    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Lowenstein Sandler.

    Interview

    I was recruited by an outside headhunter. I had 1 day of interviews with a handful of members of the department, starting with the hiring partner. I got the feeling that the other interviewers were just to provide some feedback but that ultimately the decision would be pretty much entirely made by the hiring partner of that group. All interviews were one on one, no panel interviews, and pretty standard law firm interview fare, nothing surprising. The HR or recruiting lead met me and shepherded me around. The attorneys were wearing anything from suits to business elegant/dressy casual, such as suits without a tie. As an applicant, you should definitely wear a suit and err on the conservative side if in doubt but it's definitely not the kind of firm where you need to show up in a high end designer suit with a handbag or briefcase that cost thousands of dollars. A traditional cut and dark color suit from Ralph Lauren, Nordstrom, Brooks Brothers, Ann Taylor, Theory, or Banana Republic or the like would suffice for an interview. The office is reasonably nice but not as luxurious or swanky as some of the white shoe NYC firms. The admins I interacted with were generally very nice. Among the lawyers there's a mix of high power, fancy name credentials and home grown (NJ) talent. They were very efficient in making a decision and I received a written offer letter.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing surprising. I was asked some in depth questions about accomplishments/work projects listed on my resume, and also pressed for relating my prior experience to the demands of the job I was seeking.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was a firm written offer but it wasn't negotiable. The associate classes apparently are all within a certain range of each other. The only thing somewhat negotiable was my start date.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lowenstein Sandler (Roseland, NJ) in December 2017.

    Interview

    They considered my resume which didn’t meet the exact requirements but they believed it might just be a good fit. I was happy they gave me a chance because I definitely have a special case resume. Only went through phone interview. Coleen was extremely sweet. I was asked very compelling questions. She was very transparent about the nature of the position and extending opportunities. The phone call alone made me want to be a part of the companies culture.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lowenstein Sandler (Roseland, NJ) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely organized and professional. After I had applied online, I received an email from the recruitment coordinator asking me to provide a brief description of my past work history. I then scheduled a phone interview with the recruitment manager (they were very understanding of my limited schedule).

    I had two on- site interviews with a few members of the team, everyone asked relevant and challenging questions. LS presented itself as a professional yet relaxed environment, with team members who enjoyed working with one another.

    Colleen was a joy to work with as she made the entire interview process run seamlessly. I am very pleased to have been offered the position and be a part of the LS community.
