Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Berry Appleman & Leiden (San Francisco, CA).

Interview

I applied directly on their website and received an invitation to interview a week later. Immediately upon arrival I was led to a conference room and given an assessment test. After that I interviewed with 2 associates in a different room. They were extremely friendly and the questions asked were not anything out of the ordinary. I received notice of the offer a few days following the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Berry Appleman & Leiden (Dallas, TX) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I applied for the position off Craigslist and was contacted by an HR representative to set up an interview with 3 attorney's at the Dallas office. They all asked standard interview questions and were friendly which made the interview very natural. Then shortly after my first interview I was invited back for a second one which was with two co-workers which focused on similar standard interview questions (i.e. do you have immigration experience? Why do you want to work here? How organized are you? What's an accomplishment you are proud of?) After that I took a written assessment asking me if two things are the same or different and circle it if it's different or the same. Then I had a reading comprehension section which asked me questions about what i read. Finally, I had to circle if words were misspelled and the correct definition.

    Interview Questions

    • Overall I found oddly enough the co-worker interview the most difficult since they seemed very tense.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Berry Appleman & Leiden (Atlanta, GA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I was required to take a spelling assessment, where I had to circle misspelled legal terms and then circle the best definition selection out of 3 choices for each word listed. Furthermore, the assessment also judged your attention to detail, which you must decide whether two sentences listed are the same or different. In the midst of all of this, I also interviewed with about 8 different people in between finishing my assessment, which i found to be a little excessive. However, the company culture seemed very relaxed for a law firm and everyone dressed business casual. I think I interviewed well, but i did not know some of the legal jargon, which is why I think I wasn't offered a position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Berry Appleman & Leiden (Atlanta, GA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    After checking in at the front desk, one of the associates led me to a conference room and left me alone to take an assessment that tested my spelling skills, knowledge of legal terms and attention to detail. Afterwards I was led to another room and different employees rotated through to meet with me. One explained the job in more detail and the culture of the firm (busy, must be able to multi-task, 40 hour weeks), another asked me your basic interview questions, and at the end two of the senior associates/partners asked me more about my resume. I was extremely nervous and allowed myself to be intimidated by the last two interviewers which apparently showed because I received an email the same day stating that I was no longer in the running for the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Berry Appleman & Leiden (McLean, VA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I learned about the opportunity through a mutual friend, but they also advertise on Craigslist. This is a good job for a recent college graduate. After submitting my resume and cover letter, I was contacted to schedule an interview. I met with two attorneys individually, as well as 2 paralegals. They basically ask you to talk about your experience and background and why you're interested in the job. They may ask you typical interview questions- nothing too scary. You don't need immigration experience, just a good academic background, interest in the job, and a good personality. Come prepared with questions for the attorneys and paralegals. You also take a straightforward test of basic legal words and spelling.
