    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Stanford Children's Health (Palo Alto, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very long (over 6 months!) and very unorganized. I had a phone screening, an odd phone interview with the hiring manager on a weekend, followed by 4 in person interviews and a secondary application. I actually never heard back from the recruiter or hiring manager despite following up with them several times.
