I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Tumblr in November 2013.
Interview Details – I found the position and applied immediately via their /jobs page. One day later, I was contacted by their lovely recruiter to set up a 30 minute phone interview. The following day, we were on the phone and it was all pretty standard. She asked me to tell her more about my work experiences, how much I would expect salary wise and checked to see if I knew about the basics needed for the job. After, she told me she'd pass my resume on to the manager in the Support department and that they'd be in touch to set up a 1:1 interview if he thought I was a good fit. Two days later I heard back and was set up for an interview in less than a week with three different members of the team I would be a part of. When I went in, the recruiter came to greet me and then later I met with each member one by one. I found the questions to be pertinent to the position I was applying for and every one of the members was pleasant to speak with. I felt very comfortable answering their questions.
Interview Question – I didn't find this difficult at all, but to answer this question, the "hardest" thing was being put on the spot to translate some support paragraphs from English to Spanish. And also, being tested on my Portuguese reading skills (which I mentioned in my phone interview). I did very well in both tests. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – When I received the offer call, I was very satisfied with the offer and accepted it as it was.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Tumblr.
Interview Details – Worst interview I've ever dealt with. I canceled after two interviews which took 5 weeks to setup. The first interviewer missed the first call because he was sick (an never bothered to reach out to the recruiter) and then was 45 minutes late for the second. He then just talked all about how amazing the company was and asked me one question. The second interviewer was an hour late. Opened with ..i read your resume so tell me something else about you that i wouldn't know .. and then asked me two questions that were basically comsci with no relation to the job.
Interview Question – There wasn't any depth to the interview. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Wouldnt work at this mess of a company if they doubled my salary.
I applied online and interviewed at Tumblr.
Interview Details – I found the position open on Tumblr and immediately was contacted for an interview. I replied the following day for a potential time but received no response. After many attempts at reaching out again, the woman ignored all of them. Completely unprofessional.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Tumblr in February 2013.
Interview Details –
One of the staffing agency reached out to me asking if i'd be interested talking to Tumblr for an ops role. Interview consisted of phone screen, 1:1 via skype, then onsite.
Interviewer wasnt prepared, says he's busy and didn't get a chance to look at my resume and starts asking programming questions, when i have a system administration background.
Seriously?? i get it, you're busy, i am busy, it's a busy busy world out there. But if you are not certain to spend 10 minutes to skim through a resume, it just tells me how efficient your work ethic is.
30 mins of the screen mostly consisted of tooting his own horn hoe awesome he was and what he did at google and why he thinks Tumblr is great and how he likes to ramp up the team.
