    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Reed Smith (San Francisco, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    There is an initial interview and if you make it past that you have a final interview. The initial interview is not very difficult, but the final interview is (as expected) more difficult.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do if you received multiple projects in one day, they all had deadlines, and you could not complete all of them? How would you handle this situation?   Answer Question
