I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at EqualLogic in October 2011.
Interview Details –
The process started with a phone interview. Although I didn't feel a personal connection to the interviewer, the interview went well enough that I was invited for an on-site interview.
The on-site interview lasted half a day and involved roughly half a dozen one-on-one interviews. The interview questions focused primarily on .NET, object-oriented design, and little bit about SQL. Three of the interviews were enjoyable, and two were more or less bearable.
The engineers clearly enjoyed the work environment, and I sensed that they were engaged in the work but not excited. The rapid growth of the company means it would be a good fit for career programmers who want to work with competent colleagues, and also for people who want to climb a management career ladder. Those who are looking for either the thrill of a startup or the comfort of an established company may want to look elsewhere.
Ultimately the experience was disappointing. Despite an explicit assurance that I would hear back in a few days, there was no follow-up at all. Even if I'd received a roborejection mail or a curt phone call within a week or two I would've rated the interview experience as positive and might have recommended that a friend or colleague apply. The lack of a response from HR soured the experience.
