I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at mFoundry (San Francisco, CA).
Came in as a referral, the process to setup a phone screen and onsite interview was quick. The recruiters were very accommodating and nice. During the phone screen and onsite interview with the hiring manager was a bit difficult. The culture is very laid back, but conservative.
- Discussing different SDLC's and AGILE background, technical questions, and critical thinking questions Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at mFoundry (San Francisco, CA).
One phone interview with the hiring manager and 1:1 onsite interview with 3 people. This was not a good interview experience, interviewers were nice but the HR never contacted me back regarding the interview outcome which is very nonprofessional.
- Nothing difficult. How would you handle criticism? What is your typing speed, do you look at the keyboard while typing? Pen test (same question was asked 3 times) Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at mFoundry (San Francisco, CA) in June 2012.
Answered an ad posted on Craigslist and did some research on the company and decided to submit my resume. I was contacted by a recruiter within two days. We communicated primarily by email to set up a phone interview. I interviewed with one of the leads over the phone, then was contacted later that day to set up a time to come in and interview in person. I came in and interviewed with three people. It lasted about three hours. Within a week, I was offered a position and accepted. There were some technical questions, some process questions and the usual questions about best/worst qualities, experiences, etc. I was required to submit to a background check, including a drug screening, before I could start work.
- I wouldn't say the questions were too difficult, I would suggest however reading up on how to approach the QA process and the overall role of QA in an organization and the services it provides. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at mFoundry (Larkspur, CA) in December 2011.
Hired after school. Asked the Fibonacci sequence, how to design a complex server architecture, and a few general programming questions ("What is an interface", "What is a 'partial' class", etc.) The interview process involved a 'technical' phone interview, that was pretty simple (what classes are you taking, what are you learning, etc.). In person, it required meeting with 3 people, one at a time. Each person asked a different style of questions (algorithms, design, programming language experience)
- Providing the Fibonacci sequence iteratively, and the Big O notation of it. Answer Question
Offered a very low offer. Initially declined and asked for a higher salary, received ~7% more.
