I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Simply Hired in February 2011.
Interview Details – There were two phone screens, one very short one with a recruiter and another with the hiring manager, mostly going over the past and future of the position in question. The in-person interview was with a (contractor) incumbent and the hiring manager. The incumbent was late by 20 minutes, and the manager made me wait another 10 before showing up. The initial technical question asked, what happens during a typical web query, though a good overall gauge of technical depth, is too fraught with trivia in the details to be a good use of a senior enough candidate's time.

Interview Details – I first had two phone screens with their senior QA manager and CTO. They ask you to explain technical terms. After that, I had an onsite interview. I met their Technical Lead, QA manager, CTO, and President. Only the technical lead guy ask coding questions/puzzles/database questions. Both the QA manager and CTO have spoken on the phone with me. The manager lady asks many behavioral questions. The CTO asks about the same set of questions (HTTP, how do browsers work,...etc) as during phone screens. The President asks more behavioral questions to understand your characteristics. After the onsite, they haven't get back to me until 4 weeks later. They ask for another onsite interview. I met their QA manager, CTO again and CEO at this time. Their CEO is a really elegant leader. I enjoy talking with him very much. I got an offer the day after but instead of full-time position, they make it a contract to hire one. I think they are very cautious about hiring people.

Interview Details – I applied online and received an invite for phone screen. Cleared the phone screen and met with the team in person. They invited me over to office at 1:30pm, but wasn't told that interviews would last for 6 hours with 4 people. Everyone grilled me as if it was the best company ever. In fact one guy was constantly emphasizing multiple times that he was the first employee to join simplyhired. I felt like quitting my interview right away. I got a call from hiring manager the next day reading out the offer. The offer did not even have proper benefits for a full time employee. I softly declined the offer during that call itself. But I received an email from the manager once more after a week.
