    Genuine co-workers, great team building, constant workflow, everyone is treated fairly and very appreciative of the staff, normal business hours, advanced technology, enjoy days in the office

    Cons

    Currently Working on improving opportunities for training - at first, you're kind of thrown in and you either sink or swim. Just keep swimming! You'll get there.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Seyfarth Shaw (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Pretty typical interview process. I was interviewed by one partner. The interview lasted about 30 minutes. Before meeting with the partner, I met with someone from Human Resources for about 5 minutes. She talked about the position, and what the firm was looking for.
