I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Eventbrite.
Interview Details – I was contacted by the recruiter for an on-site interview. Had 3 1 on 1 interviews during the first round. It was pretty informal and a lot of the questions surrounded my previous work experience.
The second round was four 15-minute sessions with different members of the greater team. It was more of just getting to know everyone and their backgrounds. A lot of the questions were about your decision to apply for this position in general and why you chose Eventbrite. Also, they asked what you'd like to learn throughout the summer and like to talk about their culture and growth.
The interviewers were all very bright and are very specialized in their positions. Generally, it was a very nice experience and shows how quickly the company is growing.

Interview Details – I applied online and it took about 2 weeks for them to get back to me about a phone screen. I spoke with a lady in HR and she was impressed so I a 2nd round interview with other members of the HR team- each 30 mins long.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Eventbrite in April 2013.
Interview Details – From first contact everyone was really warm and embracing, the process was much faster than on similar bay area companies. My first step was a phone conversation with the recruiter, then came a phone screen with the hiring manager. It was quite technical and fast paced, but I did well. After the phone screen the hiring manager sent me a coding homework that I was expected to solve and send back within a few days
After submitting the homework I had a full afternoon of Skype interviews with 4 different members of the team and the VP of Engineering. It gave me a great opportunity to get a sense of the people I would be working with and the challenges they were tackling.
Then they flew me to San Francisco for a final round of interviews. I had lunch at the HQ with the people I met through Skype and then had 4 more interviews, the last two were with the President and the CEO.
Thoughtout the process the recruiter was really responsive and I knew where I stood every step of the way.

Interview Details – Very unstructured and mediocre interview. The interviewer who was screening me for the position didn't seem very experienced. He talked for 20 mins, asked me a couple of questions and that was the end of it. Later on the recruiter got back to me saying I was not fit for this position, which is odd since I hardly got to say anything.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Eventbrite.
Interview Details – Applied through an internal referral. The internal referral was extremely nice and did my initial phone screen. Within a week, HR reached out to me for a copy of my resume and I was scheduled to speak with the Hiring Manager.
Hiring Manager was disengaged from the beginning of the interview. After the first question: "Why are you interested in this role and why are you a good fit?" the Hiring Manager asked if I had any questions? After that question, our conversation turned into "let's continue this discussion till the 30 minute mark hit."
Interview Question – None - because the hiring manager was so disengaged. Answer Question

Interview Details – Interviewed with the VP Engineering and the hiring manager, then came in for an onsite a few days later. Interviewed with three engineers and the president onsite. Favorite part of the onsite interview was the lunch interview. It wasn't a 1:1 - instead several teammembers and I gathered in a conference room and discussed work they were doing. Never had the chance to observe genuine team interactions during an interview so this was a big plus. Feedback was lighting fast - later that afternoon I was asked back for a beer.
