    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen, & Loewy.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of four phases, a phone screen, phone interview, a video interview that included an online multiple-choice exam, and a final, in-person interview. The test asked mostly about general business etiquette, but also included questions regarding correct grammar, etc. The interviews were straightforward, some behavioral questions, and questions about your interest in immigration law. None of those weird case questions like how many jellybeans fit into a Honda civic.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen, & Loewy (Santa Clara, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied via FutureStep. Within a few days, I was contacted by a recruiter to set up a short phone interview. Two hours the phone interview, I had a 45-minute long skype interview with a supervising recruiter. It was very casual, just going through my resume and talking more about the position. After, I was given 24 hours to provide 5 references and complete an ESkills test and 48 hours to complete a set of video interview questions. The Eskills test wasn't too hard but tests a whole plethora of skills, from logic to procrastination. The interview questions were nice because you could record it as many times as you wanted and submit an answer you were happy with. It gave me an opportunity to be more thorough and articulate than if I was not given the opportunity to prep my answers. Within 2 days, I was contacted to set up a on-site interview. After the on-site interview, I was contacted by HR within the hour with an offer. The entire process was very very fast paced - It took about a week from my online application to the offer. I think the process was very representative of Fragomen as a company as a whole - fast, with tight deadlines, and structured.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen, & Loewy (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the LA office but was abroad so I had 3 phone interviews. The first two were very short (around 10 minutes). The interviewers asked me 2 questions and said had to go to a meeting and ended the call. The third interview went for around 30 minutes and was an alright interview with typical questions and time for me to ask questions as well. I was told I'd hear back in about 2 weeks.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen, & Loewy.

    Interview

    Really easy/ laid back. The interview was set up by the temp agency and conducted with the Partner of the firm. Asked pretty standard interview questions in terms of my background, educational history, and personality traits. Nothing to sweat over really. Pretty much just winged it and everything went fine.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen, & Loewy (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    It was extremely awkward and I don't think my interviewer had questions in mind to ask me. She asked me very minimal questions and didn't seem to be paying attention. I went through a staffing agency and the person interviewing me appeared clueless as to what to do with me once she was finished with her questions .

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen, & Loewy (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was a great experience. Everyone was nice and friendly. The questions were easy and there were no surprises there. The only thing i didn't like was when someone from HR called my cell phone just to tell me i didn't get the job. He left a message but didn't say anything specific. I tried calling back a few times. i was hopeful that i got the job because i was told that a phone call from HR was a good sigh. I got a call back eventually with a rejection. Ii wish it was just an email.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen, & Loewy in April 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screening, video interview, personal recorded interview, in-office interview with attorneys. There was also an assessment. Basically, a really rigorous screening process that I believe is unnecessary but is used to weed people out who don't really want the job. Too much work for an assistant paralegal position, honestly. However, the attorneys (maybe not at every firm, but for the location I applied to) were extremely well-versed, extremely smart, and very passionate about their jobs. However, this company needs to look at their hiring process again...
