    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at FindLaw (Eagan, MN).

    Interview

    Met with the senior manager of the Subscription Services team and we talked about the types of projects that this team handled. We also discussed benefits, and I was told about the hiring freeze that was about to be implemented over the next six months

    Interview Questions

    • How are you at handling criticism?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was a 6-month hiring freeze right after my interview, but once it was lifted they made an offer. It was $1000 a year less than what I'd made at my previous job, so I negotiated. The best I could get was the same salary, and since I was unemployed at the time (laid off), I took it.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FindLaw in October 2014.

    Interview

    All interviews were conducted via conference call. First interview will be with a talent aquisition specialist (HR). This is a very low-key and conversational interview to review and confirm qualifications. The second interview tends to be a group interview with current Team Leads and is a more traditional and formal interview. There are 3 parts to this interview: technical skills, customer/client skills, and general work style/culture. There may also be a call-back interview to dig deeper into one or more of these areas. While formal, all interactions are cordial with a comfortable atmosphere on the conference calls.

    Interview Questions

    • A call back interview where a skills demonstration was required with no advance preparation.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Wage expectations are part of the initial application process and will be confirmed during your initial interview. Be sure to set realistic expectations that you will be happy with as your offer will be based on this information.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at FindLaw (Eagan, MN) in June 2014.

    Interview

    unprofessionally done - too many people interviewing me - canned questions - too worried about asking the wrong thing to really get at the heart of the individual. Honestly - I was bored with the process. I had hoped that this technology based company would have more inspiring leadership - which was not the case when I interviewed with them. Overall company is impressive - but under the hood it seemed like amateurs were running the show.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time that you had to deal with a difficult or tough workplace situation...   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    kind of got a bad vibe from the people I interviewed with, and the pay was not competitive at all. Decent perks - but the sum the total compensation package does not make up for a low-ball salary offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at FindLaw in June 2014.

    Interview

    Answering pre-selected questions on SEO via email. Phone interview with recruiter. If you pass this stage, you'll have an interview with the SEO team leads. The team leads have succeeded because they've learned the "process of SEO in the working environment" at FindLaw.com, not because they're successful SEO professionals.

    Interview Questions

    • None. If you need the job, answer the questions as if you are process driven over progress driven. After searching "findlaw.com reviews" you'll see their "questionable" SEO strategies. They're behind the cue ball in the online marketing space and after speaking to their "SEO Team Leads" will be there until they can be more agile and progressive in their online marketing strategy.   1 Answer
