I applied online – interviewed at INVISTA.
Their interview process is great! It is very thorough and makes you feel good knowing they take so much time to vet a person before offering them a position. There were 2 phone interviews followed by an onsite interview. The phone interviews are about an hour long and the onsite interview was a little more than half a day. The "official" interview questions are the standard situational questions. Other than that, very conversational interviews of just trying to get to know you more.
- Tell me about a time you had to get a lot of work done in a short amount of time. (Difficult because that is the nature of my job, so it was hard to give an example) Answer Question

Don't worry about being able to do the actual job or going over your qualifications in the interviews. They didn't ask a single question about my resume throughout the interview process. Be able to recount some tales of friendship and teamwork, and you'll be fine! Process took a few weeks.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at INVISTA in May 2012.
Got on-site interview approximately a month after two phone interviews with a HR person and the hiring manager. The on-site interview consisted of four 1-1 interviews and a plant tour which took half a day, starting from noon and ending around 4-4:30. That site in Texas does not have a good office area, more like a plant area.
