Interview Details – Initial communications with the company were brief prior to the interview, and entirely by email. The interview was behavioral in nature with few questions of technical knowledge. The interviewer seemed uncomfortable with the entire process, and was from a different office. There was a follow up conversation by phone, and then an offer by email with a follow up call again.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Efficient Frontier in December 2007.

Interview Details – An initial phone screening followed by an on-site interview with four individuals of various levels. I sent thank you notes following the interviews, which they responded to. They ended up giving the job to someone with more direct experience with direct marketing (I only had one internship experience). It took them a little more than a week to get back to me with the response.
