I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Coraid (Redwood City, CA) in June 2012.
The interview process at Coraid was seamless, quick, and painless while still being thorough. After applying online, I quickly received an email to set up a phone interview with the hiring manager and other EA. Phone interview was basic, relevant, and conversational with a few standout questions and a lot of good vibes. This was followed by two onsite interviews on separate days that lasted 2.5 & 3 hours, final interview with the CEO. Understandable, as an EA it's important to meet direct reports and other key employees to make sure it's really a great fit. Each interviewer was different: traditional, conversational, quirky, direct, etc but there wasn't a huge amount of overlap in the questions asked. There were a lot of personality questions with the basic "how would you react to this/solve this" line of questioning. The people here are very nice and happy. A great, refreshing find. We did have to move conference rooms during each onsite session but I was never once left alone in the room for more than a few seconds. An overall positive experience.
I didn't negotiate. I given an offer in line with what I wanted.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Coraid (Redwood City, CA) in April 2010.
Had initial phone call with recruiter and then VP of BD. From there I had an interview at the companies offices with the VP of BD, VP of Sales and CEO. Questions were on topic and thoughtful. They needed someone with my exact skill set - so my responses were natural and came easy. Was nervous at the beginning but soon relaxed. Obvious this is a good group of people who are smart and friendly. If you're confident in the position your interviewing for and qualified you should have no trouble.
