Corporate Legal Assistant Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Davis Polk in January 2012.
Interview Details – Emailed my resume and cover letter to the head of paralegals. He called the next day to schedule an interview. Met with the legal assistant coordinator and the heads of several departments. All were obviously rushed and said very canned things like "we are all nice to each other, there is no screaming as legal assistants here".
Interview Question – One of the department heads gave a 5 minute very technical and complicated explanation of what he does and then asked me to explain it back to him. Answer Question
