I applied through college or university and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Reachlocal in March 2013.
Interview Details – I found out about RL because my alma mater was hosting an alumni career fair, which I decided to attend. Did my research and approach their booth about a particular position that was on the career website. I actively kept in touch with the hiring manager and talent acquisition specialist to set up an interview, and fortunately, we set up an interview for the beginning of the following week.
Came into the office and spoke with the two people I was in contact with at the same time. Focused more on what I know about the company and the products they sell and ran through my resume. Afterwords, the hiring manager gave me a "on the spot" test to see how fast of a learner I am when it comes to technology. Then, I was told to do role play with the talent acquisition specialist to see how I would be react in one of my responsibilities if I were offered a job. The interview took about an hour and was had a great process overall. They called me back the next day to offer me the position.

Interview Details – HR person did not submit my resume to manager for over a month. Finally did a phone interview and then a face to face.
HR screwed up the interview times and it lasted much longer, after being told that I would hear back shortly I never heard back from anyone.
Left voice messages and emails and never heard back on decision either way. This HR person in Woodland Hills does not seem to care nor does she display any person skills.
Interview Question – Given an IQ test that needed to be answered within a couple of minutes. Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Reachlocal.
Interview Details – Interview and hiring process was extremely quick, as I'm sure the recruiter was ready to get his bonus. My recruiter was a very nice guy, but EXTREMELY dishonest in telling me what I could expect to earn.
Applied online after a job in media fell through after a management change up and was called that same day for an interview. The second interview was in person with the Regional Sales Manager where he basically just talked to me (at me) for an hour. I barely got a word in. Mainly he wanted to see how many accounts you could bring in through personal connections. And he loved the sound of his voice, so he basically just took charge of the conversation. I had an interview with the North East Director of sales over the phone the next day and was hired the next. In all, it took less than a week for everything to happen.
Interviews like this happen often in the regional offices because they are constantly firing people after only a few months or people are leaving on their own. There's an insane amount of employee turnover because it's really not all its cracked up to be.
Interview Question – They ask you if you understand the products. So do a lot of research if you want the job, and be ready to talk about any media sales experience you have. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The negotiation phase wasn't very much. They asked me what I wanted in a salary and I told them, and they obliged. I might have been able to push for more, but to be honest, it was my first job in sales (and last) and I didn't have much presence to make demands.

The skills are extremely transferable, and with an open mind you can walk out every day having learned something new. The sales team is typically very well-versed in their art, the services team provides solid training for employees of all degrees of industry experience, and the management is qualified and flexible.
