I did two. One of them gave ethical hypos that were super easy. No mock closing or anything like that. It was just one interview, no extra rounds. Another was literally me just talking about my experience in crim law. That one was two rounds, though.
I did one in a state with a small population but did it with the office in the biggest city in the state. It was one round and around 1 hour. I'd say 10-15 mins was why here, why DA work, getting to know you type of questions and 45 minutes of hypotheticals that actually tested fundamental knowledge of criminal law/procedure.
I also did one in a rural county that was basically just questions about experience and them trying to figure out if i would be a good fit.
Both stated what the interview would be like well in advance of the interview.
