It truly depends on the type of position you are interviewing for. Some positions involve a phone screen and single interview, while others may need multiple phone interviews, Skype/video interviews, and in-person interviews. The number of candidates and manager availability can also impact the timing a great deal. Our recruiting team works very hard to keep the process moving along and qualified candidates informed.

I received and email 2-4 days after applying to arrange a phone interview. Scheduled and completed phone interview. The next day an email was received to schedule in person interview. In Person interview was done and 33min after leaving an offer was made and accepted. An email was received later the same day that orientation would be 21 days as long as references and background checked out which of course they did!! So from start to finish 28days for me!
