    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at K&L Gates LLP.

    Interview Details

    Very quick. I applied online on a Saturday and was called in for an interview on Monday. Started employment exactly 4 weeks from date of application. I was very happy with the fluidity of the process. But I believe they moved very quickly because they understood I had two outstanding offers.

    Interview Questions
    • I do not recall a specific question that was unexpected or I couldn't answer. But I always get stumped on the "what are your weaknesses".   Answer Question

    Marketing Communications Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at K&L Gates LLP in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter. The phone screening wasn't too difficult and recruiter was very friendly.

    The first on-site interview was in their Wilmington office, but used video conference to talk with hiring managers in Seattle. This interview was pretty straight forward, no trick questions, a few behavioral questions.

    The second interview was in Pittsburgh. I was interview by two team members that the candidate would work with. Neither seemed to have much experience interviewing and did not appear to have prepared together very well for asking questions. Some questions were a bit odd.

    Security Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at K&L Gates LLP in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Pretty easy given that there is no one there capable of assessing qualifications. As would be expected with that being the case, lots of canned general questions that anyone with a year of two of security experience under their belt should be able to handle.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you go about providing the illusion of positive change for the better from a security perspective without actually changing much of anything at all?   Answer Question

    Summer Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at K&L Gates LLP in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    An associate served as my "tour guide" for the day. She led me from interview to interview. I mostly interviewed with partners. The thing that struck me most was that some of the partners were very adamant that Pittsburgh was not a Midwestern-style rust-belt city, but was one of the business centers of the world. The firm seemed cool. Summer associates received Blackberries (when it was cool to have them).
