You never really know. I applied for a job and didn’t hear back until two months later. I was hired after a interview.
Current employees who want to transfer, have a much shorter wait time.

It was pretty quick. About 2 weeks after I sent in my resume I got a call to come in for an interview. The first day I interviewed with H.R., 2 managers and a person who would be a co-worker. That first interview was only about 2-1/2 hours. My phone rang about an hour after I left the first interview asking if I could come back the next morning to interview with a department head. I obliged the next morning. This 2nd interview lasted about 1-1/2 hours. I interviewed with the dept head as well as one of the managers again. I was also given a tour. This 2nd interview lasted about 1-1/2 to 2 hours. At the end of the 2nd interview they asked if I was available in the next day or two to meet with a regional director. I met with the regional director 2 days later. So this was my 3rd interview with D-H in a 4-day period. The 3rd interview with the regional director was short and easy. Only 45 minutes. Later that day they contacted me for references. On the 6th day after the first interview I received a job offer. I accepted and started 2 weeks later. They do perform a complete back-ground check as well as a medical review. But any responsible employer would and should do those things. It has been a fun place o work. In general people are great. The place is busy and the pace on some days is very fast, but I enjoy it that way. My manager and all of the people above me have treated me tremendously. And my co-workers are fun and friendly (and hard workers focused on great patient care). I would recommend you give D-H a try.

Typically about 1-2 months. Apply, then you will be emailed/ called about doing either phone interview and possibly in person as well. If offered a position you'll then have to pass physical and drug screening. Upon passing that you'll be hired.

It is about a 4 week process plus orientation that is ALWAYS done at the Lebanon NH center, so you may have to spend a day traveling.

You first meet with a human resource member
then you go to a round table and meet with several managers of several different departments. You interview with them.
Then human resources calls you with which managers believe you'd be a good fit.
You job shadow in each department, then let human resources know what you thought. If you decided to take a position within the company you take a drug test. Once the drug test is passed, you go through a week long orientation, then after that you start working in your department.

It was a relatively quick process. They call you up, give you your initial interview, call you back within a week or two. You go in for your drug test and start within the next couple weeks.
