I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at IBM (Tulsa, OK) in June 2015.
The process was great. Met wonderful people. I was applying for the job from which I was laid off. However, they all but offered me the job at the final interview with the hiring manager. I was told I was the perfect candidate and to expect an offer. After all, it was the job I had for 15 years. I heard nothing for nearly 2 weeks and I followed up with them. I was shocked when I was told they were going to keep looking for other candidates. I thanked the recruiter for her help. She assured me that she would be getting back to me with new opportunities, as I was a perfect rehire candidate, that my skills were extraordinary and that I had very good recommendations. It's been over a month and I have heard nothing.

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at IBM in April 2015.
The interview process was long and they were not in any rush-there was a total of 5 and no one person seemed to be able to make a decision. They said every one was on board to hire-then they asked for one more interview and then pulled back from hiring.
