Work with professionals in their respective medical specialties, the research facilities are fantastic.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Shriners Hospitals For Children (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2015.
I applied for the position in March 2015 and within about a week heard from a representative working at one of the city's larger advertising agencies, which had been contracted to help with the hiring process. We set up a time for a phone interview.
We had a pleasant conversation. I asked the rep when Shriners intended to have the position filled, and she "ideally as soon as possible." She hoped to have in-person interviews set up by the end of the week, with a final two or three ultimately selected to meet the hospital's head administrator. In her response to my thank-you, she wrote, "I’ll keep you posted on next steps."
She never did. Wondering if I'd made the cut for an in-person interview, I sent her an email a few days later asking her if any decisions had been made, but I never received a response. However, about three weeks later she reposted the same position on LinkedIn.
Apparently neither I nor any or any of the other candidates who submitted credentials in the first sweep quite had quite met Shriners' criteria, despite the need to fill the position "as soon as possible."
Three months after my initial application, I still have no communication from either the agency or Shriners regarding whether the position has been filled. There's no way to log into Shriner's candidate system to determine status.
