“I’m not sure if I’ve ever worked at a place that cares so much about the small things that make their employees happy. For example, there is always some fun activity going on in our communal area that exist simply to give employees a break and have fun.”

Advice to Management
Keep it up!
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Solstice (Chicago, IL).
I applied online in early 2016.
First I was given a phone call about a week later where I spoke to a recruiter who informed me about the company and went over my resume with me. The phone call was pleasant and very informative.
Next I was given assigned a simple mobile application to create over the weekend. It didn't take too long, but I had fun with it. The instructions were pretty clear and laid out a few suggestions on how to implement it.
After writing my app and sending it in, I was asked to come in for a few on-site interviews. They were a mix of both behavioral and technical questions, with a total of two interviews. The first put me with two developers, and the second had me interview with a single developer. Both were relatively casual and Solstice was very helpful and reliable throughout the process.
