I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Maxim Healthcare Services (San Mateo, CA) in January 2012.
First was a phone conversation with the regional recruiter. He asked me about my work background, my education, and what I already knew about the position. As long as you can hold a conversation this call should not be a problem. Next came a face to face with the local branch manager and his senior recruiter of that office. We talked about my prior work experience and how it related to this job. I could tell he wanted me to correlate my past experiences with what I was to do at this job. In this position, you work very closely with a small group of people. I knew that I had to show a little more of my friendly personality so I could mesh well with him and the team. I had to sell them on me. Once you've 'passed', next comes the final interview. The final interview will either be over the phone or face to face with the Area VP. My experience was face to face as he happened to be visiting the office. This was by far the easiest step. I could tell he just wanted to meet me and make sure I wasn't a terrible fit. The decision was made on the last interview on whether or not they were going to move forward with me. Final interview lasted all but 10 minutes. Previous interview was about 2 hours as I was introduced to the office and met individually with each of them.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Maxim Healthcare Services (Palm Desert, CA) in January 2009.
I was contacted by a recruiter based on my monster.com resume. I met with several people the first day and everything seemed to go well with the first interviewer. The second female interviewer wouldn't let me finish a sentence. I was however invited back for a second interview. I met with the female manager again and my interview lasted only a few minutes when she then asked me to come to a third interview with her regional manager in a city over an hour away. I met with the regional manager who was completely resistant to my background and personality from the beginning. I have never met an interviewer before who came into a meeting with a perspective employee with such a closed mind. I have no idea why they jerked me though the trouble of three interviews if they had such doubts of my fit for the job in the first place. I received a polite and impersonal rejection email a week later. Oh well.

The process took a week. I interviewed at Maxim Healthcare Services in July 2011.
First was a phone interview. The recruiter on the phone was very friendly and told me everything what I was expected to do if I got the job. The second was a 1:1 interview with an accounts manager. I was expecting a thoroughly easy interview but when I got there, the interview was a breeze. The accounts manager didn't ask any general interview questions. Only asked me questions of my previous work experience. The interview last 15-20 minutes and asked me to call him. I called him and he decided to give the position to a different candidate who had more qualifications. Overall, the interview is really easy and basically chooses people who have prior work experience that fits their needs.
