Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Avocent in June 2010.
Interview Details – Set up a phone interview through email. Took about 2 days between email and phone interview. More informal technical questions with the main concern being domain design.

Administrative Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Avocent in November 2010.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a headhunter and given the interview. I arrived and interviewed with one person and was asked the typical questions. I did not have to go in for a second interview but was offered the position through the agency. The salary they offered was too low and so I declined when they came back with a higher offer I accepted. It took a while for all of this to happen though.
