    Associate Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Holland & Knight (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Met with 6 attorneys in groups of 2. Most of the Associates and Partners with whom I met seemed dissatisfied or downright angry, and I'm pretty sure it had nothing to do with me. It was clear none of them liked their jobs. All but 1 of the 6 with whom I met were unbelievably unfriendly. One of the Partners held up my writing sample between his thumb and forefinger as if it was a stinky diaper and asked "What is this?" I still don't know what he was attempting to communicate with the question, other than his general unpleasantness. Had they made an offer, I would've declined.

    Client Account Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Holland & Knight (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    Interviewed by 5+ people for a mindless job. They scare you into believing the job is more difficult than it really is. Ask about training-- they will make you think you will be sufficiently trained, but there is actually no formal training process.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Definitely negotiate salary/hourly pay. The pay is terrible. If I wasn't so desperate for a job at the time, I would have laughed and hung up the phone on their offer.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Holland & Knight (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Two rounds of interview - once with HR, second interview with a couple of attorneys. The interview with the HR manager was extremely easy. She basically goes over your resume and tells you about the job. If they like you, they get back to you quickly. The interview with the attorneys wasn't very difficult either. The want to know about your experience and whether you are already trained on certain computer programs. They generally want people with prior paralegal experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Holland & Knight (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Quick turnover, quick interview, basic questions. You expect the interview to be longer than it actually is; they are just looking for competence and prior experience. The process is very basic, and they only ask preliminary questions. Have a sense of what field of policy you are interested in, it'll help them see that you hope to gain from this job. There are many opportunities for growth within the firm and they will let you know what those opportunities are.
