Very straightforward. Panel interview, less than an hour. Offer was presented to me the next day. You interview with several teams, depending on which team has interest based on your resume. The interview asked standard questions.

I applied online. I interviewed at Berry Appleman & Leiden in Jul 2022

Interview

Absolutely terrible! During the phone screening not once was the interviewer asking about my experiences nor why I would want to work there. Instead the first thing he pointed out was the errors in my resume and how he didn’t like it was structured. Even after I told him that I submitted the wrong resume file. Huge red flag, to where I had to withdraw my application.

Interview

I talked with the recruiter via phone for a quick screening and she informed me that an onsite interview would be scheduled. I then had the onsite interview with the department manager, as the other person couldn't make it.

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Berry Appleman & Leiden (Santa Clara, CA) in Dec 2021

Interview

I applied directly to the job posting on the BAL website. An internal recruiter for the company reached out to me several days later to schedule a preliminary telephone interview. That was positive. Now, the negative. The recruiter rescheduled our interview only two hours prior to our meeting time. She then simply never called me at the time we rescheduled for the following week. I called her and left a voicemail as well as followed up with an email detailing the voicemail. The recruiter didn't respond to either message until the following day stating the position was given to an internal candidate. She states she called and left a voicemail, but I have no such records showing this attempt was made. I am left wondering if this level of disorganization is indicative of what can be expected with employment at BAL. I am hoping it is isolated to the department, or hopefully this one individual.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Berry Appleman & Leiden (Telephone, TX) in Sep 2021

Interview

I was invited to interview for the position of Immigration Paralegal I. I have a lot of experience and was well-qualified for the position, but the man who interviewed me (M.S.) seemed not to like the look of me and was rude and combative for the entire process. If I answered a question, he would try to turn it around and try to get me to argue that I was unqualified for the position. At some point I just gave up and stopped trying. I was really shocked at his attitude as I know some of the other attorneys who worked there, and they are great. It seems he prefers younger and smaller women to work for him. Take heed. I was not selected, but soon after received a better offer from a more respected firm. I am glad it worked out this way.

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Berry Appleman & Leiden (San Francisco, CA)

Interview

Relatively easy process. The first interview was a phone screening with someone from their recruiting department. The second interview was a Zoom call with an associate attorney, paralegal, and recruiting coordinator. I don't consider myself a great interviewer, but they made me feel comfortable and it went very smoothly.
