I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OpenTech Alliance (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2016.
Interview was only suppose to be an hour, but I ended up staying 3 hours and I was perfectly fine with that.
I was introduced to all the developers, then we all sat around a conference area, and took questions from the developers and technical questions from the IT department lead. This was my 1st interview in quite some time, so I may have been a little rusty on some of the questions or the way of explaining some things because I hadn't had to in 9+ years. Either way, I felt comfortable with the team and thought it went great.
I then got to sit with one of the lead developers and look at the code base, etc. It was pretty self explanatory. I chatted with some of the other developers and they all seem really cool and awesome.
Everyone else I dealt with were great, laid back, and the open environment is ideal. It isn't loud as well considering it's an open warehouse type of office.
They seemed like they were really structured in what they were doing, believed in the product, and had some very exciting things coming in the future, and I really felt like I wanted to be apart of it.
I then left that evening, and heard back that I should have an offer on Monday. So I waited, and got an offer, however this position was retracted for me and I was given a pretty ridiculously low offer. The job I was working prior was paying me more, and that's saying a lot.
For my past experience and loyalty, I kindly had to decline the offer, even though worse case scenario and I really needed something, I would have taken it. I would have LOVED this job and working with the small team that was there. I even met the CEO the same day and he seemed really nice. No hard feelings at all minus the offer, but I understand.
