Hmmm. Well, from the IT side of things and living in St.Paul, MN, it took me 5 months to go through there hiring process and it all depends on the level the role is responsible for. You WILL/SHOULD be working with your recruiter then entire process. Do not go around him/her. Heard bad stores of recruit's doing that and getting Null'd out of the system. I filled out for my role on travelers career site, took the assessment, and was called 3 weeks later by a Travelers Recruiter. Not a heavy interview, just another assessment of your skills and where you want to go. My resume was then sent to the hiring manager and it lingered for 3 months and was contacted by the recruiter they were interested. I was phone interviewed by that groups senior staff (the weeding out period would say the hardest part as they don't ask you how to generally mow the lawn, but how the lawn mower works, effort, etc). roughly 2 hours. Was given a positive experience and it was sent to my future boss. Sat for 3 weeks and was interviewed (1 hour). At this point, since the senior staff did the technical interview, my boss did the team, personality and VERY small tech questions. Passed. Was informed by the recruiter that I was going to be flown out to Hartford, CT and interview by the team. Now team means many things, but team mean't this (in phases). interview 1 - Senior Staff again, Interviews 2-5 - leadership staff (at my boss level, which was 4 interviews in all and 30-40 minutes each), interview 6 - Senior Leadership. Stayed in Hartford for 24 hours and was flown out. Was offered there after. Please note to all: DO NOT LIE ABOUT PAST ROLES/RESPONSIBILITES, TITLES or ANYTHING else in your application. They WILL background check everything and if there is one error or lie detected, your out. Knew a few who misrepresented their info and they caught and released.

Depends on the area that you work in and location. In the Orlando on site office, office hours are 6am to 6pm, but there is the work from home option. I personally work 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday. I started off working Sundays (6am-3pm) and 4 weekdays (9am-6pm). Hope this helps.

Yes. And I will point out here that others have posted elsewhere. Do NOT lie. When filling out your application, be honest with your job title, role/responsibilities, salary/wage, and education. You would be surprised to hear that a lot of disqualified applicants failed the process because they added $5 to their previous role. Just be honest, enter your content and you should be golden. Also, they go through a 3 party background check company.
