I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Lazard in February 2011.

Interview Details – Went in without much of a corporate finance background, and got peppered with quantitative financial questions despite saying up front that my classes were mainly just economics. So kind of a struggle to keep going through all these concepts I hadn't heard of before.

The process took 1 week - interviewed at Lazard in October 2010.

Interview Details – A lot of fit and mental math. Definitely need to know the basics of accounting and finance. They really want to know why IB because they expect you to stay on for 2 years. Very nice guys in general. Really have to show a passion for what you are applying to.

Interview Question – A lot of mental math. Be able to take percentage of numbers and quickly multiply.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Lazard in September 2012.

Interview Details – Online application along with 4 questions requiring 250 word answers.

Then online Numerical Test.

Then online Verbal Reasoning Test.

Then Invited to AC... Resit Numerical Test. Case study test - Compile an overview on a company given a lot of information. And a 2-1 HR interview, why lazard, etc.

Then Invited to another AC this time with 5 other candidates....Lunch, followed by a group assessment, followed by a presentation. Group assessment - everyone was given an aquisition target and the group had to decide which was the best. Presentation - give presentation where you are IB, pitching to a client.

Then invited back for last round, two 1-1 interviews, more fit interviews rather than technical.
