I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Cigna in June 2013.
Interview Details – I was interviewed by the staffing company by phone (two interviews). They contacted their client (Cigna) and I was interviewed by the two senior employees who made the hiring decision. The interview was comprised of technical questions and I was also evaluated to see if I would be a good fit as part of their team.

I applied online and the process took 9 months - interviewed at Cigna.
Interview Details – I had 6 phone interviews before they invited me on-sote for the first time. I go no heads up on who would be there or there titles and responsibilities. In fact the hiring manager wasn't there. So after 4 more weeks of no communication they invited me back again for another round of face to face interviews. In the end I wasn't offered the position and blame it on not getting the right information about the position or the people I was interviewing with. The first time I was interviewing with people I would be managing, the next time I was told they were peers but they judged me assuming they were executives.
