    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Shook Hardy & Bacon in October 2015.

    Interview

    I had an phone interview based off an resume I submitted through their website portal. The following week I was given an interview and two tests. I was given the interview only after passing both tests (understandable). Everyone during the process was super nice and seemed to be amazing individuals to work with/for. The interview its self was professional but also made you excited to be a candidate for thus firm. They covered everything from your background (hopefully in law) to how it compares to their firm. They explain their expectations upfront and also let you know what you can expect from working there.
    I currently have their benefits pack info and I am awaiting my official offer......

    Negotiation

    I probably won't negotiate because what they pay is WAY more than my last firm did and with better benefits too!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shook Hardy & Bacon (Kansas City, MO) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Asked very personal questions - they should have stayed on point of experience and education. The interview lasted about 2 hours. There were two people in the room - but only one of the individuals did all of the talking while the other mostly observed you.

    Internship Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Shook Hardy & Bacon (Kansas City, MO) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Application with essay on personal topic. Interviewed by two partners at the school. Conversation was very laid back, we joked a bit about horrible legal tv shows, about my courses that semester, and we even exchanged stories about certain infamous professors (at least one of the partners was an alumnus of the same school). Also- they gave me information about the program and what they felt were the most important qualities for success, in the program and beyond. Almost felt like the interview hadn't really started and then it was over, so I was worried we hadn't discussed enough substantive information for me to have a shot at the internship. I was offered the one spot anyway, so I assume the focus was on personality/compatibility, and the application/writing sample was the basis for the academic qualifications and determination.
