    Staff Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was very disjointed. It required numerous interview rounds (many on-site) with as few as one interviewer per round. It was very inefficient and seemed disrespectful of the interviewees time. Interviews were very conversational, which didn't really add much value to either side. I didn't think the firm represented itself well in trying to impress me as the candidate. Many interviewers failed to show up, and those that did were not prepared at all.

    Interview Questions

    • There really weren't any specific challenging questions asked. It was a very conversational process through every round.   Answer Question

    Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman (Nashville, TN) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I received two telephone interviews for an opening at the Global Operations Center in Nashville. I had worked with a coach and was well-prepared for the questions. I was duly qualified for the job. It wasn't just my opinion; that same coach, also a recruiter, said if she were placing me she'd feel very upbeat about my chances. The response? Silence. I did not even receive the courtesy of a rejection.

    Interview Questions

    • Truly, I expected them all. Nothing surprised me because I'd worked so hard to prepare. They asked all the standard questions.   Answer Question

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman in July 2010.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume and received an actual phone interview call within 2 days. The personal and immediate response was excellant. An in person interview was then scheduled over the phone for early in the following week. Received an email confirmation of interview that afternoon. Interview took about an hour. Overall very plesant expereince but not challenging. I was told by the interviewer that if offered, follow up interviews would take place in 3 weeks.

    Then it went downhill. Upon arriving home (yes that day) from my interview I received a letter from the firm thanking me for my resume and that they could not extend the offer of an interview. I found this odd especially since I had passed the phone interview and had just returned from my one-on-one meeting. Since this letter was postmarked 2 days before my scheduled interview I chalked it up to an office error and awaited contact.

    And waited...After 4 weeks I followed up via email to see if I was being considered for a follow up interview. Have received no response even though the interviewer invited me to reach out to her with any quesiotns, etc.. Am still waiting to hear. Although I was initially very impressed they dropped the ball. Organizations should advise interviewed candidates ( not ignore them) of their status....position offered or not.
