    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.

    Interview

    Applied online with resume and cover letter and received a phone call from an HR person a few weeks later. I was expecting the call to be a brief introduction to schedule a phone interview/screening, but it turned out to actually be the phone interview screening, so I was a bit surprised and unprepared, especially because I had applied to the job over a month prior. The screener didn't ask me anything about my resume or cover letter; she jumped right into situational and skill-related questions.
