I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at University of South Dakota (Vermillion, SD) in March 2015.
They host an interview day and you get the chance to meet the faculty and current students. A lot of the day is informal meetings with students and faculty, then there is a time for 1:1 interviews with professors. Throughout the day, they are checking to see if you "fit well" in the program. After the formal day ends, there is a potluck, then an after party with the students. It gets to be a very long, stressful day.

Because I was overqualified for the position, I asked to start at the top of the pay scale (which I was granted) with the promise that the position would be later upgraded (which it never was).
