I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McDermott Will & Emery (Irvine, CA) in February 2017.
Interview process took roughly 1 week. That week, I received an email on Monday from a recruiter asking to set up a phone interview. On Tuesday the recruiter and I spoke for roughly 15 minutes, asking about my work and education history, my career goals, why I applied, and my salary requirements. He thanked me and told me he'd pass on my answers to the hiring managers. On Wednesday the recruiter emailed me back asking to schedule an in person interview with the managers and specialists. On Thursday, I went in for an in-person 3-part interview. I interviewed with 3 separate people for roughly 30 minutes each. I found this particularly beneficial as I was able to speak with the general department head, the person I'd be directly working with on a daily basis, and the head of HR. This gave me a very rounded interview. One week from Thursday I received an offer, and after a round of negotiation I accepted.
Interview process may be difficult for those who find separate interviews challenging but each person I spoke with was kind and we had a great rapport.
