I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at OpenText (Reading, England) in October 2012.
Had applied directly to the company via a linkedin ad. The Recruitment Team contacted me within 2 days, had a fairly long chat on current work (non technical), compensation etc. Was told that they will contact again if needed.
Got a call from the Recruitment team again (within a few days I believe) and attended a face-to-face interview with the manager of the team. The interview was at their office, went for about an hour and a half. It was more of a casual conversation about the work I have done, rather than a strict formal interview - and this really made a big difference.
Got a call from the Recruitment team again (within a week) and attended another face-to-face interview with the a member of the team, the manager and the HR. Was told to do a presentation on a recent deployment I had done with emphasis on architecture, was told to showcase technical documentation or articles I have written. The HR had some standard questions like the motivation behind joining the company etc. The manager also asked some interesting "people" questions about my interaction with customers. All in all, the interview lasted about an hour and half, and went quite well.
Got a call from the Recruitment team within a few days and we discussed about offers. Exactly a month after I applied, they made an offer.
- Though not unexpected by any means, there were questions on 'generalizing' my life, which I am not good at ("How would your colleagues describe you"?) answering. The technical part was very straightforward - there were no challenges at all, and the questions centred around architecture (eg: Extended ECM), deployment methods, lessons learned, modules used, work done on customization etc. Answer Question
Had an initial call to discuss numbers. When I told what I was expecting, I got a straight answer that they wont be interested in going forward. Was asked a number below which I will say NO to the offer and was offered exactly what I put there.
On hindsight, I should stuck to a higher number, but hey, hindsight doesnt carpe diem!

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks – interviewed at OpenText (Waterloo, ON (Canada)).
Clunky process, like the left hand didn't know what the right was doing. Two apparently accidental rejection form emails from HR, followed by a request for an on-site first round interview.
In person interview consisted of separate panels of two interviewers. One technical, checking into experience and domain knowledge. The other less technical, more of a Q&A session with discussions and answers to the typical "how have you handled conflict in your career", and "how have you tried to improve your abilities".
After the interview process came a fairly thorough background screening process.
- Give an example of a disagreement you had with a co-worker, and how it was handled or resolved. Answer Question
One offer, take it or leave it.

I applied through college or university. The process took a day – interviewed at OpenText (Jaipur, Rajasthan (India)) in November 2014.
It was a 3 step process in which we had a normal online test of aptitude which included some questions related to quants, logic, and english.
After that it was a coding round which had 3 questions to be done in any of our preferred language. They were of a normal level and not too difficult.
After that it was a final technical round in which interviewer was a cool person and he asked some basics of oops and 2 codes to be written in front of him just as a purpose of checking our problem solving.
After each round shortlisting was done and finally out of 100 student around 15 were selected.
Overall it was a easy process.. Which took a day.
No negotiations were made. Salary was already told to us.
