Legal Analyst Interview

Legal Analyst

Interviewed at Kobre & Kim

Interview Details – I was contacted at a school event. It was alright. They asked standard questions. I felt a bit uncomfortable by some of the jokes made in the interview. I realized the financial sector of law isn't my cup of tea.

Interview Question – They want a writing sample. Make sure it is good.   Answer Question

Legal and Financial Analyst Interview

Legal and Financial Analyst

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Kobre & Kim.

Interview Details – Was asked to interview only two days after submitted application on linkedin. The interview was just a thirty minutes with two other analysts. The questions were fairly basic behavioral or background questions, but the interviewers were not particularly engaging. They seemed more interested in stock answers than creative or original thinking. They also failed to give a very complete picture of their job. The reality, I think, is that this position is just a glorified paralegal job. Don't be fooled.

More importantly, I never heard any response or feedback from them. I found that to be rude and classless, and I know that I would not want to work for Kobre and Kim if it treats its prospective employees in such a disrespectful manner.

Interview Question – Nothing particularly unexpected.   Answer Question

Financial & Legal Analyst Interview

Financial & Legal Analyst

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Kobre & Kim in February 2013.

Interview Details – Received email from office about acceptance for interview. Set up phone interview over email. Were clear and nice about the scheduling.
Interviewers called at appointed time, began conversation. Were not too engaging. Seemed to guide you if your answer was not what they were looking for.
Very focused questions. Quizzed you about everything on your resume. Would need more than the standard interview prep to ace this interview - will ask for 3 instances when you encountered a challenge working in a group instead of the usual 1 or 2.
Did not share much about the process post-interview, which was a little sad. Ultimately, didn't get an offer.

Interview Question – Resume specific question: How did you manage $20k+ event budget?
*more unexpected than diffcult

Legal Analyst Interview

Legal Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Kobre & Kim in January 2011.

Interview Details – two phone interviews (30 minutes each with 2 different analysts each time), and one super day interview which consisted of two 1-hour interviews with 2 analysts each and an attorney interview. It was definitely very misleading because the company was very nice and made it seem like they really wanted me but a week later, i received an email stating that they were unable to offer me a position. Overall, the people were nice, smart, and professional.

Legal and Financial Analyst Interview

Legal and Financial Analyst

Interviewed at Kobre & Kim

Interview Details – 2 phone interviews and one in-office interview consisting of three hour long interviews with current analysts. The phone interviews last about thirty minutes each. Great place if you're an ivy leaguer looking for a job where you can get by on the name of your undergrad. It's a circle jerk of snobbery.
