I have been working at UC Davis Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)
Excellent patient care, fascinating science, intelligent and committed faculty, great benefits.
Very bureaucratic, things move extraordinarily slow, change resistant, leaders that don't walk the talk.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at UC Davis Medical Center (Sacramento, NE) in September 2015.
I applied for over 50 positions of which I was well qualified for and after two years, I obtained an interview. It seems like the process for getting an interview is similar to the state of California in that it's a numbers game and they hire internally first and it's basically a CYA purpose to have externals interview. I know I was experienced to do the job as it would be a lot less responsibility than my current classification; however, by the time I got home they had told me I was not going to be invited to the next round of interviews even though they were still interviewing. Also, they will call you and act as if they are getting information about your skills, but it's really a phone interview so be careful when they contact you for an interview, you may blow your opportunity and not know it. It seems like they aren't diverse in the staff as much as they are the professionals, but maybe just the experience from the department I interviewed.
