    Interviewed onsite and had a great talking with two lead engineers. Took me about 45 min each including technical questions (algorithms in C).
    Then talked with hiring manager at a last.

    I applied online – interviewed at EFI.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview where I was asked a series of standard questions. This was a friendly and pleasant experience. It was without any oddball questions and very professional. Following that I was invited in to interview with a company director and then a vice president, all in about an hour. Both interviews were friendly and professional. The vice president was mostly concerned with how I would fit into the organization, which is lean and follows a matrix structure. The director was concerned primarily with how I would manage interdisciplinary teams to solve complex technical problems through discovering innovative solutions. One week following that interview I contacted the director who very kindly and supportively informed me that the position required someone with a more technical background, but that they would keep me in mind for more suitable positions in the future. On the whole it was a very pleasant experience, despite it being unsuccessful in terms of landing that particular position.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at EFI (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I had several telephone interviews which resulted in the company flying me to Pittsburgh for four additional face-to-face interviews. I had already known several of the people with whom I interviewed. The entire process went very well. I was advised that when in their office they wanted to see how I interacted with current staff that and new hires wo I would be working with. Prior to my visit I was informed of the entire benefits package (410k, stock options, health insurance, etc.), and combined with the interviews I felt very good about getting an offer. Everything went well, even people telling me that they couldn't wait until I started working there. While I was there we ran out of time and was not able to meet with the HR director, so I was advised that a telephone interview would be arranged the following week. I never heard from them again. They never even called to advise me that I was not selected for the position. I was left hanging without any explanation.
