Legal Assistant Interview

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Skadden Arps.

Interview Details

The interview process was relatively basic with a phone interview and then a call back to interview at the company onsite. At the onsite interview I met with four different individuals from the human resources department. Most of the questions were basic background on my work experience, work ethic, life goals and situational questions. They are very honest about the long hours (70-80 hours weeks) that you will put in.

Interview Questions
  • The situational questions put you on the spot in how you would deal with difficult situations.   Answer Question
