    Was standard loop. Was friendly. What they had advertised for was different from the role they were searching to fill. The phone interview went well. The panel interview was more revealing, provided why they were interested in filling the role. The panel folks were forthcoming.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position starting of June and received an email from the recruiter end of June. I was first called for Business process analyst then the recruiter thought I was a good match for project manager then after one day he sent me another job description for business analyst. I interviewed for business analyst in July by a panel of interviewers and everyone asking me similar questions. It was not organized and post the interview I waited for one week and thought of emailing the HR how ever the HR never responded and I never heard from them for more then a month now. Very unprofessional and inexperienced staff

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Seattle, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty basic, They call you to do a basic phone screen and interview, then a few days later they call to set up an in person interview. From submitting application the process maybe takes 3 weeks max. The interviewers were very friendly. And i would say the best part is that they update your status on line pretty fast.So before they even email you about your status its up online.
