James Scott Farrin is an amazing place to work, and this is coming from someone with the perspective of having worked for terrible management elsewhere. They do so much for their employees and really care about their employee's success. All members of upper management I have interacted with are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Beautiful office, great co-workers, and definitely somewhere I see myself working long-term. We get surprises like they'll bring in breakfast or lunch usually 1-2 times per month, and we have 12 different varieties of coffee that are free every day for employees (saves me money on Starbucks!). They expect a lot out of their employees, so don't apply unless you actually want to do a great job. I can tell JSF really cares about clients and they will go above and beyond to do anything for them.
I don't have any complaints. Career growth might not be as good as it could be, but besides that this place is great. I feel like a lot of these negative reviews - people really take the good stuff for granted and they just keep wanting more and more. There are far worse places to work....I know, because I've worked there!

Getting an Interview
Helpful (1)No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Law Offices of James Scott Farrin (Durham, NC).
Responded to a Craigslist ad when I was new to the area, not realizing at the time that this place ran ads non-stop due to a HUGE turnover. Was invited for an interview and met with a male attorney. The attorney did not even know what position I was interviewing for and he was unsure as to the qualifications and responsibilities. He was distracted throughout the entire process and said "Uhhh" a lot and kept answering his phone. This was probably one of the worst interviews I have sat through as I realized 2 minutes into it, that it was not going to go well. Although the attorney promised someone would either call or email me, regardless of the hiring decision, I did not hear from anyone. I was not surprised. I later found a (now defunct) website where people vented about their jobs. This particular firm had A LOT of negative postings from current and former employees. I was relieved that I did not get hired.
