    I have been working at Milbank Tweed full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The firm has very smart people and offers diverse, sophisticated legal work. Lots of resources for learning more about your practice.

    Cons

    The hours can be long and the work flow can be hard to predict / irregular. But I think that is the case at any large law firm.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Milbank Tweed in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially they will call over the phone and do a pretty brief interview and schedule an appointment for an in person interview. During the in person interview you will do Prove It testing to test your skills in microsoft word, excel, spelling and grammar. These tests are not very difficult, especially for people fresh out of college. After completing testing you will meet with an HR person, heads of the legal assistant department and possible a legal assistant. The people are very friendly and generally conversational and pleasant. They are also very quick to tell you that long hours are expected and that there is a steep learning curve. If they like you, they will call you back for a second interview to interview with partners of a specific department to determine if they would like to place you there. Overall, the interview process is not typical of other large firms where the people can be very unfriendly and condescending. Just answer honestly and choose your words carefully and you will be fine.

    Interview Questions
    • Most people ask behavioral questions that therefore lead to personal questions. For example, "name a time where you had to deal with difficult people" or "what accomplishment are you most proud of." All other questions usually ask about prior work experience or things that you briefly commented on.   Answer Question
