Senior Technical Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3+ months - interviewed at EMC.
Interview Details – The overall process is usually 3 to 6 months. Best way to get hired is to already know someone who works there or be a good customer. The pay is usually pretty good but the pressure can be intense for long periods of time. Average work week was about 60 hours and there was a lot of travel! Typically you will be asked how you feel about travel and working a few extra hours.
Interview Question – Describe a time when you have had to diffuse a potentially volatile situation in the work place. Describe how you diffused an angry customer. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was pretty much told what they were willing to pay and to take it or leave it.

Overall, of any interview I've ever been involved with, this the most in-depth from a background perspective.
My online activity for blogging, twitter and various commenting on sites was brought up. Something as recent as I posted on a site the night before, was a discussion point in the interview the following morning. I was extremely impressed with their HR.
Interview Question – What do you think of product X for market Y. Can it be improved? Would you scrap it? Would you merge it with another?, if so - which? View Answer
Negotiation Details – I was very happy with the offer, negotiation wasn't necessary - as they simply doubled my previous salary.
