That sounds like the way we do it... well, except for the three hours in one day part. We usually break the 3 hours over 3 different phases.

I don't know if this place is anything like us, though, in an important way. Large interview committees (5+) are a bad sign with us. It's a sign that there are a lot of people with their fingers in the pot, doing what people do with the pot.

Two HR types, two developer/leads, two managers (the direct report, and his comrade on the other side of a pair of teams), and a vice-president.

No more than 2 at a time (the two devs, otherwise it was all one-on-one). The HR segments were fairly generic and short "here's what we're doing today, here's the paperwork", etc.

it wasn't bad. Just intense. I think they really want to make sure the fit is good and to make sure that I know something about how the company operates (it seems fairly supportive in many ways, but there's an emphasis on rapid response). COuld be an interesting place to work. On the whole, probably the other posting is a slightly better position (likely pays more), but this one is probably long term more interesting.

Of course, I don't know if either place will want me yet.
