    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at KEL Attorneys (Tampa, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted directly by my now office manager (OM) regarding the position. I had never even contacted the company before, but they found my information on Monster and called me. After a brief and very basic Q&A with the OM on Tuesday I was offered an in person interview for Thursday. My interview was with the OM, who I had spoken with on the phone, and with the department manager (DM) who I had never spoken with (I didn't even know the DM was going to be there). The office Manager fetched me from the waiting room, introduced themselves and then the DM. The interview was conducted almost entirely by the DM in a small conference room, and consisted of mostly easy standard questions and a few not-too-hard non-standard questions. The back and forth wasn't overly formal, sometimes seeming almost conversational. At the end of the questioning I was granted the chance to speak freely in describing myself. Overall it was very straightforwards, and was told pretty much that if I "did well" on the personality tests that they would have an offer of employment to me within 24hrs of completing the 'tests'.

    Interview Questions

    • Paraphrasing - "Describe to me a past phone conversation you had with either a client or potential client, how it went, and how you felt personally about it"   Answer Question
    • Paraphrasing - "Tell me about your customer service experiences and how you best interact with clients or potential clients"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. For a first job out of college (with internship and past part time experience) what was offered pay wise was well beyond my expectations, but also set solidly in stone.
