I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Owens Community College in August 2010.
Interview Details – Online application with resume and cover letter. Also, I was asked to submit transcripts from each of the colleges I attended. Within a week of completing online application, I was called in for a one on one interview with a department head. She interviewed me in her office on the Toledo campus.
