I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at ecentricarts (Toronto, ON).
The first interview is a sit down with management and team members. Job-specific questions are asked. Topics covered are usually technologies and concepts that you'd be faced with such as REST, as well as a few things mentioned in your resume. The managers are very smart so if you don't know something just be honest because you won't be able to fake it.
Second interview is with a larger portion with the team and covers some code review.
