    Associate Counsel Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Phoenix (Phoenix, AZ) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted a resume and then they called me in. Met with head of legal and other attorneys. It was a pretty nice experience actually. Of course they did not mention how at that time their computer system was completely out of date and they did not have any history of what went on if a state outside of a paper library that was deficient and missing information. So if a lawyer left who was covering regulatory compliance in a state, you had no idea what was going on in that state.
