Summer Analyst Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Piper Jaffray (Charlotte, NC) in February 2014.
I had a two on one interview with two analysts. The interview was all fit, no technical questions were asked. It lasted about half an hour and both interviewers were extremely nice. Good experience overall.

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Piper Jaffray (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2014.
They asked a number of technical questions about: dcf, comps, analysis, data analysis, transactions, premiums, working cap, equity market, credit markets, M&A.... everything under the sun. And the whole time it was just question after question about technical information. And the interview process was pretty straight forward. You know, your typical IB interview process, but stress on technicals

Very friendly process. I had practically no finance experience and Piper was my first finance interview of the banking recruiting process. I learned a lot in their process, actually, since each interviewer asked similar questions to his or her predecessor. The advantage was that if I screwed up in one interview, I would know the right answer in the next. They're completely okay with you making mistakes so long as you're open to learning. Personality mattered a ton -- I really, really liked those folks.

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Piper Jaffray in February 2012.
Starts with resume drop, if your resume gets the nod, then it's a phone interview with an analyst. It's mostly fit, getting to know you, with some technical questions. If it all works out, then it's onto the second round superday at the office in which you're applying for. It's a 4 hour affair at superday with back-to-back interviews with multiple individuals at the firm, ranging from senior bankers to junior bankers. Depending on the person, it'll either be fit based or technical based. It's a pretty relaxed process, as relaxed at it can be for an investment banking position that is. After the superday, you'll find out within a week or two.
