Senior Java Developer Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)

Marketing Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Taulia in June 2012.
Interview Details – Very casual and informal interview process. It's very important you are experienced for the position you are applying for, but Taulia is also looking to see if you'll be a "cultural fit"; this is almost as important. You'll probably be taken out for an interview by either one or two people that are not in the department you are applying for ...this is part of the "cultural fit" interview process.
It is a very young company, like most startups in the Bay Area, so be prepared to be interviewed by people younger than you if you are over 40. Also be aware that if you are hired these will be your colleagues on a day-to-day basis. This can be a great thing or a bad thing depending on your personality.
Interview Question – Standard interview and get-to-know-you questions. Nothing out of the ordinary and no questions about your biggest strength or biggest weakness. Hiring might be more structured and formal now as they have someone devoted entirely to recruiting Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Typical negotiation dance; know what you want going in.

Events Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Taulia.
Interview Details – Had an initial phone interview which went very well, was then was scheduled for a second longer phone interview. That's where everything went pear shaped, the person that was supposed to do my interview didn't and I ended up interviewing with someone else who was clearly rushed as that interview barely lasted 10 minutes. The cherry on my interview experience was that the emailed me to let me know that they would be scheduling a face to face interview... and they never did. When I emailed them 2+ weeks later, they replied saying they weren't "ready to move forward with scheduling an interview at this time, but I will definitely reach out when a decision to move forward has been made". That was the last I heard from anyone. Not sure if this is their general practice but I found it very strange.
Interview Question – I was asked if I had any creative suite experience as ideal they would like the events manager to have a hand in the marketing and design aspect of things as well Answer Question
Senior Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Taulia in September 2011.
