    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sun Microsystems (Aurora, CO) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Had phone screen two weeks after applying online. Follow-up one week later. Another phone interview happened 5 days after second phone interview. Finally had a live interview after 3 weeks. Seems like a slow process. Actual interview lasted 2 hours.
