She made me feel really comfortable and it helped to set my nerves at ease! When it came to the testing part, she told me they gave me 30 minutes, but it was ok if I needed more time to complete the test. I would definitely recommend anyone seeking employment to give Lowenstein Sandler a try!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lowenstein Sandler (Roseland, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    There was no screener. I was emailed to schedule the in-office interview and was provided a list of interviewers a day or two before the interview. Upon arrival, I was led to a conference room, where I met with two partners and two associates for 30 minutes each. Typical law firm interview, no major surprises. Interviewers were mostly nice and engaged.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lowenstein Sandler (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    The telephone interview lasted about 45 minutes and I did not feel rushed. The interviewer from the Boston office was very patient and helpful. She asked if I was familiar with the firm and seemed genuinely proud to work there. I was glad I did my research because we spoke about the probono work for a bit.

    Associate/Counsel Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Lowenstein Sandler.

    Interview

    Met with practice group leader initially; followed by second round interviews with other partners and associates. However, I was directly recruited by a practice group leader so other experiences may differ.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Unsuccessfully attempted to negotiate for higher salary and in hindsight regret accepting the offer given the workload and hours expectations that followed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Lowenstein Sandler (New York, NY) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Worked through 3rd party recruiter. One interview, met with two practice group leaders (partners).

I had an offer within two weeks.
