    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at NBA.

    Interview

    There are two rounds. One face to face and one via telephone. They ask you to speak about yourself, which department you see yourself working in, etc. You are most likely contacted right before thanksgiving or after in regard to if you will proceed to the next round. It was a great experience overall.

    Associate Counsel Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at NBA.

    Interview

    Brief phone screener, friendly but down to business. Screener seemed to just be a quick assessment to get a sense background before further conversations with group. Was told resume would be passed on and regardless would hear either way on next steps but never heard back despite follow up. Got the impression that legal skills need to be a 100% match to the role and heavy transactional experienced preferred, as legal positions at NBA are highly competitive and coveted. Very long lag between application and interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions about background, qualifications, and why NBA. Why interested in leaving current role, etc. Nothing unexpected.   Answer Question

    Applied thru employee referral. HR called the very next day to discuss my qualifications, JD, salary expectations, and etc. Right after the call, received an email saying if I can come in for a in-person interview with hire manager that afternoon. Went in, good talk with the manager. Mostly behavioral questions. Thought the interview went really well, but never heard back again.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NBA (Evanston, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The process entailed a brief interview where you go over most of the basic resume-reviewing questions. There were two possible interviewers, and mine was relatively warm and easy to talk with. Toward the end of the interview there is a bit of a personality test, but it is not bad at all.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NBA (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for a couple positions in June and received a phone call from a recruiter a couple days later. She was very nice and said I may not be a fit for one of the jobs I applied for but an executive position role was going to be posted in a couple days. I applied for the position and from that point the communication was great between myself and the recruiter. I heard from her every couple days with status updates which I appreciated since most place won't do that. My first in-person interview was actually via skye with one of the SVP's I would be supporting. After that I was invited to the NYC office for an actual in-person interview with another SVP I would be supporting. This SVP was so nice and I could tell I would love working with her. A few days later I was invited back for a final interview with the final SVP I would be supporting. Going back was going to require me to take additional time off from work (to allow for plenty of travel time into NYC) and I was just too busy to make that work. In addition to the amount of time I was taking away from work to interview with the NBA I wasn't entirely sure I wanted to fall back into an executive assistant role. I was hoping to move on from that. Ultimately, I had to cancel and decline the office to come in for the final round of interviews. It was a hard decision to make since I really did like the SVP's I did have the pleasure of meeting, especially the 2nd one during my in-person meeting.
