I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at onlineshoes.com in March 2014.
Interview Details – After submitting my resume and cover letter, I received an email to set up a phone interview with their HR person. The questions were standard and the interview went well though I wish they would have given their salary range before the end of the conversation. I was asked to come in and meet with my potential hiring manager. The date and time were changed 3 times. On the day of the interview they sent out an email that they were no longer going to hire for the position. Complete waste of time.

Interviewed at onlineshoes.com
Interview Details – I never actually got to the interview process. The recruiter reached out the next day after I submitted my resume, and scheduled a phone interview. As we approached that time, she emailed me to reschedule. Fine - then that rescheduled time came and went, she never called, then she emailed me several hours later to reschedule yet again. Long story short, we rescheduled probably 5 times. Our final reschedule, she didn't respond to my email, nor call me. What an incredible waste of time! It's a shame because looking at their website, I was impressed by their fun culture. But forget it. Talk about lack of respect for your candidates.
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 5 days - interviewed at onlineshoes.com in January 2007.
Interview Details – A head hunter found this temporary part-time position for me. To be honest, I wasn't too thrilled by the position to begin with, but I wanted the interview experience. I have a degree in Computer Science and this job only consists of editing really basic HTML stuff. The pay is also pretty low, but I figured it's a foot in the door to more software-engineering-intensive positions in the future.
Couple of hours after the interview I got a call from my head hunter telling me the good news. However, the company wanted to change the contract so I'd have to work full-time at the same hourly rate. I decided that no amount of money can make me work as a full-time HTML monkey, so I tried to negotiate either more money and/or less hours. The company decided to interview another person and subsequently hired him/her. My head hunter kept telling me how bad the market was and how there were senior web devs taking $15/hour positions, which I think is total BS. You can make more working as a valet!
Pretty much as soon as I found out the company hired another person, I was contacted by Google and Apple for interviews. In the end, I'm glad I hesitated so I can focus on prepping for interviews for jobs that I would actually enjoy doing :)
