I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at WebMD Health (Portland, OR) in March 2012.
The initial communications were very professional. The process was actually quite easy going with a phone interview with the hiring manager and prospective teammate. The second interview was in person and consisted of mostly questions related to my background, types of projects and products implemented previously, and and my detailed skill sets that would prove beneficial in supporting the product they were developing. It was one of the easiest interview processes in comparison to most organizations. However, my resume is very detailed, I provide detailed projects/product work samples from past organizations I worked for, and a long list of accomplishments that outlines everything any prospective employer would need to know about my experience. I felt very comfortable throughout the process and the folks I met with were very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Very nice and positive group of people.

The process took a week – interviewed at WebMD Health (Portland, OR) in April 2010.
I had two one-on-one non-technical interviews, which went well. I then had two two-on-one interviews. The first was technical. It was somewhat difficult, but reasonable. The second interview was I guess meant to try to understand my architecture methodology, but was done in such a way that they kept asking general questions that weren't actually answerable, and not giving any feedback on what they were getting at. It was the first time I remember feeling that the interviewers faield the interview process. Not only did I not get the job, they never got back with me.

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks – interviewed at WebMD Health (Portland, OR) in February 2010.
I had at least 7 interviews. A very long, drawn out, inefficient process. I was asked some illegal questions such as could I travel or did I have kids that made it so I could not travel easily.
There is room for negotiation here, especially now as they have lost so many people.
