Report answer

I believe the hiring process is much longer than when I applied. I had only 1 interview with 2 of the department heads. I believe it takes quite a bit longer now; have to pass through the recruiter, and then two to three interviews.

Takes about 2 weeks from what I recall. The first week would be a phone interview and then an in person interview. The next week would be Orientation and SAP training before even getting out on the floor.
