I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
Interview Details – Applied online and did not hear back for a few weeks. Followed up by e-mail to lab coordinator. Scheduled phone interview a month after applying online. Asked basic questions: "post-graduation plans? Long-term goals? Why our lab?" Was then asked to come in for an in-person interview. Was greeted by the coordinator who interviewed me for half an hour then interviewed by two other lab technicians who are currently working in the lab. Very friendly and inviting. Asked lots of questions regarding scenarios that can occur in the lab, calculating concentrations, etc.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in November 2011.
Interview Details – The first interview was with the hiring manager, the second interview was with the team, and the third interview was with others with whom the position would work closely. The total number of interviews seemed extremely excessive for a simple contract position. Everyone was nice enough, but some personalities seemed belligerent and unfamiliar with legally acceptable interview questions.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in April 2012.
Interview Details – Submitted my application online due to internal employee referral, receive phone call next day to schedule phone interview. Phone interview was casual and had the usual preliminary questions. Received call back later to schedule in person approximately 7 days. In-person interview consisted of 2 department employees and was somewhat casual. Honest and frank discussion about expectations, environment and growth potential. Was told about next steps and had a delayed response in communication (more than 10 days). When I did receive a phone call it was to say their process is taking longer than expected and that I should be hearing back "soon". Have yet to receive that communication.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in February 2012.
Interview Details – The phone interview lasted for 30 minutes. The in person interview lasted for about 15 minutes. HR asked two very broad questions that did not allow me to go into detail about my work experiences. It seemed like they had a candidate already in mind because I felt rushed. Apply here if you want to waste your time. A better recruiting and interviewing process needs to be implemented in HR. This was the worst interview experience ever.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in February 2011.
Interview Details – They were very respectful, informative and straight forward. I very much enjoyed meeting their HR/Recruiting staff, as well as the team members. They have a very nice campus and benefits-- I think anyone would be lucky to work there. I did turn them down, but will potentially apply there again in the future if I am job hunting again.

Interview Details – 1. Phone interview.
2. Day one, 1:1 interview with manager.
3. Day two, 1:1 interview with P.I.
Interview asked everything that was listed in the job requirements. Never did they ask "how do you handle personality conflicts?" To me, that's a red flag.
Negotiation Details – Was able to negotiate salary. I asked what the base salary was and worked from there.
