Service center support staff Interview

Service center support staff
Winston-Salem, NC

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Kilpatrick Stockton in February 2009.

Interview Details – I emailed my resume and hand-delivered a resume in person. I received a call a few days later for an interview. I filled out the company's job application and then was taken into a room to be
interviewed by the support services manager and the woman who would be my immediate supervisor.
The support services manager was very affable, explained the duties of the job, salary, etc. Then
the woman took me for a tour of the support services floor where I would actually be working. She answered questions and was very honest and upfront about the job duties.

Interview Question – For this particular job, none of the questions were difficult.   Answer Question

Legal Secretary Interview

Legal Secretary

The process took a day - interviewed at Kilpatrick Stockton in May 2011.

Interview Details – Since the firm is known primarily for IP and Trademark work, they are tech savvy. My initial communication with HR was through e-mail. Therefore definitely have electronic copies of your resume available. When they expressed serious interest, I spoke with HR by phone to set up a 1:1 interview. The 1:1 was pretty easygoing. Even if you submit electronically, still bring a hard copy for the in person ineterview. The manager was very friendly. The manager called me back within the week to extend an offer. Support staff friendly with each other but attorneys don't really talk to the support staff. Office environment relaxed, jean Fridays.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not a lot of room to negotiate. I would ask for the median as your initial proposal so even if they offer you less, you still end up higher than your lowest range.
