Interview Details –
The interview process was very straightforward and simple. I was referred to the position through a contracting firm, and shortly after communicating my interest, I was scheduled for a phone screen with a hiring manager.
The phone screen lasted no more than 30 minutes and was evenly split between technical/business questions being asked of me, and my turn to ask questions of the interviewer. It was over before I knew it, but I came away feeling confident. Within 24 hours I had learned that I was invited for an in-person interview
The in-person interview was easy to schedule around my needs, and It was split into parts based on an interview with "customers" (aka a development manager and a software developer), a segment with my future boss, and a short and cordial discussion with his superior. The technical phase with the development customers was challenging, but appropriate for the position. The phase with the future boss was clearly intended to divine my problem solving aptitude and approach. The final phase with his superior seemed to be a checkpoint for approval of the hire (me), and not something I'd expect to see happen every time.
Within another 24 hours, I was told that I would be receiving an offer.
Interview Question – What do you do for fun? View Answer
Negotiation Details – The negotiation phase was very easy for me as I was going through a contractor and I had a fallback plan of current employment. Like most companies, there is at least some room to maneuver on the contractual portion. Be reasonable and you'll probably get what you're looking for.

Interview Details – Initial phone interview with HR, followed by 2 more phone interviews, then face-to-face individual interviews with 12 managers, followed by phone interview with VP. Interviews were basic questions, went well over all. VP just introduced himself, idle chit chat, gave me the "thumbs up" and stated HR would work out the details. From beginning to end took at least 8 weeks. Had to send college transcripts, criminal and financial background check was also done. Considering I was not offered the job, this ended up being a very long, time-consuming process (not to mention expensive due to traveling from out of state).
Interview Question – All questions were pretty typical. Asked about experience, goals, specific computer program knowledge... Answer Question

Interview Details – My hiring experience was different from others. However, when it got down to it I had to fill out the application, have a phone interview with human resources and my immediate boss. Then I went in for an in-person interview and met with three different people. They were all extremly nice. They asked questions regarding my experience and how I would handle various situations. It seemed to me they were very interested in how I would handle situations where I messed up or urgent problems.
Interview Question – There were no difficult questions in my interview. They just wanted to know what kind of experience would I have. Many questions were leading ones like "If there was some type of problem that happened because of you, what would you do"? Of course, they want you to be honest - so I said: View Answer
Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate. They offered me an amount that I was shocked and happy to have. :)

Interview Details – Very disconnected process. An HR rep called me to set up a phone interview, then she didn't call at the time we had agreed. She emailed later that day to apologize, saying her day had gotten disorganized, and she asked to reschedule for the next week. The next week, our phone interview went well and she asked if I could come meet the hiring manager. She told me she would call to confirm a time. Two days later, she emailed to ask if I could come the next morning. I answered within 30 minutes, and she said "too late, the calendar is full, I'll contact you to schedule another time." Then total silence. I followed up, but no answer. I later found out (via LinkedIn) that the position was filled internally. Their HR group appears to be very, very disorganized.

I got a call from a recruiter within a day of posting my resume on Dice. He arranged for a phone screen with the HR Manager, and it was just a simple call of what I want, blah, blah....
The next day I had a tech phone screen with the hiring manager, and it lasted about 20 minutes. Most of those questions were basic Java and OO, and I could answer all of them!
That Friday, I was called in to their office in midtown (Atlanta) for a series of in-person interviews. First with the hiring manager. He was friendly and it went on for about 40 minutes. The topics were J2EE, Spring, Hibernate, Struts, Oracle, etc. It was of increasingly complex, and I pretty much could answer all of them again. This was the best part of the interview. This guy was really nice.
From here on, everything went downhill. The interview with the Director was nothing but getting a consultant to freely help them to solve their pressing issues on hand. This guy was new, and on the job for just a few months and wanted solutions to revamp the build/integration environment. Most of the questions were about build automation, Hudson, JUnit execution as part of build, Maven, etc. He asked me to present the system in place in my current place of work! I felt like offering consulting services for free!!!
Then I had to hang out with the HR guy since the VP was busy. Note that I took time-off from work for this scheduled onsite interview! The HR guy tells me after 30 minutes that the VP can't make it for the interview, so he takes me back to the Director. He says that rest of the team would make the hiring decision!
The Director continues with the same set of build/test automation questions for another 30 minutes! He asked me repeatedly if I could improve their process.
I left their office, with some doubts in my mind about the company based on the interview experience. Guess what? I got a call on Monday from the HR guy that the VP wants to interview me, and if I can come to their office. I was not so keen to take time-off again, but he promised to have a meeting at 9AM in the morning, so I can return to work shortly after that. At this point, he said that it would be more of a formal, and started discussing about salaries, etc. In hindsight, was that a bait to bring me for the in-person interview?
The interview with VP lasted about 30 minutes, and all questions were about how to manage junior developers, getting status reports, getting work out of them, dealing with poor performers, etc. I was interviewing for a Lead Software Engineer, and questions exclusively on this topic didn't impress me!
When I left their office, I was thinking if I should really work for them. Well, I never heard back from them, but I didn't bother to ask them either. In a nutshell, unless you are desperate and/or unemployed, you have better options in Atlanta and rest of the country!
