I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at IBM in April 2009.

Interview Details – I had a friend who worked there and found the sales position through an internal job search engine. I had two interviews within the week. They offered me the job but then tried to to hard-ball me into taking the position because I was honest and told them that I had another interview within IBM. Guess they really liked me!
