I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Esri.
Interview Details – Three phone interviews: First with HR, then with manager, and last with employee in same position. After that an all day on-site interview with various people on the team and the director of the department. Although the interviews went on all day, they weren't grueling. It was easy to see who'd been collaborating with whom because the same themes came up in different interviews.

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Esri.
Interview Details – I interviewed with nine different people over the course of one long day. (This was preceded by two separate phone interviews over the course of several days.) None of the interviews were exactly tough, in fact all were fairly pleasant. But the schedule was grueling. By the last three or four, I had a hard-time keeping straight if I was repeating myself to the person in front of me. I felt pretty good about the interviews, which they referred to as "round one." I waited a month before learning that they were not going to bring me back for the final round of four or five additional interviews.
Interview Question –

**"What good enough? 100 percent? 150 percent? 10 percent? When do you stop and call it good enough?"
** "Is it more important to be interesting or interested?" View Answer
The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Esri in July 2012.
Interview Details – The man called me and we spoke for almost 2 hours. The interview was supposed to last for 1 hour, so I felt pretty confident about landing a second interview. I was told that the man enjoyed our conversation so I expect to hear back from them. However, it has been over a month since the interview and I have received no word back. I still feel confident about the interview, and I am aware of the long and drawn out interview process that Esri employs. I honestly did expect to be contacted by now, but perhaps I still will land the second interview. I guess all I can say is even if you feel you have a very solid interview you may not be contacted for a long time...
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Esri in March 2012.
Interview Details – Had three interviews. Each repeated the same thing over and over (emphasizing on flat organization, campus of 2000 people, and that they're a software company). If it was a flat organization, why did I interview with five levels of management? Because I interviewed with them separately, I had to repeat my background over and over. Also, HR kept asking me how many people work at my current job because she wanted ESRI to sound superior (???) with 2000 employees at that location.
