I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at STIHL Incorporated in July 2010.
Interview Details – Not very detailed, just took a tour of the plant and had small talk with the hiring manager then went and had lunch and afterwards talked some more. He then said to go and stand by my computer for them to email me an offer.

Interview Details – Initial contact was difficult, but after I finally got an interview lined up things went smoothly. It was a pretty general interview that was not too terrible.

I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at STIHL Incorporated in August 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online application, received an email 2 days later to send in a resume, phone interview with their Technical Recruiter, 4 weeks later received an email to setup onsite interview which was 3 days after. The onsite interview was suppose to be with same Technical Recruiter, Operations & Office Systems Manager and Interim Director of IS, but I only had interviews with the Technical Recruiter, Operations & Office Systems Manager. I was told they would setup another onsite interview with the Interim Director of IS. I was told 2 weeks later from the HR manager that the Technical Recruiter would provide feedback within another week. I never heard back about the other interview with the Interim Director of IS nor any feedback on the onsite interview I did have. I did however find out that they were suppose to create 2-3 more positions and were not sure if they were going to pursue the job they posted and that I had applied for. Oh and yes I should have got a clue when they mentioned Interim Director of IS!
Interview Question – On site interview was just a casual sit down discussing their organization, sturcture and duties and then I was told "I guess I have to ask you the usual quesitons" which were why do you want to work here, what are your strengths, what are your weaknesses and then what type of management style do you use?

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at STIHL Incorporated in April 2013.
Interview Details – They're not clear about what they want in the description. The skills they list make it sound like they want a .NET Web Developer. But when you interview, you find out they want this developer to know desktop development and a little networking as well. They'd also like the person to have experience in Java.
They make it sound like you're joining a team and mentoring younger developers. They're really looking for you to be the sole person in charge of all application development (web and desktop) and create an Operations Department from scratch (create an SDLC, list of best practices, deployment process, source control, etc.). In my opinion, this is above a Software Engineer and they'll have a tough time filling this position even if they correct the job description.
It's going to be difficult to find a good developer well-versed in so many different areas. Sounds like they want a Web Programmer/UI Developer/Windows Application Developer/Systems Administrator/Development Manager hybrid who will do all the work. They're not looking to hire more people for a few more years.
