I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Automated Trading Desk LLC (Charleston, SC) in May 2012.
Phone interview to onsite. First they tour you around the building, show you the trading desks and then you interview with all of the traders. Next two interviews with 'higher ups', mine were with the President and Risk Manager. Mostly fit questions. 3 hours long. Some skills test.
