    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Weil Gotshal.

    Interview Details

    The process was fairly cut and dried, though I was a bit in the dark about whether or not I got the job until the last minute. In the end I was slightly disappointed by my rate, but it was fair for the job.

    This is very annoying...I only wanted to write one review but this website is making me submit other reviews just to submit the original one. Now I have to write a minimum of 50 words to make sure this one goes through. Oh well, what a waste of time for everyone.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Weil Gotshal in January 2010.

    I applied online but probably would not have been interviewed had I not been referred by an employee. Once they contacted me to come in for an interview, the whole process was pretty straight forward.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. 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.
