The interview I was in took about an hour and a half. I told this executive manager that I was on my lunch hour, but that didnt seem to matter. They will check your credit and question you about it. When they are mass hiring they will make you wait up to two weeks for your start date.
Maybe a month after background checks and employment screenings
