I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Rainforest Alliance.
First had a phone interview with an HR Rep (~30 minutes), then a face-to-face with the Hiring Manager (~45 minutes). Both contained the standard lineup of questions (why do you want to work here, tell me more about that experience, etc.). Also included a writing test with a foreign language component (~30 minutes).
I was originally supposed to interview with two people for the second round, the hiring manager (who would be the position's supervisor, ostensibly) and another staff member from the development department. However, the second person was unable to make it to my interview, understandably due to an emergency of some kind.
I was under the impression that I interviewed well enough and took it as a good sign that the hiring manager gave me her card and contact information. Of course, I continued to follow up with both the Hiring Manager and HR, persistently and unobtrusively. However, a whole month passed by without any kind of response until I was sent a boilerplate two-line rejection from HR. Just saying, I think it could have been much better for both parties to come to this conclusion a lot sooner, and to at least respond in a timely manner to applicants who did not make the cut.
