I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at UBS Investment Bank in July 2012.
Interview Details – A phone interview with the hiring manager, followed by a face to face interview with the hiring manager then face to face with one or more senior people from Operations and/or other areas of IT. Finally, an interview with HR. If successful, HR & the agency negotiate - HR are given salary limits and Office Title limits by the Hiring Manager or their Manager. Offer is typically take it or leave it - there is no further negotiation at this stage.
Interview Question – At the end of a log, drawn out discussion about how to handle the situation where someone in my team has made an error that had a significant impact, we arrived at the "Ultimately, I carry the can" there was the "How would you feel if we were either going to fire you or you had to sacrifice the employee that made the error" bit... that is a bit tricky without the full background and actually "being there" so you have to take a gamble.

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was brief for me and was done with HR. It was then handed over to the agent to do further with HR (you can be more candid with the agent). Once the offer is through, though, there is no further negotiation. It is a take it or leave it offer.

Interview Question – What is your role as a team leader? Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at UBS Investment Bank in July 2010.
Interview Details – It was challenging experience as many people were not accepted. At the beginning of the interview day we had numerical test and programming aptitude test. Later only best performers were allowed for interviews with line managers. There were three tasks. First was Group interview (board meeting), later we had direct interview with line manager and finally a presentation on a given topic. All tasks were evaluated by different people. Impression after visiting UBS was downright positive.
