spoke to actually was. He was dressed in a sport jacket and jeans and sat me down at a computer where I logged into my email to complete the tests he sent me (one set of which I already finished, after being told they were practice tests). The second test was a personality and skills test. They were timed and one had about 30-40 math, reasoning, grammar questions but was 7 minutes long! I was timed out and had to flag someone down again to let the manager know I was finished since he disappeared. When I found him again he gave me a sheet of paper with two writing prompts and wanted me to answer the two questions and be as descriptive as possible and to "have fun with it". After I was finished I was told I passed and waited for the face to face interview.
The entire time I tested, there were people "working" in cubicles and offices by me. The employees are all young (under 30-35) and can pretty much say whatever they want in the workplace. They talked about who was ghetto and such, and two men in a side office near my computer were dropping f bombs constantly during a conversation. I mean, if you're going to have a vulgar convo, at least close the door.
I was interviewed by two other managers at the same time. They took turns asking questions and it was the basic lame HR procedure; "describe a time when...", "what are your strengths? Weaknesses?..." kind of questions where they stare at you and then take 5 minutes writing it down. They described the schedule. I didn't bring up pay but I know now that it wouldn't have been enough to live on ($10/hr) which is probably why they go on about the benefits and perks first and foremost. They told me that I would hear back on if I got the job by early the next week. Never did and didn't really care.

Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at ActivEngage in May 2013.
Interview Details – One interview that is completely uncomfortable. Then, invited for an open house which tells you about the company benefits and the job. Then, Tuesday through Friday of training. This company spends a ton of money on hiring, training, and retention. Claims 5% turnover, but it's likely much higher.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected. View Answer
Negotiation Details – There wasn't any.
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at ActivEngage in August 2012.
Interview Details – This company is very friendly in their hiring/interview process. They have you do a few tests like a lot of companies do. They sit you down with multiple people so that they can each discuss what they like best about you. They also provide interested applicants with an "Open House" day to get to know more about the company and the job before deciding they want to pursue it. Everyone starts in the same position and all moves up are made from people who start there.
Interview Question – There weren't really any difficult or unexpected questions- they really just want to understand who you are and what you want for your future. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There wasn't much of a "negotiation" just a "we like you, do you like us, we want to offer you a position" kind of thing. You either take it or don't.
I applied online and interviewed at ActivEngage.
Interview Details – Woman was rude on phone interview, went to face to face interview and its some small office with a lot of managers. Seemed kinda suspicious to me and interview with like 6 people at once. Not worth the $10 an hour. Don't quit your day job for this.
Interview Question – easy questions. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I asked them about moving up in the company and they never gave a direct answer. This place is real small so don't expect to gain a career out of it.This company can fall apart at any moment. This will be a good job for someone who is unemployed and needs a gig real bad and quit when they get back on their feet. Offers no overtime and expect you to work from home after your shift without getting paid.

Interview Details –
Well when I was hired, there was ecentraly two different interviews and both were held on the same day. There was a typing test and then the 1st interview and if it goes well the second.
However I noticed that things have changed and now it's just a typing test emailed to you and then just one interview.
Interview Question – When I was hired one question that took me off guard was the one on what do you like most about coming to work here. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Very relaxed, they were able to accommodate within reason.

Negotiation Details – Don't work for this company. The changes they are making are not positive for employees.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at ActivEngage.
Interview Details – I had an interview with a team leader with the most basic, generic interview questions that can be printed offline. A second interview with the then director, Carol Marshall. Then a third interview with another team leader, composed of more generic interview questions. After that the offer was placed and accepted. Training began right away (Unpaid).
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation possible, at the time. However, with the increase in business there could possibly be more room for future job prospects. There is no shortage of people who would be capable of filling this position, so if you are qualified for something much greater with in the company, there is no reason you shouldn't put it out there and see what happens. Don't waste your time discussing pay with any team leaders though, unless you have no other choice.
