I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at OHSU in April 2013.
Interview Details – Took them almost 2 months to get back to me. They schedule you for a phone interview first then if selected they bring you in to do a group panel style interview. On a hiring note, they usually only select OHSU employees for 1st 7days of an opening and have to have a good reason to hire externally. They asked the typical interview questions, team oriented kind. They will try to often you 1 step up from what you're currently making but they're usually no drug test to take unless its for a specific position. The background check it done through a 3rd party service they verifies your wages, dates of employment, etc. Benefits are good...kinda like a HMO because you get the best coverage by using their facilities. High co-pays though $25 each OV, $200 yearly deductible is good.
Interview Question – How do you deal with drama and gossip? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I told the supervisor I was making more than I actually was, so she gave me more than my previous job. But when I did the background check to verify the information I put the correct amounts so when HR got the results it would match up.

This is for OHSU in Portland Oregon.
Hiring managers will vary and are the immediate supervisors in my experience; mine weren't up to speed on how to do hiring and ended up calling me months after I applied for the job. I interviewed for two different jobs at OHSU, both started out with a phone screen and then progressed to in-person interviews.
Culture on the academic side is pretty casual. Interview questions are not standard from job to job, so research about the lab or group who is offering the job moreso than overall OHSU company information. OHSU's website is large and the organizational structure can be confusing to a newbie.
