I applied online and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Seattle University.
Interview Details – An application is submitted through the HR website. They took about a month to respond. A brief phone interview -- about 30 minutes took place. I then heard back about a day later that I had been selected for an in-person interview. The in-person interview was about 3 hours and involved group and individual sessions with would-be coworkers, supervisor, director, and other university employees.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Seattle University in November 2011.
Interview Details – 1. Fill out and submit an application
2. Interview appointment
This is an on campus job so the process was pretty simple. I filled out an application available at the front desk of the office then submited it at the front desk. The following week I received an interview appointment. I realized from the email that the environment was pretty casual. On the day of interview, however, i dress semi formal. My boss was dressing business casually. She was very friendly and we talked about how I can use my teaching ability to help other students with their academic goals.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Seattle University in May 2012.
Interview Details – It was a 30 minute interview. They asked me the general questions about myself, advising style, goals and the populations i have worked with. There were four interviewers. Everyone was very friendly. I even was able to receive feedback on my interview from one of the interviewers and I usually never get feedback when I ask.
They were also very prompt with telling me I did not get the offer and I appreciate that. I think it was less than a week.
