I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Groupon in May 2014.

Interview Details – Wise questions and well answers. Until last interview the feedback was good from the recruitment manager. Suddenly they send you email after a week that you couldn't qualified the criteria.

Criteria is something that is set before the position is published not after the 6th Interview.

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Groupon in April 2011.

Interview Details – The recruiter found me from the Linkedin Connection, and I talked to a senior recruiter through the phone. He asked what is my expectation for the next position, and he would try to find a match with it. He is a very nice, professional guy, and walked through every single detail from beginning to the end of the whole interview/hiring process.
Two days later, I had another phone interview with project lead, then onsite interviews.

Negotiation Details – I am happy with the offer, so no negotiate.
