Report answer

Your application is screened and filtered out through the recruiting department. From there, each department/manager has a different approach to the interview process. It also depends if it is a union or non-union position. In my experience, most managers like to do panel interviews which is exactly like it sounds. You are questioned by a panel of individuals (usually all who you would be working with in the position).
