    Very average interview, they covered my resume/past experiences, etc. Office space was nice and they valued diversity and inclusion (which is great and rare). Just writing this to see a salary tbh.

    Legal Secretary Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dinsmore & Shohl.

    Interview

    Scheduled a phone interview that was 5 days away with the regional office manager. Planned the specific time and date and was told she added it to her calendar and would call me then. I sat around for 30 minutes and never received a call. This was already disrespectful enough as she knew I am currently employed and I had to take time out of my work day to interview. Two days later and I have still heard nothing from her. No apology e-mail, no explanation of why there was no call, not even an e-mail telling me that they went in a different direction. This was very unprofessional and I will never work for this company.
