Very Easy Interview
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Littler Mendelson in October 2009.
Interview Details – They were desperate and hired me instantly. There was an extremely high turn over there; although I was there about two years.
Interview Question – These people were desperate - I can tell they either weren't getting many people applying or they weren't getting quality people applying. If they were a quality firm themself (which I had no way of knowing they weren't when they offered me the job) then the firm might function normally. Like other offices. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was none. They offered me the job to start right away but I told I was not available to start for several days. They said they'd pay me 45K base salary.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at Littler Mendelson in October 2011.
Interview Details – Obviously, time is of no importance to this company and all I can say is this has been the absolute worst experience I have ever had while job hunting.
I still have yet to this date to receive a rejection letter from the staffing company or with Littler. Their lack of professionalism and responsiveness was completely different from my two in-person interviews with them. The recruiting company that I was working with could've been better at returning my calls, but all communications had to go through them since they are their "preferred staffing agency." Both interviews were scheduled with a phone call at 4pm the day before, which left me very little time to prepare. First interview takes place, I get the thumbs up from the recruiter. 1 month passes, I am told the director of marketing is on vacation for 3 weeks so I go to the 2nd interview to meet her. The interview process asked basic "strengths" questions about customer service and dealing with attorneys.
Another month passes, and the recruiter keeps telling me that I'm still in consideration by Littler. Start date is supposed to be Monday this week, the same day I find the same job posting on Craigslist.org for exactly the same position. The staffing company doesn't even know that Littler was doing the hiring themselves! I'm not sure why Littler would go around a recruiter but had I known this is how they do things I would've went around the staffing company a long time ago but this would be considered unethical and downright unprofessional. An email, phone call, text, a Skype, or whatever would've been courteous of them to let me know "Thanks, but No Thanks."
Finally, after sending an email to the recruiter and the company explaining my position and fed up with them giving me the run around. They then have the audacity to reply back saying "we never gave you an official start date, we are a large organization with changing priorities." Apparently, I was never a priority in their eyes from the get-go.
If your a candidate looking for a job at Littler you may have more luck applying directly with them now that you don't have to go through a recruiter. But don't forget you are applying for a Law Firm that specializes in Labor Law, so they know what they can get away with.
