I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Phoenix Children's Hospital in July 2015.
Interviewed with supervisor at the location at which position was open. Interview was July 1st, however, since their training/orientation starts every other Monday, I wasn't able to start until July 27th. I was offered the position right away. I interviewed at 8am and I received the job offer by 4pm.
