I applied online - interviewed at Recommind in March 2014.
Interview Details – I applied online and the entire process took about 1.5 months. One phone screen from HR. One in-person interview with managers and another phone screen with potential co-workers. The company is run by non-lawyers who hire JD as analyst roles at a low salary.
Interview Question – No difficult questions I think it was just a matter of a popularity contest with the potential co-workers, who I feel were intimidated by me and asked a barrage of questions that were unrelated and undermined my experience. View Answer
I applied online - interviewed at Recommind in September 2013.
Interview Details – Was contacted very quickly for a phone interview, which was anything but a pre-screening. 30 minutes of HR asking both boilerplate (tell me about yourself) questions, and tech-savvy questions as well. Was told my resume would be passed on to the hiring manager at the end of the call. Received a "thanks, but no thanks" about 1 week later after followup.
Interview Question – No major stumpers, just the surprise that this was more than a quick pre-screen. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Recommind in June 2013.
Interview Details – The interview process consisted of an initial phone screening and then I was invited to come in and meet the team. Meeting the team consisted of meeting three team members then being tested about troubleshooting the software that Recommind provides their customers. Before being tested, I was given a packet with basic information about the product and some administrative info about how it's installed and what not.
Interview Question – There were no trick questions, they seem to want to really get to know you as a professional and potential employee. View Answer
Reason for Declining – Logistically speaking, the job would have been difficult for me to manage with a commute and timing etc. As far as career aspirations, Recommind would be great for me and is an amazing company and place to work, but I had other offers from places that could utilize my stronger skills and had more direct paths towards my career aspirations.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Recommind.
Interview Details – The whole thing was pretty well organized... but they never tried selling me on the job until the very last interview. Made me wonder whether they were actually really interested, but I think they just didn't know that it's a 2-way street (I have to want to take the job).
Interview Question – None. All pretty straight forward. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I tried to negotiate, but they led with what they wanted to pay so they didn't really want to negotiate.

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Recommind in October 2010.
Interview Details – Nice bunch of folks, with a straightforward interview process. No big surprises or trick questions. If have you have worked with a major search product, have some solid coding skills, and can communicate effectively, you will do fine. I met with several different folks in the consulting group and they were all pleasant. Some were more stiff than others, that could be due to inexperience. However, as a company, they do not have deep pockets so don't expect a killer offer (unless you are a bona fide subject matter expect in the search and classification field). Never the less, this would seem to be an ideal place to learn your trade if fresh out of school and willing to work hard.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Recommind.
Interview Details – For the position I had a 1 hour phone interview with the group manager, an at home technical test that took 2 days, an in person technical test that was 4 hours in San Francisco, and then 6 interviews over 3 hours the following day. The whole process was very poorly organized, there were many typos and missed information in the technical tests, and the communication between groups was atrocious. The position was to be split 50-50 between two different departments that had completely different ideas of what the job entailed and what it's salary compensation should be.
