Summer Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Application Details

I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Schulte Roth & Zabel.

Interview Details

You can apply online or through your law school if it participates in an interview program where the firm attends. There is a short, initial, 20 minute interview. Then, presumably, there are some follow-up communications, callback interviews at the office with other attorneys, and then offers.

Interview Questions
  • "Let's say I go back to management and say that I have this candidate who is very bright and would do well in the job. They are concerned that he (you) will come to the firm, stay for a few years, take advantage of our training programs, and then leave us to go somewhere else. How should I respond?"   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Schulte Roth & Zabel in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview was arranged through my school's Off-Campus Interview program. I met with a partner who then reviewed my resume, writing sample, and transcript on the spot and began to ask questions concerning my resume. He spent much time talking himself and did not appear interested in even conducting the interview; got the feeling he was there not by choice. He rarely made eye contact when speaking with me and answered my questions with standard, neutral answers about firm culture, turnover, layoffs, etc. It was an unavoidable question as the firm had been laying off associates, so I had to ask if being a summer associate meant there was a chance I would not receive an offer for full-time employment. Turns out that is the case.
