I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Workday in December 2013.
Interview Details –
I applied online in September for a position in their Pleasanton office. I was contacted by the recruiter inviting me to interview. I was invited to Pleasanton, CA for the interview. The travel coordinator contacted me to make the arrangements. Their process is screwy. You have to make your own travel arrangements but adhering to their strict rules. Then you have to get an approval before making the flight arrangements. They get back to you days later and the price has already gone up. When you get to San Francisco, you must take the BART to their offices. They do not pick you up. It is a hassle, to say the least. Then you have to walk about a mile to the hotel.
In the morning, you need to find your own way to their offices but they do not reimburse you. Once there, they take you to a meeting room to discuss the day and schedule. Then you are put a room and interviewed for 4 hours straight. Nonstop. Many different people come in and out of the room to interview you. The tech test was about object modeling and logic. Nothing too difficult. You also meet with the recruiter again.
They feed you lunch and discuss benefits. Except they don't give you any concrete information about benefits. They say they will let you know in your offer what the benefits are. After that, they show you their product for the 4th or 5th time in the same day. Then they hold an informal social with other employees. Then, they let you go. You have to find your own way to the bart station. Most of us walked.
I was told they would contact me by phone no more than 2 weeks later. They promised that they would contact each person whether they got the job or not. I was told that they were going to make me an offer and that they wanted to hire me. It has been a month and I have not heard back. I even emailed the recruiter a couple times to follow up. They do no respond. Very unprofessional if you ask me. Apparently, after reading this site, it is typical of them to do this. To me, this is an indication of the caliber of people at the company. I would not work for this kind of company.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Workday in June 2013.
Interview Details –
Applied job through their website, and then got replied from recruiter the day after.
First phone screen with recruiter for 30 min - went through past work experience.
Second phone screen with hiring manger for 30 min - went through some basic object oriented programming concept such as "abstraction", "inheritance", "polymorphism", and "encapsulation".
Then onsite interview for 4.5 hours, met with hiring manager and other teammates. The most memorable part was to come up class design to mimic Netflix. It was a group discussion where they gave you requirement and then see how you work through the problem via UML.
Overall, all the people that I talked to were super friendly and helpful. It was a pleasant experience.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Workday in December 2011.
Interview Details – Applied on their web site and didn't hear back for about a month. Then spoke with the HR person and scheduled a time to talk with a former colleague from a previous company. That went as expected. Onsite followed a week or so later, consisting of three hours of sitting at a computer making their broken test code run and implementing some basic logic in their application code. Then went to lunch with four people, mostly developers. After lunch was a panel review of my code changes, followed by a 1:1 with a developer and then an overview of the system by the hiring manager (the same former colleague). After a week or so got a voice mail with no specifics and I declined to call back; received a few more voice mails, no email. I assume I failed. Even if not, it was such a miserable interview I didn't want to accept even if they did offer.
Interview Question – What do you think of unit testing and mock objects? Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Workday in February 2012.
Interview Details –
After submitting my resume, they invited me on site for an all day interview. This consisted of a breakfast, company orientation, 3 hour block of 1:1 interviews, followed by another group presentation of the company, and finally concluded with a social.
All in all, the 1:1 interviews never really went too technical. They focused primarily on object relational models and design questions. They don't really go into coding as their in house developers use a proprietary language.
They really went out of their way to make the interview as stress free as possible and all of their employees are pretty laid back.
