    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arnold & Porter (Washington, DC) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Testing online followed by three Web interviews with different staff and HR. Everyone is very easy to talk to and they ask very standard behavioral Questions. The process has been fairly dragged out because of technical issues and scheduling issues on their end.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you stay organized? How do you handle pressure? Basic Questions.   Answer Question
