    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sidley Austin in September 2017.

    Interview

    Perfunctory testing, questioning. Nothing special. Very impersonal. Lengthy. The main person I was supposed to meet never showed up - sent a text to someone in the room "to tell me to go!!!" Incredibly unprofessional. No follow-up, apology, explanation.

    Interview Questions

    • Perfunctory testing and questioning. Met with three HR persons; waited for a long time for fourth person. She never did showed up but sent one of the people I was awkwardly waiting with "to tell me to go". Very disheartening considering I came from out of town, spent a lot of time, money and effort to meet with everyone. No follow-up, no apology - nothing. Very unprofessional.   1 Answer
