I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at PCAOB in October 2012.
Connections at university apprised me of the opportunity. I applied online, and sent an email to a connection at the PCAOB. I had to proactively find and call the HR to get the interview process scheduled. The hiring process took 3 months, but I was in touch regularly with HR (HR was the only holdup -- the actual office I worked with was quick and responsive). 2 phone interviews back to back with a mix of behavioral, experience and technical questions. Not difficult.
- Very straightforward questions about school, classes, technical (computer) skills. Know at least how to do vlookups, preferably more in excel or SQL. Answer Question
No negotiation -- I don't think pseudo-gov't agencies can negotiate. Wage is a bit more for masters students.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at PCAOB in February 2012.
One Interview day- usually done by two to three hiring managers. Be prepared walking in the room, these people have tons of experience working at the Big 4 and know what kind of candidate they are looking for.
It is a great place to work, learn and network.
