I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at E*TRADE Financial in June 2013.

Interview Question – How did you handle your most difficult situation? What steps did you take to resolve? Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at E*TRADE Financial in October 2011.
Interview Details –
Fairly straightforward technical interview. Absolutely NO behavior questions.
Interviewers were friendly but ill-prepared except for one who was well prepared but surly.
3 rounds of 1:1 interviews. Interviewer asked me to explain current project and interrupted to ask about possible enhancements. Typical "if you could change one thing what would it be" type questions.
Interview Question – Difference in approach to multi-threading in C++ and Java. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate.
The process took 1+ week - interviewed at E*TRADE Financial in February 2011.
Interview Details – I was initially phone interviewed and asked to come in for a face to face interview with four people. After arriving, I met the hiring manager. He asked me the same questions as in the phone interview and I provided similar answers. After twenty minutes, he advised me that they had a candidate that they were close to an offer and brought me in "to make sure he wasn't missing anything." This was a complete waste of my time and very unprofessional.
