I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen Norman (Orlando, FL) in April 2015.
The recruiting process is 8 steps total, with 3 steps requiring interviews. The first round was very laid back. The interviewer was extremely friendly and genuine with her line of questioning (as well as answers to your questions). The second interview process requires you to talk to two workers separately (so, ultimately, you will end up being interviewed twice at this round). The first two rounds are through Skype or other video calls. The third interview process consists of an in-person presentation, design exercise, and then lines of questioning.
*Note-I am just beginning the second portion of the interview process, so I do not know if I will receive an offer.
