    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Seyfarth Shaw (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Took 3 weeks. First round with an HR representative and then one round with the Attorneys. The process was pleasant and very informative. The attorneys really wanted to see if the position is a good fit for the firm so the HR representative asked most of the technical questions. There is no negotiation on salary but the benefits are great and this is a great firm to work for.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation phase. They start their Case Assistants at the same rate and you are eligible for a raise within a year.
