    Legal Secretary Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Greenberg Traurig (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Unlike many of the large firms, they did not require a video interview or extensive skills testing prior to an in-person interview (with HR only). Very nice people and a really professional environment. This initial interview was pretty informal. They asked general questions about experience, skills and your interest in the firm. I did attempt to follow up about the application process about a week after my interview and never heard back, but that is not terribly unusual and I did not feel heavily invested in my chances given the informality of my interactions with them. It seems like a nice place to work, there seem to be a lot of long-term employees, at least in this office.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Greenberg Traurig.

    Interview

    Interviewed with five people, first a phone vetting with a recruiter and then in person in two back-to-back interview sessions. First in-person pair was with the person that would be my direct supervisor and a colleague of his on his level. Second pair was two members of senior leadership. First pair of interviews were more in depth - asking standard questions about qualifications, asking for my level of experience in certain job-related tasks. Second pair was more personality vetting. Few questions, shorter interviews. The interview sessions were about two weeks apart.

    Accountant Position Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Greenberg Traurig (Philadelphia, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The HR interviewer was very kind and easy to speak with. I enjoyed the interview I had with him. He made the job sound interesting and was helpful with any questions. I thought it was great and got the second, in person interview. The manager that I would interview in person with called and I made sure I was available the very next day to meet with him. I thought the in person interview went great. I was very respectful and it seemed to go great. I am giving it a negative overall experience because the manager said he would let me know and never did. It has been a month and still not one word from him after he told me he would let me know repeatedly. HR was again helpful, and empathetic so I appreciate that. If the interviewer says "I'll call you in a week" they should do what they say.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Greenberg Traurig (Boston, MA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    People were very friendly and obliging. I met with three different people on the staff and all three were engaging and very friendly. They offered me drinks, and made sure that I was comfortable. It felt a lot more like a conversation than other interviews have, though it did end up with a lot of information being repeated over and over since I met with 3 different people, one after the other with no briefing in between.
