    Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at King & Spalding (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    My process began reaching out to attorneys in my desired practice group. That let to two individual phone interviews with partners in the practice group (each about 20-30 min).

    A few weeks later, I was received an offer for a callback interview at the Atlanta office. I met with ten attorneys throughout the day, beginning at 9:30 and ending around 2:30pm. I had a mix of video conferences with attorneys in the New York office as well as personally meeting attorneys in the Atlanta office. Each meeting was 30 min, but the in-person meeting always had both a Partner and an Associate.

    The interview schedule included a lunch (again with a partner and an associate) at a nearby
    restaurant within walking distance.

Interview probably took 20 minutes. There were no legal type questions. The interviewer was very nice, but I could tell I was not going to get a call back from his demeanor.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at King & Spalding (Austin, TX) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Technical Skills review, in person interview with both hiring managers and a recruiting firm. Working as well with the coordinator in the office, they were looking for real experience, mostly in the technical setup of the new office. Friendly staff, awesome firm and a beautiful office! I suggest interviewing with the firm, but be prepared to apply your knowledge to the law field in particular, if possible for you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at King & Spalding (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Two in-person interviews; one with 2 associates, the other with mostly partners. Everyone was pretty much nice, except for one partner who seemed unncessarily suspicious. I think I did a good job of creating rapport with the interviewing attorneys, looked presentable, liked the people, but still did not get the offer for some reason.
