I applied through a staffing agency and interviewed at The Bollard Group.
Interview Details – Relatively straight forward; they don't try and hide the fact that they are running a sweat shop.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at The Bollard Group in November 2011.
Interview Details – There are two interviews. On the first they screen candidates and interviewers give their grades for candidates but I am not sure management takes into consideration others opinion. First two interviewers are most of the time future co-workers and the third interviewer is manager or partner. TBG uses agency for search needs and also they will be very aggressive with salary.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Bollard Group in February 2012.
Interview Details – After submitting a cover letter by email, I received an email inviting me to schedule a first interview, which I did by email. When I got there, I was shown to a room where the first thing I did was fill out an application. Then I waited in the room. Four people came in individually to interview me one at a time. They asked mostly similar questions which were mostly questions about things on my resume. I thought the interview went pretty well but did not get asked back for a second interview.
