    Staff Contract Attorney Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at Quinn Emanuel in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very laid back and friendly. You will meet with another staff attorney and discuss the case and expectations of the job. Most staff contract attorneys are very helpful. Some feel entitled to more because Quinn spoils them.

    Application Details

    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.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Francisco, CA

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. 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).
