I applied through college or university and the process took 10 months - interviewed at Ontario Securities Commission.
Interview Details – The OSC participates in the formal articling process through the Ontario law schools so you get a call on call day and schedule your interview during the allocated interview days. There was only one interview, no follow up visit or second interview. The actual interview was very formal, a panel of interviewers, formal question/answer format, very little or no chit chat, the interviewers made a lot of notes I'm assuming so that they could compare your answers with those of the other candidates. Some general questions about securities regulation and policies should be expected. The remainder of the questions were behavioural/situational (ie have you faced a challenge at your previous work and how did you handle it) and questions relating to your skills and how they will benefit you in the role that you've applied for.

Interview Details – It was a long process involving three long interviews.
Interview Question – The questions were not terribly difficult and were, for the first interview, general behavioural based questions for the first interview, a bit informal with the second interview (with the expectation that you will lead with questions), and the third one is really casual (with the expectation, I suspect, to see whether you're sociable etc).
