    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Debevoise & Plimpton (New York, NY).

    Started with a phone interview, lasted about 15 minutes with someone from HR.

    They then invited me in for an in person interview, this was with a manager, fairly informal, lasted about an hour though.

    The final interview was with a director. Semi-formal, lasted 25 minutes, just gave me more info about the department.

    Offered me the position contingent on a background check, after about 3 days I cleared backgrounds.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Debevoise & Plimpton (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Met with collections supervisor and manager . Interviewers explained job functions and tasks and went into great detail on working hours during busy season.

    Only negative with this experience was not hearing back either way . I don't think I've ever had an organization not at least acknowledge that I took a meeting. Left not the best impression of this firm from a interview / potential new hire view point

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Debevoise & Plimpton (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process is incredibly easy. You get asked 1-2 technical questions (and that is because the people hiring no NOTHING about technology) and the rest are all personal questions. Easy to land a job if you get the interview. They ask for people that are pretty senior in the job req but the work is really entry level.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions were pretty much unexpected because it was more of a conversation about life than a job interview.   Answer Question
