    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Very casual and friendly - they're looking for a good culture fit.

    Just asked the usual questions, ie. Why you'd like the role, what experience makes you a good fit for the position.

    One negative - even if your interviewer says you're good to go / have the job, it can take a while for things to be officialised through HR.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MinterEllison (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Translation test, then straight to a panel interview with 2 people. Mainly CV based and the usual competency based questions. They had a short session where I needed to speak in mandarin (as I applied for the Hong Kong internship). Wasn't hard, and the overall atmosphere of both the firm and the interview was pretty relaxed.
