I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Arista (New York, NY) in February 2015.
We used Google doc as a shared platform to show my results during the phone interview. The interviewer is nice and explain her questions clearly. Interviewer asked me an algorithm problem and let me implement it in two methods. Then based on this algorithm problem, she asked some OS questions and basic Java knowledge. Finally she gave me a chance to ask some things.

First, talk about yourself. And then go review your education and experiences on the resume, like causal conversation, finally take a test about accounting knowledge, ex: make adjusting, closing entries, and financial statement. I guess the test is not easy, it takes 2 hours to do. Kinda very good practice for your accounting knowledge.
