I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at University of Southern California in March 2009.
Interview Details – I sent in a cover letter and resume through a public policy job site and was called for a phone interview, then invited for an in-person interview with the director and project manager. The questions were straight-forward and I felt at ease, especially since the interviewers seemed a bit awkward themselves!
Negotiation Details – I had never negotiated before so I didn't ask for anything except for paid parking, which they could not give me - I later learned that they don't even give paid parking to faculty.
Very Easy Interview
