    Two steps:

    Attorney, 4th-Year Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Andrews Kurth in July 2008.

    Interview

    The process was straight-forward. It was not run by HR but rather by the respective practice group. The first meeting was two on one interview -- a partner, an associate plus me. Second round was whole practice group (4 partners, 1 of counsel, 1 associate) in a board room batting questions my way.

    Negotiation

    Fair; good rapport and reasonable partner. The hiccup was that he was in DC and not final authority; had to go through Houston -- that dynamic is difficult in negotiations
