    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kobre & Kim in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had an on-campus interview, which took about 15 minutes total. Throughout the whole interview, they did not smile once and seemed in a hurry to finish the interview. Not at all engaging. The work itself seemed like a lot of tedious work, almost paralegal work but with a different title. Interview questions were predictable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Kobre & Kim in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on my university's career website. Was contacted about a month later by an HR representative who invited me to interview over the phone. The call took 25 minutes and was a basic review of the position, my resume, and a basic set of questions about how you work as a part of a team, your communication style, and your willingness to work for potentially guilty clients.

    Was invited to interview in office a couple days later. Flew to the office to interview with two people in the BD department. Really looking for a good fit-mostly behavioral questions.
