    Interview Details

    The interview process took around 2 & 1/2 months. It consisted of 1 round with 2 people, 2nd "round" was a writing test and the third round I met with 7 people. All were very nice, all asked a lot of questions on what I would do in the position, why I wanted it, why I wanted to leave my current position, what I would bring to the position, which websites I would search for recent developments etc... Etc... I thought they were all nice and that the interview went very well but in the end I didn't get an offer after a 2 & 1/2 month process :(

    Interview Details

    Easy peasy interview. Recruiter from the company gave a quick phone screen then moved to a face-to-face interview with some of the sales managers of the company. In the final step of the interview they want you to learn about the service and give a presentation about it. Pretty straight forward.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Practical Law Company in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Went on two interviews. First with the VP of sales, second with HR. Not the most extensive interview process, they said in the beginning their style is informal and that I should make sure to tell them anything I want to tell them, seemed disorganized.

    Interview Questions
    • They seemed a lot more interested in what other kind of offers i had than in asking me about my experience or what I thought of the company.   Answer Question

    Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Practical Law Company in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to this open position by a current employee. The position was in the marketing department at this company. I applied online and it was about a week later that I was invited for an in-person interview with two managers. I did my homework and learned as much as I could about the company by reviewing their site and looking up the managers on LinkedIn. I was able to review their profile and past work experience. I did notice that neither of them had marketing experience. I kept that thought in the back of my mind. I went into the interview and they were rather pleasant. However, it was pretty obvious that neither knew how to interview a candidate properly. (Please see questions part). Also, there wasn't a clear sense of the responsibilities of the position. In fact, it wasn't even determined who would supervise this position (red flag #1). At one point, of the managers admitted blatantly that she had no marketing experience (red flag #2). I left the interview no knowing what to think. Surprisingly though the next day, I received an interview request to meet with the managers' boss, the VP and HR. For sure I thought this was a good sign. I met with the VP and he seemed like a great guy and boss. He was also very impressed with my work product. Next, I met with HR and was told about the benefits and salary. HR told me that I would hear back within a certain time frame. I never did and I had to follow up with HR. Then I finally received the notice from HR that I was not selected. There was a massive mistake in this form letter which indicates that there is no attention to detail. Even though I was kind of led to believe that I would get this position, I was not completely surprised that I did not get it. It was pretty obvious that I had more marketing experience than the managers who are lawyers (and I am not). Also, the position wasn't clearly defined and it has been posted for 2 months. What is taking so long to fill it? A lot of questions.

     I did not find the reviews of this company until just recently and everything I suspected was confirmed. I wish I found them earlier!
