Longest/shortest job interview you ever had?

My shortest was under 10m, i came in for the wrong function via a recruiter.

My longest is 135m the guy just kept on talking and talking and talking and....

    Longest was 17 interviews over 2 months with Neudesic dicking me around over a director position (fuck those guys).

    Shortest was when I walked in and the entire team was on the phone having conversations in a language I didn't speak and was tacitly ignoring my presence. I pretty much wrote myself off as not a culture fit.

    Longest, 90 minutes.

    @SortOfTested multiple interviews? I'm missing out in life. I've never gone pass the first one.

    longest: ~3 weeks (multiple interviews) wall-time, ~3-4hours actual interview time.

    Wasn't a good thing, they were just dragging it out to try and land a big enough fish to justify the salary.
