I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Folio3 in February 2012.
Interview Details – There were two stages of interview. Phase One consisted of a Technical Interview in which basics of Databases, Algorithm Design, and Object Oriented Programming were asked. The interviewers were current employees at the company and thus focused mostly on the technologies in use at the company.

Folio3 offers lots of opportunities of growth to employees. Make sure you're brushed up on algorithms!! Sorting Algos, Tree Traversal, Hashing etc.
