I applied online – interviewed at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in April 2013.
There were 2 phone interviews: first with a representative from HR; second with a manager in the specified department. In the first interview, we discussed my background and interests in entertainment/marketing. After answering 3 general questions, the HR rep informed me that she'd review my qualifications again and return shortly back to me. 1 week later I received an e-mail from her with details about a second phone interview with a manager from Warner Home Enterainment.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day – interviewed at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
My interview process was pretty straightforward: basic algorithms test, basic design patterns test, basic problem solving test, and basic personality test.
The algorithms test was pretty simple: find the largest number in an array.
The design patterns test was also pretty simple: design a class architecture for a card game.
The problem solving test involved talking through how you troubleshoot a "real-life" problem that could happen in a production environment.
Officially, there was no personality test, but the director who ultimately hired me did ask a lot of soft questions relating to my personal history and how I approach people.
A word of caution for those preparing for a Warner Brother's interview: don't expect your interview to be this simple. I've treated interviewee's much more harshly, and so have some of my co-workers.
I tried to negotiate a higher salary, but I didn't get it. I ultimately took the offer that they originally gave. If I could do it again, I would have tried to negotiate on the benefits (i.e. working from home, time-off, relocation, etc.)
Rude, dismissive and unprofessional - HR that is. Beware!

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (Burbank, CA (US)) in July 2010.
I had an interview and was kept waiting for over an hour for the manager to show up. She came in and told me that she was getting a massage. Most of the interview consisted of going over key points of my resume and listening to her tales of the local bars.
- Basically went over what was on my resume, I guess they didn't have time to read it. Answer Question
I was just happy to be working in the industry but I soon found out why so many people leave WB to go to competitors.
