I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at St. Jude Medical (Sunnyvale, CA) in June 2012.
Contacted by HR after two week applied online through company's website. Very brief talk with HR, then scheduled a phone interview with hiring manager. The phone interview was mostly previous experience and resume, no hardcore technical question. On-site lasted a half day with five people from principals to director. Most technical questions are hardware like opamp, rf, analog circuit. They wanted very detailed solutions and also cared about how quick you can solve.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day – interviewed at St. Jude Medical (Sunnyvale, CA) in November 2009.
This is a very conservative company. They want you to be working on old technologies and even the upper management agreed on this.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at St. Jude Medical (Sunnyvale, CA) in July 2008.
Was called on the phone by the head of clinical engineering, given a phone interview, and one week later flown out to be interviewed by everyone in the division (about 9 people, one at a time). The process took the entire day, and most of the questions were about why I wanted to do a Ph.D. I believe they had already decided to give me the offer because of my adviser at my University, and the success they had with a previous employee who had worked under him.
