I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Washington State University in June 2013.
Interview Details –
First a basic check from a friend of the interviewer to determine if I understood some basic concepts of programming. Then to see if I could propose potential solutions to a primary task related to the job.
Second was with the people doing the hiring. These people knew what they wanted, but they didn't have any programming background, so questions were very open ended, and they asked that I teach them a basic concept of programming. From there hiring was quickly done.
Interview Question – The only difficult question was one related to the field. How do you match up strings that overlap? The answer I provided didn't really answer the question, but was designed to see if I could understand a potential solution. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. They told me how much I would get paid, and I could either accept it or decline it.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Washington State University in October 2012.
Interview Details – My interview was laid-back and non-threatening, but did include very technical questions. The people involved included my new manager, a soon-to-be colleague, and other members of the tech team. Each of them were fully prepared with relevant questions, geared both toward my working knowledge of software development and my views on employment in the field.
Interview Question – I was given a somewhat mathematical software "problem" to solve. I do not remember the exact details, but it involved a good amount of interpretation as to what the best approach would be to find a solution that both produced accurate results and accomplished the (somewhat vague) objectives. While proving to be difficult, this problem was an excellent example of problems actually found on the job, and sparked a good deal of discussion between myself and the people interviewing me.

Negotiation Details – There was very little negotiation, because it is a state organization, so has rigid rules involving pay and benefits.
