Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cravath Swaine (New York, NY) in November 2011.

Interview

The interview process is grueling. You meet with various (3-5) partners during the day for up to hour or so each, with some associates sprinkled in for filler. You don't know in advance who you are meeting with so you cannot prepare for the specific partner. It is an exhausting day, but you will find out at the conclusion of the day whether you have received an offer for a summer job, which is pretty worth it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cravath Swaine (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Came in as a lateral hire upon a former partner's recommendation so interview process was very relaxed and different from traditional recruitment process. Interview was with two recruitment partners - very conversational and fit-based. Offer made on the spot with emailed offer letter the following day.
