    Assistant Paralegal I Interview

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

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fragomen Worldwide (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    It was a pretty straight forward process and similar to most described here. Filled out an online application and a recruiter contacted me to do a short phone interview where they asked very standard questions and gave some info about the position. She said that she would follow up if they wanted to bring me in for an interview which she did a few days later.

    For the first interview I met with 4 different people for about 20/30 minutes each, which was a bit intimidating but everyone was very friendly and it was a good opportunity to learn more about the job and also puts a little less pressure on each individual interview since you meet with many different people. A few days later the recruiter contacted last again and set up second round interviews where it was the same process but with partners of the firm and this time 3 instead of 4.

    All in all a somewhat lengthy process but not too bad. Just have to do your homework before.

    Talent Acquisition Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fragomen Worldwide (Boston, MA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email to schedule an interview the next day.

    The process was very simple. The recruiter lacked energy and was very straight forward. There were no curveball questions.

    The call turned into the recruiter strongly trying to sell me on the opportunity because salary expectations were not aligned. This goes hand and hand in what I have read about the benefits available and did not surprise me at all.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Fragomen Worldwide (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    First you get a call from HR and they just ask you a few common interview questions. Then you go for an in person interview. There I interviewed with a HR person and then 3 senior paralegals. They were very nice and asked simple questions. They really want you to stay for at least 2 years since most paralegals plan on going to law school.

    Assistant Paralegal I Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fragomen Worldwide (Matawan, NJ) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone conversation after I submitted my application. About 2 weeks later I went in person to the Matawan office where 3 people interviewed me. There was supposed to be 4, but one was sick that day. They asked me the same questions and explained the same ideas about the company, so I wasn't sure how much coordinating happened among these people since they interviewed me separately, one after the other. In the end, I didn't get it because they told me that I did not have enough experience for the position.
