    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Weil Gotshal (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Great people - and laid back interviewing style. It's clear that the teams really get along. Applied for a specific group so met with most of the folks I would be working with and there was less hierarchy among the associates and partners than you would typically see at another large law firm.
