I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at TRUSTe in September 2010.
Interview Details – I have had 4 different interviews in 10 days. 2 were on the phone and 2 were on the site. First, I have been contacted by HR for a preliminary technical interview (Simple java questions, compare heritage versus composition, collections, etc). The second phone interview was with a senior engineer. The questions were more than simple (threading questions, mapreduce framework, interacting with db via java) etc. What is the meaning of "volatile" keyword ? They have a small engineering team, I guess only 3 people. I have been interviewed by 2 on site. This was a blackboard interview about all over java, some questions were DMW-like questions, either you know them or not (or you would get an Illegal exception, if you try to compile the other answer). They also asked me to make a code project on site, in 90 mins. Code an elevator. The last interview was with VP of engineering. Not a technical one, general stuff. They did not make me an offer at the end. The procedure was quite fast and professional. They are expending their team, and I assume they have no precise projects in their minds yet.
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at TRUSTe in August 2010.
Interview Details – The phone interview was tackled very badly with rescheduling multiple times. In the end, it was a long interview with an engineer. The person at the end felt that I was "Too Confident" and turned me down.
Interview Question – Java Threading question. Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at TRUSTe in July 2010.
Interview Details – Everyone was aware of who I was and my experience and understood the value I could bring prior to meeting with me. The interviewers were serious and in need of my skills but friendly and very open with any information. I was never nervouse and never asked irrelevant questions. I was hired and start tomorrow so the whole process was 8 days. This is very exciting being a recruiter as I can feel confident that for the right candidate the process is tight and fast!

Negotiation Details – Was very smooth. I am honest and straightforward as they were. Be honest, and avoid negotiation by addressing salary at the beginning, middle and end of the process. The number can change depending on the percieved mutual value you bring to the company.
