I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2011.
Interview Details – Full day of interviews ( 9am - 8pm), total of about nine 1:1 interviews. People were in general relaxed and professional. Mostly quantitative finance questions, brainteasers, logic, math, some stochastic calculus, some algorithmic stuff/coding. Little to no fit questions, except for the last interview with the managing director of the group.

Negotiation Details – No negotation, offer taken as given.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2010.
Interview Details – All the interviewers were very professional and friendly. There were two phone interviews after which I got called to onsite consisting of many one on one interviews. Typically each interview consisted of me going over my resume, puzzles and finally questions for the interviewer. The puzzles were varied, on programming, statistics and math, and were quite challenging. The interviewers were all very smart, open to alternate lines of thought, and very polite. I was asked to come for a second round where I met senior management, who asked more personality based questions.
