Panel interview, very informal, and friendly. They make you feel comfortable immediately walking into the door, especially if you are already working for the company (because you already know the panel that is interviewing you). Interviews typically last 15-20 minutes maximum, unless you have questions, and or give more information about yourself. Interview consist of around 4 questions that are very generic about Leadership, or the position you are applying for.

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hitachi (Harrodsburg, KY) in November 2013.
It was a somewhat relaxed panel interview. I had just worked a 12 hour shift and drove for an hour to get there. I was early and waited 20 minutes for the interview. By that time I was really tired and decided that I didn't really care if I got the job or not because already had one. I think this mind frame helped a lot with not being nervous.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi (Berea, KY) in June 2012.
3 interviews, basic questions for my position. One phone interview, two on-site interviews. Met with my direct supervisor, her manager and the HR manager. The questions were easy and I could tell that I had more experience and a higher skill set than those that interviewed me. If I didn't need a job to keep my family alive, I would have kept looking.
