I applied through college or university and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Better Business Bureaus.
Interview Details – Met employer at a career fair at my college. Had a short interview, nothing really formal, (major, background, why you think you'd be a good fit for the internship) and was contacted about a month later by the employer for a second in person formal interview at the firm. Interview lasted about 2 hours. Consisted of basic and more in depth questions that required you to think outside of the box and really apply what you've done in your past and how it is relevant experience to the work force. There was a writing sample evaluation as well
Interview Question – Have you ever experienced a situation in which you helped someone solve a problem but they didn't understand what you were trying to convey to them? How did you deal with the situation? Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Better Business Bureaus in September 2013.
Interview Details – They were listed in the real yellow pages. I called to see if they were hiring. I was told to fax a resume and follow up the following week. When I called back the following week I was referred to one of the long term employees. She said she would review the information I submitted and get back in touch with me. She later contacted me and scheduled an interview with herself and the Chief Executive Officer. Her name is Cynthia Albert. She provided specific directions to reach the offices in downtown New Orleans as well as a designated parking space. I arrived on time for the interview. She met me at the parking space and we walked to the offices. Once we arrived at the office she asked that I be seated and she then went to get the other individual we then went to the board room for the interview. I provided the interviewers with copies of three update resumes. One which showed my work history in sales, one which showed my work history in human resources, and one which showed my work history in volunteer work. I was asked specific questions and provided a history of the company and the job duties. Ms. Albert also said that a plan was underway to relocate the offices to the Metairie area. Both interviewers were knowledgable and easy to speak with. After the interview, they thanked me for taking the time to meet and that they would get back in touch.

Prior to being selected for an interview, I was asked to fill out a questionnaire, which was used to further narrow down the applicants.
I was interviewed by two people. Both were very pleasant. It was easy to talk to them, primarily because they didn't use a scripted set of questions. This allowed us to really get to know each other and for them to ask questions that fit withint the flow/context of the conversation.
They also gave me plenty of time to ask my own questions, and they answered them thoroughly.
They plan on hiring someone within 2 weeks or so, and I am awaiting a call back.
Some questions I was asked:
What would you do in the first 45 days?

Several days after my reply, I received a phone call from the hiring manager who conducted a brief phone interview. I was asked to explain why I wanted to work at the BBB and to tell a little bit about myself. At the end of the phone call, I was invited for an in-person interview the following week.
The in-person interview was conducted by a panel of two managers (the hiring department manager and a neighboring department manager) who took turns asking from a predetermined list of questions including:

They explained a little about the benefits they offer (PTO, Holidays, Insurance, Tuition re-imbursement, etc.) and seemed proud of all they had to offer. They asked me if I had any questions for them.
They explained that they had many people to interview, but that all candidates would hear back from them via e-mail or telephone. They did not plan on conducting 2nd interviews and said that they had the power to make hiring decisions without any input from above them.
They were very warm and friendly, and tried to make me feel at eas in their impressive conference room - which included the most comfortable over-sized office chairs I've ever tried! They even gave me bottled water as I came in.
The interviewers seemed to have on very cheerful poker faces, smiled a lot, and said "Thank you" after each of my replies.
