I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Intel Corporation in April 2010.
Interview Details – Received an email from the hiring manager that my resume had been found on an industry website, and asked my interest in a phone interview, without any description or mention of the position being interviewed for. Phone interview was very straightforward and only asked about the research/work experiences listed on my resume. Was invited to apply for the position and invited out for an onsite interview a few weeks later. Was notified of the onsite interview date only 4 days ahead of time.

Engineering Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Intel Corporation in August 2008.
Interview Details – Quick couple questions, we both realized that I was applying for the wrong kind of job (they wanted a user with hardware experience, and mine is 90% software). It seems like it wouldn't have been a difficult interview for someone with the proper experience. He asked me about my knowledge of page tables and caches and stuff, things that would typically be in the undergraduate introductory computer hardware courses
Interview Question – What is a page table? Answer Question

The next business day I was contacted saying I have not been considered.
Interview Question – what is the application of your research Answer Question
Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Intel Corporation in May 2012.
Interview Details – My interview, which lasted 4 hours, comprised of several 1:1 interviews with several people. The questions primarily were behavioral with a few technical questions added in occasionally. After the interview, I was told that I would hear back within 2 weeks. I sent a follow up email inquiring what my status was at the 2 week point, but was told they were finishing up interviews during week 3. 4 weeks went by until I received an email notification from HR and not the person I interviewed.
They made it appear throughout the interview that I pretty much had the job, and couldn't seem to stop talking about the benefits package, moving package, etc. The only thing they didn't mention was salary, which from what I had heard, was non-negotiable anyways from others I know who work at Intel. The manager gloated on numerous occasions about his recent expensive purchases, which I found to be rather tasteless.
Unprofessional, poor communication, misleading, and lack of modesty is how I would describe the primary interviewer.
My perception of the work culture is that it's close knit, but they expect you to work long hours, as well as remain on call 24/7, so there is a terrible life/work balance, reinforced by the manager plainly stating that he was hiring someone specifically to offload his work while he took off on his 2 month sabbatical.
I don't have any advice for other interviewers.

Interview Details – The overall interview experience was good. There were 5 rounds with a completely different focus on each one.
