Very Easy Interview
The process took 1 week - interviewed at Volt Information in March 2011.
Interview Details –
I interviewed for a specific advertised position, then was discussing placement in several other positions. I observed: 1) The one on one interview was very brief, with little attention paid to my qualifications 2) The position I was applying to was no longer available, but the recruiter told me they jest left jobs on their site for 90 days until they dropped off automatically rather than remove them 3) The recruiter called me later to offer positions that I was vastly overqualified for 4) When one short term offer actually sounded interesting I accepted it, then was called back days later to be told I was overqualified and the offer was withdrawn (try reading my resume next time). 5) It was obvious during our conversations that the recruiter simply didn't have any understanding of some job order requirements ie. didn't know the difference between a Sharepoint user and administrator.
Conclusion: Recruiter is skating by on the fact that there are lots of competent people looking for work now and if you randomly placed someone with minimum experience in a position there is a good chance they will do well.

Interview Details – There is an initial phone screen by a recruiter who clearly only cares about the commission on your hire, several antiquated web based skills assessments that you must complete from home prior to getting an invite to a 5 person panel interview. This process later changed to a cattle call where prospective employees were herded in by the 30 lot and interviewed for 5 min or less by varying levels of employees with little to no interviewing experience.
