I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Quidel (San Diego, CA) in June 2015.
This was a fairly straight forward on-site interview with the product manager and HR person. The interview felt like more like a conversation. There were no standard interview questions used. It was not until later that the HR coordinator mentioned that they were considering an internal candidate. At that point, the interview seemed like more of a formality on their end.

Was contacted via LinkedIn for this opportunity. There was initial email communication, followed by a phone interview. Technical Support is located in corporate office in Carmel Valley. I wasn't extended an offer, but had an overall good feeling from the experience. Training involves a lot of shadowing initially, as well as a certain amount of mentorship. I had positive feedback for the company culture.

Changes were made to the verbally agreed upon offer: once over the phone to lower the salary, and once again when the papers came for signing to change the exempt/non-exempt status. The hiring manager promised to make good on the original offer after 6 months, but that didn't happen.
