I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at O'Keeffe & Company in August 2014.
As others have said, the first step was a pretty in depth phone interview, expect it to last 30-40 minutes. After that, I was asked to submit a writing sample in the form of a press release about my hypothetical employment with O'keeffe. Next, I was called in for an in person interview, during which I completed a rather unusual sorting exercise and had a more informal peer meeting. A few days later, a follow up interview was conducted with a manager, in which the same basic questions were asked as before. Finally, roughly a week and a half later, I had a final interview with Steve O'keeffe himself, which lasted less than ten minutes and covered the same ground as every previous interview. A few days later, Steve sent me an email notifying me that I didn't get the job.
Overall, the process felt extremely redundant and drawn out. As I stated, the same material was covered at each level of the process- a lot of time could have been saved had I just met with each individual at the same time. For a company that continually stressed that they had no problem firing under- performers, they seemed surprisingly indecisive when it came to choosing new people.
