I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Ernst & Young in December 2013.
Interview Details –
I applied for the position through my school's career services website.
The first-round interview was on-campus. The interviewer was really nice, and it was a standard 30-minute resume/personality interview.
A few days later, I received an email requesting I complete an online writing test. I was given 45 minutes to answer a question about the skill set necessary for new hires. It was not difficult -- I think it was less about what you wrote and more about your ability to write.
A few days after that, I received an email inviting me to an office visit. My visit was scheduled for a month later. The day began with two presentations, one about the Business Advisor Program and another about EY. We were then introduced to our greeters, who were in their first and second years of BAP, who took us to our interviews and then out to lunch afterwards. There were three interviews back-to-back, one case and two resume/fit. The case interview was not stressful -- the interviewer was nice, and answered whatever questions I had. The case was also written out and I had 10-15 minutes to read through the problem and think about it on my own before I was asked any questions. After the interviews, I got lunch with a group of greeters and other people interviewing.
I heard back within 5 business days that I received an offer.
Interview Question – My last interviewer was tough. For everything I said, he said I didn't really answer the question and asked me to say something else. I don't think he did this because my answers were bad or wrong, but rather to see how I reacted and carried myself. He did this for three or four questions, but warmed up at the end when I had the chance to ask questions. Answer Question

Interview Details – Applied through campus recruiting. Went to first round on-campus interview with a partner on Oct. 16th and second round on-site interview with two senior managers on Nov. 21st. Both were one-to-one. The whole process, from first round interview to final decision making, took almost 5 weeks. However, the decision was made the next day right after the office visit.
Interview Question – Nothing technical. Most of them were conversational. I had three interviewers during the whole interview process. There was only one guy asking me many questions about my experience, like the best/worst team/people you've ever worked with, describing a time when you made a right/wrong decision, etc. View Answer

Interview Question – The case study was about 2 different banks, one online and the other retail, that were going to merge and how they can help eachother out given that the retail bank is going through some legal issues after the 2008 crisis. the online bank has no atms and the retail bank has no iphone apps/proper website banking system. Only 30 minutes to read case study, take notes, and answer interviewer's questions.
