I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Square in February 2012.
Interview Details –
Applied via the Square jobs posting page after finding it on Twitter. Was contacted the day of via email to schedule a phone interview.
Following that I spoke to a guy named Miles who asked me a bunch of behavioral questions - I felt a bit nervous because it seemed that there was a delay between the sound being transmitted from person to person; however it seemed pretty basic.
I was asked what I would bring to the table and what the market is like in the general area as to how i can expand the brand itself.
The interview lasted about 30 minutes.
A couple of days later I was notified of getting the job.
