I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Capital One in December 2011.
Interview Details – I had an over the phone interview followed by on site interviews with 3 different people. Each of my on site interviewers had a specific set of questions for me (Skills, behavioral etc) and they noted down the answers on the interview sheet.

Interview Details – Prior to switching to Taleo, one would submit a resume into the black hole that was their HR system and never hear back. Following the implementation of Taleo, I heard back from a recruiter within two weeks of submitting my resume. HR can be slow, but their is an initial HR screen. If you meet their requirements, they will schedule you to take an online exam. This exam will be very similar to a GMAT or GRE with elements from most of the sections.
Should you pass this exam, they will schedule a "power day" with you, which will consist of several job fit interviews, a behavioral interview, and a case interview. The case will be specific to your job title.
If you succeed expect an offer within a week, salary can be negotiable.
Negotiation Details – a bit lower than what I asked for, met in the middle.
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Capital One in August 2012.
Interview Details – The screening process took a long while (2+months) once I applied online. After the first recruiter call, there were 3 online assessments - verbal, numerical (both timed) and personality. The onsite interview was scheduled in a week. There are 4 interviews 45 min each - 2 behavioral (by IT managers/BSAs), 1 job fit (supposedly by the hiring manager and 1 case by a business person. Each interviewer has a question book and sticks to the same, jotting our answers as we speak. Typical behavioral questions ( 3 for each interview) are available in a Google search. It helps to be prepared with a few sample scenarios for these. Job fit questions are standard also - business vs technical requirement vs design with an example and functional vs non-functional, traceability matrix, testing support etc. My case was a problem to reduce the # of credit card welcome packets, with a critical path activity math exercise.
Capital one has a fabulous campus with demarcated interview rooms. My D-day had about 10 candidates. I was the only one in business casuals and everybody else were in suits.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Capital One in November 2010.
Interview Details – This was for a contract. Phone interview with 2 people - one was the direct manager; the other was a subject matter expert. They explained in detail the job, the tasks for the job and the expectations of the person in the role of the job. They then asked me detailed questions of my resume and some behavioral questions (what would you do if you had to tell your customer the project was late, how would you handle angry customers, etc). They liked my answers and I was offered the position the next day.
Reason for Declining – I told my current company (contract) and they made me an offer for full-time employment. I accepted that.
