    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Orrick (Washington, DC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I met with three lawyers from the group. The first round of two lawyers was interested in my background and interest in working at the firm. During the second round, right off the bat the partner asked me how I would feel if I have to perform her personal errands. I was perplexed. Was not sure whether she was serious, she was.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Orrick (San Francisco, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen with recruiter, two phone interviews with hiring manager (job location different from manager's location), phone interview with manager's manager, onsite interview with multiple staff, positive feedback with request for references (provided), then ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. To go that far through the interview process, then be dropped without a word is absolutely insulting.

They will do a conflict check before each project. Having a conflict does not bar you from other projects where a conflict does not exist. They are in desperate need of contractors.
