I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at UCLA.

A short (20-30 minute) interview with many (eg. 11) people from the department. Each interviewer walks you to your next meeting. They provided a list of interviewers in advance and it helped to research them in advance to know what their individual research fields were.
