    Associate Attorney Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Relatively informal. I met with an associate and partner the first day, and then the main partner during the call back. Most of the discussion, I would say, had to do with "fit" and how well I work in a relatively small practice group that blended corporate and litigation work.

    Interview Questions

    • General information questions about background, enjoyment of practice of law, and why I wanted to leave my current firm. We discussed a lot of personal interests like golf and cooking. They were definitely interested in that small category of "other" that you list on the bottom of your resume. Was also asked about my law school note and, thankfully, I had reviewed that before the interview so I remembered what it was about.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mintz Levin (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I interviewed for the IP department at this firm. I was interviewed by basically the whole department. Two associates, (one of whom I'd be working with), Law clerk (also worked with), associate, and partner. The interview went very well being that I came into the company with 10+ years experience in IP and they seemed to feel very confident adding me to their firm. Everything they asked (technical and otherwise) was already something I was proficient in or had no problem tackling.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions I was asked were directly related to my field so I was able to answer with ease. Didn't really have any unexpected questions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mintz Levin in October 2013.

    Interview

    Very standard. Phone and in-person interviews are merely to get a sense of personality and fit. The team is tasked with narrowing over 400 applicants to 6-10. It's a tough job and, understandably, it can get subjective toward the final rounds. This is to be expected in any competitive application process.

    Interview Questions

    • "Curveball": Name three people (living or dead) you would want to have dinner with and why.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mintz Levin (Boston, MA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through my university. I had an on campus interview with two current Project Analysts. They were very friendly and calmed my nerves, making it very easy to talk about my qualifications and previous work experiences. I was notified in less than a week that I had been accepted for a second round interview in their offices. I had three interviews on site. The first two were with Associate Attorneys. They were conversational and the first Associate seemed truly interested in my past experiences. Unfortunately, the second associate had been out of the office for several months and did not know much about the job description. It felt like they had asked her very last minute. She did not have my resumé and when I gave her an extra copy she seemed disinterested. The final interview was with two more current Project Analysts. They were less engaging than then the two I had met with on campus. The guy drilled me with 10-15 behavioral questions, none of which were difficult but they were very similar in nature so it became difficult to draw on prior experiences.

    • Tell me about a time you were asked to do something you didn't agree with?   Answer Question
