    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vedder Price.

    Interview

    Felt very warm and the right firm for me from the initial call. The Recruiter reached out to me a couple of days after applying online for a phone screen. I was invited in for an in-person interview. I was greeted at reception by the recruiter and she spent time with me, making me feel comfortable and asking a few more thorough questions. I interviewed with my future manager. The interview with my manager became conversational and I knew I wanted to work at Vedder. Overall, I was very happy with the interview process

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Vedder Price (Chicago, IL) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Recruited through a legal staffing firm. Had to take a ridiculous spelling and attention to detail test. HR recruiter was not friendly and thoughtlessly planned my interview at the same time as an interview with a current coworker, whom I ran into during the interview, which was extremely unprofessional and concerning.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Vedder Price (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Bait & Switch. Position advertised as full-time/permanent. What firm offered, instead, was "temp." Waste of time, effort, energy, etc. and left a very bad taste. Would not recommend to others.
