I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Eid Passport.Interview Details
Applied through a recruiter. Contacted one week later by Software Engineer at Eid. Phone screen was pleasant but completely non-technical. Was Invited to an on-site interview one week later.
Interview was 5 five hours long. Standard shot-gun style team after team interview. Most of the folks were kind and professional but some were clearly there to intimidate and ask ridiculous questions.
Be prepared to be handed a laptop and solve problems on a big screen in front of the group. This is a horrible way to interview developers, sad that this still happens.
Had lunch with the Manager of the group afterwards, though he continued to drill me on my skill set. The group had decided that I was not a good fit already so it seems kind of pointless to take a candidate out to lunch and continue to drill them when they have already been weeded out.
Eid seems to be a fair place to work but the rapid growth has caused a lot of Engineering headaches as new tech is introduced to a lot of legacy applications. They are looking for a silver bullet developer to come in and fix everything. I wish them best of luck with that.Interview Questions

I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at Eid Passport in June 2014.Interview Details
I applied through company website and they contacted me for an in person interview within a week.
The interview was done by two leads for the department. One asked a majority of the questions while the other typed. They made sure I understood that this was a high volume call center position. They were nice, but the questions were all read from a list and very little deviation from the list of questions. It appeared that they were on a strict time schedule for more interviews. The questions were not too hard, basic customer service questions. I was offered a job the same day after the interview.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Eid Passport in May 2012.Interview Details
My first interview was third week in May. Met with someone who would supposedly be my boss. Interview lasted for nearly two hours. Went back a week later for two more interviews. Found out I'm the top candidate. Then...radio silence. They are in the process of moving headquarters, so things are in flux now. But c'mon. It's been a month. Are you serious or not? This company seems to have trouble making decisions. Could be a potential red flag.Interview Questions
