    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at The University of Kansas in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had one interview. There were about 4 other candidates being interviewed. It took the better part of an afternoon, because I was interviewed by multiple teams of people. Due to the number of people involved, most participants didn't talk much or ask many questions. I got a good sense of how collaborative the environment there was.
