    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wilson Elser (New York, NY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    HR left me a voicemail asking to call them back-- I did, they screened me on the spot then sent me a link to complete a Hirevue interview. After this, I was sent an email to come in for an interview the following Wednesday-- I interviewed with 2 people, they were very nice and hinted that I had a lot of the skills needed for the position. The following week they told me that they had contacted my references and that I will be hearing from them soon. It's been a month and I haven't heard from them- no follow up, got an offer elsewhere.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Wilson Elser.

    Interview

    Had a quick telephone interview with HR. Was called in to interview a few days later. Met with a few individuals that day. Everyone was extremely nice and asked really good interview questions. The interview lasted approx. 45 minutes, but they made me feel comfortable the whole time. After the interview, one interviewer was kind enough to walk me out! Received an offer the next day!
