I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Pavlov Media.
The first two interviews went well enough, until the CEO was involved. The position was for someone with general technical knowledge. The last interview consisted of the CEO quizzing me on Networking details and coding, which had nothing to do with the position. I found out that these clowns under-pay for all their positions, and he was not going to pay me near what I was asking. The last time I looked, this position was downgraded to some kind of secretarial job with a GED or high school diploma required. Before the last interview, I watched an interview of the CEO, and he had the gall to act like he invented the word tesseract for their stupid internet service called some variant of that. All it is is some peer to peer networking they have with Google and other search engines. The CEO is a tyrant, and acts like a three-year-old. Run, don't walk away from this place!!!

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week – interviewed at Pavlov Media.
Interview process consisted of three rounds: phone interview, proficiency exam, and then in-person interview. Phone interview was basic phone interview while in-person interview took care of the specific programming challenges. Expect to know your language well and solve challenges without the use of IDE. Proficiency test ranged from easy to difficult tests that they didn't expect you to fully pass unless you're an extremely great Senior level programmer.

I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Pavlov Media (Champaign, IL) in February 2010.
This company did not take time out of their busy schedules to dedicate to interview me properly. It seems they were more interested in my ability to raise money or who I knew in the venture capital world than my skill sets. This was very frustrating and I did not let them know that some of their previous funding had came from a friend of mine. I left that out of the equation for a good reason and now have moved on to another company that is their competition. Unfortunately the company I am advising now as a strategic plan to take over their ill managed properties and I am sure this will happen given the sophistication of this company and market position.

Reasons for Declining
Unprofessional and no follow through on their word. When you say your going to do something you make it a priority to do it.
