The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at DAI (Redmond, WA) in December 2010.

Interview Details – First had a phone interview with an HR recruiter. Was told at the end of the interview that I was being passed on to the next round.

Came in for several hours to do a...
panel interview with three of the position's supervisors
panel interview with five of the position's peers
2 hour skills test: proofreading, budgeting in Excel, and writing.

Called a week later to come meet with a Senior VP. It was more of a meet and greet than an interview.

Asked to fill out paperwork and provide references. References were emailed a form of questions to fill out about the candidate.
