    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Reed Smith (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a telephone interview three weeks later. The interview consisted of questions regarding skills and prior experience as well as salary requirements. Two weeks later I got a call to set up an in person interview. I was told that they would be scheduling an interview for me and will be sending me an email with respect to the date and time. I checked my emails regularly but did not see anything. Two weeks later I get a call from HR asking why I didn't show up to the scheduled interview on that date at 10:00 am. I told her because I never received the email. She put me on hold and apologized as someone was supposed to send me an email but did not. I would think if I got an email I would need to confirm if I was free on that date and time as well but I kept silent about that one. She told me that she will reschedule and send me the details. Later that afternoon I got an email from her thanking me for my time but at this point and time they can not offer me an in person interview.
