I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (Baltimore, MD) in August 2014.
Hard to find interviewer if you're unfamiliar with the campus and accurate directions were not given. Hard to find parking when you're unfamiliar with campus and be prepared to pay for it. They do validate but make sure you ask for a ticket. What to expect was not adequately explained such as shadowing or taking tours during the interview.

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (Baltimore, MD) in July 2014.
Applied online took at least 2 months before I heard back from anyone regarding an interview. First I received a phone call requesting when would be good to schedule an interview, and a few preliminary questions. Then I was asked to drive down to Baltimore for an in person interview. I met with the 2 main Doctors (PIs) and the research assistant I would potentially replace. One doctor was really interested in me and my experiences, and I felt like he seriously considered me for the position, but the other doctor seemed uninterested. I also clicked really well with the former research assistant. After the interview they told me all candidates would hear back by the end of the week, but in reality they sent out automated emails to the people who weren't offered the position. The automated email was super impersonal and hurts your pride a little bit, but I feel like trying to get into the medical profession in general can get very impersonal. The usually expect a 2-4 year commitment, but they don't mention that until the end of the interview and seeing as the position is grant funded the salary is not negotiable.

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (Baltimore, MD).
Though many years ago, I remember it as a straightforward process. I was hired as a new RN. Worked medical surgical for a few years and then changed departments. Hired within a couple of weeks. Big turnover on medical units. There were two interviews, as I recall, one with the recruiter and one with the unit manager.

The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (Baltimore, MD) in December 2010.
I applied on-line but never received a call back so I researched the name and contact information of the hiring manager. When I called to follow-up on my application, I was surprised at her response. She explained that she would not have even looked at my application and resume since due to the number of applicants and the costs associated with interviews they decided to only look at applicants from the local region (I lived in another state 10hrs away). When I offered to pay my own travel related costs if selected for an interview, she was impressed and decided to review my application and resume. I was later interview once via telephone for approximately 30 minutes. Subsequently, I was asked to travel to Baltimore for 2 panel interviews that included about 12 and 3 persons respectively. The larger panel included a cross functional panel of stake holders from the hospital departments including doctors, RNs and others. The smaller panel interview was clinical panel of my peers. My third and final interview was via Skype with the hiring managers VP. Everyone was polite and professional during the interview process. They made me an offer and after some negotiations, I accepted. I would advise future candidates to be prepared to answer behavioral questions in the interviews--the questions were standard.
