    First had a quick phone interview, where they quickly went over my resume and experience with related technologies.

    I applied online and the whole process took more than a month. First a 15-20 mins phone screen which was based on your resume. Followed with an on-site interview, you will meet with your peers, manager, and manager's manager. The whole experience was great, everyone was friendly and professional. The questions were fairly easy, mostly what's on your resume and how your past experience relates to the job. The position I initially applied was filled by internal candidates, so they provided me with a different position which fits my interests as well. The offer came in 3 weeks after the on-site interview. It was a long process but worth the wait.
