I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital (Palo Alto, CA) in March 2015.
They held panel interviews of 8 interviewers to 4 candidates. They were very friendly when we walked in the room and kept it light and funny. However, it seems like some of them have more say than others. Also, looking around the room (and the units), there seems to be more people of Caucasian descent than any others. There was some Latino/Hispanic employees, but hardly any Asians, and I don't think I saw any African Americans. I know they aren't allowed to discriminate, but I have to say I definitely felt discouraged. Lo and behold, I didn't get the job.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital (Palo Alto, CA) in June 2014.
I did some of my student rotations here and knew the staff at the clinic and was asked to apply. I submitted my online application, including a resume, which included a lengthy personality questionnaire. Then I got a call from HR to set up an interview time. The panel interview was with the manager, person with the position behing hired for, and other interdisciplinary members. When I got the offer, I had to do a occupational health screening at their facility which included immunization review/administration, blood work, urine test, and physical. I also had to complete a background check.
