I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at J.D. Power (Westlake Village, Los Angeles, CA) in April 2014.
Recruiter contacted me, phone interview with manager, invite to fly out to HQ (they paid) and met with several people. I also had 2 phone interviews with people before I flew out.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day – interviewed at J.D. Power (Westlake Village, Los Angeles, CA) in April 2010.
Current employee referred me to the recruiter for the position I interviewed for. Recruiter called to schedule the interview with the research manager and director. Went into interview first with recruiter then the hiring manager, did not end up meeting with the director. Interview seemed to go very well, they were impressed by my background but I heard early the following day that they went with an internal candidate who had already formed a relationship with the client team. I was told the starting salary for this position was about $54k/year.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at J.D. Power (Westlake Village, Los Angeles, CA) in January 2010.
I was interviewed by a number of project teams, as well as extensively by the project team that I was going to be working with. Overall it seemed as though they were trying to get more of an idea of my personality than trying to see what skills I brought to the table. The people were all very friendly and laid back, but didn't seem enthusiastic about the company.
