My dept does not have a collective ranking going into a new stage. (We generally don't do skype interviews, but wouldn't if we did, and don't going into campus visits.) Individual committee members may have views but we don't attempt to assemble beyond who should get to the next stage.

Not much to add on the second question.

We don't have a ranking going into Skype or even campus visits. In short, some of us tend to have favorites, but no formal ranking is required or asked of members of the committee. We simply discuss which 10-12 people should be invited for a Skype interview, and then which 3 people we should invite to campus.

At least at my institution, if you get invited for a Skype interview you have just as much chance as anyone else.
