    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Foley & Lardner.

    Interview Details

    There was an initial phone screen after which an interview was scheduled. The internal recruiter was the best that I have encountered in my search. She was genuine and engaging, available when I called following the interview for an update on the process and open to remaining in touch. She let me know personally when I was not selected. It was a very professional process/experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard behavioral questions from the internal recruiter. Things like, "describe a time when you had to deal with a difficult person," or "have you ever had to make a tough decision on the job." The actual marketing interview was used as an opportunity for the firm to describe how they are organized to deliver marketing projects and where the position would fit in within the organization. I got the sense that it was mostly about chemistry and culture.   Answer Question

    Summer Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Foley & Lardner in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Partners seemed really tired and overworked. So did the senior associates. One the senior associates confused me with someone else and was not prepared for my interview. They are very slow in getting back to you. Seems like they do mostly patent prosecution and will pigeon hole you into prosecution or litigation.

    I submitted my application and resume online and I was contacted by someone in HR who set up a phone interview. My phone interview was with my future manager and lasted about 20 minutes.

    A few days later I was contacted via email by the HR representative and I set up an in person interview. It lasted about 2 1/2 hours. I was asked to take an exam to see how much I actually knew about what I was going to be doing and then I was interviewed by several attorneys, HR reps, managers, etc.
    I was again told that I would be contacted in the next few days if I was selected for the position. My future manager contacted me and offered me the position and then I received my offer letter via email to look over. I accepted and began a few days later.
