It strikes me the same as universities when it comes to Deans/Provosts and so on: They are so far up their own ass about how important they are that they have to make a huge show out of the hiring process. Thing is, if they did any real research and consideration on it they'd realize that it isn't useful. You can only get so much info from interviews, at some point you have to take the plunge and see how it goes.

It's just one of my pet peeves since the University does it as well (for some positions) and it doesn't help make sure they people you hire are perfect, it just satisfies the institutional ego that we are so important there's no possible way we could make up our mind in a reasonable amount of time.

Way I see it, three interviews are the absolute MAX: One phone, second in person, and a third followup in person if there's some question or an extremely tight choice. Past that you are just wanking off.
