I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Kansas Department of Health and Environment (Topeka, KS).
Applied online, emailed applicable documents to HR representative and was then contacted by the Section Lead two weeks later to set up an interview. Interviewed onsite at the Curtis building a week later, the interview panel consisted of the Section Lead and two other senior scientists. The interview team was very easy going and easy to talk to. The actual interview consisted of 30 pre printed questions pertaining very directly to the job, with only one vague "what are your strengths" like question and lasted about an hour and a half. I was told after the interview that a decision would be made by the end of the month (two weeks from then). After about a week and a half, I was contacted by the Section Lead and offer the position.
