I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nationwide Children's Hospital in January 2014.
Interview Details – I initially replied to a posting on LinkedIn. I received an email asking me to fill out the full application online which was very lengthy and repetitive. Once that was complete I was emailed a short questionnaire to fill out with questions related to my experience and the position. After that was completed I was invited in for a 1:1 interview with the Dir of Employment Services. The interview lasted approximately 45 minutes. I was told that she was wrapping up interviews within the week and would let me know a decision either way. After three weeks with no contact, I sent an email to which I received a quick reply saying that they moved forward with a different candidate.

Interview Details – I had an initial phone interview after the connection had been established by my PhD mentor. We then had a casual interview during which we discussed my research experience, career trajectory, interests, skills, etc. I had already been working for another PI in Research, so we also discussed what I was currently doing and what I was hoping to get from a new position in terms of content, schedule, and tuition funding. Several more emails, phone calls, and informal meetings happened before the university worked out joint funding with the research department I was going to work with.
Interview Question – What do you want to do when you finish your PhD? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Several meetings, emails, etc between myself, the PI, and my PhD mentor to work out a funding option, since the hospital pays for my PhD stipend.

I then moved on to move to the department that I worked in to do an interview with people who were on my team. They were incredibly nice and genuinely seemed interested in my work experience. I felt comfortable the entire time. They had other candidates to interview after me, so I was offered the job about 2 weeks later and accepted.

Interview Details – I was considering a salary position after being out on my own consulting as a software architect and manager for over 5 years. When I showed up at HR it was like they were herding cattle. When the receptionist pointed me to the no cell phone sign I promptly left the building to complete my conversation. The meeting with the HR person for the specific IT department went like this.
IT HR: What are you looking to make?
ME: What is the salary range?
IT HR: I can only tell you the bottom of the range is 56,000
ME: That's less than I was making in 1999 (10+ yrs ago). I'm over six figures now.
(at this point the HR person was ready to end the interview had I not said...)
ME: Why don't I meet the team and talk to them for a bit and find out what type of things they are working on.
(at which point I had a great conversation about the impact and opportunity of the Internet on Healthcare, and mobile technologies, with a couple middle managers for 1.5 hours. During the conversation it became clear they wanted an ETL/database monkey and the position was not for me, but it was a nice conversation none the less.)
