Difficult Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Miller Thomson (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

Interview

My interview was very unprofessional. I was eager, early and prepared with materials. The interviewer was late, dry and unprepared. The questions were typical of any legal support interview I have attended. There were lots of scenarios and “how would you handle…” questions. As a complete surprise, I was told I had to do a test! I would think that after 5 years of legal experience in a superior role at a large firm, I would be exempted. However, this was not the case! The test was an English spelling and grammar test 4 pages long (double sided). I thought it was quite unprofessional to not advise in advance of a test requirement. My interviewer also did not have the test or some of the questions on-hand. The person excused themselves 2 times to retrieve materials from their office. They also said before administering my test, that I only had 10 minutes and that I should try to be quick because they had another interview lined up! Although the person was nice, they accidentally admitted that they already had a desired candidate for the position. Which I personally felt insulted by as I had to take an unpaid day-off to attend the interview and travel 2 hours via public transit to make the interview. Another thing I thought was unprofessional was that after each question, they then said what they were looking for that pertained to each question. This made me question why I was even answering, as I had no opportunity to explain how I met the qualification required! For example, I was asked something about team work, which I answered with being helpful doing medial tasks including printing, copying and binding, before I could finish, they told me they had a print centre where I can take all of that.
