    Communications Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Morgan Lewis.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview and then an in-person interview with a panel of partners. This all went well. They made me an offer over the phone and stated a formal letter would be coming in the mail. They reviewed compensation and benefits and what not. When the offer letter never came they continued to make excuses but confirm I was the selected candidate. A week later they told me they gave the role to someone else, I think someone with an inside connection to one of the partners. Ultimately it worked out well because I was overqualified for the role and simply needed a way to transition to a new city - I quickly received a new job offer after that rejection. That being said, the HR people at this place are not trustworthy and this speaks to the ethics of this organization. I would not recommend this place to anyone for a non-staff position. I even question the legality of what occurred although I doubt I have much of a leg to stand on particularly with a law firm. Again, this HR department is terrible and too quickly will blatantly lie without remorse.

    Reasons for Declining

    Well, I accepted the offer but they changed their mind when a family member of someone in the firm applied during the formal offer letter process.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Morgan Lewis.

    Interview Details

    Interviews were in the middle of the day rather than at beginning of day as requested given I'm currently working. A simple test was given that a junior to mid level developer should be able to pass. Many questions were asked about facts needed to prove one is a good developer, but almost nothing about process or creativity. The architect and developers that interviewed me were congenial, but the manager was just not really listening to me. He seemed to have his mind made up that I was not a good fit for whatever reason that was not clear to me.

    Associate Attorney Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Morgan Lewis in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview was different from several other firms in that Morgan Lewis seemed to focus more on behavioral interview questions (e.g. – tell me about a time you had to work with someone difficult). The interviewers were very friendly/personable while also being professional. They emailed me some forms/items they requested be filled out in advance and seemed happy to see that I had everything ready at the start of the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • No questions were really unexpected. However, they did ask some very specific questions about past incidents (behavioral interview questions), so be prepared with several stories/examples.   Answer Question

    Associate Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Morgan Lewis in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process, including pre-interview communications is very formal. Candidates should be prepared to be exceptionally professional. I met with four attorneys throughout the day. The questions were not particularly difficult, but candidates should be prepared to articulate their career goals. I got the impression the firm wants very hardworking associates, so the candidates should be aware of how they project that quality.
