I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Obsidian Entertainment.
Interview Details – I talked with producers and then a game designer explained his game. I wanted to critique it as the dialog was pretty stiff, but I kept my mouth shut. I lunched with a dour tech director, who didn't smile once. Then I had a table of programmers interview me. I did well, but got a form letter later. They had huge layoff soon afterwards.
