I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Huge in March 2013.
Interview Details – The hiring and interview process was quick and painless. They spend a LOT of time looking to fill positions, but when they've found someone they really like, they're quick about it.
Interview Question – I didn't find any of the questions unexpected. And they weren't difficult in the sense that they were tricky. They were really good questions-- it was a very transparent and straightforward process, which I found refreshing. I took them through my portfolio. They asked me some questions about my experience. They asked why I wanted to leave my (then) current agency. Then they asked how much money I wanted. Finally, they gave me an offer. View Answer
Negotiation Details – They low-balled me. Their head recruiter is a tough negotiator. And she's not exactly warm and fuzzy.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Huge.
Interview Details – I applied via the website and received a message from recruiting about a week afterwards. I had a brief phone interview with them and then waited around 1.5 weeks to hear back from them. At that point, they request a portfolio of my work. After a few days, I was contacted to come in for an in person interview. It took around 1.5 hours and was conducted by the two heads of the content strategy team. It was difficult to get a true feel for what they were looking for since the questions didn't have any obvious connection to the job. Rather they seemed more interested in learning about my work experiences with my current employer. Given the lack of direct cross over between the two positions I can see why they wanted to get some more information on my work, but feel as if I should have been asked more questions about potential job scenarios. Ultimately, they went with someone who had more direct experience than me.
Interview Question – None. The questions were all pretty generic and focused on getting to know me more than how I would deal with any challenges on the job. Answer Question

Very Difficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Huge in June 2013.
Interview Details – Contacted a few times by a recruiter via LinkedIn. Initially not interested but then decided to have a brief discussion. Recruiter was excited and said that the office realized that they needed to build this discipline and that I have a very impressive résumé. I was a candidate they couldn't afford to pass up.
Had one phone call followed by an in-person interview with 4 people. Only met with 3.
First interviewer was too new to the agency to ask any relevant questions. Knew nothing about me prior to our meeting. Second interviewer had done a cursory review of my résumé and spoke more about how they wanted to grow the business. However, she seemed very encouraging and was excited about my diverse skill set. The third interviewer was the worst. Not only had he read my résumé but dissected every sentence. He was abrasive, rude and condescending. He was even upset that I had completed my MBA in less time than him! It was a brutal, off-topic experience that continued longer than expected. I eventually ended the discussion because I was no longer interested. I was glad to hear that the fourth interviewer was tied up in a meeting and unsure when she'd be free.
I was not prepped properly by the recruiter prior to the interview. Although I prepared for a formal interview, I was told it would be very casual; that they just wanted to get to know me. That was not the case and the interview was all over the place. After the interview, I literally felt as if I had been badly beaten in a brawl. The negative press I had read prior to the interview was right.
Interview Question – Less Q&A, more of a "attack-like" discussion. I only remember the standard, "tell me about a project you're proud of and why." They didn't seem to care anyway. Answer Question

Interview Details – I applied online, had a phone interview with HR, and only met with the head of design once before receiving an offer. Then there was a long battle with HR on salary. I think the process is different now, with more steps in between, and meeting with multiple staff members.
Interview Question – I didn't have a difficult or unexpected question. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Long negotiation. Fight hard and prepare to walk, HR is brutal.
