    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Holland & Knight (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    It's the first time I have ever asked what the dress code is in an interview. I was met by the Business Manager who was wearing a jogging suit. She laughed at my salary requirements. My salary requirements were based on the differences between where I was and H&K. Although, I will respond "Yes" to the offer question, it was quite the fight - my atty had to get involved because he needed me and I was not about to take a cut in pay.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions, no testing, no anything. If she likes you, you're in; if not, you're not.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    A total utter nightmare. She wrote a 2-page memo the powers (copy in my file) making a case for why I should not be hired at my rate. I understand that - but then don't hire me or get over it - don't make my life miserable for the next 9 years.
