I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EMD Millipore (Danvers, MA) in December 2014.
Group info session. There was no individual interview, but every candidate had to submit a questionnaire. We were told about the job reqs, who the company was and what they made and what type of work we would be doing. We were given expectations: be on time and call out policy.

I was contacted through a recruiter. Basic Questions. Nothing tricky or thought provoking. I am pretty sure that they already had an internal candidate to fill the position before I even arrived; which is annoying because I wasted my time. People were nice and polite.

Got call from 3rd party recruiter regarding this position (1yr contract). Gave them permission to submit my resume and got called in for an interview a week later. Went in to interview with the team lead and her manager. Was then offered the position the very next day!

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at EMD Millipore (Jaffrey, NH).
It was only a few minutes after the agreed upon time, and the interviewer was very polite and professional. I was virtually being offered the job then, but was told that I'd get a call, which came across as more of a formality than anything, and I felt that my chances were pretty good. I did not receive one, however, and I was surprised to find that my emails went unanswered for long periods of time, and with very cryptic responses. I think the person in charge of hiring is simply overworked, as she made casually mentioned the fact that she is responsible for scores of individuals, but as someone seeking gainful employment, it's annoying to not be told whether or not I will hired in a relatively short amount of time.
