I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Broadcom (Richmond, BC (Canada)) in May 2012.
First I was asked about my experience, complicate tasks I had to solve and methods of solving. So basically it was a conversation of two engineers: ways of solve this or that issues. After 1 hour of 1:1 conversation another engineer came. That was a skill test. Basic questions regarding embedded software development, locks, interrupts, priority inversion, ARM assembler semaphore operations; issues with multi-CPU systems.
I got more than expected, so I did not negotiate though it is possible as my future experience shows

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Broadcom (Richmond, BC (Canada)) in August 2010.
I was interviewed with 3 different teams. All of them had at least 3 levels.I was stringed along for more than 60 days.For the second interview, my reference checks were done and I was told that I am getting an offer. Then for a week I was told that the manger is travelling and I will get an offer once he is back. Then finally it was like the manager changed his mind and is now looking for some other specific skill!
They again put me through another team, one of the interviews where done by a person probably of staff/senior level. This guy was very mean and started the interview with making fun of me for not getting through the previous interviews. He was laughing at me through out the interview and did not really agree to any of my answers.
Finally Broadcom decided that I do not have enough linux skills.
Little bit background on myself.
I have 10 years experiences in C, linux.
In my current job I have 2 best performer awards and two promotions in last 2 years.
