I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at IBM.
Interview Details – Was referred by employee. Had 4 interview rounds after phone interview. Had tricky C questions , C data structures , string operation programs etc, networking related : TCP states. There was main focus on C programming skills with the ability to problem solving. I like these interviews compared to Google's because Google asks questions which may not even be related to the work you will be doing!

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at IBM in January 2007.
Interview Details – Pretty boring, straightforward behavioral questions with very little technical depth.
