    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith (San Francisco, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process began with a phone interview with the office manager. It was followed by an on-site interview with two partners in the practice group. I interviewed with both partners at the same time. It was relatively short - approximately 45 minutes - and they asked typical questions regarding my ability to bill and the importance of communicating with clients and follow-up.

    Interview

    First, I was interviewed in Los Angeles via OCI. I then got a call-back interview the next week and was interviewed at the office in San Francisco. It was fairly casual, but the questions were tough.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith.

    Interview

    Someone reached out to me after a linkedin submission, but there must have been a long delay because I did not even remember applying by the time they reached out. Interviewer was very nice and vibe was pretty casual. I interviewed with one jr. partner and it lasted a half hour or so. He asked for my writing sample after. They did throw out on the spot that they had a min. billable hours of 2100, which is on the high end. I had a pleasant interview but wasn't in love with the firm--they never followed up with me one way or the other and I never did either so I guess it was mutual. If you are waiting to hear back from them you should follow up because their recruitment doesn't seem all that on top of things. Overall I had a nice time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith.

    Interview

    You meet with the administrative assistant first. Then you speak with the office manager. Finally, you meet with the records director. The interview questions are pretty simple. I think as long as you do not bomb the interview, you have a high chance of getting hired. They are always looking for more people to add on.

    Applied via email, got an email back within 20 minutes scheduling an interview. Two rounds of interviews, one with the partner of the practice group, the other with the managing partner. Mostly just chatting, asking about who you are as a person and what you like to do.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Challenging to get a response from the Partner in charge of the section I for which I was applying. There would be months with no reply, then expressed interest because my skill set was a good match and I knew others with similar experience getting hired there, but then my emails would go unanswered again. I actually made it as far as the interview, once, and my references were checked and they expressed an interest in moving forward, but again, no further communication. It was very frustrating to never know where I stood in the hiring process. I eventually gave up.

The interview was incredibly positive, and everyone I spoke to was very welcoming and accommodating to me. I interviewed on a Friday and was extended an offer, which then was officially given to me by the HR manager two (business) days later.
