    2 day interview process, not difficult at all. Day 1 - Met with the hiring partner and 5-6 associated on a 1:1 basis. Talked about law school and undergrad.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oliff Berridge (Alexandria, VA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I interviewed with 3-4 partners and the human resources administrator. I asked about their online reputation -- the bad reviews I had read. They were upfront and honest about their online reputation, but assured me that the reviews were dated and did not reflect the current culture of the firm. They were also honest about their expectations for core hours and mandatory lunch from 12-1. They explained how that worked for their firm.

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Oliff Berridge in May 2013.

    Interview

    Applied wit Jones Networking (do not use them). If they find you are looking elsewehre, they tell the HR at Oliff. I applied and was hired with in a week. There turnover rate is out of this world, especially In new application department. They will hire anyone. Do yourself favor, and go elsewhere unless you want to be miserable forever.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here? Are you interested in law school?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Always in need of Admins- Support Specialists and New Application Specialists. Will always try to low ball new graduates. If you have firm experience, that is a bonus, use to your advantage. Negotiate high because yearly raises are garbage. I took Support Specialist position because I needed a job bad and it did not seem too stressful (and is not). I had friends though that moved to New Applications and hated it. Whatever happens, do not go there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Oliff Berridge (Alexandria, VA).

    Interview

    I wouldn't describe it as an interview process, but more of a parade. There is no interview, but more of a meet-and-greet. After two to three rounds of phone interviews where you talk about what you have done in life, they fly you to the main office in Alexandria, Virginia. They ask you on Thursday or Friday if you can catch a plane on Tuesday morning. You meet with one of the head partners, who is pleasant but reeks of being overworked and harassed. He then parades you around to five or six life-time employees. They are all pleasantly surprised to meet you, seemingly unaware that you were being flown in to interview. You get to know each of them fairly well before being whisked away to the next person. Finally, you meet with an HR representative, who then lets you know if you will be meeting the executive board early the next morning. That entails meeting with people at a board room who actually ask you questions about your resume. I was led to believe that this was a rubber stamp.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult question was "tell me about yourself" because it is asked half a dozen times.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Oliff Berridge (Alexandria, VA).

    Interview

    The interview process has changed since I interviewed but for an administrative position, you will likely meet with the HR personnel and then with the manager of the department you are interested in.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    You could probably negotiate depending on how desperate they are but they are almost always desperate since the turnover rate is so high.
