I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at UPMC in July 2013.
Interview Details – I was hired by HR -- staff there took me to two floors (units) that were looking for new SNAs. I was shown around by the Nurse Manager of those units, and they asked me a few questions about how often I could work, if I thought I would be capable of the duties required of me for the unit, etc. Afterwards HR let me choose one of the two floors I liked better, and I went to that unit a week or so later for a second interview -- this was basically shadowing a milieu therapist and having them evaluate whether I could get along with the patients.
Interview Question – "Tell me about yourself." - Probably the only non-duties-specific question asked. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at UPMC in May 2013.
Interview Details –
The interview was for the UPMC Technology Development Center at the Bakery Square location. The center is used as the research and development area to pursue and bring new products to market. You will be involved with UPMC and individuals from companies that partner with UPMC to deliver these new products. This is a non-traditional corporate environment where one day you may work late in the evening while another you may have a shorter day to re-energize.
When you submit your interview it will be reviewed to see if it even remotely qualifies for an interview. This may not be too much of a worry for you as it seems the farm more people through than necessary. You will be introduced to the staff present and given an overview of the work that is performed at the center. The interview consists of a series of speed interviews where you need to sell yourself in the first 30 - 60 seconds and explain why you are a good fit for the job. Be prepared for this and you will repeat it for multiple people. After the first round the team will decide who merits more in-depth interviews. At the more in-depth interviews you will be probed for your technical knowledge and how well you know your material. Expect behavioral as well.
Initial contact was through e-mail followed by my personal call to the senior technical recruiter who was male and basically a speed talker. The technical recruiter should have scheduled a set amount of time to provide candidates more information. Not sure the speed talk was necessary but it gives you clues as to what to expect in the future. The recruiter was slightly rude near the end but as I mentioned this could have been avoided with a scheduled call.
Overall it seems interesting but in the end I did not pursue.

Interview Details – I applied online and received an email confirmation. I later was called and offered the opportunity to come in for an interview. When I arrive at the office, I interviewed with two people. The first was the senior level manager. This interview was very brief, and I was asked very general questions. The second interview was with the person that would have been my direct supervisor. He asked me the standard behavioral interview questions. The office seemed like a basic cubicle world. Being a large corporation, this is what you'd expect.
