Very Easy Interview
Software Quality Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at eCollege.com in March 2010.
Interview Details – 30 min phone screening by incompetent HR generalist or recruiter. I'd make sure you ask them questions as well. And don't be afraid to say 'no' to them, especially after they offer you your salary. Be ready for the politics as well, because they are everywhere.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at eCollege.com in August 2011.
