I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hospital Corporation of America (Nashville, TN).
This was by far the most mentally exhausting interview process I've ever been through. I started with an HR screening phone call followed by a lengthier call with one of the hiring directors. When I passed those typical hurdles, I came onsite for a half-day interview exercise with a large panel of individuals. At the start of the day, I was put in a room with a stand-alone laptop and a case study description. The case study involved a program with several projects and the challenges within it. The first exercise was to read the case study and present an executive briefing that lays out your plan (the executives are played by the large panel of individuals). The second was a personnel exercise and the third was a communication exercise, both dealing with examples from the case study. I had 3-4 hours to prep for these exercises before the panel came in. I think this is a suitable, albeit intense, interview for someone who is a project manager looking to move up. I don't think it's a suitable exercise for someone who has already been a program manager level at another company.
