I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Handmark in June 2007.
Interview Details – I met with the QA Manager, Project Manager, and VP of Development. All were extremely nice, and very accommodating. Each person that interviewed me talked very a little about the job, what to expect, a small company, etc...they kept it on a personal level. I was a bit skeptical at first, but as the interview went on it seemed to good to be true, almost like a scam. The company atmosphere was very laid back, no dress code, everyone was friendly.
