I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oceanwide.
Interview Details –
First interview: HR1 + Architect.
Architect asks technical questions reading from paper with questions, no good. HR1 girl looks all the time into the window (enjoying really great view) being bored by the technical details of the conversation. Questions asked:
1) What are process, application domain, thread?
2) What's GC and what to do(design/program) to reduce its overhead?
3) How would you design that and that for a given business use case.
Other general questions.
Second interview: HR2 + CTO.
Less technical questions, more related to project lifecycle and PM, interpersonal communication. CTO is really great guy, very positive and smart.
Overall: very positive nice people, interesting to talk to (and I guess to work with).
Overall company impression: a (relatively) small company trying to save its budget in all possible ways (except technology used?). They have relatively low salaries and the benefits are almost non-existing comparing to blue-chip employers. They are still great for a work experience gain and low-fat-agile-working-development-environment using the latest MS technologies.

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Oceanwide in June 2012.
Interview Details – The VP was in an out of the interview at least 5 times and the other person interviewing was the direct report of the future manager, which was very odd. The interview questions were not prepared in advance and the interuptions were very disruptive.
Interview Question – We are planning to move to at least 30 minutes from where we are, how would you take this ? Answer Question
Pros: In the 12 years I;ve been here, Oceanwide has seen it's share of up's and down's, trust me I've seen them all. Anyone who's come aboard during a bad phase could certainly have a poor perception of the place. Like a lot of companies, I think OW had… – Full Review
