Software Engineer II Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Apollo Education Group in July 2011.
Interview Details – Phone Screen, Face to face, followed by a Skype interview.
The hiring teams asked basic Java knowledge questions
The Phone interview was an initial screen asking "tricky" questions from general knowledge out the SCJP exam (this is an individual team member)
Then came a face to face with the hiring team. Two senior developers and one manager.
This team thought I wasn't a perfect fit for them, but referred me to another team with which I had a Skype interview. i was hired by that team.
I recommend anyone going for a Java interview these days - understand your collections package and you should be good to go. (This comes more out of my overall hiring process last go-around, not just from Apollo group.)

Software Engineer II Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 2 days - interviewed at Apollo Education Group in November 2010.
Interview Details – I got this call through a consultant. The initial phone screen was purely technical on Java concepts, some questions on servlets. Then i was called onsite for a day long interview process. It consisted of 5 interviews. The last one was with a HR and consisted of behavioral questions to find out if i were a good cultural fit for the team they were hiring. My first 4 interviews went very well, so i was pretty confident by the end.
