Hiring committees take forever, huge resource waster. Physicians who could be treating patients waste time interviewing receptionists with several other highly compensated staffers just to ensure the applicant can regurgitate the narrative. Be prepared to make a presentation, go through several small group interviews and Q &A. If one person dislikes you, for any reason- real or imagined- the offer won’t come, so be ready for that. They don’t really respect an applicants time or energy.
A very long time. Some areas have hiring committees, even for hourly positions. They have like 4-6 people, set aside for several hours on multiple days, and then meet more to talk about who they want. The hiring manager does make the final decision, but it's quite resource intensive.
