    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Davis Wright Tremaine (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process took 4 weeks from start to finish. It began with a telephone screen, followed by an interview over lunch with the person into whom this role reports. From that lunch, came an invitation to meet OA's in other offices, HRD and CAO over video conference in a group / panel interview setting. Finally, meetings with the Partner-in-Charge and selected Partners covering a diverse group of practice areas were set-up. At each stage of the process, DWT personnel were friendly, responsive and helpful. I was never out of the loop or left wondering about the status of my candidacy.
