I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BNP Paribas (New York, NY) in November 2013.
Applied through career services on campus. One phone interview lasting about 30 minutes with two directors. Mostly behavioral. After that, went on to the superday at the New York office. It consisted of four interviews, all 2 on 1. A few technical questions involving derivatives, but nothing too crazy. Received the offer the same day.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BNP Paribas (San Francisco, CA) in October 2013.
I was contacted by their recruiter for the position. I went through: 1) A screening telephone interview with HR rep. 2) Telephone interview with hiring manager. 3) In person interview with hiring manager. My last interview with the the hiring manager seemed to go very well. At the end of the interview I was told that one last call would be setup to speak with a division VP. I never heard back from the hiring manager or HR rep. After two weeks I emailed the HR rep and have not received a response to date. This is the worst possible interview process I've had in my career.

- One guy from structured finance with PhD from MIT bombarded me with brain teasers. Most of them were typical ones that you would expect to find from a brain teaser question guide. The most difficult/unexpected question that I got from this interview was when an MD asked me to walk through the steps of dealing with an unsatisfied client. Other than that... the rest were the typical behavioral and markets questions. Answer Question
