I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at General Motors in June 2013.
Interview Details – It is a behavioral interview which means they are looking for you to explain situations where you overcame adversity. There is no white boarding or in depth technical review but there was high level discussion of the technologies they are looking for. The main goal seems to be testing how well I worked with others. During the interview I first meet with a developer, and then a PM. The interview concluded with a very brief meeting with the director for that area.

Interview Details – I met with a representative on campus and gave her my resume. A few weeks later I received an email asking if I wanted to interview on my school's campus. I met up with one interviewer (two were supposed to be there) and interviewed for, I believe, just under an hour.
No technical questions. I was asked three questions and had to explain 5 points to each. They weren't questions that helped you bring up your strong points, mostly questions about a time you messed up, what you learned, and how that learning experience affects how you do things now.
I walked away feeling like it didn't go that well, but I guess that comes with the territory when you're talking for an hour about times that you've messed up. I was recently offered an internship and am going to accept.
Don't forget the thank you email after your interview. I felt like I didn't have the chance to explain how badly I wanted the internship, so I used the thank you email to stress that point.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time that you had to give up on something. (The three questions were all somewhat like this one) Answer Question
