I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Société Générale (New York, NY) in February 2011.
You can get the job when you're asleep. Easy questions with pre-defined answers. As long as you answer everything politically correct, you will get hired.
Even for interviewing a technology post, you don't have to be technical at all. If you're interviewing for a business analyst spot, as long as you seem smart, you are hired! You don't need to know the business aweful a lot!
You can squeeze as much as you want from this company as it is losing people left and right.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Société Générale (Chennai (India)) in April 2014.
Had two face to face interview at Chennai for a opening. Hierarchy is very layered and can be misleading. Example: TL - 8A/8B, Asst Mgr - 7A/7B, Mgr - 6A/6B etc
H.R is not very transparent about hierarchy in the company and this can be misleading and cause confusion for any potential candidate applying for an opening.
Had 3 rounds of salary negotiations post which offer was rolled out. It was only in the last round they clarified about the actual hierarchy in the company. In hindsight it was a difficult but good decision I let the offer go as much better offers came after.
- There weren't any particularly difficult questions that were asked. All questions were along expected lines Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
arrogant H.R and company not transparent about hierarchy

The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Société Générale (London, England (UK)) in January 2008.
Straightforward and standard interview process. 1 to 1 interview in two rounds with final detailed HR interview. 3 rounds in total. Mostly competency based questions. Perception was positive especially of culture and people. Quite relaxed interviews and was able to ask many questions and felt I got to know potential employers well and get a good feel for the role and organisation.
- Asking for detailed examples of difficult situations encountered in the workplace. Answer Question
Yes did negotiate via agency, had to be firm and hold ground and eventually got what I wanted.
