Litigation Assistant Interview

Litigation Assistant

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Weil Gotshal in May 2011.

Interview Details – The office had a very laid back atmosphere. The people take pride in what they do and their results show as a whole with their firm. They are especially looking for motivated, enthusiastic individuals who are ready to take the job on right away. They are very honest with the fact that there is plenty of overtime. There was only one interview in which I was required to talk to three different paralegals 1:1 and then finally with the HR manager.

Interview Question – What are you three greatest weaknesses and your three greatest strengths?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Starting salary was not negotiable at all, however, they are one of the industry leaders and were quite generous with their starting salary anyways for an entry-level position.
