    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Morgan Lewis (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process, including pre-interview communications is very formal. Candidates should be prepared to be exceptionally professional. I met with four attorneys throughout the day. The questions were not particularly difficult, but candidates should be prepared to articulate their career goals. I got the impression the firm wants very hardworking associates, so the candidates should be aware of how they project that quality.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Morgan Lewis (Princeton, NJ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Interview spanned about 3 hours with different people coming in at different times. Met with a total of six people. Questions mainly discussed background and work experience but nothing really substantive, which seemed strange for a mid-level associate position. Interviewers didn't really seem organized and my impression was they had been interviewing for this position for months. After interview, didn't hear anything for 4 weeks and then followed up. No offer and no feedback.

    Associate Attorney Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morgan Lewis in August 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was different from several other firms in that Morgan Lewis seemed to focus more on behavioral interview questions (e.g. – tell me about a time you had to work with someone difficult). The interviewers were very friendly/personable while also being professional. They emailed me some forms/items they requested be filled out in advance and seemed happy to see that I had everything ready at the start of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions were really unexpected. However, they did ask some very specific questions about past incidents (behavioral interview questions), so be prepared with several stories/examples.   Answer Question
