I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at eHarmony (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2015.
Round 1: 45 min phone screen - theoretical concepts about Java - mostly about data structures and concurrency Round 2: 45 min Skype interview - Java programming problem through collabedit Round 3: Onsite interview in Westwood office in LA, from 11 am to 4:45 pm - 45 minute sessions with different interviewers who test Java coding abilities, multi-threading, design patterns and some basic SQL knowledge. Went out for lunch with one of the interviewers to a nice Italian restaurant, Palomino, a couple of minutes walk from the office. The Westwood office is new, and the interviewers are nice and friendly. The recruiter played a vital role by keeping me well-informed about the process, which is quite amazing. The whole interviewing experience was good, and met my expectations that the company had built up through the phone screen and Skype interviews. I had to choose another offer over eHarmony's, which was for a specialized position in my field.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at eHarmony (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2015.
Applied through career portal online. Scheduled a first phone call just to know it was HR person just describing their company (When asked, he had no idea regarding details of my job role). Just a 10 min conversation and scheduled a technical round. This guy seemed to be a principal engineer, sounded kind of rude because it went like a rapid fire round, he asked a wide variety of questions without giving much time to think

Received a phone interview form an HR rep a few days after I applied online. The interview lasted less than 10 minutes, she was very short and dry and didn't really want to get to know more about me, but was very to the point.

I apply eHarmony online and after 5 days a HR contact me for first interview. In the first interview there's no tech questions but HR asked me some question about my project experience. Then I received a task test to do. I finish it as quick as I can then send back to them. Till now I am still waiting for reply....

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at eHarmony (Santa Monica, CA).
Initial phone interview was very detailed and helpful. Next was an in-house interview with my prospective supervisor and with a member of the Human Resources department. The interview question were pretty basic, mostly having to do with past work experience and skill level. I think they could have shared more about the company culture and would push them for that if interviewing again.
- There really weren't any. All of the questions related directly to my skill level. I didn't think the questions were all that interesting either. Answer Question
Negotiated salary up by $5,000. Not much room for any other negotiations. I would recommend that if you want to negotiate then this probably isn't the right fit for you.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at eHarmony (Santa Monica, CA) in January 2012.
Applied online via eHarmony. Also connected to one of the hiring managers on linkedIn. Did a quick 20min phone interview and they decided to bring me in for an onsite interview. eHarmony is located in the same building as Yahoo. Cool work place. Lots of pictures of matched couples on the wall. Relax and casual environment. Typical dot-com company. Was asked questions pertaining to data visualization, statistics and machine learning.
- Describe bayesian classifiers. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at eHarmony (Santa Monica, CA) in September 2011.
Very unprofessional. I was scheduled to meet with 5 or 6 different individuals. 3 of them would not meet with me because they were "too busy." Instead, they sent in a few surrogates that did not understand the position that I had applied for. Every interview was all over the place. eHarmony clearly had no clue what they were looking for in a Data Analyst. The actual hiring manager asked several questions about machine learning, which I was expecting. But all of the other interviews involved dashboard creation. I do not know one Data Analyst that also does dashboard design as that is clearly a frontend user interface engineering position. They asked me if I had experience with practically every single machine learning, statistics and visualization package known to man. It was clear that they were just going down a checklist of the latest buzzwords. Recruiter said "I will have an answer to you tomorrow." Three days passed and I emailed the recruiter. His response was "the hiring manager was in a car accident. I will have an answer in a few days." I never heard back. Very unprofessional to not even have the cojones to deliver bad news. I am glad that I did not get the position though. This is a typical corporate dot com company with a typical 9-5 boring culture. I was not into the whole touchy-feely notion that they are helping people "find love." Gag me. The person that they did end up hiring is just a basic data analyst with no machine learning or visualization experience according to LinkedIn. So what the heck were they hiring for? I guess when they found out they couldn't find an expert in "everything" they changed their tactics. The position was open for at least 9 months. The whole process was pitiful, and makes eHarmony and the recruiter look pathetic.
