I applied online. I interviewed at Jane Street in October 2014.
contacted by HR after submitted the resume about 1 week. Interview for a research intern position in NY. 1 hr phone interview with a researcher there. I was asked 1 probability question and 1 math question. Very nice HR and interviewer. You need to think if you never encounter such question before.

The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Jane Street (New York, NY) in March 2012.
Four rounds of phone screening and one final round of on-site interviews. All on-site interviews are two-to-one. All technical questions. The interviewers are very smart but it seems they do not care that much about what they are doing at work. The overall process was pleasant though not as perfect as I expected.

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jane Street (New York, NY) in February 2011.
The interviewer gave information about the position. Then proceeded to probability questions. Asked three questions, all of which were already mentioned here by other users. So I answered timely and correctly except for a small algebraic error in one question. He sounded satisfied, and asked me when I am graduating, why do I want to work in Jane St, etc. Then in 3 days, I received an email from HR saying that they decided not to move forward with my application. I am not sure why they concluded this way. Maybe because I am not from a "target" school, whereas my department is in top 10.
