    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shook Hardy & Bacon (Kansas City, MO) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Asked very personal questions - they should have stayed on point of experience and education. The interview lasted about 2 hours. There were two people in the room - but only one of the individuals did all of the talking while the other mostly observed you.
