I worked at Ziba Design full-time (More than 5 years)
I have very few negative things to say about Ziba. I left a couple of years ago, and without a doubt still carry a lot of the learnings I had from the incredible people there.
Ziba got a new CEO who in some ways destroyed the culture of the place. The new leadership established since, made some questionable decisions that forced a lot of incredible people out.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ziba Design (Portland, OR).
Fantastic interview process. 3 stages. Skype / phone with senior interaction designers, Skype / phone call with head of the IxD dept, and finally an onsite interview that lasts all day. The onsite was the best part of the interview because you get to speak with as many people in the IxD department and any other person that works at Ziba. Even though you might have to present your work, the interactions were more conversations about your process instead of a formal critique / presentations.
