    Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newton, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Harmon Law Offices (Newton, MA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Quick interview focused on ability to quickly turn work around and remain detail oriented. One issue that was a constant presence in the process was how quickly you could learn the process and excel in that framework. The offer was firm and standardized, no room for negotiation.

    Foreclosure Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newton, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Harmon Law Offices (Newton, MA) in August 2009.

    Interview

    I first met with a human resources manager, who asked general questions, then later met with the attorney supervisor. It was a pretty standard interview. The people I met were very cordial, and the front desk staff was very courteous and friendly, which helped overcome the initial somewhat intimidating atmosphere of a very secured facility with two key card access doors, including a glass wall separating the office from the lobby (a very necessary precaution considering their line of work).

    Interview Questions

    • There were no real difficult or unexpected questions, just the standard interview questions you would expect.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I was told very clearly that they would only offer me a certain amount, and I was told that another candidate did not work out because he tried to negotiate. If you are satisfied with the offer, take it. If not, you may want to look elsewhere, because there are always a ton of beginning attorneys who will be willing to accept whatever they offer and they know that. (This is just the reality of this economy.)

    Interview

    I was called by someone at the Law Firm and they reviewed my qualifications shortly and asked me to come in for an interview. I met one of the attorneys that supervised her section. The law office is medium in size. It is clear that they are full of attorneys and paralegals. There are cubicles everywhere and the supervising attorney looked like she had a lot of work piled on her desk.

    Reasons for Declining

    The salary at this firm was below average and it looked like a very stressful position with a lot of turn over.
