I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Direct Technology in September 2009.
Interview Details – The first day I did a phone interview with one of the company recruiters. He then followed up later in the day with a more in-depth phone interview and scheduled face-to-face interviews for the next day. The second day I had 1-on-1 interviews with the Recruiter, then Project Manager, Sr QA, developer, BA QA, developer, Sr QA and finally the director. Each person focused on a different area i.e. testing philosophy, compatibilty, technical skills and ability to communicate. There was a voice mail job offer waiting for me when I got home.
