    IP Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Madison, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Foley & Lardner (Madison, WI).

    Interview

    In hindsight, not forthcoming in the least bit about the intensity of the role nor very informative on the volume of work received on a daily basis. Huge omissions of information about training, on-boarding and process to best inform potential candidates about the true and honest demands of this role. Multiple rounds and follow ups that were so short-sighted in assisting making an informed decision about taking the role or not. I had I been informed honestly of this IP Assistant role of which I discovered within weeks of starting, I would have never pursued it. After 16 years in legal, I know garbage when I smell it. 5 interviews total that began with a phone screen.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Foley & Lardner (Washington, DC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume on their website and was contacted a couple days later for an in-person interview. I first took a skills test - typing, grammar and Word knowledge which took about an hour. Second I met with the Legal Support Supervisor who talked about the position and later the office manager came in. I spent 3 hours there total. It's been almost 2 months and I haven't heard back. When I contacted them a month ago, they were still interviewing. If you call a candidate in for interviews, get back and let them know whether they are still be considered. I have since lost interest regardless of hearing from them again or not.

    Associate Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Foley & Lardner.

    Interview

    Typical law firm interview process - 1/2 day, one on one. no lunch. Some of the partners on videoconference didn't want to discuss law at all - not sure if they were bored or were interested in m previous jobs. Head partner had solid questions, seemed very invested. Downside seemed to be that they were very worried about laterals not wanting to stay long term - was asked multiple times and seemed there was no definitive reassurance that could be given.
