Has anyone take the written skills test during an interview to be an attorney with the City of Chicago? I have an interview scheduled and I have no idea what to expect.

They never had me take it. But the interview was strange -- they ask questions and you answer but you can't follow up like a normal conversation. They want to keep it fair for everyone, so it's just question/answer. The questions were what you'd expect: about experience, background, etc.

I did get an offer but did not take it (personal reasons, nothing with them). Prep advice is basic because as I said they asked typical, reasonable questions. Explain your background, what's one of your faults, etc. it was so long ago, I don't remember anything specific.
