    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wilson Sonsini.

    Interview Details

    Three phone screenings, and 4-6 hour interview where I met with HR, Sr Associate and two partners, one at a time. Everyone was very pleasant. Business casual. If you know the position's requirements and the work, there is no challenge. HR Director did throw in scenario questions to determine multi-tasking, how you could mesh with culture or conflict.

    Interview Questions
