    Legal Secretary Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Winston & Strawn in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Their hiring process can be somewhat ridiculous. They REQUIRED 65 wpm to the score on their typing test. What I mean by this is that if the person typed 64 wpm they would not be allowed to move to the next step. They also make it difficult for those that may be switching jobs. There is no real consideration for scheduling of interviews, length, or frequency. Even if you request the interview during certain times (knowing that you're currently employed) they will schedule it at whatever time they wish. They also have multiple interviews. First you come in for the testing, then to meet with the HR consultant, then the HR Manager and if you make it that far, you have to go in to meet with the lawyer you'll work with.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Winston & Strawn in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got opportunity to interview through a recruiter. It was a pretty laid back interview with 7 people. Only one of the attorneys was annoying with obvious questions that was self explanatory from my résumé. I got really good vibes from the atmosphere of the firm and the Office Adminstrator was great.

    Interview Questions
    • They didn't really ask me questions, it was more conversation base.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    They really stressed overtime and although I don't mind working it - I felt like they didn't offer me much flexibility.

    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Winston & Strawn in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    I felt as if it would be an inflexible place to work. I interviewed with a Paralegal Manager, whom I sensed would be a micro-manager if I decided to work with them. I felt that there would be a challenge with the ability to balance work and life. The worlk environment felt stuffy.
