I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Apollo Interactive (El Segundo, CA) in October 2012.
Initially there was a short phone interview. I then met with 3 people - the Account Manager, Group Account Director and Account Executive.
They were all very good to get a long with and asked the typical interview questions. After the onsite interview I was asked to do an Excel Proficiency test, I studied a lot and passed with flying colors. Then 3 weeks later I got an offer and accepted.

They are pretty flexible, after being through a few hiring processes.

The process took 2 days – interviewed at Apollo Interactive (Culver City, CA) in October 2010.
I got this interview through a technical recruiting company. The first interview consisted of me taking an hour long test that asked me various questions on PHP and SQL. I thought the test was fair. It asked about basic OOP concepts, wrote one SQL query using joins, group by, and having, and it also asked about cURL and web services. I was familiar with this stuff so I thought it was fair. The 2nd interview was also in person and asked about my interest in web technologies and asked a few technical questions. The guys seemed cool.
I dont think i was able to negotiate. The offer was a 3 year structured plan with bonuses. Decent offer, and I accepted. However, the day before I was going to start, I got a call from my technical recruiter saying that Apollo Interactive could not hire me anymore because the company lost a contract. This was literally the day before, after I told the interviewers that i would need to give a 2 weeks notice to my current job. My technical recruiter told me to cancel any other interviews I had pending at the time I had accepted the job offer. Luckily I didn't listen to him completely and I still did one interview and got an offer. So for those of you going to interview at Apollo Interactive, make sure you have backup interviews planned, since I don't think the company is as stable as it seems. Apparently they only had enough work to hire me for one contract, which never came through, yet the position i was supposed to be hired for was a Full Time with benefits package. Not too good of planning on their part.
