I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Theranos in January 2013.

Interview Details – Did 2 interviews:
- the first one was more about learning my background and personality;
- the second one was the technical one, except for the fact that the interviewer didn't ask any technical questions, was more asking to describe the project I was working on;
and finally said I didn't have enough experience for the job!

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Theranos in May 2012.

Interview Details – Met a recruiter at a job fair, exchanged emails with him and then did a half-hour phone screen. Was contacted a few days later to do an on-site interview with 3 different people. Mostly technical questions, solved some problems on a whiteboard. The following weekend I came in for an interview with the CEO and COO, then got the offer that week.
