I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Taleo (Dublin, CA) in March 2011.
An HR screening interview was contacted less than 12 hours after submitting my resume online. It was a very good call, a basic high-level HR call, asking about my background, my interest in the position, my current situation, why I'm looking, and my salary expectations. Aprox. 20-25 min. The interviewer was very polite, very professional, very to the point (not chatty whatsoever), and my guess was probably following a standard script. He gave me positive feedback, stressed the corporate benefits, salary structure and positive work culture, and intimated that I he felt the interview went well and I would be submitted as a candidate for next steps. I was told I would hear back in "1 or 2 days at most," and that their hiring process is very fast, and he stressed "very." That was the last I heard and it's been about 1 week. It could be they're very busy hiring multiple positions, or perhaps I was over-sold on the success of our HR screening interview.
Your feedback has been sent to the team and we'll look into it.
