    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Bar Association (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewer was very casual but appeared disinterested or distracted. She kept checking her cell phone and her computer monitor. Called in for interview 2 months after submitting application. Overall I felt as if this interview was a learning opportunity. Even though the interview was not engaging, I realized that I could do much better as well.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Bar Association.

    Interview

    It was very quick. There was a screening interview, then an interview the hiring manager, and then a final interview with the team. I wish I would have asked more about the culture. If I would have, I wouldn't have accepted this position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at American Bar Association.

    Interview

    Working with HR can be a bit challenging. It isn't unusual for HR to not be on the same page as the hiring entity. General phone screen, in-person interview with recruiter, followed by interview with hiring entity. Every interview with the hiring entity is different. The initial questions are simple and basic.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Bar Association (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was quick and almost not worth the time to drive downtown. Nothing special and kind of robotic - HR just walking through the process. I felt like she was either tired or uninterested.
