I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Coat Systems (Draper, UT) in February 2014.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Coat Systems in July 2013.

    Interview

    Boxborough, MA location, applied last year. Applied as a referral. Hiring manager called and did a phone screen. One on-site interview. Fairly easy interview, one networking technical question. The main thing is that the interviewers wanted to make sure I understood the position and the challenges. After the single round of interviews (~5 people), ended up playing telephone/email tag for ~2 weeks until I found out that they were unable to match the compensation I requested.
