The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Vitals in September 2011.
Interview Details –
They interview process at Vitals is very extensive and long. I think as a start up they know exactly the kind of people they want and they make sure that everyone you have to work with is positive about you before they bring you on borad.
I was contacted by a recruiter for the position, who was very nice and easy to work with and made sure I was suitable for the position before she set up my phone interview. The phone interview was with the department head. Seemed like an easy going person- we went through my resume over the phone and he asked my some questions related to my background and previous experience. Next step was a 1: 1 interview with him and the rest of the team. This was about a 2-3 hours interview session where I was interviewed by different department heads. The 3rd interview was with the company GM and the head of the sales team and a project manager.
The recruiter was nice enough to coordinate pretty much everything. Also everyone at Vitals was very easy going. The atmosphere and culture at the company seemed great. The benefits were just ok though.
Overal I would say a nice place to work if you are looking to work for a start up.
Reason for Declining – I was not sure about the growth possibilities at the organisation. Also working with a start up involves certain risks as they are funded by VC's.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Vitals in April 2011.

They made me go through a lot of meetings.
First it was a phone interview with one recruiter. Two weeks later, a personal 1-1 interview with a senior recruiter. The following week a personal interview at the company, then a group interview with people from different departments. Two weeks after, a personal interview with the CEO. And to conclude a final interview with a person from a different department... And still it's not sure this last interview will be the end of the process...

Interview Details –
Hiring process started Nov 4, 2011 with skype interviews, all went good. Received offer letter 12/13, not too bad. Soon after, hiring manager was let go for some reason (which itself calls into question their vetting process and overall business acumen), was told offer letter was no good, face-to-face interviews as contingency were missing from letter. Scheduled interviews, in offices Jan 5 for interviews with approx 6-7 people. Waited again for approx 17 days, received e-mail stating that they rethought strategy and will not be hiring reps in my area.
Everyone was nice and professional, but there are obviously some issues when you receive an offer letter, the hiring manager is fired, and you get verbal spin with regard to why the offer letter is no longer valid, especially when I was told that the hiring manager was coordinating with her superior to write the letter within their guidelines. I really liked what they were trying to do, but in the span of the interview process the strategy changed numerous times.
