I haven't, but I know multiple people who have. The entry-level interview process consists of three rounds, the final one with the DA. It can take weeks between rounds. Depending on the time of year (for instance, right now), you are competing with post-bars for hire--but they will hire other candidates over their post-bars, sometimes. The types of questions that people described being asked seemed pretty typical: why a prosecutor; why this office; talk about your trial experience; basic hypotheticals. I can't recall anyone describing crazy curveball questions.

thanks for this. heard anything about hypotheticals or fact patterns? I've been told to expect a fact pattern but I'm not sure what I'll be asked to do with it.
