    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Seattle University in March 2015.

    Interview

    About a month and a half after I applied I got an email from the hiring manager asking if I was still interested. A week later she got back to me again and arranged a phone interview. It was only 30 minutes (no opportunity to go longer - she even gave me a 3 minute warning) and she very obviously had a standard set of questions she had to ask everyone. A couple days after that I was invited to a second round of interviews. This one took about 1.5 hours. First I interviewed with the hiring mgr and another mgr in the department for about an hour. They had a mix of situational and direct questions. Then I was walked over to another department where I met with a VP that I would also be working with. Two days later they checked my references. About 4 days after that she got back to me offering the job. It required a background check. No negotiations at all.
