I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Circle of Moms (San Francisco, CA) in July 2011.
After submitting a resume online, I had an initial telephone interview with the person I would be replacing (who was leaving for a new career opportunity and on very good terms). She was friendly, informative, and polite, gave me a lot of information about the company, and asked great leading questions that allowed me to showcase my experience and qualifications. Not long after, I was contacted via email for an in-person interview and scheduled to come in. I interviewed with a total of four people, 1:1, including both founders of the company and another high-ranking employee I'd be working closely with. There was a great balance of information given and requested, and through the four people I got a well-rounded idea of what the expectations, responsibilities, and environment would be like. I was able to address their needs and concerns and nothing they asked was unexpected or unusual.
