Paralegal Interview

Paralegal
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Quinn Emanuel in October 2013.

Interview Details – Beautiful office, nice people, everyone wears jeans. I had a great interview with the Paralegal Coordinator and a Senior Paralegal who was part of the team seeking another paralegal. The Associates I met with were extremely nice and did not seem overstressed as with a typical AmLaw 100 firm.

Interview Question – Sounds like you are doing more exciting work at your current position. Why would you want to take this position?   Answer Question

Easy Interview

Associate Interview

Associate
San Francisco, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Quinn Emanuel in September 2009.

Interview Details – Very brief phone screen, < 30 minutes, before they flew me out for an on-site interview. Met two midlevel associates and went to lunch with one, then met the hiring partner in the afternoon. They asked several variations of 'why do you want to work at this particular firm' and seemed happy with variations on 'I like the focus on litigation' and 'I like the focus on results over presentation' (a flattering framing of the non-dress-code and generally less-formal atmosphere).
