I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Credit Suisse (Research Triangle Park, NC) in February 2012.
I first got an offer to interview at my school's office of career services. I interviewed with the one of the IT managers and a week later I was contacted and invited to the IT family expo where you basically network with people who work within the department to give you a better idea of what type of job you want to do. After the expo my second interview was scheduled the following week that lasted from 11:30am to 3:30pm. During the process we were given a presentation on the company and had lunch with the managers. Afterwards from 1-3 we performed three 30 minute interviews. The questions were much more personal than technical in my opinion. The interviewers varied as some were much more easy going than others. They contacted me a week after the interview and told me they would not go through with an offer.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Credit Suisse (Research Triangle Park, NC) in August 2011.
Initial phone interview asking basic background questions followed by idiotic behavioral questions that can be answered correctly by anyone with half a brain. Don't forget, you are interviewing for a "Swiss bank" that is highly exclusive and accessible by the chosen few.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Credit Suisse (Research Triangle Park, NC) in May 2010.
I got a call from HR asking for setting up a time for first round of interview. I had 3 rounds of interview. Luckily all telephonic interviews as I far away from the office location. 1st Interview was done by technical manager who did 30 minutes of interview with both technical and behavioral questions. Both technical and behavioral questions were good and manager accessed me through them. He told me they will do another round of interview. The 2nd interview was all technical in Java and .NET. The manager was architect and grilled me well with all the practical scenarios and coding question and few behavioral. It went for 1 hr. The 3rd one mix of both technical and behavioral and it went for 1 hr. You need to know your technical stuff and answer behavioral questions well. The interviewers are very qualified people and analyze candidates quickly and well. You need to be prompt in answering and to the point answer as they don't have whole day for you. Don't reschedule or cancel your interview or try to give answers to the best of your knowledge.
Nope. I was told what I am offered is not negotiable.
